Man we love California anglers! A good friend of Shea McIntee (of Stoked on Fishing fame) named Ed Smith has brought his boys down to Nosara for a fun week of surfing and fishing.

On August 17 young Sean scored this excellent Sailfish release on the Explorer.

Ed writes: “Sean joined the billfish club today with his first sailfish on light gear.”

“I on the other hand came closer to my cubera snapper goal, losing a monster on a big popper in a few feet of water.”

“Nothing like seeing a 12-inch wide tail/back come crashing down on the jig! Off to buy more poppers tomorrow!”

 Still, Ed scored some excellent eating fish with a Yellowfin Tuna, Ponpano, and Snapper all on ice.
