Client John Baumgart and his wife set off on their first of three fishing trips with FishingNosara on June 22. They chose the mighty Wanderer for their inaugural trip and within the first hour of trolling were rewarded with this mammoth Yellowfin Tuna.
First Mate Alex put out the billfish spread and around 11am a big mean Pacific Sailfish had gulped the hook and was pulling against Mr. Baumgart with all of its strength.
All eyes were on John as he slowly won back line from the monster and brought her alongside the Wanderer. Captain William displayed his mastery of boat handling as he cut off this creature’s attempts to outflank the flagship.
Good game, shake hands.
As always this billfish was safely released and we look forward to catching her another day. Great start to the week for Team Baumgart.
