Who say’s fishing is not great in the offseason?

Sailfish, marlin, dorado and yellowfin tuna are the most common offshore species in Guatemala. But make no mistake, this is the best sailfishing spot in the world! On average you can experience 15 to 20+ bites a day. And during the peak season, from October through May, 40 or more bites a day is not uncommon.
So, what about June and July? June is the start of what we call the offseason. That is the transitional period from dry to wet season. But is it really a wet one as some say? I say it’s just like Summer here in the states. Pockets of rain and sunshine. Plus, a great advantage of fishing during June and July that is less crowded and… you can save money with our summer specials – hint, hint.
For several years now, we have been seeing some incredible fishing during these months. Is it a fluke? Let the numbers below be the judge of that.
