MORE blue marlin in Guatemala


This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending February 26th 2007 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company operating out of the new Pez Vela Marina .

This is seeming to be a confusing season; we had a great bite in late December and early January….and then it went cold. Both in the sense of the veracity of the bite, and also for the relative water temperature. It appeared like we had recovered, and the fishing was coming back to the “norm” of catches in the teens for February………… but it has stayed stubbornly in the single digits for most days.

Up and down the Pacific coast, we hear similar reports of less aggressive and less numerous bites than expected for this time of year……..but we live in hope and anticipation of it really turning on.

On the positive side, we are seeing and catching a good run of Blue Marlin : The Carr party had 2 good sized Blues in the spread on their penultimate days fishing. Unfortunately the fish refused the fresh Bonita belly baits, and despite being surround by tasty teasers of all flavors, and just wouldn’t bite seriously. I’m happy to report however that that was resolved on theirfinal day as they hooked up and brought to the boat a 500lb Blue Marlin……a good trophy to accompany the 7 sailfish caught that day. Congratulations !
