Guatemala "Verano" Sailfishing Season has Begun

Capt. David Showell
January 31, 2011
Puerto San Jose - Saltwater Fishing Report

January 30, 2011, Capt. Dennis has been busy keeping the fleet running like the well oiled machine that he demands and hasn't had much time to get his angle in on the reports. Finally everything is coming together and it looks great for the best of the season. Not only are the next few months the most consistent fishing of the year, but it also translates into the best weather throughout the country and the best time to visit all of Guatemala's wonders. And to top it all of Semana Santa falls in Late April and that is the big vacation time for the Guatemalan population. So besides the boats he is keeping the bakery, "Dona Luisa Xicotencatl" in Antigua running as well.

Dennis deserves a break and now that we're running on course he is taking a vacation in February, but everything in taken care of by Capt. Gerry, the other Captains and the Parlama manager Sergio Alfaro who is always available at Marina Pez Vela office for last minute reservations or questions. (502) 5709-8697.

As I mentioned in my last report "Verano" is arriving in Guatemala and the fishing is coming with it. Here are the few lines Capt. Dennis did manage to send me:

I am trying to get all boats operational this week because I am off on vacation the month of Feb. I don't want the captains and crew to have to deal with this stuff. The fishing has started to really pop. Big numbers as close as 5 miles offshore. Catching fish and watching whales cruise by is what is happening right now. I will be out tomorrow on Tijereta and will send you a report.


So the BITE IS ON and I hope Dennis and Gerry remember their cameras so I can really get to show how good it is! It really is hard to sit here and write this when outside my window is snow and ice and right about now 8:49 Atlantic City Time, 7:49 Marina Pez Vela time Dennis is dropping lines in calm, blue Pacific Ocean waters.

Puerto San Jose Fishing Forecast:

With the Blue water headed in towards the beach the fishing will only get better and should hold until the rainy seson starts sometime in May

Target Species:

Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado, Dolphin, Tuna

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.
