Guatemala, Tijereta Late February Report

Capt. David Showell
February 24, 2011
Puerto San Jose - Saltwater Fishing Report

February 25, 2011, It sounds like Capt. Gerry has had his hands full fishing since his last report. Even though the sailfish numbers haven't been at the historic level there has been a great mixed bag and lots of action. He has even busier than normal since he is jumping form coast to coast to fish the Caribbean quite a bit as well. If you do want the ultimate fishing trip and you have some time the possibility of a full blown two coast safari is always there and Gerry can lead you the whole way.

Hey Capt. David!,
As we wind down this month , the sailfish have been sparse and finicky, but we have managed to release one or two out of a handful raised just about every day! But there have been plenty of dorado and skipjack, and even the marlin are still making daily appearances! The weather has been just fine with only an occasional day or two of choppy conditions. Lots of whale sightings on the trips and as you will see, some large mantarays are in the area. Even an occasional wahoo in the 40lb class. Stuck out a big kona on a 50 conventional day before yesterday, and it yielded a beautiful bull dorado to start us off! Fast trolling at 12 mph , what a slam!
Hope you and yours get a chance to come down this season........the waters fine!!!
Capt. Gerry

Oh! and lest I forget, the fishing on the Puerto Barrios side (Caribbean) has been good for grouper and sizable mutton snapper as this is the time of year when they gather out in the great barrier reef of Belize. Not much action on tarpon yet, but good bonefish and permit on the fly to be had!
Gerry did send me a couple of video files which I haven't been able to open yet. If I do I will get them where you can see them.

Puerto San Jose Fishing Forecast:

There is still plenty of great Sailfishing to come this season, actually the season in Guatemala never ends. The Semana Santa is a busy time so book now if you want to get out on the water.

Target Species:

Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado, Tuna, Wahoo

More Fishing Reports:


Everyone knows that Guatemala is the #1 spot for Sailfish anda great location for all types of billfishing, up to now it has been a rich mans game and beyond the means of the adverage angler. The Parlama Sportfishing fleet specializes in economical fishing that will make your dreams possible. The "Tijereta" is the flagship. It is only 25' long, but it has been retrofitted to make it a fantastic mini-batlewagon and perfect for fishing Guatemala's calm waters.
