Aug 5,6,7 We were joined by 4-time repeat client Tom Tomfohdre along with Son Rick and Grandson Derek. The Tomfohdres slammed the sails. They raised 62 sails and released 29
including a perfectly scripted finish on the 3rd day when they recorded a triple hook up to end a great trip to Sailfish Bay.

From Tom Tomfohdre:
""I have come down to Sailfish Bay in January the last 4 years. I visit with a group of buddies at that time. I have been very anxious to get my son and grandson to Sailfish Bay. There are not many opportunities for a Grandfather to fish with a 15-year old boy because of school and sports commitments. I was so pleased being able to get the boys down to Guatemala this August. We fished for 3 days and released 29 sails. That does not sound like a slow season to me! This was a dream trip for me in being able to share it with loved ones. I can't even express the joy that followed. The very first catch of the very first day was a double. I sat back and watched my son and grandson do battle with 100 lb. sailfish at the same time. It gets better. The very last catch on the very last day was a triple! So there we are on the back of the boat - Grandfather, Son, and Grandson all hooked up on sailfish. I could not have written a better script myself."

Aug 8,9,10 Steve Heggeness, daughter
Hansine Heggeness, and Russell Lavery tried their hand at Big Game Fishing in Guatemala.
The first day out they raised 16 sails and
released 8 on conventional bait. The next 2 days went after the sails on fly. Two sails were released the final day and each day numerous dorado were caught.
