The Wanderer welcomed Mikaela, Abby, and friends for an excellent sunset cruise.
These girls are from Middlebury College (VT) and are teaching English at the Nosara Library for free. Joined by Manuel they caught a couple black tunas and lost a big fish. They also were delighted by a huge school of dolphins. FishingNosara supports the local schools and we are pleased to see such nice young ladies providing this valuable service to our community.
With the Marlin Bite in full force, clients Ted and Linda Thompson booked the Wanderer on January 15th and was at the reel for a double Marlin release: A 200lbs. Black Marlin and a 250lbs. Blue Marlin!
She went looking for the grand slam, but was satisfied enough with the two big boys and a 20lbs. Dorado. It was a great day for the boat, client, and crew!
Captain William has the Wanderer dialed in for the new season, and in just two short months this boat has gone from the newcomer to a contender for top boat in the area.
On December 26, 2009 client Caleb Rose, his father Chris and sister Vita were on board the Wanderer.
“My trips were great,” Caleb writes. “I personally caught probably 10 Dorado and three white tuna. My father was thrilled to catch a 130lbs. Sailfish and several Dorado. My sister also caught two Dorado. Captain William did a great job of putting us on the fish and the mates (Alex and David) were very helpful and great to work with.”
Chris Rose continues, “We had a blast. The crew was exceptional, the boat was terrific, the weather was great, the fish were cooperative, and we are depressed to be in 14 degree weather with snow on the ground! Returning to Costa Rica is a priority for us.”
Clients Neil Jerome and Jim Rey were on the Wanderer. Not to be outdone by brother Dan, Jim Ray had some nice luck hooking up these big 35-40lbs. Dorados not too far offshore.
No word yet on the sibling fishing rivalry, but I do know that Dan is on his way back down to Nosara in January and might have something to prove.
The Wanderer has performed beautifully so far and we expect a great 2010 season from the blue beauty. It seems like most of the Marlin hungry clients are revved-up to get on this boat, so hurry up and reserve your dates today!
On November 30 it was Wayne Patterson’s turn to harvest the blue waters, and this Jacksonville Beach native knew exactly what to do. He got on this huge wahoo and brought her all the way in on a stand-up fight. “It was awesome, man,” Wayne said in an email. “My first wahoo ever and I’ll never forget it.” It was enough of a catch to make the newspaper all the way back in Jax Beach.
Wayne was joined by fellow Jacksonville client Rocky Warpool and his buddies, and right off the bat Rocky caught a HUGE Blue Marlin. The following day they had an incredible time on the Dorados and more wahoo, plus they had about as much fun as you can have. Check out these big smiles!
Here are some great videos that Rocky shot on this trip:
