CHASCO CONSTRUCTION GROUP
February 10-11-12 it was great to see this crew back here in Guatemala for their annual trip from Austin, TX. Covid put paid to last years trip so it was good to finally catch up for their 4th trip to the Oasis! They chose the dates well as a new body of water pushed in from the west and we found some good fishing….
They initially had 2 scheduled fishing days on x 3 boats with a couple for nights in Antigua on the itinerary, though with the excellent fishing and good times they decided to stay on for an extra day fishing on x 2 boats and an extra night at the Lodge.
For their 3 days total the guys released 107 sailfish and 2 blue marlin as well as boating several mahi’s. Fantastic trip with a great bunch of guys, good times on the boats and back at the Lodge.
SUPER BOWL GROUP
February 5-6-7 it was awesome to see these guys back here as well coming out of Corpus Christi and Port Aransas. The stalwarts of this group have been coming since Super Bowl weekend 2011 so we celebrated their 10th consecutive trip to the Oasis!! A slightly smaller group this year due to the Covid, the 10 guys fished on x 3 boats:
The trip started strong with good fishing, the Captain Hook had the best of it staying inshore while we looked for better bigger things and found a good late afternoon bite on the first day. With the good fishing the goal was to break 1400 releases for their 10 trips here, we fell 11 short with the bite slowing on their last day out.
Good times as usual with these guys they ended up with 93 sailfish released and 2 blue marlin and a few mahi’s making their 10 year total 1389 billfish released. Ending with the Super Bowl on Sunday night…
These guys have over the years raised money for projects at the local school in Buena Vista and it has been outstanding what they have achieved through it. A big thanks to them and their generosity!
With the new CDC ruling of needing a negative Covid test before boarding your flight back to the USA we have been getting Dr’s from a clinic come to the Lodge to perform the test. We have also tested all the staff here at the Lodge and on the boats and everyone has returned negative results.
