The Discoverer welcomed anglers Douglas Gawthrop and Tom Hacker for an action-packed morning half day on January 12.

This big Black Marlin is truly the fish of a lifetime, and was a sign of good fishing to come. A nice Sailfish release followed:

The trophy fishes were backed up by a few nice Dorados for the dinner table.

Amazing action for just a half day!

One of our favorite anglers Leah Merryfield helped the Wanderer ring in the New Year with a great day of action on January 1.

Captain William found this big Dorado lurking offshore, and Miss Merryfield was they to land this monster.

Mate Johnny had his work cut out for him to filet this big green beast.

With dinner on ice, Mike battled a big Sailfish all the way in for the release.

Filets for the table and another trophy release for the scrapbook…that’s a perfect day of fishing to kick off 2018.

Steve Mears pulled off one of the great feats in offshore fishing on December 30 with the Explorer…the Billfish Grand Slam!

Captain Fico and Mate Elias deserve tons of credit in the hunting of these monsters, and of course the safe live releases.

Great work by FishingNosara Hall of Famer Steve Mears!

Winston Hutchins joined Captain William for a five hour foray to the blue water, and despite the short trip they scored a wide variety of great catches.

A trio of nice Sailfish releases throughout the day kept Mate Wilson busy, and some fat Dorados in the afternoon means Team Hutchins with be well-fed during their vacation.

Awesome work by Captain William and the mighty Wanderer.

On December 29, Captain Fico delivered the goods for angler Michael Baoley with lots of billfish action backed up by some excellent meat fish.

This small Marlin is likely a juvenile Striped Marlin, but may also be an elusive Hatchet Marlin.

After the Marlin release they nabbed several super Sailfish.

In addition several nice Dorados found their way to the filet bag. What an excellent day of action on the unstoppable Explorer.
