Tip of the Month?

Anyone have a fishing tip, location, lure, bait or other information they would like to share?  Send me the information and I'll post it here.

We left Miami on March 24 and fished March 25, 26, 27 and returned to Miami March 28, 2014.  The season for bill fishing in Guatemala is from November through May.


Our all up coast per person for air fare, ground transportation accommodation, meals, fishing and tips was $5000.00 each. The cost was all inclusive


We hooked up 94 fish in three days of fishing, landed 72 sailfish, 80 to 110# 4-Dorado 40 to 60# and 2 Yellow fin Tuna each at 45#


The other three anglers were friends of mine, Bob Leonard, Van Stockwell and Les Patzer.
