Guatemala Fishing at Sailfish Bay Lodge

Two Countries, Two Unique Fisheries, ONE Trip


After setting up a few trips last week for clients to combo Guatemala billfish action and Belize flats fishing on the same trip we thought we would send it out as an opportunity for other anglers. The timeframe for this combo is Oct 1 - Nov 15, 2009 and here's why it was so attractive to the others:

1. You have great fishing in both destinations and
2. You save a bundle by capitalizing on Belize's 2 For 1 Pricing and Sailfish Bay's Special Package Rates during this period.

Belize - October/November Fishing - Lots of resident tarpon, large and aggressive. Some of the bigger bonefish are released in October. Big schools of jack crevalle are also on the flats now and it is a good month for the larger permit of the season. Reef fishing is fair to good. If there is some rainfall on the mainland, snook arrive on the flats in large numbers. The lodge record for the most tarpon landed in a single day was had in October with 7 tarpon landed and another 5 jumped.

Guatemala - October/November Fishing
Sailfishing begins to heat up nicely in the month of October as we move out of the rainy season. Scrolling through our fishing reports for the last several years suggests clearly that the biggest dorado of the year are caught during this time and there are plenty of them. Also, good quantities of tuna are still around and we feel October - December is the best, most consistent marlin time in Guatemala.
