After a few days of assembly and shake-down, the Discoverer is in the water and catching fish!
Captain David has accepted the promotion to the new 31′ battle wagon and has tapped Mate Kevin to stick with him on this transition. On their first trip they were joined by Mate Fico and young Garza legend Hernan for an offshore trip with Craig Sutton and Ms. Paula.
Our new vessel headed to the blue water flanked by the FishingNosara flagship Wanderer and the super panga Explorer, and this three-headed fishing monster found a big mancha of spinning porpoises.
You know what that means….Yellowfin Tuna time!
Craig nabbed the first 15lbs. Yella Fella, then young Hernan strapped up for an Ahi of his own.
Ms. Paula notched the first billfish in Discoverer history with this fine Sailfish release, assisted by Mate Kevin.
In addition to dialing in the fishing tools for the new boat, Captain David and Mate Kevin are also experimenting with new photography angles to best deliver the blue water action to your eyeballs. With a 21′ tower and all kinds of good sight-lines it will be no time at all until we can all see how fun fishing on the Discoverer can be.
All smiles all around on the unflappable Discoverer!
The Adventurer produced excellent results this month with a wide variety of catches. Check out just a sampling of the inshore morsels that the pocket knife pried up thanks to the moxy of Captain Carlos:
This Broomtail Grouper is definitely an exciting addition to the haul.
Yellowfin Tuna, big Dorado, and Wahoo may be offshore species where you come from, but with the nimble Adventurer these fish market scores can be had just 2 miles from the beach.
Of course a staple of our tasty fish rountine is the delectable White Tuna. These fellas rarely top 15lbs, but every ounce is filled with yummy goodness!
