Pacfic Sail Fish - All year round. Peak months are Late Oct to early June. Averages can be 20 sailfish releases to 80 plus on a ''great'' day. Add a hand full of dorado, a marlin or two, and you will have an untouchable day.
People tend to assume that the winter is the best time for sailfishing in Guatemala. The reason why we are so productive is the currents in which hold bait in front of our port. In addition the current is pretty much perfect year round. Unlike Costa Rica that seems to have better fishing in one spot vs another, we have constant action year round in Guatemala. In July we have even caught 50 plus sailfish. Ask your Capt, and he will advise prime times. Summer months mean short runs and calm ocean!
Pacific Marlin- Blue, Black & Stripe all year round potentially. Late spring to December seems to be the best months. Stripe marlin show up in Oct and stick around until December/January. August has been a great month for blues lately throughout the region. Summer months in general BIG blues.
Dorado- All year round. June to Oct, they are thick promoting a good marlin diet. Oct until May dorado can be 30 to 50 lbs!
Tuna- The bite can be close at 20 miles, but usually 30 plus miles are the great numbers. 30-80 plus lbs and fearless. August until December holds a good tuna bite. However, year round tuna fishing is possible. Find the cool temps and get off the ledge and you will likely find a school!
Inshore- When the water clarity is clear and the tide is up, the rooster fishing can be GREAT! Along with snapper, and late night snook fishing just outside of the lodge doors in the channel. Spainsh macks and Jacks around shrimp boats are great fun as well.
NOTE* All clients will be VERY involved in the bait and switch practices of bill fishing. By your third day, the mates will only be instructed to assist you with the bait rigging and teasing of the fish. You are on your own to hook the fish and free spool on a big hungry sail.
