November 14 will be a day that John Schimkaitis, Heather Cozart and Jared Cozart never forget as they enshrined themselves in the FishingNosara Hall of Fame with a legendary BILLFISH GRAND SLAM!
First up was John nabbing a 100lbs. Sailfish, released early in the trip, completing the first leg of the Grand Slam.
Then a 100lbs. Striped Marlin came calling around noon; not the biggest specimen we’ve ever seen but Jared’s catch still counts as the second piece of the Grand Slam.
Finally it was Heather’s turn on the reel for a MASSIVE Blue Marlin estimated by Mate Kevin upon release to be well over 350lbs.
The action was so hot on the Discoverer that the scorecard shows more than just Billfish releases; a good array of Dorado and Yellowfin Tuna means that these North Carolina anglers will be able to replenish their strength at the dinner table.
Fantastic work by Captain Carlos and the unbeatable battleship Discoverer!
