  1. Hi – I am looking to book a 2 day billfish trip for myself only. Please advise the best months as to when fishing Marlin and Sailfish is at its best, as well as during the dry season. My thinking is that October and November are ideal. I have not been to the continent and as for experience, I have only hooked on sailfish in the Yucatan last year while seeking Marlin. I am ONLY interested in billfish.

  2. Good day, i am just starting fishing for Marlin out of Pomene.
    Would you please be so kind and give some pointers. Were do I start and hoe do I go about?
    Would really appreciate your help. Kind regards, Stef
