After several trips on the Wanderer, Rick Egan made his final lap around our fishery on August 5 hoping to cap off his trip that has already included great bottom fishing action and numerous Sailfish releases.

He chose Captain David and the Explorer for a morning half-day and they got off to a quick start with three Bonitas and a two Jacks (20lbs. and 35lbs.)

Mr. Egan also lost a big Roosterfish on a topwater Williamson Jet Popper close to the boat. It was a monster and it hurt Rick’s heart to not get him into the boat for the picture, but even though he still had a great time. Plus they got a smaller Roosterfish:

After a nice warm-up trip on the Explorer on August 1, Rick Egan booked the most famous Wanderer for a run offshore after the big sailfish. Captain David signed on to assist First Mate Alex on the big blue beauty and Captain William took her out to the same spot the Explorer worked over with the Jake Davies group.

Clearly this combination of world class anglers, crew, equipment and advance recon of the bite spelled disaster for the hungry Sailfish as the Wanderer and Rick Egan released 5 Sailfish, including the legendary Double Header Release.

Alex and David worked hard all day to ensure safe releases for the fishes and fun times for the clients.

Great work by Captain William, First Mate Alex, David, and the whole Egan group to guarantee the safety of these majestic creatures. All 5 fish were released alive and healthy…and ready to be caught again!

On August 1 Jacksonville angler Rick Egan enlisted Captain David and the Explorer for a full day of fishing. Like all of our North Florida friends, Mr. Egan had a productive day with some nice filets for the table.

The morning was a bit slow, but by mid-day Rick had a nice Yellowfin Tuna in the box and a schoolie-sized Dorado. Rick was all smiles after this trip.
