Chuck Harris and his Mob had a big day on June 11, with a Double Sailfish releases leading off the day’s catches.
Nice fish handling by Mate Kevin to ensure the safety of both the fishes and the anglers.
The Sailfish strikes stayed strong all day, and Chuck’s Offshore Mafia had the skills to bring them in quickly.
The final release came from our old buddy Rick Blackburn, and was the seventh release of the day.
With all this billfish releasing going on, the Good Doctors almost forgot to get something to eat! Fortunately they snagged this big Dorado:
This is sure to feed these big eaters for the duration of their trip…excellent hunting by the famous Wanderer.
While Chuck and Rick were battling two Marlins over on the Wanderer, the rest of the Good Doctors put in big work on the battleship Discoverer. The highlight was this MASSIVE Black Marlin which took both Mate Keven and Mate Fico to subdue.
The followed-up with a nice Sailfish release and a couple of tasty Yellowfin Tunas.
Great work by Captain David on another legend-building performance.
Earth-Shattering moment on the Wanderer today as the Good Doctors pulled off a simultaneous Double Marlin Release! We have pulled off several Double Sailfish releases in the past and a few memorable Marlin/Sailfish doubles, but this marked the first true Double Marlin release of the season so far.
To describe the moment of the strike as ‘chaotic’ is an understatement; the skill of Captain William to keep these high-flying monsters from getting tangled only trumps First Mate Alex’ fish-handling skills.
Wrangling 1000+lbs. of angry billfish at once is no small feat, but we have always said that the Wanderer is known for defying expectations.
Amazing work by the flagship!
Two-time FishingNosara Hall of Famers Rick Blackburn and Chuck Harris have returned to Nosara for a frenzied week of fishing
They got off to a great start with the Wanderer on June 16 with a fantastic pair of Sailfish releases.
Though Rick and Chuck have bested many billfish with us, this is the first releases for these new members of their group. Let’s hope this is the first of many for these guys.
Two great catches by the Good Doctors backed up by two safe releases by the Wanderer‘s fearless crew!
