Just because the boats are afraid to fish does not mean the fish are afraid to eat.
The never-quit Explorer is powering through this ‘off-season’ with three great trips with newlyweds Veronica and Larry Tatum.
On September 9 they ventured offshore for the first of three 5hr. trips and scored a pair of Sailfish along with a nice bycatch of Rainbow Runners and Mole Snappers.
The next day they added another nice Sailfish, plus another pile of Snappers.
Larry also got the best of this 25lbs. Rooster Fish:
Nice fish-handling by Mate Fico to see this fish to a safe live release.
That funky fish on the left is called a Barbero Snapper and is certainly a rare catch in our area.
September 12 was getaway day, and once again Larry and Veronica found Sailfish success.
Great work by the legendary Explorer and the fearless Captain Carlos.
