Sailfish raises in Guatemala


This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending November 3rd 2007 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company operating out of the new Pez Vela Marina .

The calm seas and clear skies belie the frenetic pace of  activity around the docks and yards of the Marina Pez Vela. The bulk of the preparation for the peak of the season has been  completed – now we are just adding the finishing touches.   Polish on the gelcoat, a final sand of the hull …. a bit of spit  and a bit of polish. We are ready, and by all accounts the billfish are ready as well.   

The boats are still doing more prospecting than usual to find good concentrations of fish, with raises ranging from low single digits to 20+ within a day of each other. The consistency continues to improve week by week however.   

We were pleased to welcome Snr. Gelido and his group all the  way from Argentina this week. The reputation of the quality sailfishing  off the Pacific Coast of Guatemala has obviously now extended  about as far South as it can get !

There has been a strong current of deep blue water consistently at 40 miles from dock which has become the automatic lines in point for the fleet – and to start fanning out from there. The Captains have reported that the fish seem to be following the bluewater further inshore, which we hope will lead to greater concentrations closer    in over the next few weeks………….but still…………..20+ raises  in November seems like a good start to the season, along with a few marlin raised as well - maybe a good  marlin season to come as well !   

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.
