2006/07 Guatemala Fishing Report July 30th 2006



Calm seas in Guatemala


This fishing report is for the week ending 07-30-06 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company which operates out of the new Pez Vela Marina,Guatemala.The fishing grounds for this past week ranged from 35 miles to as far as 50 miles. Seas started out fairly high ranging between 3 to 4ft at the start of the week caused by several storms that hit the coast. However, clam seas were enjoyed by the weekend.This week skies ranged from cloudy/rain at the beginning of the week with overcast/cloudy days at weeks end. Most nights saw heavy downpours. Most days started with light breezes in the mornings which picked up in the afternoons.

This week saw fair results with boats reporting raises in the low to mid teens with releases in the single digits. The good news is that there were lots of Dorado and yellowfin tuna to be had. At the start of the week few sportfishing boats ventured out,with most of the bill-fishing on the weekend. Our boat the Joint Venture hosted a group along with our partners Jim Phillips and Kevin Styles. They reported 14 raises on
Sunday which resulted in 2 sails released on the fly and two on conventionial along with 8 yellowfin tuna. Kevin explained that they could have caught a lot more tuna but stopped after 8 in search of the sails. On Saturday the Stragos came upon some floating structures which resulted in boating 75 Dorado.
