I'm back (from the trip of a lifetime)

I'm back from a 4 day fishing trip in Guatemala, and catching up on forum posts and messages. I hope everyone has been well. I've got a full report coming up and lots of go pro footage to sift through and edit. Spoiler alert: 24 Sailfish released and one Blue Marlin!

    Between 3 anglers, over 3 days, yes.
    And the boat captains said the first 2 days were slow compared to their usual rate!

    Not this time. I was fishing aboard 35ft Contenders and a 40ft Gamefisherman (looks like a Cabo).
    I felt very out of place as I was the second youngest angler at the lodge and keenly aware that, had I not been invited, I might not have been able to afford such a trip.

    Report goes up today and video clips will be coming in as I edit them towards end of week.

    Glad to hear that you had a fun productive trip....since this is the NMZ should be looking for the posts under a different area ?

    Welcome Back! Saw the report, excuse the over used cliche but "Ephin Epic". Good for you! for some of us trips like that don't come around that often, glad you had a good time.

    Thanks!
    There's a bit of "pics or it didn't happen" bias on this site, so I will spend a few hours tomorrow editing video footage to share with everyone.
