A Very Fishy March

Look at that report! January and February tallies were awesome, but we also expected March to be strong as well. How strong? you’ll see it shortly.The sailfish bite was out of this world. I know it sounds cliche, but guests had rod-bending action throughout their entire visit. Take long-time repeat guest, Byrd Miller and his family broke their one-day record: 103 sailfish raises, 89 bites, and released 62.

I am going to go out on a limb and say… by far in March, Guatemala was the go-to destination if you wanted to wrangle a blue marlin. Marlin activity was strong and then you throw in striped marlin, and you got yourself a Billfish Grandslam.

Dorado is still here in big numbers. We have seen lots of spinners around, but none marking tunas yet. That will change very soon and you’ll want to be here when it goes off.With so much action offshore, many decided to check out the inshore scene. The beach waters have been clear and with the right tides, Roosterfish greeted everyone.

Planning your visit for March 2025? We highly advise you to lock in your dates, as it’s already filling up.
