Captain William and the Wanderer continue to reign as the King of Garza Bay, and in early March welcomed the return of big Dorados to the area.
A nice batch of Yellowfin Tunas has provided some variety to the fishbox.
Of course what offshore action would be complete without a few nice Sailfish releases?
Great work by Captain William and the flagship Wanderer!
The Explorer performed brilliantly on March 6 with angler Josh Elder’s group reporting strong offshore action. They released a nice Sailfish early in the trip.
They filled the fishbox with tasty Dorado filets later in the day. Great all-around action and big smiles for all.
Harry Adams pulled a beautiful haul with solid inshore action on the morning of the 28th.
After this a huge Broomtail Grouper, the Explorer backed it up with a nice Rooster fish release.
Later in the week the Explorer welcomed Bill Laurie. They headed offshore and pulled off a nice Sailfish release.
FishingNosara Hall of Famer Dan Johnson returned to the Wanderer on the 28th for another round of blue-water billfish battlin’. They nabbed this beautiful Sailfish release:
Great fish handling by Mate Johnson to see this lovely creature swim away safely.
The billfish keep biting as client Ronald Carns reports an excellent Sailfish release from his February 24th half day trip.
Captain Fico closed out the month strong with a whirlwind of trips. The barroom brawler scored lots of nice Sailfish releases:
They also piled the fishbox high with great filets of Dorado and Snapper.
As always the most important thing is big smiles and fun times on the Explorer:
Brendan Chenowith brought his sons along for a great day of action the 20th.
They bested some blue water billfish and also deployed the flyrod for tasty treats.
Here’s what Mr. Chenowith had to say in an email:
We had two great days with Alex on the Harvester. Alex put in a lot of effort to get us fish on the fly rods. He also did a fabulous job making our kids feel like they were the center of his attention.
His willingness to share his knowledge of the fishery taught us a lot about blue water and inshore fishing. We all came away from our experience wishing we far more time to spend in the Nosara area.
All my kids want to come back and fish again. I can’t ask for more than that. We intend to make it back soon.
The Harvester keeps on rocking with a quartet of Sailfish releases on the 9th with Daniel Rivara’s group.
The hits came early and often, keeping the rods bent all day long.
After the flurry of billfish action, these anglers scored a double Dorado hook-up and brought both beauties to the boat.
Awesome job by these New Jersey anglers!
Joined by Carl Lindberg’s group, Captain Fico struck again on February 6 with a sweet Sailfish release.
Then the next day they followed up with three more Sailfish releases.
The battleship Discoverer went on a two-way mission on February 3. Early in the trip they headed offshore to do battle with a pair of lovely Sailfish.
After the safe releases, Captain Carlos headed inshore for a super Rooster Fish release.
