Kenny Strickler and Charley Smith posted an excellent day of Sailfish releases on March 9 with Captain Alex on the Harvester.

Seems like after each release the mega panga had another fired-up Sailfish in the spread ready for action.

The season is getting good when you see big numbers of Sailfish, especially when they are this energetic.

Great work by Mate Wilson to ensure the safe release of these monsters.

FishingNosara Hall of Famers Kenny Strickler and Morgan Trible returned to Nosara for a New Year’s celebration of fun times and big fish.

This Double Sailfish release may be the coolest picture of the year so far:


There was lots of Sailfish action throughout the week:

Plus they scored an inshore gem…this is one fine Rooster Fish:

Morgan and Kenny brought the year to a close with a monster performance on December 31, highlighted by the FishingNosara team’s first-ever Triple Sailfish Release!

We’ve caught up to four Sailfish simultaneously in the past, but never had enough hands on deck to safely handle more than two at a time for pictures.

First Mate Alex has been training the new Mates as he waits until the Harvester arrives, and fate would have it that he was on hand to coordinate this amazing photo.

These Virginia-based anglers scored a few more Sails to round out the trip later in the day.

Morgan Trible and Kenny Strickler have built reputations as the most consistent anglers in the area. Hailing from the hard fishing state of Virginia, these guys seem to post Hall of Fame-caliber results every time they hit the water.

On this, their third trip of the week, the boys had a pair of early afternoon Sailfish attack the spread but spit the hooks. They deployed this special live bait spread to coax up another billfish:

The ladies were back in the boat for only 5 minutes before a mack-daddy Sailfish came for a visit. The fight was thrilling but quick as these Virginian’s added another great Sailfish release to their scorecard.

I love the ‘everyone look somewhere besides the camera’ pose here.

Also check out the blue FishingNosara coozie on the right; we have been out of stock of blue coozies for quite some time now, which means one of the guys brought it along from home. Hold on to that coozie, bud…it’s good luck!

With First Mate Alex’s careful assistance, Morgan released this Sailfish clean and ready to fight another day.

Hall of Famers Morgan Trible and Kenny Strickler have struck again! They booked the Wanderer on April 10 and released 2 two Blue Marlins (200lbs. and 400lbs.) plus added two Dorados (13lbs.-30lbs.)

Looks like Kenny just can’t let go of this great fish. Finally Morgan and First Mate Alex pried her away and released her safe as always.
