Ballyhoo

Well it's that time of year again.  We are currently enjoying a great ballyhoo catch just along the coast of Guatemala towards Monterrico.  We are stocking up our freezers for another great bill fish bite to come.  In addition boats are being tuned, rebuilt in some cases, and put in the water this month.  November marks the official start of our season, contact us for further information regarding key times for fishing and detailed package info.

Tight Lines,

February has been a pretty good month.  We have a little bit of everything.  Two fly fishermen who all hooked up on the fly with sail fish, while getting as many as 6 shots on the fly in a given day.  This was considered slow by Guatemalan standards, but as the month wears on the bite has improved greatly.  Yesterday February 14th I finished my four day ATL group which end with a bang.  They had requested to be back at the dock early in order to catch a later flight that night.  We laid up in rough seas at 12 miles and the dorado bite was solid.  About 1 hour into the morning as we trolled out the sail fish bite took over.  We landed two doubles, that should have been triples, and ended the day with 12 bites and 10 released.  On top of that we had 8 good sized dorado in the freezer.  Good stuff!  Once the other lodges and fleets started hearing my reports, I was quickly accompanied by at least 10 other boats.  Not everyone did as well, but most finished the day with 15 releases.  We are finally starting to pattern the fish again after a rough last week.  This is the greatest thing about a small sport fishing community, the ability to help each other out and all get fish in the end.  Tight lines!

FISHING AT 4 MILES OFFSHORE IN GUATEMALA?!

If there hasn't been a fishing report update in some days, its because I am fishing like a mad man.
I just got off a 4 day stretch with a shared boat of clients from Ohio and Rhode Island.  The fuel bill was in my favor this week as we only had to go 6 miles off shore to find productive blue water.  In fact, some days we laid up at just 4 miles to find a good morning bite.  On our 26 foot walk around at 30 knots, that get you there in less than 20 minutes. 
The interesting combo with this shared group was the fact we had one conventional angler, and one fly angler.  It actually worked out great, and both anglers had tons of action.

First day we had around 18 sails raised, 2 with a fly in the mouth, and we released just 8 for the day.  Keep in mind the clients hooked all the fish as do all of my anglers coming down here.  The mate will tease the fish, and help keep the spread interesting, but the anglers are catching the fish, unlike other charters who simply hand you the rod.

Second day a bite slower as the weekend fishing pressure pushed the fishing apart.  We still managed to release 5, one on the fly, and 7 jack cravelle around 15 lbs.  1 Jack on the fly, which was fun as well.

Third day, started slow and end better.  We had a couple doubles, released one on the fly, and raised about 12 sails all day.

Fourth day, SLOW in the morning.  Almost 3 hours without a single raised fish, and we weren't the only ones.  As we trolled west we found incredible water difference and it was 30 minutes into better water that things turned.  We had 4 hook on the fly, many aggressive fish.  We ended that day despite the slow start with 13 fish raised, and two landed on the fly.  That last day was just a fly day. 
Over all lots of good fishing if you find productive water.  Several shots on the fly, and more blue water is being pushed in from Mexico.  I will be fishing for the whole month, so please excuse the slow reporting.  Tight lines.
