After their inshore successes the Gene Pleasants group finished off their Costa Rica trip with a journey to Sailfish City. Captain William led the way to a day of big strikes and fantastic releases.

The moment the sun came up the Sails were chomping, and once the spread was deployed the strikes came in like wildfire.

After the first release another charged-up Sailfish hit the hook!

Each member of the group got a Sailfish release of their own, plus a few double dipped.

At the end of the trip, Gene broke out a little toy he brought from North Carolina: an Mirrorlure electric reel.

We mounted this winch up to one of our new custom Poiseden Rods and flipped the switch on a nice Sailfish.

New tech, same result! A great was to end an action-packed day on the mighty Wanderer.
