All-Inclusive Fishing in Guatemala


This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending November 26th 2007 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company operating out of the new Pez Vela Marina .

Fishing over the last few weeks has been steady, with raises in the high double digits the norm. – a slight dip over the full moon last week, but numbers of releases for both Sailfish and Marlin have been strong since.
The bite has been especially vigorous first thing in the morning, and this has been made easier and more convenient for anglers with the blue water moving in as close in as only 10 miles.

We welcomed the Schafferius party to our new villa this week – complete with swim-up bar, satellite TV and amenities…….all the comforts of home without the washing up !

More importantly, we welcomed them aboard the Joint Venture for their first days fishing, and put lines in at 9 miles from the dock. The action came thick and fast, with Sailfish aggressively pursuing the teasers. They raised 20 Sailfish on their first day out – with 15 bites and 8 releases. Also in the mix, and brought to the boat was a 350lb Blue Marlin and some good sized Dorado for the table.

The season has now started in earnest, and the early indicators are good for plenty of billfish this year – hopefully the marlin will hang around as well !

Correction : I reported last week of “Grand Slams” being released (Blue/Black marlin and Sailfish). I regret that this was in error and due to my poor translation (literally) of the Captain’s report. In fact they reported several “Slams” of Blue Marlin, Sailfish and Dorado. Apologies for that – we like to be accurate in our reporting.

A strong Marlin bite, good numbers of Sailfish raise and caught – and even food for the table……….things are definitely looking up 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 1-877-763-0851or send us an email (below) to check on dates – we would look forward to welcoming you to some of the finest fishing anywhere.
