Cindy Garrison in Guatemala


This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending June 24th 2007 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company operating out of the new Pez Vela Marina .

We were pleased to welcome Michael Brennan and his two sons to Guatemala this past week to experience The Great Sailfishing adventure. They were inspired to fish with us after watching Cindy Garrison’ s ESPN escapades on the Joint Venture.

The weather and seas were calm as they set off on their first morning with Capt. Marvin. We hadn’t ventured out of dock for a couple of days, so were a little uncertain about the prospects, but with good blue water starting at 22 miles the crew was optimistic.

Shortly after lines in the first Sailfish was in the spreads. This was a good sign – the fish was lit up and aggressively chasing the teasers, first on the port side, then rapidly switching to the starboard. As soon as the freshly rigged ballyhoo was in the water however, it quickly switched attention and pursued the meal with venom. An easy hookup and release followed in short order.

While this had been going on, Capt. Marvin had been surveying the surrounding water, and had observed Sails free jumping a short distance away. He kicked the Reel Diver into gear and started to troll the mile or so to the last jumper he had seen. Didn’t get far however before two hungry sails started following the short line – and more action ensued.

This continued almost non-stop – eventually raising over 40 Sailfish for the day, bringing over half to the boat and release. Could this continue ?

The second day proved that it could – even in the “low season”. A similar catch rate for Sailfish, many Dorado and many more smiles occurred the second day out – the final day was capped off with two Blue Marlin.

To quote the crew : “There are Sails all over the place !”

Come and experience The Great Sailfishing adventure for yourself – try our “Off Season” !!! We even have a SPECIAL running to make it easy for you !
