November 14 will be a day that John Schimkaitis, Heather Cozart and Jared Cozart never forget as they enshrined themselves in the FishingNosara Hall of Fame with a legendary BILLFISH GRAND SLAM!
First up was John nabbing a 100lbs. Sailfish, released early in the trip, completing the first leg of the Grand Slam.
Then a 100lbs. Striped Marlin came calling around noon; not the biggest specimen we’ve ever seen but Jared’s catch still counts as the second piece of the Grand Slam.
Finally it was Heather’s turn on the reel for a MASSIVE Blue Marlin estimated by Mate Kevin upon release to be well over 350lbs.
The action was so hot on the Discoverer that the scorecard shows more than just Billfish releases; a good array of Dorado and Yellowfin Tuna means that these North Carolina anglers will be able to replenish their strength at the dinner table.
Fantastic work by Captain Carlos and the unbeatable battleship Discoverer!
The Discoverer welcomed Stephanie Vinat’s group for a 6.5 hour trip on November 11 and they had an absolute blast on the big battleship.
This Marlin release is a great angling achievement, and these folks didn’t leave empty-handed thanks to a variety of nice Dorados and Yellowfin Tunas.
Captain William welcomed our old pal Joe Goins for a fun trip to the fish market on the 10th.
How exciting was this Yellowfin Tuna score? This guy’s face says it all.
The best part about a full boat of Dorado scores is full bag of fish filets for the dinner table.
Jason Frelich of Satellite Beach, FL is used to plying the nearby blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, but in early November his group found out what kind of monsters dwell out here in the Pacific.
Even this finch wanted to get a closer look at this beastie:
The biggest of these Yellowfin Tunas are easily upwards of 70lbs., meaning these boys will have plenty to eat this week.
Great work by Captain Alex and the awesome Harvester!
Shane Miers’ group had a wonderful day on the Harvester highlighted by big Yellowfin Tunas.
This tasty Yella Fella was backed up by several sweet Dorados.
Great work by the mega panga!
Lisa Carter braved wet conditions on October 1st and scored a quartet of tasty Tunas.
Great work by the brave Explorer!
Rachael and Maurice Taylor had a nice run of trips with Captain Fico on September 26th and 27th.
The highlight was this sweet Sailfish release, but the haul also included a good number of Yellowfin Tunas backed up by a couple big Dorados.
Excellent work by the barroom brawler!
Gary Killam knocked it out of the park on the Wanderer with a fantastic Blue Marlin release:
Earlier in the day they filled up the fishbox with Dorado and Yellowfin Tunas on the deck.
Great work by these Tampa based anglers!
Captain David is back in action with an excellent performance on the 20th. Joined by angler Kevin Jackson.
This MASSIVE Cubera Snapper was the highlight of a day where the rods stayed bent. They also added two nice Dorados and over a dozen football-sized Yellowfin Tuna.
Great work by the powerful Adventurer.
Two of our oldest and best friends joined the Wanderer for a fun day of inshore action on September 16th.
Bobby Dean and Steven Dix brought home a big batch of Yellowfin Tuna filets. Excellent work by the flagship.
