The Bill Harris group put in some excellent work on the Harvester in mid-November. Early in the trip they nabbed this world-class Sailfish release:

Then Mr. Harris buried the hooks in a swarm of big Dorados.

Ever wonder how we come up with our shirt designs? Inspiration abounds:

The posse scored another excellent Sailfish release to finish off the trip:

Great job by the baddest panga in Costa Rica!

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!

Multi-time FishingNosara Hall of Famer Bill Harris brought another posse of Tampa-area anglers for a week of blistering blue water action.

They booked the Wanderer and Discoverer for three days in early September.

We are still awaiting full reports, but for now lets check out the highlights, primarlily this sweet Black Marlin release on the Wanderer:

Bill Harris himself added a nice Sailfish release early on the first day, which was certainly a sign of things to come:

Over on the Discoverer Eli Bedran KO’d a nice Sailfish:

There were lots of bending rods and crushed beer cans all week long. Great work by this fun-loving group!

August 30 was getaway day for Bill Harris and the posse, and they rounded out their trip with an excellent outing to Sailfish City.

After an early pair of Sailfish releases, Captain William discovered a big school of porpoises on the feed…guess what they were feasting on?

That’s right: Beefy Yellowfin Tunas taste good to all mammals, both primates and cetaceans.

All these feeder fish attracted a few more Sailfish, which Team Harris released with glee.

Great work by this class of Hall of Famers on an excellent week of fishing.

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!

Bill Harris and the boys got off to a fast start yesterday, but today’s incredible catches put that old business far in the rear-view mirror. Elie was the icebreaker on this trip, releasing this Sailfish just after 9am.

The were more nice Sails close behind as the strikes came at a furious pace.

The action was intense when two lines sang off at once, setting the stage for another amazing Double Sailfish Release.

Looks like everyone got a photos with these lovely twins. Excellent fish handling by First Mate Alex to safely bill, revive, and release these fish.

What happened to your ballyhoo? Did a Sailfish rob you and run away? And what is First Mate Alex doing behind you?

Oh, I see. Putting the final touch on a wonderful five Sailfish release day on the mighty Wanderer!

April 26, 2013

FishingNosara veteran angler Bill Harris has built a solid reputation as a no-holds-barred fish catching machine. In the past he’s had lights-out performances on big Yellowfin tuna and Dorado but has yet to join our bill collectors club. Would he find the elusive Pacific Sail on his three trips this week?

The St. Petersburg, FL angler rolled into town deep this week with fellow Tampa/Pinellas boys Elie Bedran, Andrew Spangler, Joe Arriaga, Brady Harris and Roger Stephan.

Captain William’s plan for these guys? Take them out to Sailfish City and see who quits first…the fish or the fellas?

The Sailfish swarmed the spread thickly and the boys reeled quickly. This first high-flying Sail came in at 9am with several of her hunting buddies close behind.

After the first two releases the bite cooled off, but sure enough it fired right back up after 1pm. Here’s Brady Harris with one of the larger specimens.

The final release of the day came just after 3:30pm and put the perfect cap on a quadruple release effort


Of course First Mate Alex saw to the safe handling and live release of these rare creatures. The way this posse fishes we’re gonna need them around this week!

Most people don’t get to see grown men smiling and giggling like little boys, but it’s a near-daily occurrence on the flagship Wanderer.
