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.
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
