FishingNosara Hall of Famer Bill Harris has returned and brought a big group of Tampa Bay anglers with him for several days of blue water fishing in Costa Rica.
Discoverer, the team of Eli Bedran, Andrew Lipps, Kelsey Harry and Laurie Harry report a fantastic Blue Marlin release (the first of the year for the big battleship) backed up by six nice Dorados.
These are real deck-sweeping Dorados!
Great work by Captain Carlos and Mate Kevin!
Excellent video arriving from our friends Paul Arthur and Ricky Kay. These guys brought their own camera crew along for their fishing adventure and the resulting video is awesome:
Great work by Captain Alex, Captain David (of the
Adventurer) filling-in at the mate position, and of course these great Texas anglers.
Discoverer is powering through the so-called rainy season with a great day of fishing with angler Ken Burns on September 6. The highlight of the day was this beautiful Blue Marlin.
They also scored a nice Double Sailfish release:
They added one more Sailfish near the end of the trip.
Amazing work by big battleship
Captain Alex entered the closing stretch of the white-hot August bite with a wonderful Blue Marlin release on the 25th.
Angler Stuart Smith bested this bad boy, and it was just the beginning of a banner day.
Captain Alex handled the safe release, complete with his signature move: the Kiss Goodbye:
A big Yellowfin Tuna came along, and then a nice team of Dorados also found the fishbox.
As if there arms weren’t worn out by this time, a paid of late-day Sailfish came calling and fought bravely all the way to the safe releases.
Awe-inspiring day on the water by the mega panga
Mike Murphy of Jon Matula’s posse kept up the great fishing with a fun day of action on August 15 with the
Discoverer. This highlight was this awesome Marlin release.
They also added to the world-class billfish release with these tasty Dorados:
Mike sent us this nice note: “Great fishing and great place to stay. All of my group enjoyed it.”
Our old friend Jon Matula has returned to Nosara and is rolling about 14 deep. His group spread out across several boats on the 13th, and the group on the
Discoverer posted some great Yellowfin Tuna catches.
These were backed up by a nice Dorado and a sweet Blue Marlin release.
Craig Sutton finished off a good week of fishing by taking advantage of the best bite of the year.
His five-hours on the
Discoverer was highlighted by this nice Marlin release backed up with a sweet Sailfish.
We had an epic day with Alex on the Harvester this morning,” wrote Ryan Doersam on August 3.
“A Sailfish double header less than 30 minutes after dropping the lines followed by a 200+lb Marlin about 10 minutes after we released the Sailfish.”
Great job by Captain Alex and the mega panga
