Live the Pacific Fins Experience

March Madness – Fishing Report

You can‚Äôt mention ‚ÄúSpring Break‚ÄĚ without thinking of a fishing trip. Guests who traveled to Pacific Fins in March were greeted with really good numbers.This is the time of year many love. It’s when not only you get intense sailfish action, it’s when the man in the blue suit aka blue marlin start to be more abundant as well.Yellowfin tuna will be active around spinner dolphins, and dorado will be in the larger class (Pics below don’t lie).

Plus, you can‚Äôt never rule out a striped marlin in the spread.For those looking to travel with family, March through June is a great time to be here. It‚Äôs also months that book 10 to 12 months in advance. Which is why, I always advice those that couldn’t find a spot to start planning for the following year.We still have a few spaces available, want to be part of an epic season? Call your fishing partners, grab your passports, pack your bags, and head to Guatemala!

January / February Fishing Report

January is a great time of year to fish our waters. Though, this past January mother nature decided to throw us a fastball. Not a curveball… a fast ball! What do I mean? abnormal strong currents did not allow bait to concentrate in one particular area for a long period of time, which resulted in subpar fishing.

About 7 years ago, we had the same isolated currents wreak havoc by pushing the bait further from our zones. One day you mark fish and the other day you end up scratching your head on where did they go. The currents were so strong that in a 24 hour window bait got pushed 20 to 30+ miles away.

Now, with all this going on, we still had very good fishing days. We caught plenty of sailfish, dorado, yellowfin tuna, blue marlin, and striped marlin. It was just the second half of the month that this came to develop.

The good news is everything’s back to normal. Keep your eyes out for the next newsletter, as you will see March reports get RED HOT.

Looking to put Pacific Fins in your travel plans? we highly suggest to lock in those dates as soon as possible. Fall 2023 dates are filling up fast and so is the 2024 season!
