Summer Fishing in Guatemala


This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending June 17th 2007 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company operating out of the new Pez Vela Marina . The great thing about summer fishing in the bait rich watersoff the Pacific Coast of Guatemala is that just about anything can happen, and frequently does.

The size of the fleet fishing each day is diminished, and so it can be more difficult to find the concentrations of Sailfish that are a hallmark of the region during the peak of the season – but they are there.

We welcomed the Lunquist party this past week and both the Joint Venture and the Reel Diver went out looking for the bite. The Captains worked together to find good blue water and steady fishing.

Lines in at 30 miles produced a steady pick of good sized Dorado which provided fantatstic action on light tackle. The rains in the previous week had washed out debris from the land, and this provided good targets to aim for while still continuing the search for billfish.

Each boat came in with a release record of 2 Sailfish for the day – but everyone was happy as there had been continuous action with Bonita and some good sized Dorado. The Joint Venture brought 24 Dorado to the boat and the Reel Diver had 12 – so plenty of good fish for dinner.

As the summer progresses, we anticipate more “Bull” dolphin as the bait becomes more concentrated under some of the large logs that float out to the fishing grounds from the estuaries – so come an enjoy some great fishing as well as a fine dinner, with billfish action mixed in !
