The Curvo party came all the way from Brazil after having heard how good the sailfishing was in Guatemala. They were not disappointed. After a great first day, they almost had enough. Mr. Curvo at 80+ years of age was expecting to catch 1 or 2 sails and his son and nephews had similar expectations. 29 in one day was plenty...so much so that the last day they
decided to do a little inshore fishing so they could finish fishing early and take the sights of Antigua Guatemala in the afternoon.

The boats that have gone out are averaging 16 of 23 releases on sails, and some boats have a much higher average. The action on dorado is still very good, with some impressively large ones coming in.

Marlins continue to show up each week behind the boats, and there have been some large dorado.

 Category:  Guatemala Sport Fishing
 Author Name:  Gary Graham
 Author E-mail:  bajafly@bajafly.com
Report Description: SAN JOSE, GUATEMALA

IN GENERAL: This past week the burning question has been, “Where have all the anglers gone?” The fish are still here in great numbers, the conditions are nice, but the boats are not going out. The few that did get out averaged 17 releases of 22 hooked for sails on conventional gear, and 8 releases of 22 hooked on fly tackle. The dorado have shown up in huge numbers with 3 boats reporting a total of 170 hooked, which makes the sailfishing a little tough. Marlin also continue to show up with a steady frequency of a couple per week. Be sure to check out the current story on ESPN Outdoors about Guatemala on the Fly:

 Author E-mail:  bajafly@bajafly.com
Report Description: SAN JOSE, GUATEMALA

IN GENERAL: Sailfish 101 went off without a hitch and the mission was accomplished. Five went in search of their first sailfish on the fly and they weren’t disappointed. On arrival day (Sunday) a front came roaring though and left grumpy seas for the first day. Regardless, by the end of the day all five had seen the quarry but failed to complete the task. The second day brought calmer conditions and the group headed out with firm resolve to do better. That night at dinner three could celebrate their success and the other two could only watch while vowing to succeed the next day. Succeed they did and on the final night everyone could boast that they had caught their first sailfish on the fly and most had even done better than that with multiple catches recorded. During the four days the group averaged three events (fish in the teasers) an hour during actual fishing time. We have already started planning our next series, don’t miss out!

 Apr 16, 2004; 01:23PM - Good by Guatemalan Standards
 Category:  Guatemala Sport Fishing
 Author Name:  Gary Graham
 Author E-mail:  bajafly@bajafly.com
Report Description: SAN JOSE, GUATEMALA

IN GENERAL: The action has picked up again this week. Although there were fewer boats out, those fishing averaged 20 releases out of 33 hooked sailfish on conventional gear, and on the fly side, anglers were able to release an average of 8 of 22 hooked sailfish. Also on the fly there was one roosterfish released out of seven hooked. The action remains very good by Guatemalan standards and outstanding compared to other locations. I am headed down April 18 for a week and can't wait. If it is anything like Feb., I should have plenty of stories and photos to share. Bennett Mintz and his buddy attorney David Hardacre couldn't resist the vacuum and are coming down with me to see if there are really that many sails in one place.
