Seas this week have continued
    to stay calm ranging between 1 to 2ft with sunny skies and light to no wind.


    This week saw good results with boats
    reporting raises in the teens to mid twenties,with releases also in the high single digits to high teens with most boats releasing between 8 to 15 sails on conventional tackle. There were even reports of marlin in the spreads. On Saturday our boat the Joint Venture
    released 10 Pacific Sailfish and a Blue Marlin in the 200 lb. Class. There was a local inshore fishing tournament this past Saturday and we have been told for those that ventured out they were rewarded well with jacks,mackerel,pargo and more.

    Once again for those anglers planning to come down to Guatemala and fish with us, please make your reservations soon as our calendar is filling up fast. We are happy to announce the addition to our fleet of the Island Time (38ft.wide-body Bertram)and the Reel
    Diver (35ft.Bertram with a full tuna tower and tuna door).Both of these vessels will be arriving in early November.

      This fishing report is for the week ending 10-30-06 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company which operates out of the new Pez Vela Marina, Guatemala.The fishing grounds for this past week went out from averaging 30 miles to as far as 45 miles over the past month to 35 to 50 miles. Seas this week have continued to stay calm with sunny skies and light to no wind in the mornings.

      This week saw good results with boats reporting raises in the teens to the low twenties,with releases also in the high single digits to mid teens - most boats releasing between 8 to 12 sails on conventional tackle. The most exciting news is that the marlin bite this past week has been Great......
      with most boats reporting at least one Blue Marlin in their spreads every day. At the end of the week all of the boats released anywhere from one to four marlin within 4 days. Another reason why we are looking forward to the imminent arrival of our latest 35ft Bertram, the "Reel Diver" - as she is fully equipped to chase those marlin with a full tower and a Marlin door. We are looking forward to a continuing strong Marlin bite - and invite you down to experience it for yourselves !!

        Guatemala - the season starts in earnest

        This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending
        November 3rd 2007 and is prepared by
        The Great Sailfishing Company
        operating out of the new Pez Vela
        Marina.

        The calm seas and clear skies belie the frenetic pace of
        activity around the docks and yards of the Marina Pez Vela.
        The bulk of the preparation for the peak of the season has been
        completed – now we are just adding the finishing touches.
        Polish on the gelcoat, a final sand of the hull …. a bit of spit
        and a bit of polish. We are ready, and by all accounts the
        billfish are ready as well.

        The boats are still doing more prospecting than usual to find
        good concentrations of fish, with raises ranging from low
        single digits to 20+ within a day of each other. The consistency
        continues to improve week by week however.

        We were pleased to welcome Snr. Gelido and his group all the
        way from Argentina this week. The reputation of the quality sailfishing
        off the Pacific Coast of Guatemala has obviously now extended
        about as far South as it can get !
        There has been a strong current of deep blue water consistently at
        40 miles from dock which has become the automatic lines in
        point for the fleet – and to start fanning out from there. The Captains
        have reported that the fish seem to be following the bluewater further
        inshore, which we hope will lead to greater concentrations closer
        in over the next few weeks………….but still…………..20+ raises
        in November seems like a good start to the season, along with a
        few marlin raised as well - maybe a good Marlin
        season to come as well !

        We still have availability for some of the popular dates, so don’t
        wait, give us a call at 1-877-763-0851 or send us an email (below)
        to check on dates – we would look forward to welcoming you to
        some of the finest fishing anywhere.

        want to go fishing”
