Anybody do aany DYI fishin' around ambergris??? I would love to hire a guide (I am a fishin' guide myself,in Alaska, and Northern MN) but due to my profession I can't afford to. I am comin' down to Belize toward the beginnin' of april and wonder if there are places to go in belize where I can fish on my own without a boat. Or maybe find a boat rental??

Renting a boat is out of the question. You would need a belize captain's license and that you can't get that without being a land owner. (plus it is dangerous to drive around the island without intimate knowledge of coral hazards)

You can fish off of most docks for small snapper and other small stuff. The very south tip of the island is a pretty good spot if you are up for a bike ride / cart trip.

Or, you can also rent a kayak and fish right on the reef for snapper and barracuda.

To get the big stuff, you will need to hire a boat though.

If you're talking about fly fishing, talk to either Abbie at GoFish or Jim at Tres Pescados fly shop

...there are spots on the front of the island where you wade w/ out a boat, mainly north of town. There is a pretty large flat just north of Journey's End that is definitely wadable...

Here's a link to a piece about walking the flats of Ambergris that originally appeared in American Angler:

That B.Craig Phillips article was one of the best, most comprehensive articles I have ever read on fishing the flats. and believe I have been fishing for almost 50 years and have read 1000's of articles.
