2007/08 Guatemala Fishing Report March 15th 2008

sailfish on fly


Opportunity Knocks!


This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending March 15th 2008 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company operating out of the new Pez Vela Marina .

Opportunity knocks ! This has been a remarkable season – consistently
strong numbers of fished raised almost every day, regardless
of the moon phase, time of day or current. The only thing that
has really mattered has been finding good blue water.

This past week we have seen the deep blue water move out further
to between 30 and 40 miles – but once we have the baits in the
water, the fish have been there.

The boats have been raising 20-40 sailfish each day – giving plenty
of shots both on conventional tackle and the fly. With so many fish
chasing the teasers, there is inevitably competition between them to
get to the bait – and this has resulted in some spectacular scenes
of pods of billfish slashing at the ballyhoo being trolled close to
the transom.

By the time they have good sight and timing on the teaser, and it
has been yanked away – the sails are fully lit up and ready to
pounce on the fly as presented to the side and just behind their
last attack.

This is a great time to come down and hone those flyfishing skills
to catch 100lb+ pelagics on a 13wt.

There have been fewer Marlin showing, but they are still around
and every trip has the potential to deliver not only large numbers
of sailfish, but a Blue Marlin as well !……….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 rest of the season fishing with The Great Sailfishing Company
