Guatemala - Pacific Fins report
Capt. Ron Hamlin reports:
June 6th. and 7th - Kenvin Duesterhoft brought 4 of his friends down at the same time that the tropical storm that devestated Quepos, was passing here. While not as bad it still had a lot of rain and some wind. In the 2 days we raised 5 had 5 bites and released 4. We also had a Blue Marlin eat a dorado right off out line and never bite one of our baits, now thats bad luck.
June 12 th, 13 th. and 14 - What a difference 4 days made for Bill Campbell and his son Andrew. The ocean was flat calm and the sun was out everyday. Fishing improved a lot we had 50 raises and 43 bites and released 27 we also had 2 shots a nice Blue and caught about 20 nice Yellow Fin Tunas there getting larger as the summer goes on.
Capt. Haron Valdez reports:
This past week we fished with Patrick Stephens and Connie Seguin from Bellingham Washington - two anglers who normally fish salmon back home.
Day one fishing started slow and late - weather was not that good we raised 3 had 2 bites and caught 1 sail and 5 small dorados;
Day two still pretty bad seas but fishing was better - raised 2 had 1 bite and caught 1 sail - raised 2 blues had 1 bite and caught him that was Patrick's first blue ever and three dorados 40,42,and 38 lbs
Day three raised 4 had 2 bites caught 2 sails but the highlight was Patrick's TOMIC lure made for salmon fishing - we caught yellowfin ,dorados (40lbs),hound fish - 3 blues came into the spread -all 2 wanted were the teasers and the third one missed the skiping bonito and made a hole like a 1/4 stick of tnt exploded
Day four we had 5 sails up only 1 bite and caught him and 2 dorados 25 lbs
What a difference for this party that fishes mainly for salmon and halibut!
** Note - I have fished my Luhr Jensen salmon lures, similar to the Tomic shown in the pic, everywhere and they've always produced fish **
