Our new friend Jon Athan is a hardcore surfer who has recently discovered Super Panga fishing, and in the last month he has been wearing out the reefs on board the Adventurer.
This Queen Snapper is a very rare catch for our area and the crew tells me that these are some of the best tasting fish in the ocean!
Mate Fico has kept Jon right on top of the bite and his catches got better and better over his three trips this month.
Great work by the new helmsman of the Adventurer and our new friend Jon Athan.
The hits keep on coming for the plucky Adventurer. Mate Fico took this couple out for a half day and they scored this brilliantly colored Amberjack. Check it out:
Who says you need a big boat to get big fish?
That is a very rare catch for our area and the crew tells me that these are some of the best tasting fish in the ocean. Truly this is a testament to the fish-finding power of the the Adventurer.
With the big Captain’s shuffle going on around the team, don’t forget that the 23-foot pocket knife Adventurer will now be the proving platform for our up-and-coming Mates to proves their prowess.
Check out these nice Snappers pulled off the bottom with Mate Fico at the tiller of the Adventurer:
Chad Langley and the boys finished off their week of furious fishing with more Sailfish release and some excellent eating fish on the Wanderer.
Chad tried to give the Sailfish an early Valentine’s Day present: a little kiss upon release!
They rounded out the day with Dorados and a tasty little Yellowtail Snapper.
Record Smashing day on the Adventurer today!
Client Michael Quigley and his lady started their trip with a MASSIVE Sailfish released just two miles from shore.
They followed up with a GIANT Snapper…we think it is a Cubera but we have never seen this shade of red before; perhaps is is a Mangrove Snapper but who cares? Look at the size of this beast:
They rounded out the trip with a gaggle of Yellowfin Tunas on ice.
This is the kind of day we expect from big offshore battle wagons, but the amazing Captain Carlos is coaxing this kind of action very close to shore in a 23-foot vessel; we can’t wait to see what the switchblade pries up next!
Justin Morris and his girl hit on four different species of tasty fish with Captain Carlos on the Adventurer.
This beefy Dorado was the first catch of the day, but by no means was the biggest…get a load of this 30lbs. Cubera Snapper:
They rounded out the day with a perfect-for-sushi Yellowfin Tuna and the elusive Yellowtail Snapper. Both of these fish add a fantastic variety to the dinner table.
Great work by Captain Carlos and the excellent 23-foot Adventurer.
Daniel Glover and his family ended their week of fishing on a high note with a pair of Cubera Snappers on ice and big smiles on the faces of the whole family.
The first fish fought fiercely but was no match for young Mr. Glover. This 25lbs. is a real treat to eat and a boatload of fun to fight.
The second Snapper makes the first one look like a minnow! This 40+lbs. Red Buick is the kind of Snapper that keeps anglers up at night worldwide.
Look at the girth on this leviathan!
Jeff Joyner and his posse hit the water on board the Wanderer and had great success sticking to the inshore reefs. This big mama Cubera Snapper was the highlight of the trip:
They also hauled in a second nice-sized Snapper and one of the biggest Ponpanos we have ever seen around here.
Excellent fishing by Jeff Joyner group and the mighty Wanderer.
