For the first time in 59 days we have a fishing report to share with the people. The motor on the Explorer has been repaired, but of course she needed a quick water test.

Captain Alex took the helm for the test drive and was joined by Javier and Freddy for a 2 hour tour. They threw out the ceder plugs and the Yella Fellas couldn’t resist.

Clearly the fish missed us, because the boys boated THIRTY Yellowfin Tunas as fast as they could reel.

Do the math: 4 minutes per fish is world-class angling!

These filets will keep the team motivated on their construction projects, and remind us why we work so hard. What a blessing to get back out on the water!

River Fishing Report – October 2014

Road trip time for the Fuppernos (Friends of the River)!

Javier, Freddy, and the boys loaded up and headed east across the country to a little fishing camp on the Rio Colorado.

The highlight of the trip was this beefy Robalo (Snook) snared by Freddy Poloma:

Also it was great for the guys to try their techniques in a different fishery, plus there was ample opportunities for good bonding amongst the Fuppernos.

They returned home after a great long weekend on the east coast to find that torrential seasonal rains had washed a mountain of trash into the Rio Nosara.

As always Javier and the Fuppernos rallied the troops for a river clean-up to keep this resource in pristine condition.

Since then there has been excellent action at the river mouth. Check out this monster Snook hooked-up by local anglers Tanayo and Alonso Aragon:

Great action from the best kept fishing secret in Costa Rica, the Rio Nosara!

Nosara Paradise Rentals GM, Fuppernos presidente, and Mayor of Nosara Javier Hernandez took to the seas today on the Wanderer.

Flanked by Chief Mechanic Marino, Driver Primero Freddy, and Mate Kevin (of the Explorer), Senor Javier released an awesome Sailfish just a few miles from shore.

Nice work by Mate Kevin on the rope-n’-release!

Javier’s got a family to feed, so after the trophy release he dropped a bait to the reefs and hauled in this big Cubera Snapper.

All in a day’s work for the Mayor!

Captain David is the lead dog when it comes to boat maintainace. He is on a hot streak this summer with the new panga boat and all the Explorer repairs finished in record time. So much so, that he took a few days this week to repaint the flagship Wanderer.

The Wanderer is on standby in Garza bay so naturally the staff at Nosara Paradise Rentals coerced Captain William and First Mate Alex to take them out for a little trip to the fish market.

The almost-finished rainy season has pushed a lot of felled trees down the rivers and out into the ocean; the Wanderer found such a trash line floating in front of Samarra about 6 miles east of Garza. With this much shade, any angler knows that green gold is hiding in the shadows.

Great work by the Wanderer in keeping her craft sharp during the offseason.
