Any recommendations as to a fishing guide, for bonefishing or reef? The guy we had last year was more of a "guy with a boat and poles".

Check the guides at: http://AmbergrisCaye.com/fishing/
here's a few others that do it privately and don't have webpages, call them when you get to town...

Luis Caliz at 011-501-26-5025, great guide and fisherman.

George Bradley has a brother that guides spin fishing. I can't remember which brother it is, but you can reach George at 011-501-26-2179.

Nesto Gomez { a very good guide}-- one of the best tarpon and bonefish flyfisherman! He works out of El Pescador.

Omar Arceo, does a heck of a job.

For flat fishing call Eloy Gonzalez at 026-2337

Pedro (Pete) Graniel. First rate equipment, including boats, and does both offshore, reef and inshore (tarpon, etc.) Keeps his boat just south of town. Ask anyone how to contact him. He's well known.

Thanks, got your message on the other board.

I'd like to thank you, on behalf of those of us who are relative newcomers to AC. I have seen a number of your messages, and you are really a great promoter of the area.

hey Bobber, I got a couple of really good guides for you to check out. Severo and his brother, Ramon Guerrero. Either one can give you a great day of fishing. Call Severo from the US @ 011 501 26 2324. Call Ramon @ 011 501 26 2325. They have been doing honest, reef friendly fishing for many years. They can also take you and your family on a full-day fish/snorkel trip for $150US...one of the best bargains on the island when you figure in the beach BBQ w/ your catch. You won't find a better value in San Pedro. Price is for the boat for the day, I think up to 4 people.

The others that have been mentioned are good, but I have a problem recommending them, except Omar Arceo. Some don't advise you about catch and release. Some will let you fish all day without regard to limit (although there is none, common sense should take over). Some charge too much for too little.

The Guerrero brothers live next door to each other. If one is booked, ask for the other one. Good luck! Remember, take some and leave some.

Thanks, I will add that to the wealth of data. Unless it is something legal (and tasty), it all goes back (after the photo op). Life and vacation is too short to drag around a bunch of fish you can't eat fresh.

I used Eloy Gonzalez for bone fishing when I was there. He was great and very honest. My son and I caught a bunch and had a great time.
There is only one cure for baldness. It was invented by a Frenchman. It is called the guillotine.
