The fishing day routine…..
We fish out of Puerto Quetzal, Escuintla, Guatemala. Boats are based at 'Marina Pez Vela'
Breakfast 6:20am and the driver is ready to take you to the Marina promptly at 6:45 AM. Leave the dock 7am and return 5pm. If you are late, it will cut in to fishing time as the boat always returns at 5pm.
Often you will be meeting the party after you at ‘The Billfish Inn’. Lodge Hostess and staff will greet you with cocktails. There is a strong culture among the Sportfishing fleet to fish 7am-5pm. Two reasons, safety and second to establish a limit on time spent fishing since such high numbers of fish are caught. You will fish anywhere from 8 miles out to 50 miles out. Typically 20 odd miles……… You primarily fish for Sailfish, they range in size from 60 pounds to 150 pounds, most will be in the 75-100 pound range.
Blue, Black and Striped Marlins are possible. It is likely you will catch a few Dorado (Mahi-Mahi) and may catch a few small Yellow-fin Tuna.
Driver will be waiting at the marina to take you back to the Villa. The routine will make you feel like ‘I’m 10 and at CAMP’!
Then you repeat the whole series of events, Happy Hour, Dinner, go to bed, breakfast, and fish…..
Happy Hour is poolside, so swim trunks could be handy. Happy Hour, Dinner and Breakfast will be at your Villa at 'The Billfish Inn'.
Happy Hour is poolside, so swim trunks could be handy. Happy Hour, Dinner and Breakfast will be at the House. A great lunch will be prepared aboard the boat.
