Last year’s event was a huge success and this year’s invitational is shaping up to be one for the books!
The 5th Annual Guatemala Billfish Invitational will take place April 23rd – 27th, at our beautiful Pacific Fins Resort. Well-known anglers from across the globe will compete in this exciting three-day event while raising money to support Guatemala’s conservation efforts.
This tournament provides a unique opportunity to fish the most prolific billfish destination on the planet in prime time, while you network with fellow anglers, celebrity guests, and potentially earn bragging rights for the next 12 months! The tournament will kick off on April 23rd at the lodge with the professional chefs creating a full-on feast for the check-in and opening party. Fishing dates are April 24th, 25th and 26th, with an award’s ceremony taking place the night of the 26th. Guests will depart on April 27th.
The tournament costs $3,500 per person and includes four night lodging, double occupancy, daily laundry service, a la carte meals, beverages, transportation to and from the airport and three days of fishing. When fishing with Pacific Fins you can expect all of the tackle and gear to be top-notch and the crews to be on their game. During the tournament there will be four anglers per boat. Each day of fishing also includes snacks, fruit, lunch and beverages. The experienced captain and crew will always do everything in their power to keep you on the fish.

We knew this was going to happen, but we didn’t know it would be this good! Since, its inception in 2016, The Guatemala Billfish Invitational has grown through the years. Past guests still feel like they are on Cloud 9 after each event. The main purpose of the tournament has always been to raise awareness for the conservation efforts by The Sailfish Commission in Guatemala.
This year is no different, the fun 3-day tournament where like-minded anglers gather to socialize and fish in a relaxed environment all in support of a worthy cause is still running strong.
In the last few years, major milestones have been accomplished and the momentum the Guatemala Sailfish Commission is obtaining are yielding immediate results for all in Guatemala.
This event wouldn’t be possible without our sponsors; Accurate Reels, Biscayne Rod, YO-ZURI, Yeti, Costa, DEEP Apparel, Kingsailfish Mounts, Guy Harvey Magazine, Nautilus Reels, Squidnation, Hook + Gaff Watches, Fishtrack and many more. A special THANK YOU to our new and returning guests, who without them it wouldn’t be possible. And, our very own Niels Erichsen for putting in lots of hours to make sure everything runs on all cylinders.
For all who can’t make it this year… we will be posting daily all the festivities taking place via social media. If I were in your shoes… I would be thinking about reserving a spot in next year’s event… 🙂
Sack artist and a nightmare to opposing Quarterback’s in the NFL, Warren Sapp, is back for the second year!
Sapp played college football for the University of Miami, where he was recognized as a consensus All-American and won multiple awards. Sapp played in the National Football League (NFL) from 1995 to 2007 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders, making the Pro Bowl seven times. Following Sapp’s NFL career, he was an analyst on NFL Network until 2015.
Sapp was drafted by the Buccaneers in the 1995 NFL Draft as the 12th overall pick. In his nine seasons with the Buccaneers, he earned seven trips to the Pro Bowl and earned the ultimate goal, a Super Bowl ring in 2002.
Whether on the football field or on a boat, Warren is a true competitor.
