The Wanderer stayed inshore with Doug and Andrew and scored a nice Snapper for the icebox.

They also fought a medium-sized Rooster Fish all the way to the boat, but First Mate Alex felt it was too weakened to be brought into the boat, so they released him alongside.

Another marked-up scorecard by Doug Dickman and Andrew Queral.

Andrew Queral and Doug Dickman took the Wanderer for an excellent day of action on the flagship. The fish were fired up for these Maryland-based anglers.

First order of business was knocked the Rooster fish off of the bucket list, and the mighty blue beauty obliged with this excellent Pez Gallo release.

Captain William pointed the flagship offshore and First Mate Alex deployed the spread for billfish.

Andrew and Doug kept the good times rolling with another nice Sailfish release.

In no time flat a pair of hungry Sailfish showed up and threw down the gauntlet.

Both fish safe released after the photos.

The highlight of the trip came in the afternoon in the form of this gnarley Striped Marlin:

The releases are the achievement of a lifetime for any angler, however pictures on a memory card don’t fill the belly…After a great day of trophy fish releases, you know that these guys weren’t going home empty handed.

This beefy Yellowfin Tuna was the finishing touch on a perfect day of fishing in Costa Rica!

Andrew Queral and Doug Dickman got off their week of Costa Rica fishing off to a blazing start! They notched the Wanderer‘s scorecard with a big Dorado, several Sails, and a MASSIVE Marlin.

A nice pair of Sailfish were the highlight of the morning, and a mid-day Bonita catch led to First Mate Alex reaching deep into his bag of tricks:

The crew moved quickly to rig a hook to this Bonita and keep him alive in the Tuna Tubes…this bait was pitched into the spread when a big Black Marlin hit.

In the afternoon they accidentally hooked-up a small Shark and released it after the photo:

It wasn’t all releases, though; this floor-sweeping Dorado certainly melted a bit of ice and served as the cherry on top of a perfect day of fishing.
