Picture on the left is of a 300 lb blue eating a fly, picture on the right it feels the sting, and goes air borne.
Don't go writing Guatemala off as strictly a sailfish fishery.
The marlin bite is incredible these days (august to nov usually is), and the past 3 weeks is nothing short of world class. 9 miles to 30 miles we are seeing BIG blues.
We had a last minute booking on the fly, to fish Sunday, Monday, & Tuesday.
While the first day was slow, we raised a double header of blues in the last hours, no bite. The next day on the same spot, we got another shot, this time we stuck that blue! Quick release too!
That day we saw 5 more blue marlin with several very close shots. As well as the sailfish where here and there.
3 day total:
12-3-1 Blue Marlin Fly
19-6-3 Sailfish Fly
1-1-1 Mahi Mahi Fly
We are anxious to get on the bait, for many of these fish were certainly a sure thing with a bait or lure.
More to come!
