The Wanderer split their last day with Jake Jump’s group between inshore and offshore action. Early in the day they braved intermittent rains to snag two excellent Rooster Fish releases.
Afterwords they went offshore and found a pair of sweet meat fish; these Dorados and Yellowfin Tunas aren’t exactly scale-tippers, but they all look good on the dinner plate.
Great work by the flagship Wanderer!
Mark Rogers got his week started right with Captain Alex reporting multiple Sailfish releases on May 20.
The second Sailfish release was a high-flying beast that put the Harvester to the test.
In addition to the trophy releases, the mega panga nabbed a boatload of Yellowfin Tunas. Great eats ahead for Mark Rogers and his posse.
Captain Alex kept the coals burning on May 17 with this sweet Sailfish release:
After the billfish was swimming free, the Harvester followed the dolphin schools and snagged dinner in the form of fresh Yellowfin Tuna.
Jake Jump and the Discoverer knocked it out of the park on the 16th with a great day of offshore action.
It started with this nice Sailfish release, then loaded up on tasty Yellowfin Tunas.
Great work by the big battleship!
The Discoverer welcomed a fun-loving group led by angler Lynsey Wheeler for a productive half day of action on May 10. A nice Sailfish release got things rolling:
Then a nice haul of Yellowfin Tunas rounded out the day.
Filets on ice and a trophy release for the scrapbook…all is a half-day’s work for the big battleship Discoverer.
On May 7 Captain Alex whipped up a Yellowfin Tuna feeding frenzy on the Harvester. Check out these excellent catches:
Our old pal TJ Conrads was on the scene to welcome these Yella Fellas.
The offshore bite has been on fire the last few days, and it looks like our Captains’ sharing of knowledge is paying off big time.
The Harvester called up Captain Fico on his phone and let him know that the big action was going on a dozen miles out in the blue water.
Angler Nicholas Grothe was the beneficiary of this action and scored multiple Sailfish releases backed up with perfect-for-eating Yellowfin Tunas filets.
John Jones of New York City joined Captain Alex on the 27th and jammed in as much good fishing as possible into their 5 hour trip.
Multiple Sailfish releases are quite memorable, but they didn’t leave empty handed, as a handful of Yellowfin Tunas provided the meat for the dinner table.
Excellent work by these Upper East Side anglers.
Dan Bowman and his girls had such a good time on the Wanderer on April 19 that he signed up for a return engagement on the morning of April 25 with the Explorer.
Well it turns out lightning can strike twice, as proved by this grand array of fresh fish filets.
For the afternoon session, Captain Fico welcomed Shawn Cline and Philip Yim. They also found great blue water success on the Super Panga.
This super Sailfish release was backed up by more nice Yellowfin Tunas.
Awesome work by Captain Fico and the Explorer.
FishingNosara Hall of Famer Chuck Darner invited Florida Sportsman Radio host Roger Walker for a fun week of action.
After lighting it up on the Harvester on the 23rd, they moved up to the Wanderer for a productive day offshore on the 24th. Roger got it started with this nice big Dorado.
Chris nabbed this schoolie Dorado, then hooked up a nice Sailfish.
Nice clean release by Mate Johnson of this monsters.
Then Captain William headed offshore and pursued a big school of porpoises. When they are packed in this thick you know that there is something tasty just beneath the surface.
Chuck Darner got in on the feeding frenzy with this sweet Dorado.
Then Roger Walker got in on the action with this beefy Yellowfin Tuna, clearly the best fish of the day:
Near the end of the day Chris hooked up another big Sailfish, which put on an aerial display on the way to a safe release.
Great work by Captain William to deliver the goods for these Northeast Florida angling legends.
