The other half of Adam LeMaster’s group was on the Discoverer on the 11th, and angler Roger Salinas managed to one-up the flagship with this feisty Blue Marlin release.
Excellent work by Captain Carlos and Mate Kevin to round up this monster…they also add a Sailfish release later in the trip:
Like the other group, they stocked up on Dorado filets.
However they upped the ante with multiple awesome Yellowfin Tunas on ice.
Great job by the big battleship!
The Discoverer delivered the goods for angler Dean Givens and his crew on January 10. They ran the gamut of species, highlighted by this awesome Blue Marlin release.
That big monster was followed up by a nice Sailfish release.
The group also stocked up the refrigerator. This big Yellowfin Tuna was complimented by several nice Dorados.
Amazing all-around action on the big battleship!
The Discoverer finished off 2018 with a bang, courtesy of this monster 350lbs. Blue Marlin release.
Angler Bob Brescia battled this beastie all the way to a safe release, and then followed up with two nice Sailfish releases.
They also added this tasty Dorado for the dinner table.
Amazing work all-around by Captain Carlos and the big battleship!
Captain Carlos on the big battleship Discoverer knocked it out of the park on the 26th with angler Ted Markow and his family. This mystery billfish led off the action:
Juvenile Striped Marlin or Spearfish? we aren’t sure but it was a fun fish to fight. They also nabbed several Sailfish releases. This was young Piper’s first Sailfish:
For the dinner table the kids grabbed a nice Dorado and a fine Yellowfin Tuna.
Great job by this fun fishing family.
Captain William delivered the goods for Julie Radley’s family on the 23rd, highlighted by this stunning Blue Marlin release early in the day.
After the wonderful release by Mate Johnny, Captain William kept trolling and nabbed several nice Dorados.
Great work by the mighty flagship Wanderer!
Matty was on board the mighty Wanderer on December 18 and battled a MASSIVE Black Marlin for two hours.
This monster hit around 3:00pm and fought until sunset, when after several leader grabs finally broke the hook right next to the boat.
We see around five of these size Marlin per year, and is clearly the biggest fish Matty ever caught.
The flagship didn’t go home empty handed, thanks to this nice Dorado from early in the day.
All smiles on the way back in.
Great work by Captain William and the mighty Wanderer.
John Hickson returned to the battleship the next day and upped the ante with more great meat fish.
A big Dorado is a nice follow-up to the previous day’s catch, plus a nice Yellowfin Tuna (rare for this time of year) adds variety.
The final catch of the day was also the highlight; This small Blue Marlin release was a great send off to a fun day of fishing.
November 23 started a little slow for Craig and the Harvester, but the long morning gave way to an action-packed afternoon.
This 250+lbs. Marlin hit the starboard teaser like a bomb and put up a strong fight. The Harvester prevailed with a sweet release after a 30 minute fight.
Great fish-handling by Captain Alex to see the safe release of this monster.
