Legendary Carolina angler Dan Johnson was fishing hard during and after the Ship of Fools tournament, and on the 9th he scored two nice Sailfish on the Explorer.

The Explorer also had Blue marlins in the spread but wouldn’t bite, and later nabbed two Groupers and other bottom fish.

“Great day with the fishing team always. Thank you. Dan Johnson”

Tony Loff and his son enlisted the Explorer for a great day of offshore blue water action on March 30.

We got this nice email from Tony after the trip:

“Here are a few pics of the fish we caught with Fico and Johny. Those guys were awesome. They probably told you but we caught 2 sails, 2 mahi, and had 1 blue marlin and 2 sails chase the teasers to the boat.”

“Unfortunately they did not hit the throw back bait. We also lost 2 mahi. On a final note, the lunch was excellent. Thanks for the good time.”

The mega panga and anglers Miles Clarkson and Aaron Revere had a mammoth day of Sailfish releases on March 14, with big numbers of big releases.

Miles sent us a very nice message:

“Craig, We had a great day fishing with Alex & Wilson!”

“They were very professional and put us on a bunch of Sails. Love the boat, too.”

“We has a great weak in Nosara and will make sure to recommend you guys to anyone we know heading down there!”

Rick Noonan returned on the 10th and continued to score Sailfish releases.

Here’s the email Rick sent us after his trip:


“Wanted to say Thank You for putting me together with Fico. Not very chatty but he put me 10 sailfish (8 landed) 1 Blue Marlin (landed) and a baby Wahoo (dinner).”

“My first billfish experience and I was blown away. A Danish buddy joined me on Saturday, zero saltwater fishing experience, as it turned out he got to fight the Marlin (my bucket list fish). Fish of a lifetime for him. That said I will be back to find that Marlin again.”

“Thanks again for a great two days of fishing.”

Captain Alex welcomed Gage Bonestroo and his son for a fun day of catching on January 7. Big Dorado kept these boys busy.

Always fun to see a young angler enjoying the craft of sportfishing. Here’s what Gage had to say:

Took my 6 year old son on his first offshore fishing trip with Alex on the Harvester. It was one hell of a day! Captain and first mate worked hard to put us on fish… and they did! Great lunch and friendly crew. Thanks Craig for a seemless experience. Top notch.

Laura Blair and her family scored five super Sailfish releases with Captain Carlos on the 27th.

“We had an awesome time…Fishing was the highlight – Captain Carlos and Kevin were an excellent team and provided top tier service as we landed a tuna and 5 sailfish.  We had some great tuna sashimi and seared tuna steaks provided by the fish my daughter caught within the first 10 minutes of putting the lines out!”

Thanks again,
Laura Blair
