FishingNosara Legends Ken and Brenda Russell joined Captain Alex on the 22nd, and right away Brenda posted the biggest Wahoo of the year so far.

Misti Nolan also nagged a super Sailfish release.

Of course it the Russells are fishing, you know Larry Komenda is going to be in the mix. Check out this excellent Yellowfin Tuna.

Captain Carlos was joined by our good friend Kevin Campbell on the 19th, and this Alaska-based angler put on a show with multiple Sailfish releases.

The Discoverer also reports a catch of the elusive Wahoo. These silver bullets are tough fighters and yield incredible tasty steaks.

They also added a decent Yellowfin Tuna to round out the haul.

Tampa angler John Harbord has returned to Nosara after 8 long years. He was enshrined in the FishingNosara Hall of Fame on the strength of our first ever Billfish Grand Slam:

This is back when we used to take the fish out of the water, a practice we abandoned in 2014 to ensure billfish safety.

They reunited with Captain Alex on the 15th and got right back to business with multiple Sailfish releases.

Dinner is on deck due to whopper Wahoos.

Amazing catches by the People’s Champion Harvester.

The Discoverer welcomed Thomas Kerl’s group for a 5 hour half day on the 18th, and despite the shortened day the battleship still delivered the goods.

Captain Fico reports that the staple catches of Yellowfin Tuna and Dorado were present, but suprisingly they also nagged a big Wahoo.

These silver bullets are common in our area but we rarely catch them because their sharp teeth destroy our all-monofiliment rigs (a Wahoo-specific rig uses wire instead of mono). Guess is was a lucky day for the big battleship.
