The Explorer stayed hot on January 11 with a few excellent Dorados.

They also moved inshore and deployed our tried-and-true Rooster Fish tactic. First step was to grab some 4-6lbs. Bonitas in with the Planer/Spoon rig:

Then we bridle the Bonita and send to down to the reef.

The tactic yielded this excellent Rooster Fish catch which was released after the photo.

The Alson crew finished up their week of fishing in Costa Rica with a very productive inshore romp. This BIG Congrio is the best tasting fish on the reef and will make their end-of-trip dinner a real treat.

The also added a final Rooster Fish release to their impressive haul of catch-and-release trophies.

Great work by the Discoverer!

European angler Stephan Badstieber scored the fish of a lifetime with the Explorer on August 4. Check out this MONSTER Rooster Fish release:

“Thanks a lot for the great fishing day with Antonio and Raffa on the Explorer,” wrote Stephan in an email. “We are excited for what will happens the next few days. Today I caught the fish I was dreaming of for the last three years!”

In addition to the Rooster fish release, they added a nice Amberjack for the dinner table. Yummy!
