I would like to do some fishing from the docks and the shore and was wondering if the locals care and if people frown on this. I would catch and release unless i got lucky and caught a keeper for a one night dinner, and hopefully find a place that would cook it for us. We will be staying fairly close to town.
I'm wondering if I should pack my fishing gear?
I will probably go on a fishing charter for a day but want to do some fishing on my own too.

Do yourself a favor. Hire a guide for a day or more. You can catch and release Permit, Bonefish or Tarpon and keep some (cleaned) snappers for dinner. Parnell Cox is a first class guide on Caye Caulker. One day with him includes lunch, water and soft drinks, ice, live bait. I've fished with Parnell for the last 4 years and will see him again in 2011.
His cell phone number is: 660-7118

Tight lines & soft breezes.....

Piers are open to the public, just dont leave a mess behind.

I tell our guests who ask this question to use the guidleline that if the Dock is a Hotel dock, or has a SCUBA or Snorkel Tour Operator not to fish from it as they have often set up snorkel areas and artificial reefs around the dock for their guests who pay to see fish in the water, not on a hook.
