2007/08 Guatemala Fishing Report January 28th 2007

Pez Vela Marina in Guatemala


This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending January 28th
2007 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company operating out of the new Pez Vela Marina .

It has been unusually slow fishing for Guatemala over the last couple of weeks – the common wisdom among the wizened captains has been that the water temperatures at the colour changes have either not had enough gradient, or the temperatures themselves have been a couple of degrees below normal.

This had resulted in bait not concentrating, and hence the Predators find it harder to find food, and they themselves become harder to find.

The weather has improved significantly this last week – and it certainly seems to have positively effected the fishing. The bluewater has come in to about 30 miles from the dock, we are seeing regular billfish raises in the low teens per day – along with catches of good size (20-25lb)
yellowfin tuna and dorado.

Our catch of the week has to go to the Wuori party, who are demonstrating their skill at hooking up to the sails – but somewhat unusually for Guatemala also managed to hook up to a feisty striped marlin this week – and saw another in the spread.

Our Favorite Fishing Quote for the week :
