August 3rd was a banner day for angler Peter Petrassi and his group. They scored Sailfish early and often.
These fish were fired-up and put our tackle to the test…this rod wasn’t up to snuff:
Mate Kevin was busy all day keeping these billfish under control and safely released.
Everyone got multiple shots at these wonderful pelagic behemoths.
To top it off they scored a double Dorado hook-up and brought home lots of nice filets for dinner.
Texas angler Marte Martinez brought his whole family down to Nosara for a fun week of fishing action, and the Harvester delivered the goods on their trip in early August.
The highlight of the trip was an awesome Sailfish release, expertly captured and released by Mate Kevin.
The Harvester welcomed angler Phillip Beyer for a productive morning of fishing.
This super Sailfish release was the jewel of the trip, which also included this tasty Dorado:
The Harvester hooked up a nice Marlin in late-July, but lost it alongside the boat after a 15 minute fight.
Undeterred, they scored a sweet Sailfish release a few hours later in the afternoon.
Great work by the ‘Never Surrender’ Captain Alex!
The Harvester nabbed a world-class Black Marlin with clients Paul Szilvassy, Lisa McElninney and Tom McElninney.
This monster was backed up by a few nice Dorados for the dinner table.
Marc Acker had a big day of action on the Harvester. The highlight of the morning was this swole Dorado.
A second big Dorado was fresh on the heels of the first catch.
The highlight of the afternoon was this big bad Black Marlin release.
Estimated over 400lbs., this mean beast put up a heck of a fight…still no match for the Mega Panga.
Cale Hensel spent the afternoon with Captain Alex and in just 2.5 hours hooked up a big Rooster Fish backed up by a nice Yellowfin Tuna.
Tracy Solomon struck again on the 21st with a sweet Yellowfin Tuna score.
Then the action really heated up with a swarm of Sailfish releases.
Captain Alex welcomed Raymond Plumb for an afternoon 2.5 hour trip, not enough time to head offshore but enough time ply the inshore reefs for a monster Cubera Snapper.
James Frye experienced MARLIN MANIA on the Harvester with two mammoth releases care of the Mega Panga.
One of these behemoths is clearly the fish-of-a-lifetime, but to score two in one day is truly legendary.
Amazing work by Captain Alex to hunt these monsters down and by Mate Kevin to seamlessly execute the releases.
