Amazing news from the Wanderer! The big blue beauty scored a billfish Grand Slam on August 16 with releases of Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, and Pacific Sailfish!

It was an honor to welcome our good friends Charly and Silvia back to the Wanderer; historically they have cleaned up on BIG Yellowfin Tunas in November, but this time they came to Nosara at just the right time to snare big billfish.

Silvia’s Sailfish got the party started at 11am with the release stamped at 11:15am.

Two lines screamed off for Craig and Charly at 12:37 as one Blue Marlin and one Black Marlin assaulted the Wanderer‘s spread.

Excellent fish handling by First Mate Alex in seeing to the safe release of both fish during a very hectic double hook-up.

The afternoon continued to produce strikes, but it wasn’t until 4:15pm that the hook once again struck paydirt. Charly belted up to battle this Striped Marlin:

Another legendary day for Charly Bernhardt and Silvia Munoz on the Wanderer!

Regular readers of this report remember that Charly and Silvia were on the big blue beauty exactly one year ago for the most productive day of Yellowfin tuna fishing in recent memory; Jog your memory by Watching the video or reading the post.

So here we are 364 days later, and what do you think happened?

 

 

 

 

 

Whoa! Those are some big f*$%king tunas…it’s amazing that they could hold these things up for the pictures let alone pull them out of the water. Great work by Craig, Paula, Charly and Silvia on some amazing angling!

 

 

 

 

This is why Alex lifts weights…great work all around by anglers, boat, Captain William, and the crew.

On November 21 Craig Sutton was joined on the Wanderer by Matty, Pat, Paula, Craig Jr., Sylvia and Charley Barnhart and we did a full day of work on the offshore Yellowfin Tuna.

The big Yellas were chowing down on Williamson Jet Poppers and slow-trolled cedar plugs. Even though these catches were great, we still left a few big fellas in the water.

Overall, a great day fishing with some great folks.
