Marlin In The Spread!
Great marlin bite in Guatemala right now. As known, summer to fall can produce a very good marlin envirorment. Oct 15th we made it out for a test run on the new bertram, and started fishing just 12 miles as we entered the blue water cut in front of the marina. At about 14 miles, we had our first blue in the spread, we quickly got it hooked up and released on the 50 lb pitch bait. We continued to see 5 more blue throughout the day and just 6 sails, as well as 2 nice bull dorado. Bringing the final blue marlin talley to 2 blues for 3 bites, 5 up. We called it a day at 1pm, back at the dock at 2pm.
There was one other boat off shore 30 miles, who reported the same thing. 5 marlin in the spread, sailfish here and there, dorado here and there. So we can assume its a big area. The blue water is pushing in from El Salvador, and hopefully more fish are coming. Water temps are great, 84-86, perfect & normal. More to come!!
