Geoff Hancock had a blow-out day on the Wanderer with Captain William and First Mate Alex. Sailfish City was packed and Geoff’s crew picked them off left and right.

This above the water action illustrates just how fired up the bite has been recently…these monsters are running on full tanks!

The highlight of the day was a Triple Hook-up which led to a fantastic Double Sailfish release, with one Sail spitting the hook during the battle.

The icing on the cake was this tasty Dorado, estimated well over 40lbs.

Top shelf trophy releases and filets on ice…just another perfect day for the mighty flagship.

Ken Russell and Larry Komenda couldn’t stand the fact that they would have to go two days until their next trip, so they snapped up Captain David’s only open day and returned to the blue water for more action. 

The Sailfish bite was hot as fire and the lines were popping off frequently throughout the trip. 

Check out the color on this Sail:

Awesome work by Mate Kevin to safely handle these still-green monsters.

They ended up with six Sails released for the day…great performance from the legendary Super panga.

April Fools’ Day was no joke for client Curtis and Liz Coley! These guys put the chokehold on a swarm of Sailfish and didn’t let up until the big billfish tapped out.

Captain David tracked a feeding school of fish and that led to four big Sails on the trip, with Mate Kevin seeing to the safe release of all billfish.

These Jacksonville anglers showed off the dominance that has made Northeast Florida legendary in these waters.

“Dear Craig and Matty,”

“Curtis and I had a “once in a lifetime” trip to your place in Nosara! The fishing trips were fabulous with Capt. David & Kevin on the barroom brawler Explorer (10 sails total for Chuck) and Capt. Carlos on the “pocket knife” Adventurer.  I caught 3 sails on the Explorer and five bonitas and one tuna on the Adventurer. What a special treat to see the beautiful reefs jut out of the Blue Pacific (which I had never seen before).”

“We also took a horseback ride with Rafael and had lunch with Jesus, his Mama.  She prepared a delicious native lunch, and it was a pleasure meeting them both.”

“Also, Cumi, Marino, Javier and Ahias took great care of us!  I would be remiss without saying how much we adored Freddie and Jenny, too.  Freddie hauled us to and from the boats to Garza, Jenny did our laundry and cleaned up Casa Jardin during the week, and Jenny had fried chicken as a treat on one of our fishing trips.  Everyone was very amenable to answering any questions we had.  We put several miles on the Safari Cart, and our transfers to and from the San Jose airport were impeccable.  One big happy family.”

“It was an amazing adventure which we will always cherish.  You run a top-notch operation, and we will recommend Paradise Rentals & Fishing Nosara to anyone who is headed to Costa Rica.  Best wishes in your future endeavors and your new boat, the Discoverer.  Thanks again for everything!!”

Ken Russell, Brenda Russell, Larry Komenda and Misti Nolan kicked off a 5 day fishing adventurer with our team on March 30, and these New York anglers got acclimated to the Pacific blue water very quickly.

Right off the bat they had a fine Sailfish release backed up by a tasty 30lbs. Dorado.

Another great Sailfish release followed, and that was only the tip of the iceberg.

Even the less experienced angler can best a Sailfish on the Wanderer, thanks to Captain William’s calm demeanor on the controls and First Mate Alex’ touch in the cockpit.

They got a taste of a Double Sailfish hookup later in the day, however one of the high-flyers managed to spit the hook and escape capture:

Great work by this posse who still has a full week of fishing ahead of them.
