This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending
November 26 th 2007 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company
operating out of the new Pez Vela
Fishing over the last few weeks has been steady, with
raises in the high double digits the norm. – a slight dip over
the full moon last week, but numbers of releases for both
Sailfish and Marlin have been strong since.
The bite has been especially vigorous first thing in the morning,
and this has been made easier and more convenient for
anglers with the blue water moving in as close in as only
We welcomed the Schafferius party to our new villa this
week – complete with swim-up bar, satellite TV and amenities
…….all the comforts of home without the washing
More importantly, we welcomed them aboard the Joint
Venture for their first days fishing, and put lines in at
9 miles from the dock.
The action came thick and fast, with Sailfish aggressively
pursuing the teasers. They raised 20 Sailfish on their first
day out – with 15 bites and 8 releases. Also in the mix, and
brought to the boat was a 350lb Blue Marlin and some
good sized Dorado for the table.
The season has now started in earnest, and the early
indicators are good for plenty of billfish this year – hopefully
the marlin will hang around as well !
Correction : I reported last week of “Grand Slams” being
released (Blue/Black marlin and Sailfish). I regret that
this was in error and due to my poor translation (literally)
of the Captain’s report. In fact they reported several “Slams”
of Blue Marlin, Sailfish and Dorado. Apologies for that – we
like to be accurate in our reporting.
A strong Marlin
bite, good numbers of Sailfish raise and caught – and even
food for the table……….things are definitely looking up in the
rich fishing grounds off the Pacific Coast of Guatemala.
The boats are ready, the crews are primed – come down and enjoy
the buildup to what we hope is going to be a great season
fishing with The Great Sailfishing Company
