We went to Guatemala fishing again in December. The fishing was epic, in three days we caught and released 73 pacific sailfish, and a blue marlin. On the surf the past couple of days we have had skate, dogfish, and few bluefish. We will be closing for the season on Jan. 1st and will re-open March 1st.
We are still catching some trout, black and red drum, sea mullet, and bluefish on the surf. Water temp is 55 degrees. We still have our sale going on till Christmas. Everything marked down below cost.

OCEAN: Fishing success improved this previous week after a very slow period before hand mostly due to the weather element. Activity levels were very low offshore out of Hatteras, the few that went were rewarded very well with limits of king mackerel and citation size wahoo and blackfin tuna. Scattered catches of dolphin, yellowfin tuna, little tunny, and triggerfish added to the bounty. No nearshore activity was reported. Offshore anglers fishing via Oregon Inlet had improved success as well, no particular species were caught in high numbers but diversity was good with citation size wahoo and blackfin tuna being most notable, king mackerel, dolphin, and assorted sharks were also caught in moderation. No nearshore activity reported at this location also.
INLETS/SOUNDS/BAYS: Fishing inshore in the South region has recovered nicely with red drum of all sizes being caught including high numbers of over-slot giants being released, moderate amounts of spotted seatrout and small bluefish made for some good table fare. Anglers in the Northern area have been concentrating on striped bass for the most part with limits caught about half of the time, bluefish and dogfish sharks were caught in moderation along with a host of others in low amounts.
BEACH/PIERS: The red drum catches continue to be good with adverse weather conditions yielding plenty of over-slot giants for those braving the elements. Anglers in the South beach region also caught plenty of bluefish in the 1-2lb range along with moderate amounts of both black drum and sea mullet. Northern beach catches were similar with the addition of moderate amounts of spotted seatrout of all sizes.
