As expected the Marlin bite is heating up just 20 miles off shore right now. Many captains like December for a good mix of both marlin and sails, but March to early June for me is my greatest combo success rate for both sails and Marlin. Black and Blue Marlin between 200 to 500 lbs have shown up in just about every ones spread while trolling for sails in the past weeks. A few lucky fly fishermen have even one release to brag about. Captaining on my boat I was able this past Sunday to release just 6 sails and 1 marlin in the 200 to 250 lb range. Also we brought home 1 dorado in the 25 lb range. Dorado have be absent this dry season, and I will be happy to get back into them when late June comes around (rainy months). Great fun on a small fly reel and tackle. Let us know if you made it out and how you did if you were in Guatemala. Also give us a shout if you're interested in coming down for the Marlin bite as the rainy months approach. Lodging rates are much cheaper, and the action is just as good.
