Come to Guatemala for some great sail fishing!

I have been out for fishing - great time. For me as an allergic to all sea food it was kind of difficult to understand why I should go fishing. But being introduced to catch and release, spending a day on the boad and fighting with some fish...I consider myself already as addicted... Here some reasons why you should take the opportunity of a fishing trip to Guatemala.

Guatemala has one of the worlds largest concentration of sailfish, the average for fishing is 20 or more sailfish per day, there are opportunities to catch blue marlin, black marlin, tuna and dorado. You can find large pods of sailfish between 2 and 50 miles from port. Which is really no distance at all compared to other spots in the world. You can even enjoy the sight of some dolphins close to shore out of your beach residence.

The best seasons to visit Guatemala for this sport are November to May, but you will still find action all year round; by law, Guatemala mandates the use of circle hooks while billfishing and all billfish are catch and release, both laws are supported by Fishing International.

In front of the Pacific coast of Guatemala it usually doesn't take long to get a sailfish to rise and during the peak fishing season an angler or group of anglers might have several sailfish interested in the teasers and lures at the same time. It is not uncommon to have two (double) or three (triple) sailfish hooked at the same time.

If you like to catch big fish, local sailfish usually weight between 70 to 120 pounds and sometimes go absolutely crazy when they are hooked, they jump, dive, and swim towards and away from the boat, sometimes they try to jump into the boat, you can imagine the maneuvers some sailfish are bound to attempt. When marlin appear, one mate reels in all sailfish lines, the mate in charge of the marlin rod will cast the mackerel into the water while the captain maneuvers the boat closer to the fish, mean while, the angler straps into the fighting chair. Local marlins weight around 350 to 600 pounds and are pretty fast, they dive and jump, and while the angler is reeling in line, figuring out where the fish went, what looks like another marlin jumping off in the distance is actually there fish! You must have a strong grip because they are large strong fish.

Guatemala is catch and release for billfish so any sailfish and marlin you catch will be returned to the sea, photographs will assure anyone the billfish was THIS BIG! If you catch a dorado, it is used to make “Ceviche”, which is a local specialty, or sandwiches and cooked fish are served as lunch, right on board...ok, not for me!

The current record is "over 80 sailfish caught and released in one day". This record was set in February 2003 in Guatemala.

All this adventure isn’t far from the city, a drive from Guatemala city airport to a first class resort with air conditioned rooms, pools, restaurants, etc. takes about 90 minutes. The marina has a restaurant, and a formal dock witch is equipped with a variety of boats such as tiburoneras, panfas, sport fishing yatches, etc.

Sport netDispatch Beijing time on January 10, advocate with 109: 75 get the better of 34 minutes 81 madly, wide those who sufferred public opinion and the Jiangsu of accurate rich and powerful family that fan condemns to walk out of a contest gradually [url=http://wholesalenikeshoes.manifo.com/]wholesale nike shoes[/url] eventually is low fan, results 3 Lian Sheng. And although the Hu Xuefeng that regards team exterior line as core takes below 9 minutes only, but the ability that he shows him again however like 8 secondary attack like gold then, still have 4 backboard 2 times to be grabbed, CBA all-round king sets sail again.
81 what face imposing manner to be decreased greatly, na Gang engine activationed with his overall performance full-court, not only the help is great the Tang Dynasty chop below 22 minutes not common military successes, the fine that Yili also receives Hu Xuefeng for many times with Meng Da is accurate clever pass, relaxed and procurable. And 1 smooth secondary attack in as contrapuntal as him 81 brunt king more those who show is inferior by comparison, and the 3rd when kickback in 81 preparation, he hits the target with 3 minutes make adversary complete quit the race, wang Zhe's gas display one's talent for the first time.
After be team head to drive a record, hu Xuefeng's feel is not very good, so he puts major energy in secondary attack to mix defend on, the breakthrough that uses oneself comes to those who attract adversary defend, send the ball easily next, wh whoever notchs is problem of a feel only. This one action makes 81 planted agent hopeless, after time-tested, jiangsu head section preceded 8 minutes.
Fight closely of the 2nd two teams is more intense, at that time Hu Xuefeng stood again, hu Xuefeng breaks a ball to grow pass Yi Li, the basket on latter hits the target, this notchs also let spirit of Jiangsu whole group be invigorated for it, difference of the cent after reserves enter the court also pulls bigger more. 81 initiated in the 3rd strike back, hit for a time 5: Of 0 notch climax, line of Dan Huxue peak base ambuscades, shot the heart nest of 81 3 minutes, the match also entered rubbish time early, and be in this one he takes below 5 minutes of 5 secondary attack.
Before experiencing competition low fan, he and big the Tang Dynasty cooperate also gradually tacit, although all data of 12 minutes is driven far not 18.9 minutes of before last sports season, but cacique temperament of Hu Xuefeng is shown incisively and vividly, jiangsu lacks accurate secondary attack mixes his essence to be grabbed crucially most now, even if is the Harvey that will return to, also want to be made from the reserve, see complexion act of Hu Xuefeng.
Adjust team, get ready wait for hair, CBA all-round king is taking Jiangsu to set sail again.
