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,

TOO BUSY FISHING TO REPORT! 

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.

Lots of sailfish caught on the fly these days.  All VERY aggressive fish.  As well as a two day break for bait fishing in which we released 60 sailfish in a local tournament.

Sailfish Caught on the FLY in 5 days: 52 (lots of bites)

Our biggest highlight was a pulled hook on the unicorn of the seas, an ALBINO sailfish.  Pictures to post soon.

Bite is just 19-25 miles.

Back to El Salvador for the 3rd year in a row to compete for the 22nd annual bill fish tournament.  Some of the best competition we have seen in many years.

The best part about this experience is our team was past clients who have been fishing with us in Guatemala before, and we felt it was time for them to see what they had!!  We were just a few fish from getting into the top 5!  Better luck next year.  Great fishing in general, one highlight was a 48 lb bull mahi which got us an award in the fun fish division.  Great tourney as usual.

December 1st, 2016 Fishing Report- 30,30 East, 20-15-8 Sailfish, 3-2-2 Blue Malrin (300 lbs, 400lbs, missed a 450 lber)

What a day! The Sails Call kicked off December with 3 blue marlin bites!  We had some guys looking for a marlin and thats just what they got.  Only boat flying flags that day.

Very good blue water pushing in these days, nice 83-85 degree range.
