Craig Sutton was joined by clients Ray Carter and the lovely Georgia peach Paula Price for a great trip on the Wanderer on May 30th.
The weather was just about as perfect as could be imagined and the party had a fantastic array of catches. In total they caught a mean little 20lbs. Wahoo (above), a 30lbs. Amberjack, a 35lbs. Cuberra snapper and two 12lbs. Yellowfin tuna.
The highlight of the trip was a pair of 100+lbs. Sailfish releases. Paula showed her skills on the reel as both fights were under ten minutes and both fish were released.
It was an honor to welcome two Nosara VIP’s for a great day of fishing on March 30th. Richmond Phipps (legendary angler and patriarch of the Nosara community) and Leo (owner of Rancho Tico, one of the finest restaurants in the area) had a fantastic fun time and each caught their first Pacific Sailfish.
On March 22nd, Jim Bridges and his party really captured the flag this month with a ridiculous FIVE Sailfish released in a single day, including the infamous Double Bill Shot. Craig Sutton and Charly Bernhardt were also aboard the Wanderer for the feat.
Great work Captain William and mates Alex and David for coming up with the idea for the picture, and then having the guts to hold onto these powerful Sailfish.
Recently the Wanderer was graced by Dennis Rosa and his son Sam for two full days of fishing on the 12th and 14th of February. On the first day they caught two 25lbs. Dorados and a 120lbs. Sailfish. Then they raised ten Sailfish on the second day and ended up successfully capturing and releasing four of them.
Sam showed excellent skills on the reel and was centrally involved in all the Sailfish strikes. He had a great trip with his dad to our little slice of paradise, where they explored the surrounding areas on foot, on the water, and even from the treetops on one of our nearby jungle zip-lines.

Sam’s Sailfish Scorecard: 85lbs. – 90lbs. – 110lbs. – 120lbs. Great work buddy!
On January 25th, 26th, and 27th the Wanderer was honored to welcome Captain Kevin Faver, his wife Carrie, and the crew of The Outdoors Show for a few days of fishing and filming. Kevin and Carrie repeated last year’s success by catching four Dorados and releasing seven Sailfish.
Also Kevin released one of the nicest Rooster Fish of the year so far. These episodes should air soon, so keep an eye on this report for airtimes and channels.
Our great friends Mike Young and Jeff joined Javier Hernandez (General Manager, Nosara Paradise Rentals) for a sunset cruise. They caught lots of fish in a short amount of time: four 12lbs. Black tuna, a 10lbs. Yellowfin Tuna, a 12lbs. Rainbow runner, and this beautiful 35lbs. Rooster fish, which was released of course.
Earlier in the week Manuel nabbed this excellent Sailfish…c’mon Manuel, save some for the clients!
