The last two groups of May turned out to be great.  Last week a group of high school grads had a peak day of 25 sails in the spread, while releasing 1 for 2 blue marlin and lots of mahi throughout the day.

Finally the last few days we wrapped up a group of fly anglers (both first time for billfish), which were also successful on both their first blue marlin on conventional, as well as several sailfish on the fly.

June we are back at it again on the fly as we get ready to go after more marlin and sailfish.

3 days fishing bait after a tough week of fly fishing.  The push of cooler water from Mexico has brought some of the best stripe marlin fishing we have ever seen!  Boats averaging 3 shots a day of stripe marlin in the mix of 30 sailfish raises, and several grand slams being caught as we are to get into Feb 2017.  Yesterday the Sails Pitch released a stripe marlin on the spinning gear while fly fishing, and the Sails Call went 2 for 3 on stripe marlin while getting 20 sailfish bites!  We can get used to this!  The day before, sails call saw 5 stripe marlin!

This last weekend, over 30 stripe marlin were caught in a single day with combined lodge results.  Guatemala contiunes to surprise us.

Tight Lines,

Sorry folks, January is crazy, with plenty of fish being caught both conventionaly & FLY.  Since the first week of January we have had several groups seeing as many as 100 shots in a single day, to steady averages of 30 shots of day throughout the month (marlin raised everyday).  Australians, father & sons trip, a great couple from Ohio and 9 Chileans from South America.  About to fire up again this Satuday on the fly, lots of fishing!

We finished yesterday with a group of 9 fly anglers from Chile, all trying to catch their first sailfish on the fly.  Everyone was successful, and just 5 miles was the bite on a calm ocean.  The marlin stole the show all week, with one lucky angler releasing a nice 300 lb blue on the fly!

Every group has already rebooked for next season.

For more info on reports, follow us on facebook as the Captains can get live reports as we tie off to the dock.
