Casa Vieja Lodge Announces the Makaira

Jim Turner and Casa Vieja Lodge announced today that Pelagian will be re-named “Makaira”

Puerto San Jose, Guatemala, August 27, 2010 – Casa Vieja, is excited to announce the re-naming of the "Pelagian," Casa Vieja's famous 37' Rybovich. Jim Turner, along with the boats new co-owner - Capt. Tred Barta, will re-name her "Makaira." This has been the name of all of Tred’s boats for the last 30 years. Makaira will be docked alongside the rest of Casa Vieja's classic game-boats at Marina Pez Vela. Powered by twin 350 hp Caterpillars, Makaira makes good speed and has a history at the lodge and around the world as a fish raising fool. With a beautiful flat wake and very little white water, its length, design and maneuverability make Makaira the quintessential light tackle rig.

“Makaira” is available for charter through the Lodge and is equipped with Tred’s personal ultra light tackle – two thru eight pound outfits and two twelves. The maximum test line on the boat is 16-pound outfits specifically for marlin. There is also a full arsenal of fly rods for those wishing pursue pelagics with the long wand! If you’re a die-hard light tackle angler – this is your boat!
