April 21-22 great to catch up with Team Rehab down for their annual Guatemalan trip from Freeport, Texas, a few new faces this year though the same old good times. Over 2 x days of fishing we raised 16 sailfish, a bit finicky they were and tough to convert though the boys released 5 from 13 bites, 1 from 1 on blue marlin and 1 release from 2 bites on striped marlin as well as a couple of mahi’s and 9 yellow fin tunas in the boat….

Ren, Fulton and Dak Millis

April 9th through the 11th from North Carolina we welcomed Dak and his sons Ren and Fulton for some preseason practice before splashing their new boat and hitting the season up in the Outer Banks. A bit tough out there for us by Guate standards though the boys got into and learnt the bait ‘n switch..

For their trip we raised 26 sailfish and released 12 from 26 bites, the boys were into it with Fulton fishing well and Ren was dropping back like a pro by the end of the trip…

And mixed it up changing to the fly at the end of both days. With time just about up on the clock at the end of the last day Jim laid out a great cast, did everything right and released his first billfish on the fly.

Nice going and what a way to finish the trip!!

Summer time is blue marlin time in Guatemala, we have a few trips booked in May through June 9th so looking forward to getting out there. The boat will be in the water and the Lodge will be open right through the summer, it’s a great time of year with more mahi’s about, tunas, sailfish and of course the blue marlin action picks up and peaks through September and October. Get in touch, we have great summer discounts as well…..
