The Explorer perfomed brilliantly inshore with Rob Coxey and David Borries of Jacksonville, FL. The highlight was this Rooster Fish release by David; likely the biggest Rooster Fish of the season.

Rob also scored a nice Rooster Fish release:

They also nabbed an excellent Cubera Snapper.

Amazing work by Captain Fico and the super panga!

Justin Haliday and Misty Dingel marked Rooster Fish release off of their ‘to-do’ list on August 19, thanks to the efforts of Captain David on the Adventurer.

Check out what Heidi posted to Facebook:

This has by far been the best time we have had in the country so far and not just bc of the fishing. The area, the views, the biodiversity, the people omg EVERYONE has literally been frikkin amazing that we run into, this IS Costa Rica and the Tico way of life here, the Pura Vida!!! We both feel safe and πŸ’― at home here and is the top of the list for coming back to. There’s just too much to capture that pictures would NOT do it justice or even begin to capture the Pura Vida here πŸ₯° Here’s a few tidbits from the fishing. We have sooo much footage and pics to upload and fish through πŸ˜‚ no pun intended.

Billy Meeks and Jerome McKown were back for more on the 9th. Let’s hear Jerome’s account:

Another great day of fishing in Nosara, Costa Rica.

My good fishing partner and friend Billy Meeks had an amazing day on the water with Fishing Nosara on the Harvester with Capt. Alex.

We started the day with Billy catching and landing a 7’ sailfish.  We actually saw him strike and eat the surface bait.  Pretty cool for sure.

Then I was able to catch another rooster fish.

Good fight beautiful colors on this fish. 

Later this afternoon Billy was able to catch and land another Rooster Fish.  His fish was definitely bigger than mine; 48lbs

Within 10 minutes from Billy’s release I popped another rooster fish.  It was a monster.  The granddaddy of the rooster fish.  We able to see him briefly before he broke the hook.  Capt. Alex estimated to be nearly 70 lbs.😑

All I could think of was the movie…Grumpy Old Men and how they were always trying catch.. β€œCatfish Hunter”…

So another day is in the books.  We were able to photo and release these magnificent fighters for another day.

We laughed hard, fished hard, and now we have wonderful memories of today’s events which will last forever in our mind and heart…

We not fishing tomorrow, but come Wednesday let me just say.. Catfish hunter rooster we are coming for you.. Game on.  Lol.   Wish us luck on our final day fishing this paradise called Nosara, Costa Rica..πŸŽ£πŸ¦΅πŸΎπŸ€™

Tight lines,

Capt. J

Texas angling legends Jerome McKown and Billy Meeks have joined forces to wallop the fish of the general Nosara area.

On August 7, Captain Alex kept the Harvester near-shore, and Jerome scored this solid Rooster fish release.

Not to be outdone, Billy Meeks bested one of the biggest Red Groupers we have ever seen. This leviathan’s strength was sufficient to snap one of our spinning rods in half, but Billy didn’t give up the fight.

Great work by the mega panga and these Lone Star anglers!
