The Harvester welcomed one of FishingNosara’s oldest friends Roche Jaggeli of Playa Avellanas for a great day of action on June 6.
Roche has fished with us since the very beginning of FishingNosara and it’s always a treat when he comes south to visit us.
The day’s haul was highlighted by three big Yellowfin Tunas (60lbs., 34lbs., and 26lbs.) and of course the MASSIVE 54lbs. Dorado.
Craig and Captain Alex deployed the classic live-bait Cubera Snapper Tactic to perfection, yielding this 41lbs. monster late in the day on June 5.
Captain Alex welcomed Javier out for an afternoon of ‘company research’ on May 27, and the mega panga loaded up on the suddenly-plentiful Yellowfin Tunas.
All of these Yella Fellas is a great sign moving forward as we enter our second season.
Troy Smith, Michelle Urso, Gus Harrison, and Cheryl Bluerock scored a ‘fourfecta’ of Sailfish releases with Captain Alex and Mate Kevin on the Harvester.
Ms. Bluerock is a pro photographer and put some really neat filters on these shots.
They also brought home dinner with this awesome Yellowfin Tuna.
Great work by the mega panga!
The Harvester had a perfect day of inshore / offshore combo action, starting with a wonderful Rooster fish released inshore:
Then Captain Alex moved offshore to stalk the recently abundant Yellowfin Tunas with great success:
As the month continued our area was beset by gigantic meat fish.
Fighting these guys on Penn spinning tackle is a world of fun, and the filets are top-notch.
After this Yellowfin Tuna score, the Harvester dug in on one of the biggest Bull Dorados of the year to date.
This hatchet-headed monster was no match for the mega panga!
The evening rains in early May had a profound effect on the inshore fishery, as cool nutrient rich water flows into the sea from the network of rivers around Garza and fires up the near-shore species.
Check out this mammoth Rooster fish release, caught just minutes before the end of an afternoon trip on May 1.
Captain Alex nabbed a super high-flying Saifish to close out the month of April.
Perfect fish handling on the release by Mate Kevin means that we’ll see this energetic fish again soon.
