Set the Hook on this World Class Trip
This 23rd Annual Open House vendor spotlight is on Casa Vieja Lodge in Guatemala where the World Class fishing reigns supreme with World Class fleet and crews. Wes, Mary Ann and many friends have years of firsthand knowledge that the staff at Casa Vieja know how to indulge anglers with unequaled comfort and five-star service.
At the auction, you will have an opportunity to bid on the billfishing trip of a lifetime at Casa Vieja Lodge in Guatemala! Few locations in the world have had the number of headlines in the sportfishing community as the “Top Billfishing Destination” as Guatemala’s Pacific Coast. Since its sportfishing discovery in the late 90’s it has consistently produced record numbers of sailfish, marlin (blue, black, and striped), and pelagic gamefish such as dolphin and yellowfin tuna.
In 2022, Casa Vieja’s fleet had 20,985 billfish raises and anglers released a total of 12, 484 billfish during their season. Anglers here can expect to raise 12-15 billfish per day, per boat, year-round. Your fishing adventure will start aboard the Finest Kind, a 40’ Whiticar, updated with the latest Simrad electronics, Cummins Engines, and an AC cabin to cool off if you can take a break from the spectacular fishing. With a full complement of the finest in conventional, spinning, and fly gear there’s no need to haul any gear down. Guatemala’s tranquil year-round waters make it the ideal location for novice and expert anglers alike.
Casa Vieja Lodge will be your home for your three-night stay, valid April through November 2023 or 2024. Its manicured gardens, soothing swimming pool, and a full bar for those exotic libations far exceeds the expectations of any traveling angler. This package includes VIP airport transfers, all gourmet meals, and two full days of incredible fishing for two anglers. This trip is being generously donated by Casa Vieja Lodge Owners, David & Kristen Salazar.
