Craig Sutton bests two blue water beasties on April 22. Both safe released as always by Captain Alex.
We were stoked to welcome Bill Haire and the Carolina Outdoors TV show early in thie year, and they have finally aired. Enjoy these great experiences from Nosara, Costa Rica:
Adam Turner and Meredith Arnold of Jacksonville are the winners of the El Cheapo Sheepshead Tournament prize back in February, and they celebrated with this excellent Rooster Fish release on July 23:
Excellent work by Captain William to put this fun-loving group on the fish!
Our old pal George Kommick had a wonderful run of trips with Captain Fico from July 15 to July 18th. The first day they filled the refrigerator with a wide array of tasty filets.
The highlight of the week came with the capture and release of this high-flying Blue Marlin:
Estimated around 400lbs., this is clearly a memorable catch for this great angler.
Jacksonville’s own Brian Dutcher, Jose, and Bubba from the Lil’ Hooker Fishing Team had a big time on board the Discoverer as Captain Carlos kept them on the fish.
Spinning porpoise pods led the way to the action and the weapon of choice was top-water plugs on spinning tackle.
These guys could barely get the hooks back in the water before enduring another wave of Yellowfin Tuna attacks.
With all these Tunas on ice, Mate Kevin was more than willing to share his fileting duties with Mr. Dutcher.
All in a day’s work for the big battleship Discoverer.
The Harvester welcomed one of FishingNosara’s oldest friends Roche Jaggeli of Playa Avellanas for a great day of action on June 6.
Roche has fished with us since the very beginning of FishingNosara and it’s always a treat when he comes south to visit us.
The day’s haul was highlighted by three big Yellowfin Tunas (60lbs., 34lbs., and 26lbs.) and of course the MASSIVE 54lbs. Dorado.
The legendary Dan Johnson rejoined the Wanderer for a billfish hunt on February 27, and along with his daughter Delaney Johnson scored a big Blue Marlin backed up by a nice Sailfish.
This monster weighs well over 300lbs. and is certainly a breathtaking achievement.
Delaney’s Sailfish was no slouch either, putting up a big fight on the way to a safe release.
Jerome McKown’s boys from Texas continued their hot fishing with Captain Alex on February 2. The Harvester headed off-shore and found the waters thick with Sailfish.
Everyone had multiple shots at big Pacific Sailfish.
Excellent fish handling by Mate Kevin to execute all these safe releases.
Captain Alex proves once again why he is Garza’s fastest rising star!
