Captain David kept the Explorer inshore today with client Brandon Perez and his wife. They enjoyed lots of rod-bendin’ action highlighted by a big Yellowtail Snapper and a nice Jack Crevalle.
They added a small White Tuna later on and had a big Rooster fish hooked to a topwater plug, but lost him. Excellent catches though from these South Florida anglers.
Mark Shaw had such a blast fishing this week that he signed up Captain David and Pipio for an extra day of action. The green water made the decision to stay inshore a no-brainer, and Mr. Shaw filled the fishbox of the Explorer with fresh fish filets.
Highlighted by a 20lbs. Cubera snapper and more than a dozen Jack Crevalles, Mark also picked up this Yellowtail snapper to round out his trip to the fish market. Great job Mr. Shaw!
Craig Sutton and Danny “Shake and Bake” Baker were honored to welcome Lifetime FishingNosara Hall of Famer Señorita Richmond Phipps to the Wanderer for an excellent trip that covered the entire fishery both offshore and inshore. Sra. Phipps got things going early and taught the boys exactly how Costa Rica billfishing is done.
They obviously learned a thing or two because Danny followed up Richmond’s catch with a beautiful Sailfish of his own.
As the day wore on the Wanderer proceeded inshore to see what tasty morsels they could pull off the reef. Craig and Danny bent a few rods and piled the fishbox with a Yellow Tail Snapper and a Gilguero Snapper.
Great work by a true FishingNosara legend, the one-and-only Richmond Phipps!
