“The fishing trip to Guatemala held at Casa Vieja Lodge exceeded all expectations. I enjoyed meeting my fellow anglers and the 4 instructors. The Lodge, staff, boat captains and crew were of the highest standard. The fishing included marlin, sailfish, dorado and yellowfin tuna up to 90#. I wish to give a shoutout to Jennifer Dudas, the organizer of the event who was always available to ensure that every angler’s expectations were met.”

Having the instructors on board is a huge plus no matter your experience level. Learning from their experience makes is all that much more special of a trip. By fishing a different boat each day and a different instructor each day almost assures you will see and hear something new to help grow your experience level. Highly recommend.”
