Makina Sportfishing

Makina Sportfishing offers an incredible all-inclusive angling adventure in Guatemala, the top Billfish grounds of the world. There are dozens of Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi around. If you are a die-hard fisherman who want to leave all the daily routine behind and think of nothing else but catching big fish - welcome aboard.

Join Captain Gilfredo “Juanga” Lopez, a real threat to any fish. His tournament wins at the helm have earned Juanga a reputation as a guy who’s ALWAYS on the bite, and his friendly, charismatic personality makes him a favorite with visiting Guatemala fishing clients.

Born in the famous Marlin fishing town of La Guairá, Venezuela, Juanga has fished as a mate with the biggest names in Caribbean offshore fishing. The experience he gained brought him to the finest fishing operations in the Pacific, where he further honed his skills earning his captain’s rank and never looking back. His unbeatable reputation in Central America has earned him thousands of happy clients.

Makina Sportfishing has tailored a great variety of full-day and multi-day packages to meet your specific needs. You can battle with big fish for just one day or spend up to 6 nights in a local guest house and fish every day.

The lodge is located just 1 miles away from the boat in a private neighborhood with 24/7 security. It has 5 air-conditioned rooms with 1 king-size, 1 queen, and 1 full-size beds.

Affectionately known as “Juanga”, Captain Lopez was born in La Guaira, Venezuela - a famous marlin fishing town - 38 years ago. A lover of the sea from his first day on the water, Juanga started his formal fishing career in Venezuela as a mate to Captain Dave Nolling (1992- 1995). From this famous captain he went on to fish with another legendary Captain, Paul Ivey in Venezuela. In 1997,1998 and 1999, Juanga and his crew were recognized by the IGFA Billfish foundation as top white marlin crew.
