Jacksonville angler Frederick Porcase signed up for three days on the Wanderer from June 11th-13th and he had his mind firmly set on catching billfish. The crew was up to the challenge and for three days they chased the biggest, fastest, toughest fish in the ocean with excellent results.

Sporting a razor-sharp meter-long spear and a top speed of 68mph, Pacific Marlins can only be safely caught with the right combination of boat, tackle, crew and angler working together seamlessly.

On the first day they live released this 300lbs. Marlin and lost a 350lbs. Blue Marlin very close from the boat. The lines were popping all day though with seven Yellowfin tunas and a 50lbs. Dorado on ice by days’ end.

On June 12th Mr. Porcase and his party had another 300lbs. Marlin on the line but he bit off the leader and got away. No worries though, because the day was saved with a pair of great Sailfish releases and six 15lbs. Yellowfin tunas in the fishbox.

Their final day on the Wanderer was highlighted by the largest Sailfish release of the month (150+lbs.) and a big 40lbs. Amberjack.

Mr. Porcase would go on to have two fantastic days on the Cabo as well and it is safe to say that his five day fishing trek was the most fruitful in recent memory. Great work by the respective crews, Captains, and anglers!

June 10th was a chance for the staff of Nosara Paradise Rentals to get out on the water and do a little ‘research’ for the company. General Manager Javier Hernandez, Concierge Manuel DeCampos, and Chief Groundskeeper Grevin Hernandez had great success on  a three-hour sunset cruise.

They caught seven 20lbs. Yellowfin tunas, a 15lbs. Ponpano, a 12lbs. Amberjack, and a 12lbs. Rainbow runner. Our staff is the best in the business and they can fish!

Craig Sutton was joined by clients Ray Carter and the lovely Georgia peach Paula Price for a great trip on the Wanderer on May 30th.

The weather was just about as perfect as could be imagined and the party had a fantastic array of catches. In total they caught a mean little 20lbs. Wahoo (above), a 30lbs. Amberjack, a 35lbs. Cuberra snapper and two 12lbs. Yellowfin tuna.


The highlight of the trip was a pair of 100+lbs. Sailfish releases. Paula showed her skills on the reel as both fights were under ten minutes and both fish were released.

One of my best friends Jacksonville angler Chetri Dimitroff was aboard the Wanderer on May 28th and caught his first ever Pacific Blue Marlin. The fight lasted seventeen minutes and ended with a safe live release. Chetri represents FishingNosara at fishing tournaments around Florida; last year he placed in the Kingbuster 400. This trip, Chetri and his posse had an awesome time and caught nice tattooed sunburns.

The Wanderer took her first trip to the hill this month as Captain William and Mates Alex and David gave all the major systems a check-up.

After four months in the water, I am happy to report that the Wanderer is nearly as perfect as the day we launched her.

With a new coat of deck paint to keep things shiny the Wanderer was once again ready to catch some fish.
