Record Smashing day on the Adventurer today!

Client Michael Quigley and his lady started their trip with a MASSIVE Sailfish released just two miles from shore.

They followed up with a GIANT Snapper…we think it is a Cubera but we have never seen this shade of red before; perhaps is is a Mangrove Snapper but who cares? Look at the size of this beast:

They rounded out the trip with a gaggle of Yellowfin Tunas on ice.

This is the kind of day we expect from big offshore battle wagons, but the amazing Captain Carlos is coaxing this kind of action very close to shore in a 23-foot vessel; we can’t wait to see what the switchblade pries up next!

Hall of Famer Dennis Paul and Barbara Dayhoff have made life absolutely miserable for the billfish population this week, and on their second-to-last trip of their vacation they laid a beating on another quartet of Sailfish.

Barbara kicked off the action with this sweet release.

Then Dennis got back in the swing of things was a pair of Sailfish releases.

Barbara nabbed a MASSIVE Dorado mid-day to keep the refrigerator filled.

Then Barbara scored this final release as a victory lap.

Excellent work again by this dynamic fishing duo!

Emily Fuller and her friends had a field day on the Wanderer with three Sailfish released and a pair of big Dorados for the dinner table.

Emily routed the first Sailfish alongside the flagship for a smooth release early in the trip.

After the release, they were treated to many Dorado strikes with four green monsters put on ice.

The action stayed strong later in the trip with two more Sailfish releases notched on the scoreboard.

That is some intense action for only a 5 hour trip. Great work by the Master Captain William and the Super Mate Alex!

Big Fish and Big Smiles for Keith Siegal and his posse on board the Wanderer. This fun-loving group of Texans took got their afternoon half day started with this excellent Dorado.

Later in the trip they were rewarded with an acrobatic Sailfish assaulting the flagship’s baits. It was a wild fight, but as usual the Wanderer was victorious.

Great hunting by Captain William and excellent fish handling by the awesome First Mate Alex!

Some tough seas offshore today for Doc Hatton and his posse on the Wanderer, but these New Jersey anglers ain’t scared of a little swell…compared to the Montauk Canyons this is child’s play.

Doc picked up right where they left off on the 5th with a pair of Dorados in the fishbox early on.

Later in the day they found this juvenile Sailfish roaming around and snatched him up for a safe quick release.

These hardy fishermen have another trip on the books this week and we look for a fantastic finish for Doc Hatton’s crew.

Four-time Hall of Famer Dennis Paul and the lovely Barbara Dayhoff are back in Nosara for a week of fun fishing action.

Barbara led off the day with a wonderful Sailfish release.

Later in the trip a big bad Striped Marlin hit the spread and the fight was on!

This fish stayed deep in the water and challenged Dennis to a tug-of-war…this is unusual behavior from a small Stripey as they usually put on an acrobatic display above the water.

Dennis used the fighting chair, his own custom fishing belt, and a little help from First Mate Alex to land this beast.

Great work by the flagship and, dare-I-say the FIVE time Hall of Famer Dennis Paul.

With three big Mahi in the box, they found a fellow appreciator of fresh Dorado meat: this high-flyin Sailfish:

The trip went so well that they released this late-day Dorado estimated under 10lbs…come back when your grown!

Great work as always by First Mate Alex and Captain William on the boat that is fit for all forms of marine combat.
