The sails are Back!

No more roller coaster rides! For a couple of weeks, the fishing was like visiting an amusement park – up and down, up and down. I’m happy to say, our fishery has gained back the status of “Sailfish Capital of the World”.
For a while there, we were scratching our heads on what was going on. On the positive side, when the sailfishing was not up to par, a mixed bag of yellowfin tuna and BIG dorado made up for slow time. What better way to release a few sails and still catch sushi grade tuna and dorado.
Overall, the numbers on our fishing report illustrates how April started. Dorado and yellowfin tuna are still there and we expect it to last through the summer.
If you are planning a trip in the near future, I highly suggest to book soon. More and more people have started to look into the months ahead and you don’t want to miss out on an adventure of a lifetime. Live the Pacific Fins Experience!

From Tuna To Dorado

If you love dorado aka mahi-mahi, they are here in full force! Guests are enjoying these great fighting fish throughout the day. And let’s not talk about how tasty they are. A lot of their sizes have been over 30lbs.
As we venture offshore, there is still yellowfin tuna around with the spinner dolphin. Our last newsletter mentioned we were seeing a lot of tuna. I guess now the mixed bag just got better.
Per our fishing report below, it’s been a roller coaster ride out there. Not due to waves, but how the sailfish bite has been lately. There are better days than others, hence why it felt like a roller coaster. Surely not the action we are used to during this time of year. The whole Guatemala fleet feels the same way.
Overall, it’s been really busy for us and everyone is returning back home with great memories and stories to tell. We look forward to welcoming more guests and we are optimistic the sailfish bite will improve very soon.
