Brock Liebreich and his wife had a picture-perfect day of trophy fish releases on the Wanderer. They started out their full day trip with this wonderful Rooster Fish release less that 5 miles from shore:

Captain William then set offshore and found Sailfish City to be teeming with fired-up Sailfish.

They notched seven Sailfish releases throughout the trip. Check out this high-flyer:

The action stayed hot all afternoon long:

Great hunting by Captain William and excellent fish handling by First Mate Alex.

We got a great note from Becky once she got back to Florida:
“Cant wait to tell you all about the trip.  William and Alex will always be number one to us…..just way too much fun in a week!!  We finally captured the elusive rooster fish, the morning Andy was on his way to the airport….laughed about that!”

“Have some great underwater shots we took with the gopro too!  Total count for the week is 21 sails released (could have been more, but we targeted Marlin our last day with four teasers and one big lure…..no Marlin but no worries…….too much fun trying!)” 

“The second day we fished and released 10 sails (once again, if we wanted more it would have been no problem, but we wanted to enjoy one fish at a time because Alexa and Crystian had never done it).  We did reel up a double with Andy and Minton because we could!  Best family vacation ever!”

Doc Hatton and the boys stayed inshore today to hunt for the elusive Rooster Fish, and Captain William found the little cluckers and set the hooks to them.

The Penn Slammer drag creates an unfair advantage for the anglers against this kind of fish, and First Mate Alex had no trouble live releasing these Roosters.

Another day, another couple of bucket-list fish for the mighty Wanderer.

The flagship Wanderer tied her own record for Rooster Fish release with a whopping FIVE featherheads released in a single day. Vanessa Gallegos and her group were the beneficiaries of this landmark achievement and they report big fish and big smiles all around.

Captain William exploited a roiling boil of baitfish near to shore and First Mate Alex expertly selected the right hook size to isolate the big fish from the rest of the pack.

Great coordination between angler, mate and Captain meant that all of this beauties were released quickly and safely.

After the Gallegos family’s morning 5 hour trip, the Wanderer returned to shore to pick up Steven Cheung and his friends. They went right back to the feeding frenzy and scored another two Rooster fish releases.

Another day, another record for the mighty Wanderer.

The mighty Wanderer put on a show for two groups of clients on December 26. First up was this excellent pair of Rooster fish releases scored first thing in the morning by Leah Armstrong :

These safe releases were the highlight of the morning session, but the big blue beauty was barely getting started.


In the afternoon we welcomed a great returning client and his family.

Hendrick Engel started fishing with our team late last year, and this time he returned with wife Maria and his daughter who was celebrating her 16th birthday.

For the birthday girl, how’s a Double Sailfish release sound for a present?

Great fish handling by First Mate Alex was the icing on the cake!

Captain William is known for squeezing every drop of action out of a fishing day, as proven by the nice Dorado and two more Sailfish scored at the end of the Engel’s outing.

That’s why the Wanderer is the King of Garza Bay!

On the morning of the 23rd the Wanderer welcomed client Leah Armstrong and her family for a fruitful day of inshore action.

Captain William found this bubbling bait ball just a mile from shore and the flagship capitalized on this blessing.

Big Rooster fish were the order of the day. Each was live released so we can catch them again soon!

The action stayed strong with several nice Jack Crevelles providing actions for this young angler.

Then in the afternoon the flagship returned to Garza to scoop up Leah Merryfield and her posse for some high-flying Sailfish action.

Just like the shirt says, this Sailfish learned to Fear the Mustache!

The late-day Sailfish bite lead to two awesome fights and two safe releases.

A getaway Dorado scored was the perfect end to a double day of action for Captain William and the mighty Wanderer.
