Yellowfin Tuna Are Starting To Show Up
After a nice Guatemala Winter that was full of surprises - with the Strike Zone and the Jacpot catching Dorado's, Marlins and Sails - we are preparing for the "High Season" in Guatemala that begins in October.
Sailfish Season starts in October and goes through
May 2010 and as Marlin Magazine cover page said - the
blue & black suit boys hit the Guatemala coasts too -making it the NEW hot place for Marlin as well.
Strike Zone was our first boat to start the season
fishing with our friends Jose Alonzo, Salatiel
Barragan, and Javier Rosales from Mexico this
past Tuesday and it was SWEET! We headed out
at 7 am from Marina Pez Vela as usual and by 8:15 the lines were in the water.
Imagine 7 straight hours fishing!!! WOW between
Dorado's and Sails our friends had a complete
workout. The total count was 6 sails and 15 dorado's - not a bad day at all....
Today was a nice day too - 5 Sails and 1 blue
around 250 pounds. The Marlin - really makes
the day worth it. Just looking at how fast they are and
how he hit the KONA was incredible. The
adrenaline was HIIIIIIIGHHHH!!! Sails were around
the 100 pounds and with 3 dorado's to share the day they had a tasty ceviche was soooo nice! Our friends
from Guatemala and two Americans were having fun
watching those sails jump around. Remember that
catch n release fishing with circle hook makes a
fantastic show to watch.
Come and join us and get to know this wonderful
country full of energy and warm people that will
make your trip worth every minute. Keep tight and
ready because the action is just starting.
Thanks Capt. Edgar for the report. I will be in Guatemala
from Oct 12 to 17 and hope to tag a few Sails.
