Marty spent 37 years flying military and commercial aircraft, including the A-10, the Boeing 727 and 777, and the McDonnell Douglas DC-10. After retiring, he invested in Big Buoy Fishing in February of 2021. He has managed the lodge on and off since then and traveled to Cape Verde to fish and work during our last two trips. He has fished in many locations including Alaska, Canada, Cape Verde, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, and on his home lake, Lake Pend Oreille located in the Northern Idaho Panhandle. He is committed to providing you with the best fishing trip possible. We use only the best Penn, Fin-Nor, and Eagle Claw gear and tackle available. Our two vessels are some one of the most stable boats on the water and are equipped with state-of-the-art electronics and all safety gear. Come explore the deep sea waters of Guatemala with us. You will have the time of your life! The Big Buoy offers Guatemala deep sea fishing vacations that are affordable, comfortable, and most importantly, memorable.
