Sailfish aren't the only fish in Guatemala

January 27, 2011 Getting reports out of Captain Gerry can be like pulling teeth, actually it has been a little slow especially on the customer end. For the most part the sailfish bite has been farther offshore, but Gerry assures me that the weather and the water are coming into the regular "Verano" attitude which means that they are calmer and the blue water will continually work it's way closer to the beach. This should set up a fantastic fishery for the next few months. He has had some good activity on the Caribbean side however where he runs trips out of the Rio Dulce and heads for the southern end of the Keys of Belize where there is a variety of fishing. Here's a picture of a typical Grouper. Keep an eye on this site for complete information. I do have a good collection of pictures to post and will have a separate page soon. For now see all the basics at http://www.parlama.con Now here is what Capt. Gerry had to say for himself:

Just a short message about the fishing this month! The sailfish have been steady and fairly offshore for the fleet, with some days getting up into the 20+ release area, and a few dorado to boot. The fishing has moved in a little here at the end of the month, with a good cut line about 25 miles offshore.
On the other front, in the Guatemalan Caribbean, the latest trips have shown good catches of large grouper and a whale shark sighting while out on the reef edge. This time the whale shark was surrounded not by his usual escort of big eye tuna, but a larger bait fish(@ 12-15 inches) which looked like a mullet with a blue back but not exactly. Not sure what it was , but the grouper had smaller ones in the gut. Hope your cold winter isn't damping down your spirits up there! Weather continues to be mild and beautiful down here! If just a bit slow on the visitors front!
Tight lines ....
Capt. Gerry

It has taken quite a bit of effort to get the fishing vacation packages together that Captains Dennis, Gerry and myself are satisfied with, but it is coming together. We are looking for the best choices especially in variety and value in addition to prices. I will go into this in much more detail later, but the option of working completely out of Antigua is more and more appealing. One thing that makes it easy is that since Capt. Gerry lives in Antigua and goes down the hill every day any way he will take up to four customers both ways for only $20 each. The ride is almost exactly one hour thru the mountains between the volcanoes and across the tropical coastal plain with some of the greatest scenery I have ever seen. We also have great airport connections so if you can put together a group of three anglers we can pick you up at the airport take you to Antigua, spend four nights and three days fishing on the "Tijereta" with breakfast and lunch included for $900 a person. I did not include the dinners because Antigua is such a great tourist town with such a variety of restaurants and night life that you will want to experience something different every night. Personally I suggest that you give the Steak Houses a try. Guatemalan Beef on the "Churrasco" is something that must be experienced.
