JOHN & ANN PRICE

Ann’s first ever sailfish, one of a double header

March 16-17. John has fished Guatemala since 1994, that’s some history and it was awesome to fish with him. In 2 days John and Ann raised 63 sailfish getting 41 to bite. Some tough to convert bites, with a lot of bait out there the sails were more in predatory instinct than eating mode….

A couple of big mahi’s as well and a great time had by all.

 

STRYKER GROUP

March 14-16 fishing aboard Sirena the first day and Intensity for the next 2 this crew had a blast with 24 sailfish released and several nice mahi’s in the bin.

That’s a wicked shot…..

 

SPRING BREAKERS…..

March 13-15. Cool to fish with the next generation coming through. Aboard Allure II and Makina, mixing it up between conventional tackle and the fly this crew raised 93 sailfish and released 53 as well as plenty of large mahi’s and 5 yellowfin tunas.

Awesome trip for the guys with plenty of stills, video as well as a couple of drones we’re looking forward to sharing their vid here soon….

1st class lunch.

 

MICHAEL LANE GROUP

Capt Michael Lane, Gary Jones, Lee Doehring and Hunter Lane

March 11-12 we caught up with Michael and Hunter Lane for the first time in 3 years. This time introducing Gary Jones and Lee  Doehring to Guatemala.

They went 33 from 58 bites on sailfish, a blue marlin for Lee and 11 large mahi’s all in the 25lb-35lb class. Great 2 days on the water.

Found this late on their first day, at 1:15pm they were 3 for 7 on sailfish, by 3:45pm and time to head to the dock they finished up with 20 from 34. A great afternoon bite!

LONNIE JOHNSTON GROUP

Buddy Collins, Lonnie Johnston, James Guinn, Jared Robinson, Justin Ardoin, Stuart Guin and Brandon Hays.

March 2-3 for their first trip to Guatemala fishing aboard Allure II and Capt Hook the above group from Louisiana were blown away by the sailfish bite here.

Over 2 days they released 63 sailfish from plenty of bites that included double headers and triples. Good time had and they’re re-booking for next year. That says it all….

That’s a fatty for Brandon…..

The theme these past 2 weeks has been bait, balls of bait, shearwaters and booby’s picking, sailfish and plenty of XL mahi’s feeding along with tunas, porpoise, spinners and whales. A lot of life out there. Still a few openings in April, get down and get into it, contact:
