I had multiple groups fishing these days. One group on the famous Capt Hook with Capt Eddie on a 42 foot willis, and myself Capt Chris Starrs ran a local boat called ''La Joya'' 30 foot rampage for the once a month national tournament circuit.

Capt Hook- Capt Eddie-3 Day Total
3 days caught 110 Sails and Two Blue Marlin 3 Dorados

La Joya-Capt Chris Starrs- 2 Day Total
Day 1 inshore:
Day 2 offshore:
68-56-25 (SANCOHOs! aka my group sucked)
Total 2 Days: 40 sails 2 big dorado

The last day we were late getting to ''the spot'', but it was firing. I rarely use that term. Firing is literary a term used when triples and quads keep coming even while the boat is parked. No eating, no drinking, just dropping baits back and reeling fast! At one point while backing down to get a release anglers were catching sailfish in-reverse as they drag their baits back words! Now that is hot! More to come!!!!  2015-16 best fishing I have seen in a long time.  March and April still have dates!

In house fly tournament results- January 14th, 2016

PIRAGUA 104 65 33
SAILS PITCH 92 66 23 1 Marlin Bait

Grand Total of releases in 3 days: 78 Sailfish on fly 1 Blue Marlin on bait. All 15-20 miles.

Lots of blue marlin inshore just 8 miles in the ''shallow'' water.  Hot boats are seeing as many 4 shots a day on bait of blues as big as 500 lbs!, as well as 30-40 bites on the bait.  While the fly fishermen are getting average of 14 shots.  Fishing has been pretty constant this entire year in Guatemala, more reports to come as Janaury heats up.

Smooth ocean, lots of fish!  Well its a bit of a run, but man what a pay out!!  To the west 40 miles off the ''ledge'', has a great amount of movement, whales, birds & dolphins of all types.  Each day we have seen multiple stripe marlin bites, with 2 of 3 releases on stripe marlin, and 20 sailfish bites the final day of our last charter today on the 18th.
The past two days of fishing we have gotten over 4 stripe marlin raises, and over 40 shots at sailfish, with 4 nice yellow fin tuna for lunch and 1 blue shot a day.

Monday we are back at it.  We were happy to show our amigos from Australia a great couple of days on the water.  Tight Lines, Capt Chris Starrs

November 26th, 2015 Fishing Report- Iztapa Guatemala (short day)

Its rare that we get to fish on Thanks Giving, strictly family day. However, this year my father made his way down to Guatemala to visit family, and we made an exception for ''Papa John''.
Just 12 miles in front of the port we put em out, and weren't dragging for more than 20 minutes when a nice blue marlin in the 300 lb range crashed the short teaser. Since the mate was running the boat, and my old man and I were fishing, I pitch the aggressive marlin the mackerel 50lb, and got it hooked up. Just a 15 minute fight, and we got the ''quickie'', AND got a TAG!
We continued to see 8 more sails in the same area, 7 bit, and released 4, as well as we saw two more BIG blues that wouldn't eat. Only 3 hrs at 12 miles and we still made it back to see the Lions win against Philly. Fishing offshore was just as good as many boats finished up the day with 25-30 bites each, and marlin here and there. The blues actually seem to be on the inshore drop at just 15 miles. Flat calm out there. Monday we start back up. Incredible fishing this year, can't describe it.
