The sail fish bite really heated up this past week with boats raising 80-120 sail per day and many boats releasing 80 or more fish per day.  The bite was so spectacular some boats ran out of ballyhoo for bait and switch and came in a bit early!!!  The marlin bite did taper off a little bit but still many blue marlin were raised and some had releases on the fly as well as conventional tackle.

Sailfish vs Marlin | Guatemala Deep Sea Fishing | Mad Marlin

Iztapa Guatemala is the best spot in the world for a sail fishing trip but we catch and release a large number of  marlin as well.

Sport fishermen often prefer to target our vast marlin populations on light tackle or on the fly.  When fishing for marlin we make adjustments in trolling speeds, locations, and teasers and lures.  Marlin prefer faster trolling speeds of 10 or more knots.

One Sailfish On The Fly And You're Addicted

Fly fishing in Guatemala using the bait and switch technique for marlin and sailfish technique is truly an exhilarating experience, particularly when you are targeting huge sail fish and "pez marlin".  It is an absolute certainty that one will never forget the day that he or she released their first bill fish on a fly rod.  Successfully catching and releasing a big game fish on the fly is quite an accomplishment and one  that most anglers will never experience, but our professional bilingual captains and crews have a well-earned reputation of success with regard to salt water fly fishing.  Many consider it to be an exotic big game fishing trip to target monster bill fish with on-the-fly.  We consider it just another exciting day of adventure on the tranquil Pacific Ocean having loads of fun with our new fishing friends.

Bait And Switch | Sail Fishing School | Mad Marlin

Guatemala sail fish and marlin are abundant, typically giving anglers many shots per day at a trophy bill fish.  Guatemalan captains and mates are among the most experienced in the world with the bait and switchtechnique.   Sailfish and marlin are teased  to the back of the boat and anglers pitch a bait to them while the mate simultaneously pulls the teaser away.  The excitement of this technique is virtually indescribable and is highly addictive even to experienced big game fishermen.  The highly-effective fishing technique works well whether you are billfishing on the fly, or using typical conventional gear.  It is easily taught to even even the most inexperienced anglers.  We encourage our clients to be as involved in the entire process as they want to be.  Our charter captains put a priority on seeing that our fishermen get everything they desire from their all-inclusive fishing vacation in Guatemala.  Our crews are all excellent patient teachers.   We routinely raise so many sailfish, blue marlin, black marlin, and dorado that it is no big deal if you miss a few until you get the hang of it! By the end of your fist day fishing with the Mad Marlin team you should feel like a professional tournament sportfisherman (or fisherwoman)!  So now that I am politically correct, I must say that it anecdotally seems that the ladies and kids learn the proper bait and switch technique faster that we men do.

Guatemala  Beats Costa Rica And Panama Sail Fishing

 

Guatemala charter boats catch and release so many sailfish "pez vela" each year that Guatemala is now known as the sailfish capitol of the world.  Puerto de San Jose Guatemala clearly trumps Costa Rica as the world's best sail fishingdestination.  Many salt water sportfishing articles have been written and documentaries filmed about the world class sportfishing in this tiny Central American fishing paradise.  Writers for Marlin Magazine, The Discovery Channel, Outdoor Channel,  & Salt Water Sportsman are but a few of the many professional outdoor journalists raving about the first class sport fishing in Guatemala.
