As we gear up for next season I have lots good news to be excited about.  Currently this year we are experiencing a great yellow fin tuna bite and many boats have raised a good amount of Blue Marlin.  Signs of an amazing season to follow?  Nothing like a healthy ecosystem to get the bill fish heading our way.  Also this off season we got a massive ballyhoo catch that will assure fresh bait for all.  If you were a smart lodge owner like myself you already have the freezer stuffed full of fresh bait for the November kick off.
Lastly I finally renewed my Captain license as well as upgraded my level of expertise, I hope to show you a thing or two these months.  Tight Lines!

The bite and variety are both outstanding now.  A characteristic of the rainy months is the define current line, close to shore, which marks the greener water to the intense blue water.  This cut holds lots of floating debris which in return holds lots of life such as dorado, jacks, wahoo, and even marlin lurking.  Just a few miles into the blue water at just 15 miles total is where we have been seeing good sail fish numbers.
Last weekend we raised 8 sail fish, released 6, caught 8 dorado, and one wahoo around 8 lbs that later went on the grill.  For a half day charter that was focused on the dorado action we did alright.

Now Guatemalan winter as we call it or USA summer is prime Marlin fishing.  With so much bait, tuna, and dorado packed into Guatemala these months the ''big girls'' follow.  Many boats are changing gear out for more heavier stuff, and you can bet that I will bring service my 50's as well.  Stay tuned!

Hola Anglers

Don't let anyone fool you, the sail fishing in Guatemala has been off, shy of non existent for a good couple of months.  And this time is my favorite for the marlin bite and solid sail numbers.  Finally this week after two weeks of the bluest water any of us have seen all year things began to change for the better.  I recently hosted some NFL players for a TV show called Gridiron Outdoors, which airs this winter.  While the first day was uneventful the days to follow would make for a great show.
Second day we had a Blue marlin in the set, at least 7 sails raised and a pair of 12 lb dorado for lunch.
Third day we had three marlin up and 1 blue released in the 300 lb range, 2 sails released, 5 hooks pulled on the fly.
Last day, the sail fish bite was getting better, 7 up again, 1 release on the fly.  Tough, hot, and long days recently, but its better than a great day in the office.
The blue marlin bite is something to pay attention to, the averages are way up and for the summer months I am already changing my gear for heavier marlin rigs.  We usually have a rather open schedule but look us up for a long weekend fishing trip to get into this blue marlin action and yellow fin action.

Tight lines.

We have just locked down the out door channels ''familiar waters'' weekly TV show with EX NFL QB Mike Pawlawski!  May 9th through the 14th we will be fishing with both Mike and special NFL pro bowl guest Alex Mack (center for the Cleveland Browns).  For 4 days we will be focusing on sail fish on the fly, as well as marlin if we're lucky, and of course dorado on the fly.  Alex Mack will be a first timer on the fly, while seasoned vet Mike Pawlawski looks to cross off sail fish on his life list of fly species.  Both will learn the practices of bait and switch, which Guatemala has made famous over the years and perfected.  We will be posting show time slots for this 2 part series once we have wrapped up this group.  Tight lines!

Hola Anglers!

Well the blue water is there.  The temperatures are right in the 84 to 85 degree range, great for bill fish. However the sail fish bite has been very slow since the tsunami in Japan.  Not sure if there is a possible connection but for the sake of a time reference there is the first sign of trouble.  Recently as the blue water has intensify we have been getting a great Dorado bite, and very good sized Dorado around the 15 to 30 lb range.  Blue Marlin seem to be showing up unexpected between slow sail fish bites.  Just today April 27th most boats released at least 3 to 4 sail fish, with at least 5 Dorado, and a few lucky ones with a blue marlin release.  I think in the coming week as this full moon feeding pattern fades away the sail fish will pick up again.  I am confident we will have a big bite soon for the sails and I will be the first one to report it.  Get your info from the guy to lives here year round!
