A Brief Guatemala fishing report from Captains, Anglers and other Unreliable Sources.
Fishing is slow for Guatemala standards, but what we are Lacking in quantity, we are making up for in. Quality.
Jason Brice aboard the "Twenty" has raised 27 sails had. 24 bites and released 14 sails in his last 7 days of fishing, he has also raised 5 blue marlins had 5 bites and released 4 of them Including one estimated at 550 lbs that ramed the boat and left some of his bill lodged in the "Twenty".
Chris Sheeder aboard the "Rum Line" had the pleasure of having the father and son team of Mike and Harry Combs on board. Harry stole the show releasing his first of 2 blue marlins estimated at 300. and 200 lbs and a sailfish estimated at 130 lbs. In Chris' last 2 days fishing with Chris and Thomas Siska they released 2 out of 5 bites on the Fly and another Blue estimated at 225lbs.
Niko Malendrez aboard the "Release" has had the hot hand raising 64 sails with 56 bites and releasing 37 sails in his last 8 days of fishing. Niko and crew have also raised 7 Blue Marlins in those 8 days with 6 bites and released 4 between 150lbs to 300lbs.

Things are going to get hot and heavy soon, Big Dolphins, wads of sails feeding on large schools of bait balls, Large schools of bonitas feeding inshore and the marlins that feed on them are literally on the door step. The marlins are knocking too, in the last 9 days, between 4 Casa Vieja boats they have raised 22 blues, had 19 bites, and released 14 blue marlins, that's world class marlin fishing anywhere!!!!
