William and Jessica Bronner followed up their incredibly large Dorado with another trip offshore with Captain William and the flagship Wanderer. This father-daughter fishing team notched the scorecard with two excellent Sailfish releases

Mr. Bronner was first up on the reel at 1pm when this MASSIVE Pacific Sailfish came tearing through the spread. Captain William kept the angler in an advantageous position while First Mate Alex coordinated the action from the cockpit. They kept the fight short and sweet, releasing this beauty in under 30 minutes.

An hour later Jessica Bronner flexed her fishing muscles on a Pacific Sailfish of her own. Jessica hails from the hard-fishing town of Del Rey Beach, FL and she didn’t need any explanation on how to bring in big-time billfish.

“Jessica is one of the best female anglers I’ve ever seen,” commented First Mate Alex, who has been a professional boatman for over 14 years. “She fought this fish like a pro and even assisted on the bill and release. Jessica Bronner can fish with me anytime!”

Once again the Wanderer delivered a fantastic trip for a fantastic fishing family. Great work by Captain William, First Mate Alex, and the Bronners.

Our new friends William Bronner and his daughter Jessica are in Nosara for a week of relaxing, travelling, and of course some big time fishing! They were on the Wanderer with Captain William and pulled a MASSIVE Dorado estimated to weigh well over 60lbs.

Now that’s a heck of fish, but the way they caught it really stands out as something unique. Notice anything weird about this picture?

Look closer:

This monster moved through the spread so quickly that he gulped down a second rigged ballyhoo before the hook was set from the first bait! With twice the leverage and the hooksets this beast came home with little effort.

Very unique accomplishment for the Bronners who have more fishing scheduled this week. Stay tuned!
