April 5 brought a banner finish to the Russell Group’s week of fishing in Costa Rica. Captain William pointed the flagship Wanderer offshore to Sailfish City and these New Yorkers showed off the billfish fighting skills that they have honed over the last seven days.
The ladies’ kicked off the action with Sailfish release for each of them, then the boys strapped up for some big-time billfish battles.
First Mate Alex is on top of his game and released these fish with calm confidence.

The final send off was a beefy Dorado for Ken that satisfied his ‘fishing wishing’ list.
Check out this great email we received from Ken later in the week:
“We wanted to let you know that we all had an outstanding time in Nosara… the place was great, the staff were wonderful, and the fishing was beyond our expectations!”
“We had to add on another 1/2 day with David and Kevin when we found that we were facing two days in a row without going out on the water! Altogether we wound up with 3 full days on the Wanderer, 1/2 day on the Explorer and 1/2 day on the Adventurer…. all the boats were great as were all the crews.”
“I’ve got to say that William and Alex were genuine sweethearts and I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed going out with them—even the girls!…. aside from 32 sails, we caught 3 dorados (one being my “bucket list” grande mahi!).
“Please tell Paula that Brenda wore her Pink FishingNosara hat to catch some HUGE sails and let her know too that Brenda says she was right”
He’s right about the hat; check out Paula’s first trip to Nosara compared to Brenda’s recent conquest:
