Guatemala - Quinta Pez Vela
Fishing report from Capt. Jono Nicholas, aboard the Relentless, a 47ft Jim Smith:
Dec 26 – 27th
Craig, Steve,John,Nolan and Steven were my last charter aboard the Relentless for 2007. After a short run of 8 miles the lines were set and the fleet started to spread out in serch of the big bite, as luck would have it I found my self a little further West of the fleet picking up some fresh lunch from under a log, with three 12 lb Dorados ready for the grill, we headed a little futher offshore were another boat was having a few bites. Things just went from good to excellent as it does here in Guatemala. The rest of the day went in a blurr of shouts and the call of right teaser left teaser and don't bother they are every where; out of the five anglers aboard three were novices, not for long after a few burned thumbs and a little ribbing we ended the day with 78 fish raised, 69 Bites with 41 releases, not to mention a little Blue that woke us up and refused to bite. A happy crew left the boat with hopes of trying the fly on the following day.
The Gang was back all excited for there final day on the water, after the previous day what could we expect, you guessed it nothing, the fish had moved and though, after dragging teasers around all morning in hopes of getting one on the fly, hopes began to dwindle. Could this be due to the party from the night before? Or the fishing? But the story does not end there, after finally releasing one on the fly we all decided to switch back to conventional tackle, hoo boy and here they came, we ened up raising 43 fish getting 35 bites and releasing 27 and one on the Fly. BOOM Total on the Relentless for two days fishing was 69 Sails Released for 104 bites and an incredible 130 Sails behind the boat,
What a great bite and it still continues I was out yesterday 6th jan 08 and raised 46 Sails. ONLY IN GUATEMALA .
Keep it tight and all the Best for 2008-01-07
