The Results are in for the Presidential Challenge of Guatemala

Team OBX Repeats as PCCA Guatemala Winners!

Billfishing is always unpredictable. No one can say with any certainty whether the fish will bite or not during a given period and despite the best intentions, even the world’s finest destinations can turn cold. But the anglers of the 2012 Presidential Challenge of Guatemala managed to persevere despite the tough fishing conditions. Maybe it was the extra cocktail or two after dinner, or a good laugh shared with a new friend, but at least the fun was plentiful during the week. 

And when the fishing is this challenging it’s important to make every shot count. That was the key to victory in this year’s event for Team OBX, fishing with Capt. Chris Sheeder on the Rum Line. The team of Dell  Dembosky,

Team OBX, winners of the PCCA Guatemala tournament.

  Mike Viveiros and Craig Johnson missed just two sailfish bites during their three days of tournament fishing, emerging victorious for the second year in a row in this tournament with 1,200 points and 12 sailfish releases.  
In second place, the Day One leaders on the Release with Capt. Chico Alvarenga, Team Priority: Hans Kaspersetz, Jim McCord, Ed Arnold and Herbert Merryweather. They scored a nice marlin release on Day Two and picked away at the sails, finishing with 1,000 points from seven sailfish releases and a marlin kicker. Gary Carter, Tim Mossberg and John Richardson rounded out the top three, fishing with Capt. Brad Phillips on the Decisive. They finished the tournament with 1,000 points and ten sailfish releases. Carter was the top daily angler on Day Three.

 

Dell Dembosky, Top Angler.

 In the angler standings, Dembosky had the hot hand almost from the start, vaulting himself into Top Angler status with 800 points. He was followed by Hans Kaspersetz from Team Priority with 600 points. Kaspersetz was aided by his blue marlin release on Day Two, the team’s only points for that day. In third was Dana Thomas, representing Team Pelese and fishing on the Makaira with Capt. Jason Brice, with 400 points. Thomas released a blue marlin and a sailfish to emerge as the top daily angler on the second day of fishing as well.

The PCCA Guatemala tournament also wrapped up the season-long points race for the Costa Grand Champion Team and Eagle Claw Grand Champion Angler awards. Winning the Costa Grand Champion Team was the Sea Angel, owned by Greg Angel. His team fished the PCCA Costa Rica and Papagayo Cup tournaments and tallied an impressive 3,500 points (teams must fish at least two Series tournaments in order to qualify). In second place was the Marc Stanley’s Pelese, with 3,300 points, followed by Team Priority in third with 2,400 points. In the Eagle Claw Grand Champion Angler standings, Marc Stanley was first place with 2,200 points and Austin Angel second with 1,900 points. Rounding out the top three was Hans Kaspersetz with 1,350 points..

 

The Presidential Challenge Conservation Series is an internationally-recognized tournament series with events in Costa Rica, Guatemala and Aruba. In 2012 alone the series raised in excess of $25,000 for The Billfish Foundation’s conservation initiatives and projects in Central America and throughout the world.

ADOPT-A-BILLFISH WRAPS UP TAGGING IN ARUBA
The second phase of the Adopt-A-Billfish white marlin satellite tagging program wrapped up recently in Aruba following the Chivas Regal Aruba Caribbean Cup. Dr. Eric Prince from NOAA, along with John Houlihan and Capt. Dan Kipnis were able to tag four large, healthy white marlin with pop-up satellite tags

during their days offshore. The tags are programmed to pop off after a set amount of time, sending their data to an orbiting satellite where it is then downloaded and studied by Dr. Prince and his scientific team. This information is crucial in unlocking the secrets of the white marlin, a billfish species about which little is known. The Presidential Challenge would like to thank Eric Mansur for his invaluable assistance in coordinating the Aruban boats for the tagging as well as Richard Eman for providing lodging for the tagging team at the Aruba Surfside Marina. Also, thanks to the Aruban government for their help in sponsoring a tag and for their hospitality during and after this year’s tournament.

Catamaran Fishing Boats – Exciting Features Revealed

One of its kind boats the Catamaran fishing boats have an interesting design and are basically two hulls set on a single frame. This type of boat has a very unique design. The construction is simple and you will notice that the desk present in the catamaran fishing boat sits in between the provided two hulls. Actually the fact is that these fishing boats have been recently added in Europe and the West. And also these boats have been in use from earlier times in the Eastern islands. Their design enables them to be fast and stable for fishing and also provides the boat a lower pitch during the moment in those rough seas.

Expert Author Abhishek Agarwal

These boats have a unique type of power or sail base. If you have to choose a boat between the two bases then it’s suggested to choose the sail based boats as they are mostly pleasure craft, where as its not the same with the catamaran power based boats. Their design enables them to have features not always available in traditional designs. Structure of these fishing boats is such that there are two hulls which gives more space for storing huge amount of fresh fishes. And also these spaces are provided with lockers for storage.

There are a variety of catamaran boats from rough water boats, to shallow water boats, even to inflatable ones and boats with alternative fuel option engines enabling you to select your favorite fuel.

Due to such wide variety of catamaran fishing boats you will have the choice of selecting boat of any size. And for the fisherman?s too there is wider choice in this boat category .fisherman can not only choose according to size but can also decide to have this boat based on the engine. Few of these fishing boats can carry couple of people and the other variety of boats in this category can be used to sail in deep sea and also that long haul ocean.

Fishing Panama’s Forgotten Coast

Categories: Caribbean, Fishing, Tourism

Published on: 2012/10/16

A vast Caribbean wonderland of rivers and reefs invites exploration by anglers.

Fishing Panama is mostly a very one-sided affair, that being its Pacific side. A number of fine fishing resorts on that coast offer world-class action, as is well known internationally.

Not surprisingly, few anglers who fly to Panama to fish these productive waters give the country’s Atlantic coast, to the north, a second thought. After several trips to fish Panama, its northern coast wasn’t on my radar screen either – until I happened to find tranquilobay.com. Seeing aerial photographs of the Caribbean Sea’s southernmost pocket, around Bocas del Toro, changed everything.

14 million tourists expected to visit Central America each year by 2020

from: http://news.co.cr/14-million-tourists-expected-to-visit-central-america-each-year-by-2020/15551/

Relying mainly on its geographical and cultural attractions, today Central America points to a dramatic growth in tourism, with some reports estimating that the number of foreign visitors will reach 14 million by 2020.

 

tourism in central america

 

According to reports by experts of the National Tourism Congress of Costa Rica and studies released on the Internet, in 2011 the region earned 3.6 percent of the total tourism earnings of the Americas.

Meanwhile, sources of the consulting and financial advisory services firm Deloitte Panama predicted that some 14 million tourists will visit Central America by 2020, nearly twice the average 7.9 million travellers received every year at present.

They added that this tourist growth in Central America is part of the global upward trend, mainly in emerging markets.

Some researchers consider that the success of tourism in Latin America in general relies on the travellers’ increasing interest in its culture, diversity of traditions and religions, beautiful landscapes and virgin nature.

Central America received eight million tourists last year and they brought 7.20 billion USD into the region; Costa Rica was the most visited country, followed by Panama, Guatemala and Nicaragua.

Premier Fishing In Nicaragua

From: Fishing :: Gigante Nicaragua.

 

Nicaragua is fast becoming one of the premier “frontier fishing” spots in the world. Long advertised as a surfer’s paradise, international fishermen are now exploring the abundant fisheries of Nicaragua. Your best bet to catch fish while you are in Gigante is to book a charter trip with one of the three charter operators who operate from Gigante Bay. See the listing of Charter Operators below.

Fishing in Nicaragua can vary greatly depending on the season. There are only two seasons: the Dry season from November thru May and the Rainy season from June thru October. Offshore winds blow constantly during the Dry season and the near shore water is generally clear but can be choppy if the winds are strong. The wind is generally offshore and less strong during the Rainy season but the river runoff from the rain can make near shore waters cloudy with silt. September and October are especially rainy due to the counter clockwise motion of tropical systems in the Pacific and Caribbean pulling moisture over the Southwest Nicaraguan coast. Land travel can be very difficult during these two months because the roads are very muddy and stream crossings are impassable.

Nicaragua is beginning to appear on the radar of travelers, with its natural beauty and old-fashioned charm that neither tourism nor internal strife has ruined. It’s a low-key, slow-moving Latin American culture, inexpensive to travel and live in, and is often referred to as “Costa Rica 30 years ago.” Nicaragua is easy to travel within and home to rich festivals and exciting outdoor adventures. From ash boarding down the side of one of the youngest (and active) volcanoes in the world, to scuba diving in the Little Corn Island – known for its remote, pristine beaches – along with the excitement of colonial towns such as Leon and Granada, in Nicaragua you can still travel under the radar.

Twin Vee expands its offerings of dual console to meet demands

Published on: 2012/07/21

From: Twin Vee Dual-Console Series – Features, Boat Reviews and Boat Tests – Boats.com.

Three models from Twin Vee combine tried-and-true twin-hull designs with twin-console decks.

 

The dual-console layout has grown in popularity in the past few years, so it’s no wonder Twin Vee decided to expand its offerings. These make for excellent family-fishing boats, since the second console adds protection for another passenger while the bow area gives the kids their own place to hang out, whether the rest of the family is water skiing or trolling for wahoo.

All are built with the usual Twin Vee construction methods: hulls made of hand-laid woven roving are filled with foam, fittings are stainless-steel, and fabrics are marine-grade vinyl. Fit and finish is not as nice as it is on some competing boats, but that’s one of the reasons why Twin Vees carry price tags that are notably lower than most competing boats. Note, for example, that the 22 Bay Cat DC starts at a mere hair over $25,000 with a 90-hp four-stroke Suzuki on the transom.

Most folks buy cats for their ride, of course, and in this regard these don’t disappoint. In fact, foot-for-foot they’re among the softest-riding boats around. The hulls trap and compress air in their “compression tunnels” as they move forward, and that cushion of air softens landings and reduces drag. That not only means your back hurts less, it also means you need fewer horses to go as fast as a monohull of the same size.

The Beauty of Colombia is Seen With the Burgeoning of Ecotourism

Wildlife Tours & Ecotourism in Colombia Guide.

 

Whale Watching in Colombia

Colombia’s tourism industry remains relatively young and undeveloped, and as such there is not the plethora of ecotourism projects, jungle lodges and wildlife tours that you might find in neighbouring Ecuador for example. Parts of the country, such as the Llanos region, which is rich in easily viewable wildlife are not particularly safe for travel. There are, however, a few excellent wildlife viewing options available in Colombia.

Colombia’s whale watching season is between June and September, though whales (mainly killer and humpback whales) can often be seen in the months of may and October in addition. The best place for whale watching tours is Gorgona Island, but whales can be spotted throughout Colombia’s Pacific Coast. In addition to whales, there’s great scuba diving options in TagangaSan Andres and Providencia Island.

Leticia is gateway to Colombia’s Amazon rainforest, where wildlife tours see numerous rainforest creatures.

Colombia is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world, and has an array of National Parks, many of which have wildlife viewing possibilities and are excellent for birdwatching tours. See the birdwatching section for further details.

There are few genuine examples of ecotourism (nature based travel whereby the environment and local community positively benefit from the presence of tourism), or community ecotourism, in Colombia. As the country becomes increasingly safe for travel, and the tourism industry further develops, ecotourism will become more widespread we hope. For the moment, consider Ecoturs Colombia, who offer birdwatching and nature tours to various National Parks throughout Colombia.
