From the “Small World” department:
Dan Johnson from Hatteras was happy to welcome his new friend Antonio Carrillo to fish with him on Wednesday the 24th.
They met at the immigration line in Liberia airport last year while Dan was wearing a Fishing Nosara shirt when Antonio called him next in line
After many questions from Antonio, Dan said he fishes with Fishing Nosara and William Mendoza is my captain of many years
Antonio quickly said he is my father
It’s a small world
Dan has been trying to get Antonio to fish with him on a day off from the immigration police and it worked out great to fish with his father.
So on February 24, the Wanderer welcomed this most distinguished guest:
This may be a vacation for Officer Carillo, but the same can’t be said for the fish…the family scored over ten Red Groupers, plus a nice Yellowfin Tuna.
This trip was a ‘who’s who’ of local talent. Captain Fico of the Explorer came along, also a guest of Mr. Dan Johnson.
The fishing karma was so good that they scored a double Grouper catch even though the snap swivel was left unbuckled.
Near-shore Sailfish release were a welcome diversion.
Also Captain Fico scored an outstanding Yellowfin Tuna.
Here is Father and Son with an excellent Dorado:
“With the best Captain, my father.” Antonio posted.
