While fishing last week, the trends of the productive blue water heading from 15 miles out to 30 miles remains the same.  Having three days this past week to fish on the 11th, 12th, and 13th we were able to hook lots of fish.  Bill fish were slow to bite, but with the help of shared information over the radio and at the docks we were able to get several bites for our group from Michigan.  There was some nice Tuna action as well.  A few nice size yellow fine mixed things up each day.  Around the 25 lb range.  We found hundreds of smaller spinning Dolphins that helped us find the fish most days, and we even got to see a hump back whale about 15 yards of the bow.  Very exciting time here in Guatemala.

Sorry for the delayed fishing reports!!!!  Too much Fishing!!!

Well the end of January and the beginning of Feburary goes like this:  With the father and son repeat group from Michigan, from last year we were able to slam the sails.  Last year this time we also did pretty well.  Releasing at least 12 sails a day for 15 to 18 bites in a 6 hour time period.  This year was a bit different.  For starters each time we raised a Sail, we would have at least a double or triple no matter what.  They were schooling for sure, vs hitting one at a time.  So that was a change for the better.  The results were pretty much the same, but I would say at least 20 bites for 2 of the 3 days we were out.  Secondly, the weather was less forgiving.  While Guatemala is known for extremely calm seas, we got rocked each day.  6 foot rollers is tough to handle but the bite was not affected.  This strong wind over that week actually blew the productive blue water from 20 miles to 15 miles in 2 days, and then 8 miles just a few days later.  At the moment we are currently fishing at only 8 miles with calm seas and at least 20 to 30 raised sails as a result.   We have some spots open this March which is my favorite time, hope to see you soon.
