After a great morning with the Brothers Bates, the mighty Wanderer came back to Garza to pick up Mike Reed and his group.

They had piled the fishbox high with Dorado and Snapper filets earlier in the week with on the Explorer so on this trip they set their sights directly on blue water billfish!

Throughout the trip they caught and released five Pacific Sailfish ranging from 70lbs. – 90lbs. Safe fish handling by First Mate Alex and masterful boat work by Captain William spelled doom for these beauties; seems like every time a line hit the water a billfish was ready to pounce.

Let’s hope this strong action stays consistent through the middle part of our season here. Stay tuned!
