Join us fishing in Guatemala. Guatemala is by far the most prolific and talked about Sailfish destination in the world, home to so many world records for Sailfish, it really is classed as the number one place in the world. With regular 50 shot days in peak season and 15 – 25 shots on a regular day, you will soon find yourself realising that this part of the world is a must-visit Sailfish destination for any saltwater specialist angler.
You will be fishing the fish filled waters off Guatemala where the Sailfish swim free and are abundant in numbers. These South American waters of the Atlantic Ocean are full of nutrients and this in-turn attracts the many species of fish that you will find there, along with the amazing Sailfish fishery the sea off Guatemala are teaming with all the Tuna family and also most Billfishes.
We all know that nothing is ever guaranteed in fishing, but this is about as close as you can get to perfection. Ever dreamt of teasing lit up Sailfish to within 20ft of the stern, multiple hook-ups and constant action? Then dream no more, as this is a true saltwater anglers dream location. The reason for the outstanding action is the vast amount of baitfish all year round and put this together with warm eddies, makes the ideal habitat for huge pods of Sailfish that are present year-round. If you fancy a break from the Sailfish, then the Dorado and Tuna action is also world-class and are the perfect species to target, if you wish to bring something home for the table. In addition to the Sailfish, you also stand the chance of the odd Blue Marlin. Inshore fishing is also very good and well worth a change as the Roosterfish, Wahoo and Cubera Snapper fishing is well worth a go.
The fishing grounds start pretty much as you leave the breakwater and can be as far out as 50 miles, although it is more common to find the fish in what we term as “The pocket” a deep-water canyon that has huge drop-offs ranging from 1000ft – 5000ft. The Sailfish at this destination in Guatemala are renowned speedsters and will leave you grinning from ear to ear as they scream off at a rate of knots. You will be holding on for dear life as you do battle with these stunning fish in the clear blue waters around Guatemala.
