Gene and Betty Baker scored the fish-of-a-lifetime on the 13th with Captain Alex and Mate Kevin.

This big bad Black Marlin put on a show as she came into the boat, but Captain Alex’ boat handling skill kept the fight short and safe.

Excellent fish handling by Mate Kevin means that we’ll see this monster again in the future.

Later in the morning Betty brought home dinner with this excellent Yellowfin Tuna.

Captain Carlos welcomed Texas angler Shane Buck to the Discoverer on April 2 and delivered one of the nicest Marlin releases of the season.

This Black Marlin is a true Pacific monster!

Shane followed it up with a nice Sailfish:

Here’s what he posted on Facebook: “Top notch group. Crew worked their asses off even on a slow day we caught fish! They made it happen!”

Texas angler Brandy Willis brought her fun-loving group down to Nosara for an action-packed week of blue water fishing action.

This high-flying Blue Marlin was the first fish of the day for the flagship, and the action would stay hot throughout the day.

Next up with this aggressive flying Sailfish, which managed to spit the hook after a series of acrobatic leaps.

 

Awww, shucks!

Fortunately the bite stayed good, as evidenced by this tasty Dorado for the dinner table caught by Dustin Purvis.

Our long time friends Ken and Brenda Russell were back on the water for another great day of action on the Wanderer.

Several big Dorados got the action started early, and in the afternoon a fierce Blue Marlin hit the hooks.

Great work by Captain William to keep the fight short and excellent fish handling by Mate Johnson.
