I put together a small movie with some of the sailfish stills and Gopro and Nikon D300 movie clips. It was really hard to try and do everything and not fall over board at the same time. Sorry if the video is a bit shaky, the sea’s where not calm!
Over the Past 2 days I have been out on the water with a group that has caught a total of 13 Sailfish!
AMAZING! They are so beautiful and all where successfully put back into the waters that they came from. Here are a selection of shots from the catches. My Underwater housing with my Nikon D3 got all of the underwater shots and my Nikon D700 and borrowed Nikon D300 got the rest of the action above water.
I have missed a couple days of posting on here, so I will start with the most recent and work backwards!
Yesterday I went out deep sea fishing with a guest Bruce and his two kids, Amy and Reese. Bruce, who is an big fly fisherman decided to do a little trolling with his fly rod. He managed to attract a Dorado (aka Mahi Mahi) to the side of the boat. I had my Nikon D3 in my underwater housing with a 20mm 2.8 and Bruces daughter Amy grabbed the Gopro on a pole and together we managed to get some amazing footage and stills of the fish bitting the fly.
Amy did all the work on the Gopro and I managed to piece together a little movie again!
Hope you enjoy!
Also, Reese Caught a Bull Shark. I got one shot of it breaching in the air and then handed my camera to Bruce to get a shot under water…I didn’t feel brave enough!
Today Jesse caught a beautiful Sail fish out in the deep water! Sail fish don’t really jump very much, but this one came out a couple of times and I managed to snap a couple of pictures.
Donar, our Mate on the boat, grabbed it and took the hook out and made a successful release!
Isla Del Ray, Las Parlas, Panama
I went for a walk onto the WCFC property on the Island Isla Del rey, in Las Parlas. We get dropped off on the beach by a panga and then walk through the jungle to the other side to see the magnificent beach. Here are some pics of the walks!
