Whether you save money for a destination dream hunt or a bucket list fish you are after, perhaps there’s no better way to recount those memories than through taxidermy.

A nice mount serves as a meaningful home décor and a conversation piece with guests – what better way to brag about your accomplishment than through an actual replica.
At Pacific Fins, we proudly offer our guest a company that has the reputation of making the best fish replicas around. This is why we have Kingsailfish Mounts as the official taxidermist of Pacific Fins Resort.
The artists at KSM will make your mount explode to life with vibrant colors, animated action and extra details you don’t often come by.
King Sailfish Mounts has grown to be a World-Class producer of Fish Mounts and a solid leader in Marine Conservation. KSM continues to produce mounts in the traditional manner, by hand…One-At-A-Time…with extreme accuracy in keeping with the same principals that led to KSM’s initial success in the field of fiberglass fish reproductions.
Here are more examples of their amazing work:
Your rooms will have KSM brochures and aboard our fleet. The crew will supply you with the necessary information to order your mount. Or simply visit their website and let them know you caught and released your fish while at PF.
Fall is quickly approaching and October starts our peak season. I may sound like a broken record, but Guatemala’s calm Pacific Coast is hands down one of the greatest billfishing destination in the world. Our waters hold some of the highest concentration of billfish year round. Guatemala has both the conventional and fly fishing records for most sailfish released in one day. In addition to sailfish and marlin, yellowfin tuna, and dorado are omnipresent. And if we have another banner season of yellowfin tuna like we are having in 2019, it’s going to be one not to miss.
Your trip will become a lifetime remembering experience, coupled with volcano, mangroves and natural reserves in the background. You are in for a sportfishing experience of a lifetime.
A sight that never gets old…the acrobatic displays of billfish.
Coming in HOT! Nothing gets the blood pumping than a lit up Sail on your bait.
There is no surprise in the fishing industry and internationally, Guatemala is the GO-TO destination – “Anyone looking for high numbers of Pacific sails need look no further than Iztapa and neighboring Puerto Quetzal in Guatemala, where sport-fishing fleets tally two dozen or more releases most days this time of year.” – Saltwater Sportsman Magazine.
September and October are still part of our “Marlin Guarantee” promo.Book our most popular package, 3 days fishing, 4 nights for Sept or Oct and we guarantee your boat will get at least 3 Marlin Bites on conventional tackle over the length of the trip! That’s right… 3 bites by the man in the Blue, Black or Striped suit over 3 days fishing! For more info, contact us.
I could keep on writing about our fishery, but I would rather not spoil the surprise.
Thinking of changing it up a little on your next visit to Pacific Fins? How about taking a crack at a Sail on Fly? Sounds intimidating right? Well…it’s not.
Guatemala is the knock-down, drag-out world champion when it comes to fly fishing for sailfish! With more raises and releases than anywhere in the world you will have the best opportunity for success in the bluewater off Guatemala’s Pacific Coast.
The anticipation of landing that first sail on fly is a great feeling. As you cruise these fertile waters and suddenly hear our mates scream “vela, vela, vela” your bluewater fly fishing baptism has begun.
Fly fishing for sailfish is not difficult. It is certainly easier then fly fishing the flats for bones, permit and tarpon which require much longer casting. Just like anything else – it requires a little discipline. Anglers must be patient, listen to our mates, cast at the appropriate time, and position the rod at the correct angle to set the hook.
Let’s face it. You won’t be perfect every time – there are several moving parts involved. So you need a fishery that is prolific. And Guatemala is that destination where you can have upwards of 15 – 20 shots per day at sailfish averaging 80 – 110 lbs.
Our waters are teeming with billfish.
The captains and mates at Pacific Fins are among the finest in the world. They’re experts when it comes to locating, teasing and fly fishing for billfish. They have had a lot of practice with so many sailfish over the years.
Tools of the trade: Nautilus Monster reel with tube fly.
