At FishingNosara we keep security guards on the boats overnight; it’s a tough job, with long hours keeping lookout. Recently they have spotted something unusual: Big Snook hanging out under the boats just before sunrise.

Javier aka Rey Robalo took his son Dario and boatman Fito out in the Transporter on the 20th and found out the stories from the guards were correct:

This 33lbs. Snook is just a taste…on the same adventurer he hooked up to a five-foot long Snook.

He lost him this time, but we will see if this Loch Ness Monster of a Snook is real soon enough.

Nosara Paradise Rentals GM Javier Hernandez and Cheif Engineer Marino Lora brought their families along for a refreshing day of offshore fishing on February 12.

The Wanderer reports several Sailfish releases and a nice Dorado for the fishbox.

After a year of hardships, it’s great to see the ‘Pura Vida‘ spirit alive and well in Nosara.

The Hernandez Family Vacation took to the Discoverer on the 23rd, as three generations of the family all caught fish.

Sra. Jesus is well-known to our guests who have visited her house on the Horseback Mountain tour, and now it appears that Yellowfun Tuna is on the menu.

Young Dario finished off the evening with another nice Yellowfun Tuna.

Everyone know the the Hernández family is synonomous with FishingNosara. That’s why is was a great honor to welcome Maria Montiel Hernández for a fun fishing vactaion in late January.

Over on the Explorer, Maria nabbed a nice Yellowfin Tuna.

She also had fun at the River Mouth as Javier aka Maria’s cousin aka Rey Robalo brought two more Snooks under his domain.

Looking good!

The first day of the season filled the refrigerator with Yellowfin Tuna filets, so on the second day Craig and Javier went hunting for trophy fish.

Javier belted up for the first Sailfish of the day. This crazy beauty was darting back in forth above the water.

After a nice battle she was safely released as always.

Craig was next into the breach and waged an epic battle with a big Blue Marlin.

Dario Hernandez joined his father for this trip and snagged a few sandwich-sized Dorado filets.

This trip was also a training run for Mate Antonio, who most of our clients know as our panga boat driver; he will be assuming the mate’s role on the Explorer this year, and will be training with Captain Alex on the Harvester to continue improving his skills.

Our crew has been busting their butts on the Casa Bianca build, so they took a Saturday morning trip inshore to clear their minds and fill the refrigerator.

Javier, Antonio, and Cruz Reyes used old-fashioned handline rigs to bring in these beautiful Cubera Snappers.

Looks like many families in Nosara will be eating well tonight.
