The fishing this past week has ranged from outstanding to tough – as has the weather! The storm that is now approaching the Gulf Coast has been busy pushing fronts across all of Central America – and Guatemala was quick to catch a cold ! Early in this past week we have been seeing days where 20-30 billfish raised was the norm – but as soon as the front and the weather came in, the seas built and unfortunately the fishing slowed. The Netland group saw decent fishing their first day, with a half dozen sailfish and a good sized Blue Marlin that took over two hours to bring to the boat for release.
Following days however brought ever increasing seas, and most boats stayed closer to shore – either splitting the day with some inshore fishing, or searching for Dorado and sailfish at about 25 miles.
The weather has now passed, and with the calmer seas the bait is now concentration again – so we are hopeful to see consistent fishing more on a par to the early part of last week than the latter days.
The winter almanac is forecasting the coldest winter in North America in a decade – so this is a great year to book in for a fishing trip to the calm waters and sunshine of Guatemala while we still have dates available ! Get our FREE Angling Guide to Guatemala. www.fishing-guatemala.com
