Captain Vibert then welcomed a very esteemed client, Mr. Sigurd Michelsen, to the shores of Nosara for a two-day fishing excursion. On November 5th they cruised the offshore depths and brought in two cubera snappers in the 15-30lbs. range. They also had two more on the line, but they were too massive to pull in this time.
On November 6th Sig was back onboard the Cabo for another day with Captain Vibert. They had a blast and swooped up some nice fish. He caught a pair of yellowfin tunas each weighing 15lbs. and a pair of black tunas weighing 10lbs. They also reeled in a big 65lbs. amberjack.
Finally Captain Vibert put Mr. Michelsen on a bubbling patch of water and dropped all the lines right into the middle. They found out what was causing all the fuss when the line popped off and shot straight down. One good hour of fighting later and Sig pulled in a Sleeper Shark (called a Whale shark in some places) weighing over 450lbs.
Javier and Eduardo have been fishing this week to make sure all of the fleet is ready for the new season. Look at this excellent Dorado caught by Eduardo:
Javier backed that up with more Mahi for the fishbox.
Most recently Captain Vibert welcomed client John for two days of fishing on October 13th and 14th.
The first day brought John and Captain Vibert tons of bites, and they reeled in five Dorado ranging from 20lbs. to 30lbs. They also grabbed four 10lbs. Black tunas and five 8lbs. Cobias.
The second day they loaded up to go hunt the big boys out in the deep water. The first hit was a small black tuna weighing around 10lbs.
Once the sun got overhead, the flashes of turquoise and gold came up from the deep; the telltale sign of a Dorado frenzy. One line popped off, then another. As fast as Vibert Jr. could boat one fish, another fish was on! By the end of the bite they had boated five Dorado ranging from 20lbs. to 40lbs.
They weren’t quite done yet. With the crew dialed in and the weather cooperating, John went looking for the billfish. A few sailfish were sniffing the bait and Vibert showed the patience that 30 years on the water imparts. Finally one of the big sailfish hit hard! John belted up and engaged the fish in a spirited half-hour duel. He brought it into the boat where the crew estimated a weight of well over 100lbs!
On August 30th the staff of Nosara Paradise Rentals took an end-of-season trip and had a MASSIVE catch. The crew did quite well catching a 25lbs. wahoo, six 12lbs. yellowfin tunas, and five 10lbs. rainbow runners. They also caught a massive cubera snapper, estimated to weigh 70lbs.
These guys and gals work tirelessly to make our slice of paradise accessible and accommodating
to all our guests, so it great to see them have a little fun and catch a lot of fish.
