Team Tedrick scored again on March 18 with the mega panga Harvester keeping the decks bloody and the fishbox full.
They also released a nice Sailfish.
Marine nature was on full display; check out this close encounter with a bottlenose dolphin.
They also hooked up this Shark, and cut the line before it took a finger!
Javier grabbed another great Snook from the River Mouth on April 30.
Dario also nagged a small Shark.
The Explorer posted a very contradictory scorecard on January 16; on one hand they caught two memorable fish but on the other hand both had to be released.
We’ve put a self-imposed restriction on these big Cubera Snappers. When they are this big we chose to release them for the health of the fishery.
Big or small, we want nothing to do with this Shark:
Still a great day of rod-bending fun on the barroom brawler Explorer.
Our good friend Eddie Showalter returned to Costa Rica for another foray into the blue water, and brought his friends Mike Neeland and Laura Lanoue.
Laura was thrilled to see that one of her prior conquests is immortalized in our Guiones Beach Office.
She repeated her Sailfish success on the Discoverer with this outstanding release:
She also added a fine Rooster fish release, and got an up close look at a mean old shark.
Safely returned to the water by Mate Juan Carlos, this pez gallo is quite a fish-catching accomplishment.
The Explorer continues to shine as an inshore warrior, and on a recent trip she ran the gamut with a nice Rooster Fish release backed-up by some football-sized Yellowfin Tunas.
They also hooked up Jaws’ little brother, and Captain Carlos smartly cut the line to save his fingers.
All in a day’s work for the 26-foot barroom brawler.
