Larry Komenda and Misti Nolan and Ken and Brenda Russell hail from upstate New York and we were stoked to get them some much needed fun in the sun. Their last trip to Costa Rica was during our legendary late-August bite and saw them scored a single-day record of Marlin releases on the Explorer
This time the mighty Wanderer also treated them to multiple trophy fish releases. They started the day inshore with a hefty Rooster Fish release:
Then Captain William headed off-shore and got them out in front of a pack of hungry Sailfish.
The Sailfish were starving for bait and First Mate Alex was more than happy to feed them some fat ballyhoo with a side of 9/0 circle hooks!
Everyone on board got a release and it was all big smiles for the Russell group.
