Guatemala Pacific, - Saltwater Fishing Report
Guatemala Pacific coast

This past Sunday we took a group out on the Fat Cat to do some Guatemalan Sailfishing, the weather was beautiful the sails were packed up in one area at about ten miles offshore. We saw numerous pairs finning on the surface but only had three come up and released two sailfish.

An amazing day to have seen close to over 50 sailfish on the surface in one day, however they just would not bite! All the other boats were complaining about the same thing as well.

We did see a huge number of turtles, some porpose and a Manta with a 20 foot wingspan. While it was slow everyone really enjoyed the day.
