It may be St. Patricks Day…………

This Guatemala fishing report is for the week ending
March 17th 2009 and is prepared by The Great Sailfishing Company
operating out of the new Pez Vela Marina.

Yes - it may be Saint Patrick's Day - but we are pleased to report that the water in Guatemala is not green!

We reported last week how a stream of weather fronts had pushed green water close into shore, which had been causing us some difficulties in finding consistent concentrations of bait and the predators that feed on them. Since then, the weather has been kind to us, and we have had consistent warm days and calm seas that have enabled the blue water to push in and drive that nasty colder green water to one side.

If you take a look at the geography of the region, it is easy to see how the currents coming down from Mexico collide with the coastline and reflect back to form huge eddies that attract and hold large quantities of bait. These fast moving currents mean that water conditions - in particular the location of blue water - can change dramatically in as little as 48 hrs…..so even when the fishing has been tough going, as it was towards the end of last month, there is always hope that tomorrow could be an angling bonanza !

We have had several groups visiting us this past couple of weeks from the Northern States - glad to be out of the cold and the snow for a week or so - basking in the sunshine. An opportunity to rid the system of those winter bugs and microbes that linger far too long and cause the sniffling and blocked up noses !
I read this past week with some envy that Great White Sharks are about the healthiest animals on the planet - they have natural antibodies that make them immune to just about every bacterium known to science, they are also immune to cancer ! Seems to me that they should go and live in North Dakota for a while and see how they get on instead !

The fishing for these groups has been consistent at about 30 miles from the dock, and have been raising in the high teens of billfish per boat per day. Still a lot of Blue Marlin around - which is great news, as we usually anticipate if anything, the Marlin bite to pick up from here at this time of the season.

How is the scuba diving there ?

We go to Costa Rica to fish / dive but always looking for a new place to try.
