Dan Johnson from Hatteras, NC took his three Immigration Officer friends Antonio Carrillo,
Luis Rodriguez Valdez and Carlos Ramirez Garcia for a day on the Explorer.

It was Luis’ and Carlos’ first day ever fishing in the ocean.

Everyone had a great time catching groupers and exotic bottom fish

At the end of the trip they had a great meal at Marlin Bills with the catch.

From the “Small World” department:

Dan Johnson from Hatteras was happy to welcome his new friend Antonio Carrillo to fish with him on Wednesday the 24th.

They met at the immigration line in Liberia airport last year while Dan was wearing a Fishing Nosara shirt when Antonio called him next in line
After many questions from Antonio, Dan said he fishes with Fishing Nosara and William Mendoza is my captain of many years

Antonio quickly said he is my father

It’s a small world

Dan has been trying to get Antonio to fish with him on a day off from the immigration police and it worked out great to fish with his father.

So on February 24, the Wanderer welcomed this most distinguished guest:

This may be a vacation for Officer Carillo, but the same can’t be said for the fish…the family scored over ten Red Groupers, plus a nice Yellowfin Tuna.

This trip was a ‘who’s who’ of local talent. Captain Fico of the Explorer came along, also a guest of Mr. Dan Johnson.

The fishing karma was so good that they scored a double Grouper catch even though the snap swivel was left unbuckled.

Near-shore Sailfish release were a welcome diversion.

Also Captain Fico scored an outstanding Yellowfin Tuna.

Here is Father and Son with an excellent Dorado:

“With the best Captain, my father.” Antonio posted.
