Awesome pics and write up and pics Doc. Looking forward to the wife joining you and Jr. to probably catch anything bigger than you 2 combined!
You know how the better half operates!

Glad y'all had a great time today and it wouldn't surprise me if the best is yet to come. Mom and I are having a ball being entertained by our 20 month old granddaughter. Her new Bubba is due in 3wks.

Hygiene and hair will work themselves out

School and hunting will stick with him for life

BTW I would wear my hair in pigtails if someone would take me fishing like that

Junior is up and ready!



Little doc drinking a latte and telling us how to fish!!!!

Talked to the captain for our boat last night. He says the fly fishing hasnít been great with most of the sails not aggressively following the teasers. I told him we wa ged to catch fish today and didnít care how it happened. I have a fly rod on board Be we are targeting everything and throwing it all. I want to see how these little people hold up to 5-10 big fish a piece..no matter what, we are fishing, they have beer and I made a playlist!!!!

Hey doc, thanks for taking us along. We just got back from Cabo and the gf is really wanting to fish again this year. Where are y'all staying down in Guatemala? All inclusive spot or just a resort? Interested in details if you get a chance

Not a resort and not on the beach. It's a great all inclusive fishing lodge in a world class sailfish location.

We had the day you come to Guatemala for today!!!!
42 sailfish raises
21 sailfish
8 mahi-mahi caught(big ones!!!!)

We went meat haul with conventional tackle. I hooked about 3/4 of the fish. Had fun running the baits, teasing fish, freespooling baits to them, loading the outriggers and setting flat lines. Way more fun for me than just sitting and being passed a rod. Even caught bait on a sabiki rig.
