Bob Zuniga’s group nabbed the fish of a lifetime on July 11 with this strong Striped Marlin release on July 11.

Later on in the trip they added a nice White Tuna…a rare find this far offshore.

Here’s what Bob had to say in an email: “I just wanted to take the time to let you and your staff know that my group and I had the time of a lifetime! From the fishing, to the breakfast and all of the accommodations, we enjoyed every second we spent at your paradise! Your staff took customer service to the next level and the fishing is unlike I have ever encountered in the world. I just wanted to again send you my thanks and on behalf of my group… PURA VIDA!!! Robert Zuniga”

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!

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.
