Belize info

I have been looking for a salt water/flats fishing location and with current prices its almost affordable. Does anyone have suggestions. I am thinking Belize because of girlfriend is able to "swallow" this location. Any information on this location would be great. Thanks for the help.

My wife and I honeymooned in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. Dirt cheap. Booked a trip with a Mario Graniel - he put me on more bonefish in a half-day than I could have missed wading the flats around town. Plus, since it was October and their "low" season, we did our trip for half-price because he needed the business.

Look him up - you will NOT be disappointed.

Amberigris Caye has some great outfitters and good independent guides. I know they are having some big sales as well. Turneffe Island has some great deals also.

I stayed in and fished out of the Inn at Robert's Grove in Placencia a couple of years ago. Guide's name was Eworth Garbutt i believe. They own a small private island out near the reef with wade-able flats on one side and deeper water on the other. His older brothers guide somewhere north of there, but i don't recall where.

It was a great hotel, and the fishing was spectacular, even if we did end up having to outrun a nasty thunderstorm one afternoon.

I believe the place mentioned above is Cay Caulker, and in Belize they pronounce it "key" not "cay," if memory serves.

On Amberguis Cay I suggest that you go to the "El Pescador" resort. It is all inclusive and fly fishing oriented. The guides are great. There is plenty for the wife to do if she doesn't fish. The owners are super. The Garbutt brothers are also great guides . They are in Southern Belize and this is a prime Permit area. The movie "Drift" opens featuring the Garbutt brothers. They used to work for El Pescador South in Punta Gorda. I have fished with Skully. You can't go wrong here either. For more information, El pescador has a web site and it is also featured on Schmidt Outfitters website.

Be Responsible, have all your Steelhead speyed

Often better fishing if you put together your own holiday - I have stayed on Caye Caulker a couple of times: Iguana Reef Inn and a local guide called Piggy. Not as fishing oriented as places mentioned above on Ambergris, but much more lightly fished and I have always caught Permit there, in addition to lots of bonefish. That said , evening entertainment much more limited than much bigger and more developed Ambergris. Depends what you and the g-f are after really.

Caye Caulker was populated heavily by Europeans when we stopped there on our puddle-jumper for a few hours' layover. Ambergris - we met many Americans.

Not that it means anything. The fishing was good everywhere.
