Jan 15 - Mar 15, 2017  Guatemala Great Times

First I would like to say thanks to everyone for fishing in Guatemala with me. Fishing was world class on the super panga Sea Angel. Only one group with two days of three with slow fishing. So many whales, crazy big whale shark right at the boat for 15 minutes. Also, lots of Stripe Marlin for over a month after I got there. I think the best group fishing in three days was we raised 62 and released 31. Awesome teaser bites, and pitch baits from the old bucket. So many new guys, thanks so much. Regulars thanks. I feel I have at least 3 completely new groups that will be regulars each year now. The picture makes me look small, but we had some kinda large fishing days. Cheers, Capt Mike

Normally the wahoo fishing could not be better than this time of the year, but we have had some good days and slow ones. Usually at least get a mix of wahoo, blackfin, mahi mahi, and a sailfish. Bottom digging is super as normal. Groupers, Snappers, ect. Just have to find the calm days. Thanks to all, Capt Mike
