By far the best fishing trip I have been on. All aspects of this trip were better than I anticipated right from the start. Flying from NY City to Guatemala was a breeze with a 50 min.Layover in Atlanta,just enough time to stretch our legs and get a cup of mud. When we landed in Guatemala Captain Chris was waiting with a cooler loaded with ice cold Gallo beer. The 2 hour ride to the coast was a pleasure with Chris interesting facts about the country and stoping to show us a few sights?
When we arrived at his fishing house their was appetizers waiting and along with an inviting swimming pool. An hour or so later his cook served an amazing dinner of locale fare. I must say the food was fantastic the entire trip,but one meal will stand out for a long time to come. While on our way to our fishing destination on the first day we stopped to explore a log floating about 25 miles out and caught 3 Dorado, soon after one of the mates served up raw fish with raw onions soy sauce and wasabi. The best sushi I ever had.
The first day if fishing yielded 4 sails,3 dorados , second day we got 7 sails, 6 yellow fin tuna and the third day we got 10 sails, 8 yellow fins, that doesn't include the fish we lost throughout the trip.
This guy will not let you down, he fished hard and long and we were rewarded with plenty of fish and memories.
I will be going back for sure .
