Thompson Rains come to Nosara as a result of winning the Ancient City Kingfish Tournament raffle last Spring. The whole family is in town and they have already had some excellent action around Garza.

On February 20 they joined Captain William on the Wanderer for an offshore billfish hunt and we are happy to report that they released two amazing Pacific Sailfish.

The first came around 12:30pm and hit the spread very aggressively. A quick fight followed and this beauty was set free after just 20 minutes.

The second sail blasted through he blue water around 2:30 and was released at 3pm. Fantastic day by some Florida anglers who know how to handle the blue water beasties. Excellent work by Captain William, First Mate Alex and the whole Rains group.

You gotta wake up pretty early in the morning to call yourself the pound-for-pound champ, so the Explorer had her lines out at the crack of the sun this morning. Captain David kept client Thompson Rains and his group on the fish and the rods were bent all morning.

This was Captain David’s first of two trips for the day; great job on the early morning bite by the Explorer.
