Jeff Broome posted the trip of the year so far with Captain Alex on June 11. First off was a true Double Sailfish release.
After the safe release of both fish, they added a third Sailfish for good measure.
Then the real monster came calling as the Harvester reports another MASSIVE Marlin release (the second in two days):
Amazing work by Captain Alex, Mate Wilson, and these Jacksonville anglers.
Here’s what Jeff had to say in an email:
Craig & Matt,
Just wanted to say an enthusiastic THANK YOU for the incredible trip we had thanks to your team. In 3 days (June 9,10,11) we got 3 Marlin (2 blue and a massive black!) 3 sailfish, a huge Dorado, and a good deal more Tuna and Mahi.
Thanks to Capt Alex and his hard working deck hand Wilson, I was able to cross Marlin off my bucket list of fish to catch… definitely a dream for me and I know I speak for all the guys in our group that it was definitely the fishing trip of a lifetime!
You could tell how passionate Alex was about fishing… his favorite thing to say after we brought in a catch was, “Let’s get another one!”

Dan Bowman brought his kids along for a very memorable day of fishing with Captain William on the 19th.
Check out what Dan had to say:
Best fishing trip EVER — and I got to enjoy it with Chloe and Sophie, my 4.5 year old daughters! William and Johnny were the best.
We fought through a slow morning with a huge Cubera snapping off on the reef to landing 3 Sailfish in the early afternoon (the first two being a double hookup which was super exciting) to be followed up with a monster Dorado on the way home.
My girls had the best time ever, as did I! Memories to last a lifetime. Thank you and your crew for being so accommodating! Can’t wait to come back and go out again!

Kerri Watt scored some nice Yellowfin Tunas on board the Wanderer on March 29.
Here is what she had to say:
I caught my first fish (Yellowfin Tuna) yesterday and it was sooooo exciting!!! We are very excited to go [again] to catch some fish for Easter Dinner.
This excellent Sushi platter should be a good start:
Brendan Chenowith brought his sons along for a great day of action the 20th.
They bested some blue water billfish and also deployed the flyrod for tasty treats.
Here’s what Mr. Chenowith had to say in an email:
We had two great days with Alex on the Harvester. Alex put in a lot of effort to get us fish on the fly rods. He also did a fabulous job making our kids feel like they were the center of his attention.
His willingness to share his knowledge of the fishery taught us a lot about blue water and inshore fishing. We all came away from our experience wishing we far more time to spend in the Nosara area.
All my kids want to come back and fish again. I can’t ask for more than that. We intend to make it back soon.
The Explorer put in work on December 5 with clients Laura and Michael Price scoring some excellent filets for the dinner table.
The rods were bending all day. Here’s what Laura wrote on Facebook: “My husband and I went out today on the Explorer. We had an AMAZING time!!! We ended the day with 6 Mahi Mahi caught with 1 Mahi Mahi, 1 tuna and 1 marlin getting away. Phenomenal crew! We loved every minute of it!”
FishingNosara Hall of Famer TJ Conrads returned to Nosara with his wife Robin along with Kevin and Karen Bahr. They chose the Wanderer and scored a boatload of sweet fish filets.
Captain William located a massive school of spinning porpoises and the fish were excited to escape the cetaceans…right into the flagship’s fishbox!
In all they scored six Yellowfin Tuna averaging 20lbs., three small Dorado and a nice 20lbs. Dorado.
Here is what Kevin posted on Facebook: “We went with Captain William and his assistant, Johnny. They were very professional and ready to ensure we had a successful outing on May 12. The weather was pretty sketchy but we were able to locate the fish and ended up with a freezer full of ahi and mahi mahi. We cut our day short due to the weather but our crew was willing to stay out longer if we wanted to. Despite the weather, it was a great day!“
The Wanderer welcomed Jason Matherne’s group and over a two-day span they put a hurting on the local Sailfish. Joined by Ed and Pat Harrington, this “Cajun Crew” could not be stopped
Looks like everyone got a shot at their own behemoth.
Nice fish-handling by Mate Johnson to see all these billfish safely released.
In addition to these monster trophy fish releases, the flagship also nabbed some straggling Dorados.
Here is what Patrick had to say in an email:
“Please pass on to everyone behind the scenes our thanks and gratitude. We (the husbands) had a killer time fishing with both Capt. William & Capt. Carlos … you too, Antonio! We look forward to another trip (the husbands) in the future.”
Jacksonville angler Rory Gregg scored a nice Rooster fish with Captain David on the Adventurer.
“We worked hard and was slow most of the day but scored a nice rooster at the end,” writes Rory. “David was great!”
