Matthew Jordan finished his run of awesome trips on November 13. Big Dorados filled up the scorecard during the bulk of the trip.
In the afternoon they moved inshore and scored a monster Amberjack.
“Awesome charter operation- The boat was rock solid, captain and mate were very knowledgeable, and the gear was top notch,” wrote Matthew in his review. “The lunches served on the boat were fantastic. The captain wasn’t afraid to make long runs to find the fish. We tore up mahi, tuna and AJ’s. Epic 3 days of fishing on the Wanderer!”
The big battleship Discoverer scored a few nice Yellowfin Tunas on the 16th with angler John Barry.
Here’s what John had to say after the trip: “We had a fantastic trip these guys are true professionals – I brought my mom along with me who did not want to fish and they communicated with me before and after the trip to ensure she had a good time. She had a fanatics time, even ended up in the battle chair fighting a tuna I bet I could even get her to get out again. We caught a bunch of Yellowfin + fought a sailfish we just lost.”
It was pouring rain this morning when we got up and it certainly looked like today was going to be a total washout. After a 2 hour delay, the rain stopped and it didn’t rain on us again for the rest of the day.
Turned out to be an outstanding day with Captain Antonio and Mate Fito!!!! We got 5 yellowfin tuna from 30 to 35 pounds. Jim got the biggest. I got 3, two of which were at least 30. Those were a lot of fun.
And, check out the size of the head of this sailfish that Jim caught. Captain estimated it was 150 pounds. I caught one about a 120.. They were the biggest sailfish either of us have ever caught. And they both gave us a very good fight!
We got video of everything!! We are spent to say the least!! What an amazing day that started out looking like it was going to be a washout!!!!
We kept 2 bags of tuna for dinner, gave one bag to the mommy who lives in the house on the beach and the rest went to Antonio and Fito and their families.. Again, what an amazing day what an amazing day this turned out to be!!!!!
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.

We both feel safe and 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 Here’s a few tidbits from the fishing. We have sooo much footage and pics to upload and fish through 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.. “Catfish 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..🎣🦵🏾🤙
