This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending
November 3rd 2007 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company
operating out of the new Pez Vela
The calm seas and clear skies belie the frenetic pace of
activity around the docks and yards of the Marina Pez Vela.
The bulk of the preparation for the peak of the season has been
completed – now we are just adding the finishing touches.
Polish on the gelcoat, a final sand of the hull …. a bit of spit
and a bit of polish. We are ready, and by all accounts the
billfish are ready as well.
The boats are still doing more prospecting than usual to find
good concentrations of fish, with raises ranging from low
single digits to 20+ within a day of each other. The consistency
continues to improve week by week however.
We were pleased to welcome Snr. Gelido and his group all the
way from Argentina this week. The reputation of the quality sailfishing
off the Pacific Coast of Guatemala has obviously now extended
about as far South as it can get !
There has been a strong current of deep blue water consistently at
40 miles from dock which has become the automatic lines in
point for the fleet – and to start fanning out from there. The Captains
have reported that the fish seem to be following the bluewater further
inshore, which we hope will lead to greater concentrations closer
in over the next few weeks………….but still…………..20+ raises
in November seems like a good start to the season, along with a
few marlin raised as well - maybe a good Marlin
season to come as well !
We still have availability for some of the popular dates, so don’t
wait, give us a call at 1-877-763-0851 or send us an email (below)
to check on dates – we would look forward to welcoming you to
some of the finest fishing anywhere.
