The Wanderer stayed inshore during late-April to take advantage of an influx of 5-10lbs. Red Groupers.
These may not look impressive, but don’t forget that they are coming in multiple strikes and the fishbox fills up quickly.
In addition to the meat yield, the strikes are fun and the fights are easy.
“What a great week of fishing!” writes Dustin Purvis. He fished with Brandy Willis and Brady Schmidt, and there was plenty of action to go around.
“6 Sailfish and several Dorado caught with two great crews. Awesome accommodations, and plenty of great people to meet. We will be back!”
“Mate Johnson and Mate Juan Carlos were a blast to be around on the water.”

Fortunately the bite stayed good, as evidenced by this tasty Dorado for the dinner table caught by Dustin Purvis.
Our long time friends Ken and Brenda Russell were back on the water for another great day of action on the Wanderer.
