The evening of January 19 was a time for family and friends on the Super panga Explorer. Captain David was joined by his wife Betsy, Head groundskeeper of Nosara Paradise Rentals Grevan Hernandez, and our newest employee, Mechanic’s Mate Marino.

Marino has distinguished himself as the master golf cart mechanic in the area after many years working with our buddy Mike Eisenhower of Island Buggies. It is a treat to add such a skill member to the team and especially nice to see him haul in this nice snapper on the evening tides.

As usual the hot rod belonged to Betsy as she had a hand in filling the fishbox several times over.

Awesome evening of fun and fishing with friends and family…Pura vida!

Captain David took his wife Betsy and their kids for an evening cruise. After so many trips run it figures that David would want to relax, so it’s a good thing that Betsy and the kids are just as good on the reel as the old man.


Excellent Amberjack pulled off the reef by the David’s family, probably weighing 25lbs. Even on the Captain’s day off the Explorer catches fish!

Teacher’s day on the Explorer!

For the final day of the off-season Captain David and Javier welcomed two of the most respected English teachers in the area for a relaxing afternoon on the water.

Senior Marcos serves as a personal English tutor for the FishingNosara / Nosara Paradise Rentals staff and is also a much-sought after private tutor. This nice Amberjack he caught with Javier is tasty in any language!

Senora Betsy Chavarria Castillo teaches the youth of Nosara and also joined the boys for this fishing trip. She also hooked up a fine Amberjack and her devoted boyfriend also grabbed a nice Cierro Mackerel.

Excellent trip and fine catches on the Explorer for the teachers and our staff.

After a great day of fishing with Kurt Stecken, Captain David noticed the clear weather was sticking around and decided to squeeze in a quick family trip this morning. Joined by Nosara Paradise Rentals GM Javier Hernandez, Captain David and Betsy had a very fruitful 3 hour morning trip.

Nice roosterfish! Estimated to weigh 25lbs, this rooster was released. Later in the morning these locals put some dinner on the table in the form of three nice Yellowfin Tunas and a Yellowtail snapper.

It’s always great with our staff gets some time on the water. When one considers the effort to launched and recover both boats in a single morning it is clear that Javier and Captain David deserved some fun fishing. Awesome work!
