Jenny and Clifford Grohmann brought a really fun group of anglers down from Texas for a week-long fishing campaign, and got things going right away with lots of nice Dorados on deck.
These meaty Mahi will keep the group fed, but the highlight of the trip was this monster Sailfish release late in the day.
Clayton Laskowski and his buddy put on a show over three days fishing on the Wanderer, filling the scorecard with a wide variety of catches.
The first day featured a raft full of Yellowfin Tunas backed up by a nice Dorado.
Later in the trip the Wanderer also found this excellent Sailfish, safe released as always.
On the second day Team Laskowski found more Dorados, and this time they had some serious size to them.
They even scored a couple of small Wahoos, an unusual score for this time of year.
The third and final day on the Wanderer featured multiple Sailfish releases and more Mahi Mahi.
After a run like this it’s no surprise that the boys were ready to pitch in on the filet knife. Great work by Captain William and these fun-loving anglers.
Florida fishing legend Hubble Keller added to his reputation with another swarm of Sailfish releases on the Harvester.
Later in the day they found a big floating tree and spent the afternoon plucking Dorados out from underneath.
Jason Frelich returned for more blue water action on the 8th. Big Dorados were the name of the game, highlighted by these monsters:
The Harvester also nabbed a sweet mid-day Sailfish release.
Returning angler Joe Goins lit it up with Captain William on November 8 with the scorecard showing a nice Sailfish release backed-up with a big Dorado.
The Discoverer is back in business and got started on the right foot Scott and Lisa McAnally reporting a nice Sailfish release backed up with four big Dorados.
Our great friend Hubble Keller closed down the season a few months ago on the Harvester with a strong Marlin release, and wouldn’t you know that he got things started this year with another one?
Hubble and the boys were just getting started as they backed up the Striped Marlin with some nice Sailfish releases.
For the dinner table they hooked up three big Dorados and put them on ice.
Great start for Hubble Keller and the mega panga!
After two great days of filling the fishboxes with filets, the Harvester and Shane Miers group got their hands on some sweet Sailfish releases.
They also added a few more Dorados for good measure.
Awesome end to a great week of fishing for Team Miers!
James Wills came to Nosara primarily to surf, but he brought some friends along for an afternoon half day with Captain Alex on on October 19th.
This big Dorado got the afternoon off to a hot start, and was backed up by a similarly monstrous Mahi-Mahi:
A third fired-up Dorado put Team Wills to the test but was no match for the Mega Panga:
After all these filets ended up on ice in the fishbox, a little finch perched on one of the anglers’ head:
This must have been a good omen, because a late day Sailfish strike put the exclamation point on this great fishing day.
Awesome work by James Willis and his posse!
The Harvester welcomed Ronnie Koehn and the boys back for more Sailfish action on the 12th.
The billfish were fired up, but the Mega Panga was up to the task.
Nice work by Mate Kevin on the safe releases on these beauties.
