“Dear Fellow Anglers:
I am excited to announce that the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation is sponsoring a series of Blue Water Fishing Expeditions at the world famous Pacific Fins Resort in Guatemala. I will be there along with one of our marine research scientists.
Each expedition is limited to 18 anglers and will encompass three days of fishing in Eastern Tropical Pacific waters. Every angler will fish with me on my boat at least one day.
As you may know, Pacific Fins Resort has access to some of the world’s most prolific offshore and inshore fishing, which is why it’s one of my favorite fishing holes in the world! We will be fishing for blue marlin, dorados, roosterfish, yellowfin tuna, cubera snapper and other species running during your visit.
After a great day of fishing we’ll all be dining together as well as having two private cocktail parties. I will be painting an original to be auctioned off on our last night together.
Please review the attached flyer and consider joining me for this incredible fishing adventure, which will double as a GHOF research mission. Our tagging of billfish, dorados and roosterfish has taught us a great deal about these magnificent fish and is helping us to protect them. Your participation in these conservation efforts will be filmed as part of a documentary we’re producing.
Please know that by investing in what I promise will be a trip of a lifetime, you will further the marine conservation efforts of the GHOF, a 501c-3 nonprofit organization.
For more details, contact Brian Rowland: [email protected] I look forward to meeting you. Fair winds and tight lines!” Expetion Link & Flyer
You can’t say “Spring Break” without thinking of a fishing trip. We are aware you are tired of the cold and miserable Winter. So, now it’s time to start planning a fishing trip to Pacific Fins, where you will get thawed out.
Our peak season is October through May, but… now comes the time of year many love. I call it “The Smorgasbord Season”. This is when not only you get intense sailfish action, its when blue marlin start to be more abundant. Yellowfin tuna will be active around spinner dolphin, and dorado will be in the larger class. Plus, you can’t never rule out a striped marlin in the spread and wahoo.
March through May is a great time to be here. It’s also the time that books fast. We have limited space available, want to be part of an epic season? Grab your passports, call your fishing partners, pack your bags, and head to Guatemala!
Uncharacteristic for this region, due to a mix of strong cold fronts and green water making it’s way into the fishing grounds, it has been a slow February. As you can see the fishing reports, there has been better days than others.
The good news, blue water started to make its way into the grounds which has resulted in better action. The blue marlin bite has picked up and reports of yellowfin tuna has sushi lovers very happy!

SOLD OUT! We knew this was going to happen. The first Unfathomed hosted trip with Captain George Gozdz booked in record time.
This is an all-inclusive adventure with 4 nights/5 days accommodations and 3 full days of offshore fishing on May 13th – May 17th, 2021. In addition to the fishing we have added an afternoon of sightseeing in the old capital city of Antigua on the day we arrive.
Due to limited space and demand, we will be adding a second Unfathomed hosted trip soon. Stay tune to social media and our weekly news letters for the next date. You don’t want to miss out on one heck of a time.
Three weeks ago, I sent out a newsletter expressing how good Summer is in Guatemala. Well…I should have been a betting man.
While many know that our waters hold loads of sailfish, particularly during the peak season from November through June, many don’t realize this region hosts good numbers of blue marlin and plenty of dorado, aka mahi-mahi during the rainy season (summer and early fall). Not to mention how good the yellowfin tuna bite has been this year and the bigger fish being caught.

Besides this awesome tuna, Mr. Schmid had 18 Sailfish bites and released 15. 13 dorados, 6 yellowfin between 40-50 lb range and a 100 lb yellowfin tuna to start day one. Lets not forget the hot marlin bite going on this time of year. Schmid also released a 350 lb blue. And of course going home with a bang…the trophy fish pictured above. We can surely say that Mr. Schmid went home all smiles!

So, when someone asks me if Guatemala has an off season? It doesn’t. With that, bring on the rain, bring on the sunshine, there is fish to be caught!
