We’re into May and Allure II will start fishing pretty steadily from May 18th through into mid June. We still have plenty of great dates mid June through to the months end. These are our favorite months in Guatemala with a good mix of blue marlin esp into July, August on. The mahi mahi bite has been strong this year and we can’t see that slowing down and then we’re hoping to see a return of the XXL tunas. Get in touch, we have the weekend of June 18th open, that’s Father’s Day weekend. What better way to spend the it than with your dad on the water. Don’t forget July and August as prime months here in Guatemala!!
