Captain Vibert on the Cabo – Black Marlin Battle
Captain Eduardo on the Nice n’ Tight – Sailfish Battle
On January 25th, 26th, and 27th the Wanderer was honored to welcome Captain Kevin Faver, his wife Carrie, and the crew of The Outdoors Show for a few days of fishing and filming. Kevin and Carrie repeated last year’s success by catching four Dorados and releasing seven Sailfish.
Also Kevin released one of the nicest Rooster Fish of the year so far. These episodes should air soon, so keep an eye on this report for airtimes and channels.
April 21st was Captain Eduardo’s turn with The Outdoors Show team. Once again Kevin and Carrie Faver, Mike, Craig and Manuel were along for the cruise. They warmed up by catching a 15lbs. dorado and a 35lbs. yellow tuna. The big hit came in the form of this strong-fighting 120lbs. sailfish.
Be sure to watch this catch:
Captain Vibert got The Outdoors Show team onboard for one of the most memorable catches of the year so far. Crewed by Vibert Blanche Jr. and David Barrantes, Captain Vibert took the Cabo inshore first, sight casting around for the shallow fish. They left the area only after hauling in a 50lbs. Cuberra that according to Craig Sutton “hit the lure like a Buick!”
Around 2:00pm they headed out for deeper water. They trolled around for less than a hour before a magnificent 400lbs. black marlin hit the spread. Craig hooked it, then Kevin Faver fought the great fish for 40 minutes, highlighted by a 35 second stretch of above-water motion. After a grueling fight, and a long week of fishing, Mr. Faver had caught himself a big-time Costa Rican black marlin!
“Everytime I think about that fish, a big smile creeps across my face.”
-Kevin Faver, one week after the catch
