Javier led several great fishing campaigns at the Nosara River mouth this month, and has begun to explorer up the river and into the surf via Kayak.

Javier managed to snag this little Mangrove before it escaped into the weeds.

He also scored a nice Ciero Mackeral out past the breakers.

Of course the Rio is thriving with a wide array of creatures, including this family of brightly colored crabs.

The highlight of the month was an awesome Snook scored by our new friend Don Anglin. This hardcore shore angler serves as the Northern California Coordinator for Heroes on the Water, which is one of our favorite organizations.

His Snook hunt began in Tamarindo (70 miles north of us) and he worked his way south looking for the perfect fishing spot; his emails to Craig during his odyssey are priceless as he battled rains, limp bait, and his own traveling party weariness of the journey.

Finally, he got hooked up with this MASSIVE Snook under Javier’s careful tutelage:

Don was all smiles as he shared his triumph with the other Fuppernos:

Hi Craig,

I know you must be a busy man with everything going on here, so thanks so much for answering all my questions before and during my stay in Nosara.  I think I made a life time friend of Javier, defiantly my kind of fisherman and guy… needs work on the kayak surf landings though…Lol!!!  wish I has film rolling on that one, but hey, happens to the best of us… he also still kicked my butt fishing, so he has last laugh…

Love my New Fishing Nosara Hat!!!  Guys are already hitting me up about coming down to Nosara after some postings I have been doing… I’ll send your way or come back with them…

Either way, I know I’ll be back soon..

Thanks so much and

Pura Vida!!!
