Beau Braid and his Florida posse notched the scorecard today with Captain William on the Wanderer delivering great blue water action.
This Dorado was a good sign early in the trip, but in the afternoon the Sailfish swarm attacked.
Great work by First Mate Alex on the safe releases.
Bob and Helen Goins turned in a remarkable performance on the mighty Wanderer with two Marlin releases along with a bunch of Sails.
Helen broke the ice early with a wonderful Striped Marlin release…like most of our CCA NC anglers these folks know what to do with a rod in their hands.
The Marlin have been soft-biting so far this season, so the ever-tinkering First Mate Alex has begun to experiment with brightly colored skirts for the ballyhoo.
These did the trick as the Goins group started racking up Sailfish releases in the middle part of the day.
The finale was also the highlight as Bob reeled in this awesome Blue Marlin.
Estimated over 300lbs., this is one of the bigger Blue Marlin you’ll see around here.
Great work by the Master Captain William and the Super Mate Alex on this amazing day of bill collecting.
Captain David delivered an identical catch report the next day for client Cathy Riddle, as another Sailfish and another Dorado found the hooks on February 17.
Clearly Captain David has his approach dialed-in and the Explorer is in mid-season form.
Beau Braid did very well on the blue water today on the big blue beauty the Wanderer. Sailfish abound in these waters, and these CCA Florida anglers were ready to meet them in battle.
After a few early releases, Beau and boys we attacked by this acrobatic Sailfish. He was bucking so hard that he jumped up into the outrigger lines!
They also scored this 30lbs. Dorado late in the trip, a perfect way to end a day of big billfish releases!
Our pal Francois Bernier took another crack at the blue water beasties and added this nice Sailfish release to his ledger:
He followed up with a 30lbs. Dorado to keep his icebox full of filets.
The amazing red moon has shone over Garza Bay this week, and the team has performed excellently under Neptune’s watchful eye.
Bob Goins kept the recent hot streak alive with a pair of sweet Sailfish releases on-board the flagship Wanderer.
Harris Savin finished his fishing adventurer with Captain David on the Explorer, only a special guest was on hand in the mate position: Captain Carlos of the Adventurer.
Carlos started Harris out on this great week of fishing, so it is only fitting that he see Mr. Savin finish strong.
Another day, another five Sailfish!
With this beefy White Tuna thrown in for dinner, I’d say this is the perfect end to a perfect week for Harris Savin!
The blood moon hung in the sky as the FishingNosara team rallied for a great day of offshore action.
Chris Petruccelli and his group took the Wanderer out to Sailfish City where Captain William put them out in front of some fired-up billfish.
In total they scored four Sailfish releases, one per angler!
Excellent work by the famous flagship!
