The Hook Fishing Experience

Guatemala is one of the largest breeding grounds for Pacific sailfish and boasts one of the highest concentrations of sails in the world. Along Guatemala’s Pacific coast, strong currents moving east from Mexico collide with currents moving west from El Salvador, creating an enormous natural occurring eddy, rich in bait and pelagic fish, making it a haven for sailfish, marlin, dorado, tuna, and many other species.

Year after year Guatemala has consistent numbers of rises, bites and releases, all recorded and reported, backed up with testimonials from satisfied anglers that agree we are the Sailfish Capital of the World. A quick search on the Internet, Media and Press will provide figures that say pretty much the same thing: catches of over 25 sailfish per day are common, double and triple hookups are common, on average between 15 and 22 sailfish are caught and released per boat, per day; Fishing is hot year round! Conservative numbers estimated by local boat captains report between 1000 and 1400 sailfish are caught and released, per boat, per year, using conventional tackle and bait.
