Janae finished her fishing vacation in with FishingNosara with another outing on the 26-foot Super Panga Explorer with Captain David and Mate Pipio. She added to her previous billfish releases with another excellent Sailfish at around 1:30pm.

Later on she had a nice Wahoo and but it shot like a missle and broke the line; shades of fishing stories from the Ledge back home in Jacksonville. They moved inshore to end the day and caught a few nice Black Tunas.

Here is the email she sent us once she got home:

“What an awesome time we had in Nosara! The fishing was so fun and Nosara is a great little place!! We are already talking about when we can come back! I just wanted to thank you again for answering my millions of questions and helping me prepare!! Can’t wait to come back again!!! Pura Vida!!!”

Amazing day on the Explorer for client Janae visiting from Florida. She represented the Sunshine State well on her first day by scoring some meaty Dorados, but today she had one thing on her mind: Offshore Billfish Hunting!

Captain David and Mate Carlos took the 26-foot brawler about 6 miles out the blue water when a flock of diving birds led the way for the Explorer into a feeding frenzy.

The first Sailfish came up and annihilated a long shotgun bait and Janae took him on a quick ride to the boat for this excellent release shot.

No sooner than Carlos could get the baits back in the water than the Sailfish’s hunting buddy came calling. Captain David had to back this fish down quickly because of the amount of line it peeled off with the initial strike; still the team of Captain David on the wheel and Janae on the reel wrapped up this fight in 20 minutes.

Great releases by Mate Carlos to ensure the safety of fish, boat and angler. Let’s see what Janae has in store for them later this week as she wraps up her birthday getaway in Nosara, Costa Rica.

Jacksonville angler and Florida Sportsman calendar model Janae had a great morning on the 26-foot Super Panga Explorer. She is in Nosara celebrating her birthday and thankfully the fish decided to attend the party.

She got into town from Florida late last night and then hit the water first thing in the morning…that’s how we fish in Duval, folks.

Captain David reports that she caught a pair of 40lbs. Mahi-Mahi and that she was super-stoked to have some fish for the fridge.

Janae will be fishing again on Monday and we’ll see how things go offshore; the way this week has gone it’s fair to say that things should be poppin’.
