Katrisha Seata blew into town for one night, stayed at Nosara Paradise Rentals and went straight to Garza for a full day of fishing on the battleship Discoverer.

The elected to stay near shore and check the bottom for reef-dwellers, and were rewarded with this mammoth Rainbow Snapper:

They also scored on Yellowfin Tuna and small Dorados.

Nice haul from the fish market by Captain David and the Discoverer.

The Wanderer took her reign of supremacy to the inshore reef and reports a wide variety of tasty fare in the fish box for client Ivan and his group. The Penn Spinfisher 7500 was the weapon of choice this trip and First Mate Alex deployed a cloud of fresh Bonita chunks that the bottom fish could not resist.

A small Snapper and an Amberjack were the first casualties and unlike it’s Atlantic brethren these AJs are very good to eat. Not to be out done the ladies got into the fight and conquered an even bigger Snapper. Way to go!

The big score of the trip as far as weight goes is this lovely Broomtail Grouper estimated at 20lbs. This is some of the best-tasting fish in the world and is certainly a treat for these anglers.

Lastly this Rock Snapper is one of the best examples we have seen of such a specimen and believe me it tastes just as good as it looks.

Janet Storey had a week of eye-popping catches offshore, and for her group’s final trip they stayed inshore to to find some tasty bottom fish. The action was heavy early as a school of Jack Crevelles couldn’t resist our deep jigs

Notice the right side of the picture that this is a double hookup…when these fish get hungry they FEED!

They had a ton of rod-bending fun and the highlight for the fishbox was this perfectly-sized Rock Snapper. This tasty beast put our new Penn Spinfishers to the test and should surely serve as a perfect end-of-vacation dinner for these Moorehaven, FL anglers.

Fresh sushi today for client Matt Lukof and his group on the Adventurer. Captain Carlos has the little 23-foot straight razor sharpened to a finely honed edge and on this trip sliced and diced his way to a full fishbox.

Amanda got thing rolling with this excellent Jack Crevelle, and if you notice in the background Matt a fish on the line as well. By trip’s end they had caught  two Yellowfin Tunas, a Barbero Snapper and 7 Bonitos. That is fantastic action for just a 5 hour trip.

Great work Captain Carlos and the devastatingly diminutive Adventurer.

Newly-inducted Hall of Famer Dennis Paul was back in Nosara on May 4, and once again he had the fishies running scared. He earned his enshrinement by releasing a gigantic Blue Marlin back in February on the Wanderer and this time is on the Explorer mercilessly beating down the inshore species.

Captain David took the Explorer out to his secret spot and they packed the fishbox with haste and reckless abandon. Their scorecard shows two Jacks, a Rock Snapper, and seven nice Yellowfin Tunas.
