Stalk the flats for tarpon, bonefish and permit!
At this fishing resort you can achieve the anglers’ ultimate dream – a Grand Slam of bonefish, tarpon and permit. The saltwater flats of Belize are world renowned for offering the opportunity to sight cast to tarpon 12 months a year. Fishing Belize lagoons can turn up lady fish or snook, or you can go offshore to the reef into the deep water for tuna and wahoo. Troll the reef for king fish or barracuda. Jig the bottom for snapper and grouper. The choice is yours.
All guides for this trip are highly experienced in all aspects of your flats experience.
Many of the guides have been taught for years by their father or uncle before they were allowed to captain their own boat. With their vast knowledge of how the fish behave and move these guides prove to be some of the best in the business.
Best time to go fishing in Belize
As with any fishing the weather will play a roll in your trip and the experience and fishing you will encounter is dependent upon this uncontrollable factor. For the most part inclement weather such as wind or rain storms move through and over the island quickly. The months on Ambergris Caye tend to blend together and anglers experience great fishing year round. Below is an idea of what to expect during any given month.
On calm days you should see as many as 50-75 tarpon, 20-90 pound range. Generally, bone and tarpon fishing are good; reef fishing good to excellent on calm days.
Fish are plentiful on the flats if the wind isn’t too strong. Tarpon in the 20-90 pound range. Bones, Permit, and tarpon fishing are good, but weather-dependent. Reef fishing is excellent.
Plenty of 20-90 pound tarpon on the calmer days. Plenty of bonefish. Tarpon in lagoons. Reef fishing good to excellent. Permit schooled up in good numbers.
Lots of tarpon, 40-100 pounds, and they are more aggressive. Migrating tarpon start coming onto the reefs. It’s a good month for permit too. Usually large schools of small permit, and plenty of bones. Reef fishing excellent.
Generally our hottest month, with calm-to-light breezes. It’s not uncommon to see huge schools of 200-300 bones. Tarpon on both flats and the reef. Reef fishing is good to excellent.
Bone fishing is excellent as it always is from April through October. Tarpon on both the flats and reef. Reef fishing good to excellent.
July, August, and September
Usually calm and warm. Great fishing. Lots of bones, lots of tarpon to well over 100 pounds. We consider this the best tarpon season of the year. The most and the largest tarpon have been caught in August and September. We also find some of the largest permit of the year during tarpon migration.
Lots of tarpon, large and aggressive. Bones are larger and more aggressive too. Big schools of jack crevalle are also on the flats now and it is a good month for the larger permit. Reef fishing fair to good. If there is a lot of rainfall on the mainland, snook arrive on the flats in large numbers. The lodge record for the most tarpon landed in a single day was had in October by Dick Smith with 7 tarpon landed and another 5 jumped.
There are plenty of 60-100 pound tarpon on the flats. Jack crevalle and bone fishing are also good. Reef fishing good to excellent.
If the sun stays out there are plenty of barracuda, bones, and tarpon (40-80 pounds) on the flats. Jacks and ladyfish too. The full moon brings grouper and snappers to the reef to spawn. Reef fishing good to excellent.
