Fishing Moon Phase in Guatemala


This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending February 3rd 2008 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company operating out of the new Pez Vela Marina .

So far so good – this has been a great season to date, with a strong and steady bite since early November. It’s always great to welcome back old friends to Guatemala, and to be able to reward their loyalty and perseverance with outstanding fishing. The rich Pacific waters off the coast of Guatemala are regularly mentioned in fishing magazines and TV shows as consistently some of the most productive billfishing in the world - witness the February 2008 issue of Sportfishing magazine (right) that discusses the strength of the fishery (and The Great Sailfishing Company in particular !). They also talk about Bluefin off the Outer Banks….we can only manage Yellowfin in good numbers as well as Sailfishing and Marlin……….but the weather is a lot more clement.

The boats have been putting lines in at only 22 miles or so – or as soon as they crew spot billfish either breaching or lounging on the surface. There is plenty of bait in the water, so it is really a question of sighting the fish to set lines in the most productive areas. We have been averaging >20 raises of billfish almost every day, with regular catches of Blue/Black Marlin included in the mix as well as good sized dolphin.

There seems to have been little regard or effect from different moon phases this season – perhaps an indicator of the sheer volume of billfish that are hanging all along the blue water line.

A strong Marlin bite, 20+ raises per day being the norm at the moment – and even food for the table……….things are fishing well in the rich fishing grounds off the Pacific Coast of Guatemala.

The boats are ready, the crews are primed – come down and enjoy the buildup to what we hope is going to be a great season fishing with The Great Sailfishing Company We still have availability for some of the popular dates, so don’t wait, give us a call at 1-877-763-0851        1-877-763-0851       or send us an email (below) to check on dates – we would look forward to welcoming you to some of the finest fishing anywhere.
