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

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

“Craig,”

“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

Team Humprey finished up their week in Nosara with a breathtaking NINE Sailfish release day on the Harvester on August 15.

The mega panga was a busy place; how could it not be with more than one Sailfish release per hour?

Clearly the action hit a peak for this group of South Florida anglers.

Of course all nine fish were released safely with no problems.

In addition to the Sailfish releases, the crew also scored a icebox full of nice Dorados.

“I had an amazing experience with this company when I was in Costa Rica. They surpassed my expectations and helped make the already incredible experience a time I will never forget. My fondest memories will be the time spent on the Harvester with Captain Alex and first mate Wilson.”

“My group who joined me on this journey all work for a fishing charter company (Lady Pamela 2 Fishing Charters) in South Florida. We are avid fishermen who work on the water catching fish, everyday. It’s not only a passion, but a career. That being said, we all felt Captain Alex was by far one of the best we have ever seen. He has eyes like a hawk. He is quicker than a rattle snake. He is patient, eager and willing to teach the knowledge he has learned fishing the Pacific Ocean for almost his whole life to us fellow fishermen of Florida.”

“We fished three days out of our week stay. We decided to upgrade to a full eight hours for our last trip. That day we caught and released nine gorgeous sail fish. We caught everything from 75lb tuna to 15lb dorados out of our three trips, but the last day was by far an incredible experience. Our mate, Wilson, was extremely polite, helpful, and quick at getting the spread back out. I really can’t say enough about these gentlemen and how wonderful they are.”

“Our host, Craig, was very friendly an met us for our complementary breakfast just about every morning. (Breakfast was great by the way) he joined in on conversations with everyone staying at the little jungle town he created in Nosara. He was a great host an has built a phenomenal company.”

“We also did a horse back ride with Eduardo in the breath taking atmosphere that was surrounded by mountains, monkeys, waterfalls, flowers, incredible trees… (I could keep going) an we enjoyed every second of it! He matched all our personalities with each horse! They were well trained and taken care of. Eduardo was so sweet!! He told us all kinds of interesting facts about the jungle and the surrounding river. We rode up to his mothers house, where we were greeted with star fruit water, cold mountain water, and mouth watering sliced fruit. He showed us his gorgeous property and kept the interesting info about his culture an land going the whole time.”

“We then rode off again to several different waterfalls where we got to get wet with the horses and take awesome pictures. It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. We then traveled back to his mamas house, where we had hands down the best meal we ate our entire trip. Fresh green salad with the best avacado you’ll ever eat. Chicken that was clearly prepared that morning, home made potato chips, rice and beans… uh I want more just thinking about it. Then the coffee!!! Oh the coffee! Beans from their tree, freshly ground, that was just heavenly. They were warm hearted, kind, humble people whom I will never forget.”

“If you are looking to stay at a beautiful location, do some incredible big game fishing, and explore the wonders of the jungle on horseback.. you will have a life changing experience if you book a vacation trip with Fishing Nosara. You won’t want to leave!!!”

Kathleen Clarke came to us as a novice angler, but after her trip on the Discoverer she has cut her teeth as a big-time blue water angler.

These Sailfish put on a great show and the releases were quick and easy.

She wrote us a very nice email:

“Just wanted to let you know that we had an incredibly amazing time on our fishing trip.  I don’t think that it could have been any better.  Captain Carlos and Kevin were stellar – I would highly recommend that crew to anyone. ”

“All 5 in our party caught fish and we were not expecting to.  Kevin kept the boat very clean and tidy and made sure that we all had everything that we needed.  Lunch was excellent also, as was the fruit.  We caught a mix of mahi-mahi and sailfish. We saw porpoises and turtles too.”

“Thanks so much!!!”

The Sherley/Jasak team continued their hot streak on the 15th with more great Sailfish action.

A pair of Sailfish releases got the party started, and then a MASSIVE Blue Marlin showed up looking for a fight.

Great work by Mate Johnny, Captain William, and this fun-loving group of Florida anglers

We got this great email once they got home:

“Craig,”

“I returned last week from my trip to Nosara. Chet Jasak had booked the trip for us over a year and a half ago and it was great to finally get to go fish with your team in Costa Rica. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the trip and will recommend Fishing Nosara to everyone.

“One of the guys we took fishing with us has ALS and his mobility and strength are not the best. Both Captain William and Captain Francisco really accommodated us so that we were able to help our friend Bob land both a Sailfish and Marlin.”

“Bob was a diver and commercial fisherman in his earlier years, we are all 71 or older, and as he said this was probably his last chance to catch a Sailfish or Marlin and Captains William and Francisco made it happen.”

“If Francisco wanted to he could have ended our day earlier but he hung in and we got the Sailfish at the end of the day. Captain William had to work the Wanderer over and over to keep the Marlin in position so Bob and I could get it landed. These men and their crew (Johnny and Elias) are much more than just employees, they have heart and your are blessed to have them on your staff.”

Lee Ann Martin was on the receiving end of great fishing action with multiple fun catches on the Harvester.

These nice (but blurry) Sailfish release shots were saved by the fact that Gail Burton took her own pictures…this is why it’s always smart to bring your own camera.

Later the group belted up for a bunch of Yellowfin Tuna catches.

Multiple simultaneous hook up led to several nice specimens on ice.

“We had the best time fishing yesterday!” Lee Ann sent us in an email. “Our Captain Alex was amazing! We caught lots of tuna & my sister got to reel in a sail fish!”
