vacation for avid anglers looking to catch some serious big game fish. This trip consists of 3 full days of fishing and 4 nights of lodging.
The Pacific coast of Guatemala features some of the world’s most consistently calm billfishing waters. This fishing haven is known as one of the best Sailfishing spots in the world, where anglers can get 15 to 20 bites a day and up to 40 bites a day during peak season (October through June). The top boats catch and release over 2,000 Sailfish a year! While Sailfish is the main attraction, in these waters you can also reel in some massive Tuna and Marlins. If you're looking to break your personal record, this trip is for you!
On this trip you'll be fishing an area called the “Pocket”, a deep underwater canyon that is 30 Nm wide. Most days Captain Ozzy will start you just 12 to 15 miles offshore on the tip of the canyon, but he may run you as far as 40 miles out if that’s what it takes to put you on the fish. Once out on the water, you'll be going for Sailfish, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Black Marlin and more. 300 to 600 pounds is average for these massive Blue Marlin. In recent years it has not been uncommon for the best captains to raise 4 or more marlin in a day! Marlin can be caught year round in Guatemala, and are especially good to fish in September through December.
You'll be targeting these fish using various methods such as light tackle, heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling and jigging. Whatever fish you want to go after, Captain Ozzy will get you set up with the best method! You can even choose to fly fish if you wish. For billfish, expect to use artificial teasers and naked rigged natural bait such as ballyhoo. Quality is ensured with Shimano 20 to 50 pound class stand-up tackle. Guatemala is a world leader in conservation and all bait is rigged with circle hooks. All billfishing is Catch and Release Only, ensuring this fishing “hot spot” remains the angler’s choice destination for many years to come.
Fishing trips will run from 7:00am to 4:30pm. During the day your crew will serve you a hot lunch, snacks and fresh fruit. They will also prepare fresh Ceviche or Sashimi right in the galley! Beer, rum/vodka, sodas, Gatorade and bottled water will all be provided. It's safe to say the resort-class luxury does not stop when you get on the boat!
