Long established as the premier destination for Sailfish, Guatemala is fast building a reputation also for Blue Marlin.

The productive waters already hold records for numbers of billfish including most in a day on conventional (124) and on the fly (57).as well as most in a season. The same factors that attract such numbers of Sailfish also contribute to the catch rates of Blue Marlin interspersed with Black Marlin at times.
Because the fleet have not regularly targeted the Marlin, it is largely unknown as to the full potential but we do have experience over past seasons of most boats raising at least one fish per day when the runs have been on.
