Living here year round I can tell you when a fishing report is for real or not.  Meaning if you're not out there, or talking to mates face to face on the docks most of what you read will not always add up.  However, November 15th 2009 release numbers are pretty much at a consistent high.  Meaning 15 to 20 releases per boat.  Much different than last year.  Last year while still be productive, had some unheard of slow months.  Days where just a few sails where raised, yet above average marlin bite made it okay for the most part.  They called it a cycle year.  This year has started out very strong with a noticeable sailfish bite that can't help but get all the charters excited.  Each time while going out for half day charters the productive blue water has been at about 15 miles just about every time if not closer.  Good news.  At the moment you can expect to see releases in the double digits without a doubt.  Some boats are even producing 30 releases with many more sails raised.  All of this action with nice sized Blue Marlin Showing up ever third day, as well as big Dorado is a great day of fishing even for Guatemala.  The bite will get better as the rain continues to burn off and the water gets bluer with more fleets helping in the search.  December for Blue Bayou Sport Fishing is booked for the first time with Fly Fishermen.  Many of which are targeting Blue Marlin.  December is known as one of those months were anything can happen.  Soon we will have pictures and video to follow.  Tight Lines.

With more and more boats getting back into action after over hauls, and major maintenance, the reports are starting to get better and better.  All charters agree that the water temperatures are starting to level off to a consistent range that is desirable for sails and marlin alike.  Just last week the averages have double for sailfish release, and as expected Marlin are showing up every other day for the more active fleets.  Reports in Guatemala are usually slow for the spring to fall time frame simply because nobody is fishing.  Usually just us and locals.  With very few boats, and most charters closed down for a couple of months it is tough to track the fish as we normally do.  It is a team effort amongst us all.  So this usually results in slow reports with the bigger lodges.  However, you will hear about everything we catch at least once a week.  You never know when it will turn on, and you need to get down here.

Tight Lines,
Capt Starrs
