We are coming off of a rather slow end of march in regards to the bite and bookings.  I had a one day, half day charter on the 11th of April so the option to run 30 plus miles with everyone else wasn't an option.  Most charters were running way east, or way wide to the west, and based on the radio conversation it was slow.  So since I had knowledge of blue and clear water just 7 miles in front of the marina I decided to give it a go.  I didn't have the lines in the water more than 5 minutes before our first sail fish was up.  It was hot on the teaser and being both the Captain that day and first mate I hooked it up and handed the pull over to the first lucky young lady.  The bite continued to pick up.  We raised a double just after that, hooked up another.  Ended up with 4 releases and 6 raised in just 2 hours.  Keep in mind we took at least 20 minutes to get most of the fish in.  If I would have had the full crew and a full day I predict that I would have finished up nicely with at least 15 raises at the pace I was heading.  Once again many Captains are over shooting the fish by pushing off shore when they are right under our noses!  I will make it out again this week to see if they are in fact holding tighter to shore, or if I did just have the luck of an Irishmen.  The weather here is super hot, and still dry.  April always heats up and the Marlin showing up make things more interesting.  There will be a hot bite to come, stay thirsty.

The better blue water is off to the south west.  More boats should be fishing this week, helping us pattern the fish for the next group this weekend.  However, the bite hasn't really slowed down despite the full moon counting down.  Our fleet will  be working this new blue water pushing in from Mexico at the 13° 43.79´ N / 91° 08.97´ W.  This is about 28 miles off shore.  More to come as we start patterning the fish.  Tight lines to all!!!

As said before March is a great month in Guatemala as is April and May.  We recently finished with a single group on the 10th of March and the fishing was pretty solid.  We had a single angler fishing conventional and we managed to burn him out 3 out of the 4 days, due to the hot bite.  First day we released 6 sails and 5 HUGE dorado.  The dorado were all 30 lbs and we caught them all on live bait. Our third day we also released 8 sails and all and all it was a great trip for this one angler who was back at the dock at 2 pm each day.  The week before this angler we released a nice Blue Marlin around 300 lbs.  With a dozen boats out, each day we are seeing at least two boats releasing good size Blue Marlin.  A great month to knock out three species at once on the fly or conventional.
We still have some spots open in the coming months if interested.

My favorite month of the year MARCH.  A month were you can raise 30 sails and have as many as 3 to 4 blue marlin into the spread in one day.  Not to mention the marlin are all usually over 300 lbs this time of year.  We recently last friday released a 400 lb Blue, and fellow Capts are all seeing tons of action.
I will start off by recapping our last group from Jeresy this past week.  First off what a great group of guys!  Each day we set off slighty to the east at an average of 25 miles.  We saw tons of feeding sails on the surface pushing bait balls, as well as many whales doing the same.  The first two days we easily saw 100 sails pushing bait balls, but frustating enough getting sail fish to eat when there was tons of live bait was a tough sell.  We even tried doing live bait and still most days releasing 5 to 6 sails out of 15 raised was the best we could do.  We did manage to hook up with a pair of dorado's most days for cerviche and dorado salad prepared by our mate/chef/.
This sort of slow bite is common, but what's more common is the bait balls breaking up and the sail fish becoming crazy for the dead bait presentation and the teasers once again.  Finally on the last day we got a true Guatemalan bite.  We raised 15 sails landing 10, and landing a nice 20 plus lb dorado.  We decided to end this trip earlier that last day.  Some tired anglers.
Many of the yachts that were combat fishing in a local tourney had no problem getting 20 to 30 sails released. 
The bite continues to be hot as we prepare for a 4 day stretch this Monday to Thursday.  The bite is at least 30 miles off shore, but at 30 knots on our recent addition that should be short work. 
April still has some hot dates, as does may.  Both months are great months and offer thick sailfish numbers, as well as marlin, and big Dorado.

Tight Lines,
Capt Starrs

Hola Anglers!,

This past saturday we made it out with a one day charter on the fat cat.  The report the day before was very slow, mostly due to the full moon (know captains seeing just 1 sail all day).  Knowing this I have found that those are the best days for live bait.  We filled up the tank at a near by buoy using the sabiki jig.  We found at about 20 miles the water was clear and clean enough to support bill fish and dorado.  We brought 14 dorado into the boat, half were on live bait.  At least three were around 15 lbs.  A good way to entertain 10 guys on the boat that were celebrating a bachelor party.
What to expect next?
Based on Terrafin the blue water pushed through just a day ago and off to the east about 15 miles from the marina.  Water Temps also appear to be ideal, so for my 5 day New Jersey group I plan to work this area.  Usually while the moon counts down the fishing will improve greatly, also just having blue water helps fishing results greatly.  More to come as we start to fish this Sunday.

Tight Lines,

Capt Starrs
