FishingNosara Hall of Famer Bill Harris has returned and brought a big group of Tampa Bay anglers with him for several days of blue water fishing in Costa Rica.
On the Discoverer, the team of Eli Bedran, Andrew Lipps, Kelsey Harry and Laurie Harry report a fantastic Blue Marlin release (the first of the year for the big battleship) backed up by six nice Dorados.
Tampa angler Bill Harris is a returning FishingNosara Hall of Famer and in mid-November he brought another great group of anglers to ply waters off of Nosara with Captain William on the flagship Wanderer.
In addition to Mr. Harris the Wanderer welcomed Joe Arriaga, Mark Scott, Brady Harris, Jimmy Erwin, and Ron Cox for three days of action. They started off inshore with some Bonitas and a nice Jack Crevelle, then on their second day headed offshore. Here is a shot of the new-look Wanderer taken from the Discoverer:
The Wanderer worked in tandem with the Discoverer to pluck some tasty Yellowfin Tunas from under this feeding school of porpoises:
On the third day they trolled offshore and a tasty Dorado:
Great work by our old friend Bill Harris and his posse!
Team Harris had another outstanding day on the flagship Wanderer with a chocked-full scorecard of Sailfish. They got a pre-dawn start as Captain William put them out in front of a swarm of beautiful Sails:
These fish were fired up but this group of Tampa, FL anglers put the heat on them with stiff drag and fast reeling.
Great releases all around as the Wanderer continues to set the bar for great Costa Rican sportfishing.
Returning Hall of Famers Bill Harris, Brady Harris and Elie Bedran are back and they brought fellow anglers Scott Cox, Mark Scott and his dad Lee Scott along for this Costa Rica Fishing adventurer.
The mighty Wanderer was the chosen vessel as Captain William set out for Sailfish City.
First Mate Alex put out an irresistible spread that courted five Sailfish releases.
I meant ‘irresistible’ to Sailfish, buddy.
“Craig, wow what a fantastic day. 5 sails, 2 mahi.” Mark writes. “Great day, action was great plus 5 strikes and 2 billfish up on the teasers. Dude what a day, I got to see my dad at 70 get to reel in his first billfish..priceless.”
“Thanks for giving us this opportunity.”
This group of Tampa Bay anglers also scored a couple of nice Dorados, highlighted by this deck sweeper:
These guys have two more full days of action planned and we are all stoked to see what they haul in next.
Getaway day for the Bill Harris group! After releasing nine Sailfish in two days it stands to reason that things would slow up for the boys. Still they found this straggler Sailfish poking around the baits; this release brings their group total to ten for the week!
It was cold beers, celebratory cubanos, and big smiles for these Floridans as they polish off an excellent three days of fishing in Costa Rica. Great job guys!
