Report Description: As 2005 season winds down, the chatter on the dock is about another great season that once again confirms the fact Guatemala offers some of the finest sail fishing in the world. With most of the action within an hour or so of the dock – and calm seas – it looks like the season will go out with a bang; and, there could even be a few new season-totals records set. The local fleet, along with a few yachts that arrived recently, have reported good to excellent fishing most of the week. With fishing like this, it’s hard to take time to get ready for another great Christmas in Guatemala.

 Dec 17, 2005; 01:33PM - Action Improves as Week Progresses
 Category:  Guatemala Sport Fishing
 Author Name:  Gary Graham

Report Description: Action early in the week was a couple of clicks slow as boats scoured the waters 20 to 40 miles offshore for the mother lode. By mid-week, the herd was found and the action was cooking again. Mr. Wern Blasaditsch and Rodolf Hotter from Germany fishing on the Tranquility, a 31-foot Bertram, had better action each day as the week progressed. Their best day, they raised plenty of sails, releasing double digits all on the fly. Tom Pero, editor of Fish and Fly magazine and professional photographer Walter Hodges fished aboard the Maverick with Sailfish Bay owner Robert Fallon. Since neither had ever fly-fished for billfish before, there was a steep learning curve to deal with. By the end of the week, however, they both had notches on their flyrods for released sailfish; not to mention, plenty of photos and enough stories to impress their friends for some time to come. It will be interesting to see their take on Guatemala Sailfish on the Fly in Fish and Fly magazine some time next year.

Report Description: Recent reports this week are that the weather was absolutely perfect and the sailfish were ready to rock. Boats leaving the dock by 7 and began fishing around 9 a.m. It was teasers in the water and only a few minutes before the action began. A few of the boats reported double digit days with at least one doing it all on the fly.

Report Description: The 2005 Presidential Challenge starting 11-19-05 and ending on the 21st.

The action ranged between 20 to 40 miles with a couple of boats going as far as 50 miles on the last day. Alex McCleod, out of London, fly-fished four days. He had been fly-fishing in the past for sails, and had yet to boat one. After reading that Guatemala is one of the world’s hottest spots for sailfish, both with conventional tackle and on the fly, Alex booked his first trip to Guatemala. After boating 12 sails in four days (and with a few that got away) Alex said “Guatemala is all that I have read about and it sure feels great when those dreams come true.” Not only was Alex rewarded with 12 sails, but several dorado on the fly as well. Alex fished on-board “The Stragos,” a 31-foot Bertram and fished between 20 to 25 miles.

Report Description: With the 2005 Presidential Challenge beginning this morning, most of the boats fishing this week have been in their “Tournament Mode” and keeping quiet about the action and location. Secrets notwithstanding, the fishing was consistently good throughout the week and everyone is looking forward to a successful event. Sounds like there were some double digit scores for sailfish on some of the scouting boats. Boats also reported dorado and tuna were showing up behind the boat.

Report Description: San Jose, Guatemala

The fishing for Guatemala this week went from BORING to WFO. Early in the week, boats were traveling 40 to 50 miles to find good action ranging from high single digits to mid-double digits with a few here and there on the fly. As the weekend approached, the fish moved half the distance to the beach ranging anywhere from 15 to 25 miles. The sailfish bite turned on and by all accounts the 2006 Season has begun! Boats were reporting an incredible number of the fish that Guatemala is famous for raised and caught. With even a few yellowfin tuna and dorado thrown in; it was a great start for a new season.

Report Description: All the storm activity during the past month has driven the clean water forty to 50 miles offshore. While the fishing is good, it is not up to the usual level found in Guatemala. Sounds like there are few YFT and dorado mixed in as well.

While last month’s hurricane “Stan” left a mess in its wake, the area has bounced back quickly and the port is getting back to normal. While [resort hotel] Villas del Pacifico sustained some damage, they are cleaned up and back in operation.

Report Description: With all the recent storm activity, the water has be off-color and fishing has been tough. Everyone is hoping that the fringes of Wilma don’t extend the poor conditions. Activity should begin to pick up right after the first of the month as the fleet begins to ramp up for the upcoming season.

Report Description: Hurricane “Stan” caused some heavy flooding to some parts of Puerto San Jose. A few of the private houses in the Villas del Pacifico Compound were flooded with two to three feet of water but most are OK. At the resort, a few large trees were fallen and some flooding to the employee quarters and parking lot but the resort is OK and open for business.
Currently the roads to both the Villas and Marina Sol are closed but should open soon. Because of the poor weather no boats fished this week.
