Justin Haliday and Misty Dingel marked Rooster Fish release off of their ‘to-do’ list on August 19, thanks to the efforts of Captain David on the Adventurer.
Check out what Heidi posted to Facebook:
Got my Rooster Fish today!!! Soo damn excited!! We had a hell of an amazing time fishing the past two days with Capt David on the Adventurer from FishingNosara going out of Playa Garza, Cr. We stayed at Nosara Paradise Rentals in the Casa Bianca, very clean spacious and comfy. Check pics, vids and rates on their pages
This has by far been the best time we have had in the country so far and not just bc of the fishing. The area, the views, the biodiversity, the people omg EVERYONE has literally been frikkin amazing that we run into, this IS Costa Rica and the Tico way of life here, the Pura Vida!!! We both feel safe and at home here and is the top of the list for coming back to. There’s just too much to capture that pictures would NOT do it justice or even begin to capture the Pura Vida here Here’s a few tidbits from the fishing. We have sooo much footage and pics to upload and fish through no pun intended.
Billy Meeks and Jerome McKown were back for more on the 9th. Let’s hear Jerome’s account:
Another great day of fishing in Nosara, Costa Rica.
My good fishing partner and friend Billy Meeks had an amazing day on the water with Fishing Nosara on the Harvester with Capt. Alex.
We started the day with Billy catching and landing a 7’ sailfish. We actually saw him strike and eat the surface bait. Pretty cool for sure.
Then I was able to catch another rooster fish.
Good fight beautiful colors on this fish.
Later this afternoon Billy was able to catch and land another Rooster Fish. His fish was definitely bigger than mine; 48lbs
Within 10 minutes from Billy’s release I popped another rooster fish. It was a monster. The granddaddy of the rooster fish. We able to see him briefly before he broke the hook. Capt. Alex estimated to be nearly 70 lbs.😡
All I could think of was the movie…Grumpy Old Men and how they were always trying catch.. “Catfish Hunter”…
So another day is in the books. We were able to photo and release these magnificent fighters for another day.
We laughed hard, fished hard, and now we have wonderful memories of today’s events which will last forever in our mind and heart…
We not fishing tomorrow, but come Wednesday let me just say.. Catfish hunter rooster we are coming for you.. Game on. Lol. Wish us luck on our final day fishing this paradise called Nosara, Costa Rica..🎣🦵🏾🤙
Robbie Parks dropped this report on July 23: “Bite was much slower today. But thanks to Capt. Alex late ninth inning rally, we ended up with 5 more sails, three of them in the last hour and two of those were on a double hookup.”
“So far, the Parks clan has 15 sailfish. My grandsons are now believers.”
Musa Rukab and Victor Chaffiot returned for a second day with the Wanderer on June 12.
Musa reached out to us after the trip:
“Good morning, I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know that that was the most incredible two days of fishing that I’ve ever had in all of my years of fishing and made a lifelong memory for my son for his senior trip!”
“Captain William in first made Elias were awesome to fish with I was very impressed with the overall fishing scene. We managed to catch and release six sales the first day, and the second day we caught so many Dorados that I stopped counting and released most and only kept three to eat.”
“We managed to hook six yellow fin land for and I think we could’ve caught 100 that day there were so many fish, we also managed to hook one blue marlin and lost it and had another one up in the teasers but couldn’t get them to bite. The amount of opportunities to catch a land fish on our second date blew all expectations I’ve ever had on any fishing trip anywhere that I could think of going to, the fishing to me was as good or better than any resort that I’ve ever looked at and Panama or any other place!”
“I will share with all of my friends that always go to Panama to go catch fish and let them know what’s available fishing with you in Nosara.”
Mike Loughrey and the Harvester scored big on March 18. The highlight was this floor-sweeping monster Dorado.
They augmented this catch with some smaller Yellowfin Tunas and a nice Sailfish release.
“Great time in Nosara last week,” Mike wrote via email. “Casa Neptune is a great spot for a couple folks. Thanks for everything. Fishing with Alex and Wilson was epic! Freddy, Javier, Mary, Alex & Yoseph were great to be with.”
Jason Frelich’s group started their week with a BIG Dorado, then scored a swarm of Sailfish releases, and on their final trip scored the biggest Yellowfin Tuna of the season so far.
We can’t undestate how unusual it is to find big Yellowfins this time of year. What a blessing!
Earlier in the trip they scored this wonderful Rooster Fish release inshore.
Amazing job my Mate Wilson, Captain Alex, and the unbeatable Harvester.
I was part of the Frelich group that hauled in the 200 lb+ Yellowfin Tuna, which I must say I’m still enjoying. This was our 2nd vacation with Fishing Nosara and you and your team did not disappoint. I just wanted to relay a few things about our stay that really stood out.
This was our first time staying on the Fishing Nosara property, which is beautifully maintained tropical paradise “Paradise Rentals” is a good name, having the cart at our disposal made getting around a breeze. The pool and breakfast area really beautiful, tropical and needed after a long day of reeling in fish.
From the shuttles to and from the airport, to fishing, to anything we wanted was terrific and super punctual with no worries.
We went horse back riding one day, and the tour was fabulous. We had a lunch with the locals and it was delicious.
The fishing. We fished with Alex and Wilson, on the Fishing Nosara Super Panga all 3 days. I must say that Alex has super fish finding radar like a superhero. He is fishing excellence and partnering with Wilson make them a great 1-2 punch. On our 3 days fishing we caught 10 of 11 Sailfish, 28 lb Dorado, a 48 lb Rooster Fish (my prize catch) and fought the mighty 200 lb + Yellowfin for nearly 4 hrs. it made our several other tuna we caught in the 25lb range look like bait. Kudo’s go’s to our mighty fisherwoman “T” who fought the beast for over 2 hrs making the last 2 hrs an easy catch for Robbie her first mate.
Our over all experience with your accommodations, personnel and fishing was 5 star. Thank you again and hope to return soon.
