Guatemala fishing conditions

Guatemala Fishing report February 18th 2009

We are now approximately half way through the peak season, and we have seen hardly any of this – we have had days raising up to 80 sailfish, we have had days raising only (high !) single digits.

………….

 

We welcomed Mike Northcott down late in January, followed by Linda Gould for her return trip. I mention this because the last person we had taking a swim with the fish was Cindy Garrison, who clearly couldn’t control her excitement at bringing a beautiful pacific sail to the transom – and promptly donned a mask and hiked over the side to take pictures and carouse with nature. Obviously Mike………followed in quick succession with Linda Gould’s group – were inspired by this, as they took the first dip of this season with the billfish and got some great pictures.

In some ways this is better than classic “catch and release” as the fish forgoes the last manic dash for freedom and instead is released gently in the water – but on the other hand if you have ever seen one of these creatures lit up in hues of blue and leaping towards the stern (and angler) with a glint in its eye and aiming its bill at the quarry……..you may pause to question the wisdom of being in the same proximity.

Not a tactic that we would endorse, and neither would our insurance…..but great pictures nonetheless.
