theeux Offline
I and my fried (with our families) will be in AC (at belize beach suites) from August 6 to 16. We are gets passionate fishermen and we do not see the hour to try to confront to us with the fish of the Belize. Our objective is tarpon and bonefish flat fishing.

We wish to know if it is necessary to book in advance fishing guides or not for August period.

We do not have idea about fishing guides. We would have a professional one.

We fish maily with spinning tecnique but we have also tried to begin to learn fly-fishing and we would want to be put to the test also.

Regarding fly-fishing we want to know it is better to have own rods and reels or if it is not so expensive to rent them in AC.

Many thanks.

Generally the guides are not in high demand in August. That being said, the really good ones get booked, esp. the tarpon guys 'cuz the "big boys" are in that time of year. They're probably already booked by serious flyguy tarpon hunters. Check w/your lodging's tour desk and see who they book. Then post it here and ask for opinions. The Capt's guys are good(hell, he recommends them, so what more do you want).

That raises one other issue. I've fished for years with Vincent, and never hesitate to recomend him. But, he's not particularly talkative, and when we fish, well, we fish. May go an hour w/o saying anything to each other. Other people really want more of an "experience", and enjoy hearing local issues, gossip, etc. When you hire a guide you have to evaluate your abilities, and give some thought to what you want. Doesn't mean you'll get the "right" guy, but your chances improve. For instance, Belize is a great place for a flyrod novice to catch bonefish, but tarpon are not a fish for someone to learn on. Great for a reasonably competant flyrodder to catch their first truly large fish. But if you can't throw it 40'w/ease, stick to bones. my .02

So who knows the good guides for fishing with kids? My 7 yr old really loves to fish and we've gone with Bicho before but I'd like to try someone else. Someone fun and good with kids. Not super serious...but he does want to catch fish too! I know a lot of guides but most are more serious than I want.

Barb: I can think of 6 guides I've fished with over the years, but I've never had a kid in the boat. There were 2 or 3 that I won't get back in a boat with, Of the names above I'd guess Manuel would be best. He's such an accomodating person, and genuinely wants to help. Plus, his boat is set up in way I'd think would be kid friendly.
