The action was just getting started for the Good Doctors as Captain David switched up tactics and dropped some deep rigs to the bottom. Look and what was lurking beneath:
This Cuberra Snapper is a full 50+lbs. and it was a monster to catch. If yesterday’s big Dorado wasn’t enough to keep these boys fed this Red Buick should fill up the rest of the refrigerator.
Sensing the need for appetizers, the Explorer put Yellowfin Tuna sushi on the menu with this very nice 25lbs. specimen. On a slower day this fish would be considered the highlight, but clearly the bite was on fire and Captain David kept the Explorer‘s presentation one step ahead of the fish.
The Explorer‘s fishboxes were so full that they smartly began to target catch and release species. This Rooster fish is a beautiful example of this species. What amazing markings!
Late in the day they hooked up an acrobatic Sailfish and got some great photos, however this one spit the hook after a short fight.
We’ll keep an eye out for these anglers as they take to the Wanderer for a few days offshore; perhaps this gal’s still out there waiting for them.
