Javier Hernandez aka ‘Rey Robalo’ reeled in this excellent Snook in mid-January.
Most of the boats are on the hill for their annual refit and repaint to prepare for the new season. But Javier and Grevan felt the fishing itch, so they took the Transporter out to the reef and scored a boatload of Yellowfin Tunas in just under two hours.
That’s right, the Transporter…our 14-foot ferry boat that our clients know well from the trip from Playa Garza out to the boats.
Well, um….two things here: 1.) This is the boat record for the Transporter, and 2.) You know how we always say you don’t need a big boat to catch big fish in Nosara? This is what we are talking about.
Craig Sutton and Javier went fishing on the 11th with Captain Fico, along with a special guest: Javier’s seven-year old son Dario.
Fans of this fishing report already know that Dario is a master of river mouth fishing, however this Sailfish represents his first billfish release.
Great work by young Dario!
Erick Burke had a fun day of catching at the Nosara River mouth on July 12.
“Killer trip last week,” wrote Erick. “Special thanks to Javier for showing me the ropes and mixing me in with the locals!”
Here is local angler Chimpy with his catch:
Javier Hernandez aka Rey Robalo continued his reign with these awesome Snook scores on July 23.
His catches were more than a handful, with this Jack Crevelle (above) backed up with several monster Snooks.
How about this mammoth:
Also local angler Casar Vargas pulled this monster Amberjack from the river mouth in mid-June.
Javier scored again with more great action at the Nosara River Mouth. This Snook and Jack score means filets and ceviche, respectively.
El Jefe Javier Hernandez scored an amazing 15.5kg (35.1 lbs.) Snook at the Nosara River Mouth on the 16th.
Rey Robalo is a conservationist and as such chose to release this monster alive.
