Guatemala...Back and Firing on all cylinders!!!

Jan. 9th was the start of a fishing slump for the
waters off Guatemala, and the search was on for the
next mother load. The search took the Release, who was
pleased to entertain Bill Boyce and his filming crew,
to the outskits of our normal fishing area on the 10th
of Jan. and for the ensuing couple of days. The mother
load was not to be found, in fact fishing got slower.
Boyce's three days shoot saw 15 sails raised, 8 of
which were caught on light tackle, down to 8lb test,
and two marlin raised, one of which was a 225lb. Black
which was caught on 20lb. test. Now, this my sound
like pretty good fishing to some, but our repeat
clients understand that this is slow for Guatemalan
standards. The slow fishing continued until Jan. 25th
when the Intensity and Spindrift both returned to the
dock raising over 20 sails a piece. I took this
opportunity to take my folks Bill and Barbara Sheeder
fishing the next day, an opportunity that doesn't seem
to come around as often as it could. Our half day of
fishing ended with 12 releases, 3 of which came in the
form of a triple which I came down off the bridge to
help hook and catch along side my parents, GREAT
DAY!!! The Canaso, Intensity, and Spindrift finished
the day, all raising between 35 to 50 sails! YES!!!
the fish ARE back!
If you like to check out Bill Boyce's new show and the footage shot on the Release, you can check it
out. We will announce the airing date.
Tight lines,
Capt. Chris Sheeder
