Offshore Fishing Reports from Venice and Guatemala
Venice: Capt Kevin Aderhold had a day trip last Friday but had to run all over the Gulf to find good water with NO SHARKS….They had two Yellowfin and one Blackfin Tuna. The sharks gave them hell, but they had a good group from south Florida and they will be back for a 24hr trip in June on the 55′ Strike Zone Too. We guaranteed them a lot of Yellowfin.
Guatemala: I just got back from a wonderful trip to Antigua, Guatemala. My wife is a nurse anesthetist and she goes to Antigua as part of the Knoxville Medical Mission every year. This year the group helped about 60 people get needed operations. My son Christopher and I escorted her and I managed to slip out on Wednesday to fish with a group of guys that were in Guatemala for a wedding. What a bunch of nice guys from Alabama. Justin Schilling, Mike Harlan, Brandon Harlan and a friend. When we got down to the marina the wind was blowing about 25 kts….I didn’t think we were going to make the trip…But our new captain, Joel/Hercules said let’s go….and off we went…..we were leading the pack of charter boats out of the marina….most of the boats were hugging the coast but our Captain elected to go right into the seas on the Strike Zone…. As we looked back, five boats out of the fleet were heading back…He, like the American captains, just love to fish that boat. It catches a lot of billfish and takes the sea very well. We dropped our lines when we were 15 miles out and after 20 minutes we had our first Sail…The guys could not believe the fight and show that Sailfish preformed for us….We were in nonstop action all day…we ended up going 14 for 19 on Sails and three Bull Dolphin….three times we had two Sails on at one time and one time we had a triple. The group with Scott Hartley had fished the day before for three days on the Strike Zone and they had a total of 58 Sails in three days… Total Sails in four days was 72….The Strike Zone has been out catching the fleet in Guatemala when it is out fishing.
Seth Holl ,the mate on the Strike Zone Too in Venice is heading down to Guatemala for the next few months to mate. He will help a lot knowing a lot of our customers that will be fishing in Guatemala. He doesn’t know spanish but he will be sleeping with this fine chic, Rosetta Stone on a regular basis.
I have trips going every month to Guatemala that we can add one to four anglers to the group, or you can get your own group….This is the ultimate fishing trip and adventure of a life time….
