Kathy and James Preis continued their strong offshore performance with a second trip on the flagship Wanderer with Captain William and First Mate Alex (freshly back from his weekend in San Jose). The fish clearly missed Alex while he was gone cause they swarmed the boat like moths to a flame.

Kathy nailed this excellent Dorado around 10am, then the stage was set for a massive Sailfish battle that would see three successful releases out of five hookups.

You think Alex is pumped to be back on the water? Check out the “Superman Pose” on this release shot.

Another great trip from the best boat in Garza, the Wanderer!

Kathy Preis found our about FishingNosara from our appearance at the St. Petersburg Power and Sail Boat Show back in December, and she brought her husband down to Costa to take a crack at the blue water beasties.
Things got off to a fast start with a MASSIVE Wahoo on the line; this monster is conservatively estimated to weigh 35lbs. but I think it is fair to say that this fish is closer to 50lbs. Excellent eating fish, too!

The action peaked around noon when a pair of Sailfish torpedoed the baits and a stage was set for the legendary Double Sailfish release.

As always Captain William’s superb boat handling skills were on full display as he maneuvered the Wanderer in a way to keep both anglers in a position of strength. Mate Carlos (of the Explorer and Adventurer) ran the show from the cockpit and saw to the safe release of both beautiful Sailfish.
