The VenHousen family finished their four days of fishing on the Wanderer with their best day yet. Yesterday Grandpa got a bucket-liss-caliber Sailfish, so it was fitting that the youngest VenHousen match her Papi with a great Sail of her own!
Our Captains and crews are all family men who are very good with children. They make sure that every age has a fun, safe and memorable trip. Once this Sailfish took off the family pitched in and brought her alongside for a safe release.
Once she was swimming free, it was Mommy and Daddy’s turn for some bill collecting.
Check out the his and hers Sailfish releases to cap off a great week in trip Costa Rica:
John VenHousen brought his wife and daughter down to Nosara from Wisconsin and booked the family-friendly Wanderer for several 6.5 hour fishing trips.
Captain William took the Wanderer 20 miles off-shore to find good clean blue water. First Mate Alex deployed the spread at 11:30am and at just past noon the first big monster came calling. Mrs. VenHousen seized the reel and brought this beauty all the way in for a clean release.
At 1:30 another acrobatic Sailfish attacked and put on an amazing show for the VenHousens. Look at this girl fly!
John won back line from the beast and added the second Sailfish release of the day. Great start to a full week of fishing for these Wisconsin anglers.
