This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending
June 24th 2007 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing
Company operating out of the new Pez Vela
We were pleased to welcome Michael Brennan and his two
sons to Guatemala this past week to experience The Great
Sailfishing adventure. They were inspired to fish with us after
watching Cindy Garrison’ s ESPN escapades on the Joint
The weather and seas were calm as they set off on their
first morning with Capt. Marvin. We hadn’t ventured out of
dock for a couple of days, so were a little uncertain about the
prospects, but with good blue water starting at 22 miles the
crew was optimistic.
Shortly after lines in the first Sailfish was in the spreads.
This was a good sign – the fish was lit up and aggressively
chasing the teasers, first on the port side, then rapidly
switching to the starboard. As soon as the freshly rigged
ballyhoo was in the water however, it quickly switched attention
and pursued the meal with venom. An easy hookup and release
followed in short order.
While this had been going on, Capt. Marvin had been
surveying the surrounding water, and had observed Sails
free jumping a short distance away. He kicked the Reel Diver
into gear and started to troll the mile or so to the last jumper
he had seen. Didn’t get far however before two hungry sails
started following the short line – and more action ensued.
This continued almost non-stop – eventually raising over
40 Sailfish for the day, bringing over half to the boat and
release. Could this continue ?
The second day proved that it could – even in the “low
season”. A similar catch rate for Sailfish, many Dorado
and many more smiles occurred the second day out –
the final day was capped off with two Blue Marlin.
To quote the crew : “There are Sails all over the place !”

up your business.”
