John Hicks and his posse had a huge day on the Wanderer with big catches of Dorado and Yellowfin Tuna punctuated by a swarm of Sailfish releases.

First Mate Alex stocked the baitwell with live mullet and Captain William set course for Sailfish City.

In total this group tallied four big Sailfish releases.

A welcome suprise to our fishery recently are the ever-growing Yellowfin Tuna. Usually the Yella Fellas are scarce until March, but this year they are early.

Excellent day of multi-species action for the John Hicks group.

One day after catching a nice Dorado on board the Adventurer client John Hicks and his lady stepped up to the Super panga and mimicked their performance with another healthy Dorado.

Things really took off for John the next day, when the Explorer encountered a mean 110lbs. Sailfish about 7 miles from shore. It took every ounce of available strength to bring this monster alongside for the release. Great work by Captain David on the wheel and Mate Carlos on the safe release.

John continued the strong fishing by dropping another 20lbs. Dorado and a 25lbs. Yellowfin Tuna into the icebox.
