GREAT SUMMER FISHING VENEZUELA BILLFISH
Summer months are the peak season for Venezuela swordfish. The combination of trade winds and currents cause the upwelling of nutrients from January through June and attract huge schools of bait fish that, in turn, are prey for great numbers of billfish, particularly Blue Marlin which peak from December through April. White Marlin and Sailfish abound year around, peaking from August through November. Spearfish can also be caught from the bank with the best months for them being November – March.
Locals claim that the famous La Guaira Bank in Venezuela is one of the great GRAND SLAM capitals of the world, and we won’t disagree about that because of the spectacular results we have seen. Five different billfish in all (Sailfish, white marlin, blue marlin, swordfish and Spearfish) can be caught throughout the year. Considering the range of the numbers, it is this unique feature that has long given argument that La Guaira can claim as being one of the Billfish Capitals of The World. You can catch billfish in Venezuela. Fishing International communicates well with these fleet managers and captains, and once more, they know us and exactly what our anglers expect, be it heavy tackle, light tackle, or blue water fly fishing — and the ground transfers and lodging that makes the complete trip convenient and productive.
The bountiful offshore waters of Venezuela continue to provide visiting anglers and sportfishing thrill seekers with amazing blue water excitement. Countless billfish and small game species such as tuna and dorado that congregate in the area welcome anglers that come to Venezuela looking for the ultimate fish challenge.
