Hendrik and Maria Engel returned to Nosara for another round of fishing action. This family has fished with us since Christmas of 2013 and always seem to find big fish.
They got things started with a late-day Sailfish release on Christmas Day with Captain William on the Wanderer.
Nice start to a great week of fishing in paradise!
The Wanderer scored a massive Cubera Snapper to start off an afternoon 5hr. trip on April 7.
Then the flagship took advantage of the legendary late-day bite with some scale-tipping monsters caught just before sunset:
This Rooster fish was released, but this Cubera Snappers had no such luck:
Sweet tattoo alert!
Great work by the never-surrender Wanderer!
The Wanderer always has another trick up her sleeve…a 2.5 hour sunset trip is not enough time to go scare up a billfish, right?
Wrong! She scored this awesome Sailfish release and was still back in Garza in time for dinner. Great work by the flagship!
Gilles Lemay brought his sons along for a family fishing adventurer on the famous Wanderer, and their late-day trip yielded some excellent table fare.
Looks like these guys have plenty of sushi and filets in their future…Great work by the flagship!
The Explorer knocked out a pair of Sailfish on 2.5 hour sunset cruise with client Matt Whitecomb. Check out these beauties:
Great performance from the Super Panga on a short trip is rare; its the rule!
Jon Athan and his friends had a lovely 2.5 hour sunset cruise on the Wanderer on March 11.
In addition to the lovely scenery, they also scored a nice-sized Yellowtail Snapper. Pound-for-pound this is some of the best tasting fish in our area…great work by these young anglers.
The Wanderer was the classroom for a great bunch of kids getting their first lesson in the blue water marine ecosystem.
Captain William took this family for an up-close look at the inbound Sea Turtle migration to Ostinal.
Later in the evening this little dude scored a nice White Tuna.
Nice way to end the day for the hard-working flagship the Wanderer.
The Wanderer took a lovely sunset cruise with client Russell Brownley and his group. Though the Pacific sunset was as perfectly picturesque as possible, this group couldn’t help but drop a few lines to the bottom and see what was eating.
They got all they could handle in the form of not one, but TWO meaty Cuberra Snappers! That’s how you fill a refrigerator on just a 2.5 hour trip.
In addition to great catches, the Wanderer is a perfect place to learn the craft of fishing. Check out First Mate Alex giving some tips on how to handle our conventional reel jigging rods…she already looks like an old pro!
Great trip from the top boat in the bay and her top-notch crew.
Client Michael and his lady joined the famous Wanderer crew for a 2.5 hour sunset cruise on April 1. The always-reliable planer / spoon rig reported a strike as this couple was enjoying the pleasant surroundings and a pair of Jack Crevelle ended up in the fishbox.
Sunset cruises are a great way to get a taste of Costa Rican sportfishing without committing to a whole day on the water, and when you are on the flagship you can rest easy that somthing fishy will end up on the hooks.
