Jenny Hernandez’ group hit the water on the Adventurer and scored big on two lovely-tasting fish. First up with this 35lbs. Dorado, a real treat this close the shore.

Then they followed up with a jaw-dropping Yellowtail. Look at the beauitful markings on this tasty morsel.

Great job by the fish catching machine Captain Carlos!

Justin Morris and his girl hit on four different species of tasty fish with Captain Carlos on the Adventurer.

This beefy Dorado was the first catch of the day, but by no means was the biggest…get a load of this 30lbs. Cubera Snapper:

They rounded out the day with a perfect-for-sushi Yellowfin Tuna and the elusive Yellowtail Snapper. Both of these fish add a fantastic variety to the dinner table.

Great work by Captain Carlos and the excellent 23-foot Adventurer.

Doc Hatton and the posse are back on the Wanderer and were welcomed with improved weather and a gaggle of hungry fish.

The battleground was less than a mile from Garza point and the Wanderer defended her home turf by building up a classic feeding frenzy. The first catch was a juvinile Yellowtail Snapper, followed up by a medium-sized Nurse Shark.

An inauspicious start indeed, however this is the first phase of stirring up a bottom fish bite. Sure enough the action coaxed some big fish up from their seafloor hiding spots.

 

 

This Broomtail Grouper is a real monster! Right behind it was another nice-sized bottom dweller:

 

 

 

 

The bite stayed strong and a group of Jack Crevelle swung by to investigate the fishy waters.

 

The final jewel in the Wanderer‘s bottom fishing crown was this nice Rooster fish.

We release this species, but with the massive Snapper and Grouper catches from earlier it is safe to say that Doc Hatton and his group will be well-stocked with filets this week.

Kyle Lewis and his friends took to the blue water on the unstoppable Explorer and bagged some great-eatin’ fish for their week in Nosara.

First up was this big Yellowtail snapper; this is the second whopper of this variety this week and is certainly a Christmas treat for our anglers.

Lori Seiler and her posse of CCA Florida anglers put pressure on the big time reef dwellers on board the Wanderer. Captain William took them to a great bite of fish and the action stayed hot all day long. The first fish in the box was the rare and elusive Yellowtail:

This tasty specimen is excellent table fare and it is unusual to see one of this size.

They followed up with another rare species for our area with two nice Blue Trevally:

Mark and Deb Collins of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL had a wonderful time on the Wanderer on July 6. The blue beauty stayed inshore and pulled up a pair of tasty snappers.

This Cubera Snapper is estimated around 25lbs. and is the perfect size for this kind of fish when you are looking for the best tasting filets; any larger and they start to lose their density.

Deb followed up the big fish with this little 6lbs. Yellowtail Snapper. This is a rare delicacy in our area: this Yellowtail is only the third of the season for the team.
