On November 18th these clients had an absolute blast on a half-day fishing trip on the Nice n’ Tight. They caught several tunas and enjoyed fresh sushi served up by Captain Eduardo. These clients also reported seeing schools of spinner dolphins and a small pod of gray whales.
Day Three for John, Joe, and Bruce brought more Yellowfin to the Wanderer. These big Yellas are biting fiercely right now and should continue for the rest of the season.
The boys went offshore on Tuesday November 16th and had a field day on the Yellowfins, this time the mack daddy weighed in over 75lbs.
The bite was so thick that eventually they started catching and releasing; unheard of for nice meat fish like these, but there was enough tonnage that ice consumption was a concern.
Captain Eduardo and the legendary fish-catching Nice n’ Tight are back in the water and the fish are already running for cover. It’s a futile effort, because once again Captain Eduardo’s clients are going home with full fish boxes and big smiles.
On Tuesday November 16th newlyweds Miles and Vanessa Anderson had a fantastic day on the Nice n’ Tight with Captain Eduardo. In no time at all they yanked a nice 25lbs. Yellowfin Tuna off the inshore reefs.
Later, the line popped off as a massive Amberjack challenged Miles to a fight. With Captain Eduardo guiding the action, Miles Anderson prevailed and the happy couple celebrated their last day in Nosara with a Tuna filet lunch and an Amberjack dinner.
On behalf of the FishingNosara family, Congratulations and Good Luck to the Andersons.
November 14 was a big day for the Wanderer. In the morning, Matty and client Eduardo Barrios caught two little White Tunas, then deep jigged for a nice 25lbs. White Tuna. Then Matty hooked up this massive 50lbs. Cabrilla (Broomtail Grouper).
The fight was short but violent, and about three minutes after this picture was taken, Matty took a 45 minute nap in the cabin.
After picking up Craig at Garza, they went 25 miles offshore seeking the blue water.
After boating several 20-30lbs. Yellowfin Tunas, Eduardo hooked up a beautiful Striped Marlin. He put on a show, but managed to cut the line off on a stray piece of driftwood less than 100 feet from the boat. Eduardo did everything right, but the Stripey got away.
All told they caught eight Yellowfins with the big one weighing 40lbs. Great trip!
Most recently Captain Vibert was joined by Cayleah Matthews and her friend for a pleasant afternoon on the water. The weather was perfect, the clients had an absolute blast and rods stayed bent on schools of nice-sized Tuna.
On June 23rd client TJ Boulware and his party were on the Wanderer for a 2.5 hour sunset cruise and caught three decent-sized Yellowfin tunas.
These sunset cruises are a great chance for novice anglers to get a feel for fishing without the expense of a full day trip. Our crews are excellent teachers of the craft of fishing and they speak very good English.
Even if you have little or no experience on the water FishingNosara’s Captains can deliver for you the fishing trip of a lifetime. Clearly from these pictures these ladies got the fishing bug and will no doubt find themselves on the water really soon.
Regular readers of the FishingNosara Costa Rica Fishing Report will remember that last month client Buddy Cherry caught four 20lbs. Yellowfin Tunas on June 15th. Well turns out that on June 16th Captain William put this client on a school of MASSIVE Yellowfin Tuna. The whopper was over 150lbs!
Seriously, I can not understate how big this fish is…Buddy Cherry is a big North Florida boy and notice that the fish is almost his size.
Forget about mates Alex and David…This fish is way bigger than they are! This achievement capped off a great week in Costa Rica for Mr. Cherry and has earned him a spot in the newly created FishingNosara Hall of Fame.
Another great angler filled up his refrigerator on June 15th by catching four 15-25lbs. Yellowfin tunas.
These reef dwellers are as tasty as they are fun to catch. They are feisty and will fight all the way to the boat. Fortunately the North Florida anglers get plenty of practice with a wide variety of species and this group was all over these tasty Yellowfin tunas.
