BELIZE FISHING REPORT

Weeks of August 14th - August 20th, 2017

Weather Conditions: Sunny and nice after a threat of bad weather that didn’t materialize!

Winds: Light to medium winds 12-15 mph.

Air Temperature: Highs in the high 80’s with lows near 80.

Water Temperature: Temp: 85 F. degrees.

Sunrise: 5:37 am Sunset: 6:16 pm

Moonphase: New Moon.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): Tropical storm Harvey was threatening to visit us this week, but it now seems the threat has dissipated. The fishing before a major storm is usually really good and this week has not proven any different. Our bonefish are feeding well and all bonefish anglers are benefiting from the bite.

PERMIT (Palometta): The permit bite continues to be productive as they are around in large numbers. Most of the anglers here this week are targeting tarpon, but each of our permit anglers are getting multiple shots during the day. Once again the first time anglers are often the most successful!

TARPON (Sabalo): Adam M. with The Fieldworkers Club has finished his yearly tagging expedition of tarpon this week and continued the efforts to gain a better understanding of their movements. The tagged fish will hopefully give us the information we need to enhance the protection efforts of this fish we all love to catch. We will look forward to next year! Join us and be part of the science. If interested contact adam@fieldworkersclub.com. Thank you again for all your efforts, Adam!!

OTHER SPECIES: Needlefish, Barracuda, Snapper, Cobia, Mackerel, Nurse Sharks.

GRAND SLAM: No Grand Slams this week.

FLIES THAT WORKED

FOR BONEFISH - Christmas Island Specials in orange and pink size 6 & 8, Squimp and Mantis shrimp.

FOR PERMIT - Peterson Shrimp, Squimp and crabs in tan and olive.

FOR TARPON - Toads and bunnies, black on black, red on black, tan and olive are all great.

This Week’s Summary:

The week was filled with fun, lots of laughs, and great fishing. We are looking forward to next week. Hope to see you here!

BELIZE FISHING REPORT

Weeks of August 21st - August 27th, 2017

Weather Conditions: Sunny and a bit windy.

Winds: Steady east winds 12-18 mph.

Air Temperature: Highs in the high 80’s with lows near 80.

Water Temperature: Temp: 85 F. degrees.

Sunrise: 5:38 am Sunset: 6:12 pm

Moonphase: First Quarter.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): Not too many anglers in the lodge with the threat of Harvey looming last week. Everyone that decided not to let the threat change their plans had an excellent week of fishing. There were plenty of bonefish to be had by all. Lucky for us Mother Nature was kind. We hope our friends along the Gulf coast are safe and their lives aren’t disrupted too significantly. We are thinking about you guys. Stay Safe!

PERMIT (Palometta): If you enjoy tailing permit and lots of opportunities to catch one of our favorite fish to target then “come on down.” The permit bite continues to be incredible with multiple anglers landing permit the same day. Over the last several weeks these fish have been feeding heavily and are seen in large schools. Now is a perfect time to “Get your Permit Game On!!”

TARPON (Sabalo): The tarpon bite remains strong. Brian, after catching his permit and bonefish in a thirty-minute time frame targeted tarpon the rest of the morning. He experienced two nice eats but was unable to hook up. Better luck next time getting the Grand Slam. We are also still seeing a lot of migratory fish around with some anglers having success. It takes patience to target and land these big fish, but it is probably one of the coolest things an angler can experience.

OTHER SPECIES: Barracuda, Snapper

GRAND SLAM: No Grand Slams this week.

FLIES THAT WORKED

FOR BONEFISH - Christmas Island Specials in orange and pink size 6 & 8, Squimp and Mantis shrimp

FOR PERMIT - Peterson Shrimp, Squimp and crabs in tan and olive.

FOR TARPON - Toads and bunnies, black on black, red on black, tan and olive are all great.

This Week’s Summary:

Thinking about our friends along the Gulf coast and hoping they are okay.

Fish On!

BELIZE FISHING REPORT

Weeks of Aug. 27th - Sept. 3rd, 2017

Weather Conditions: Sunny and a bit windy.

Winds: Steady east winds 12-18 mph.

Air Temperature: Highs in the high 80’s with lows near 80.

Water Temperature: Temp: 85 F. degrees.

Sunrise: 5:38 am Sunset: 6:12 pm

Moonphase: First Quarter.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): Happy anglers and plenty of tailing bonefish. Thirty to fifty bonefish a day have been the stories of the week. The fishery has experienced some ups and downs over the last month with the threat of tropical storms looming, which has created sporadic feeding, but when the bite has turned on, it has been prolific.

PERMIT (Palometta): The permit bite continues, and the anglers have opportunities each day, with some large permit landed. A couple of permit over twenty pounds have been brought to the boat this week. The fish do not seem to have a huge preference this week and are eating both baits and fly.

TARPON (Sabalo): This week’s weather overall has been good with a few days being super calm. The tarpon bite is staying strong, and we are even finding a few snook around while hunting for tarpon in the mangroves. As the weather cools down, the Snook will start showing themselves more often and will give that angler a chance at the super slam. Fall is on the way!

OTHER SPECIES: Barracuda, snapper, ladyfish, catfish, needlefish, and broad shad.

GRAND SLAM: No Grand Slams this week.

FLIES THAT WORKED

FOR BONEFISH - Christmas Island Specials in orange and pink size 6 & 8, Squimp and Mantis shrimp.

FOR PERMIT - Peterson Shrimp, Squimp and crabs in tan and olive.

FOR TARPON - Toads and bunnies, black on black, red on black, tan and olive are all great.

This Week’s Summary:

Here we go again with another storm headed to the US. Stay safe friends! You are in our thoughts every day.

Fish On!

BELIZE FISHING REPORT

Weeks of Sept. 3rd - Sept. 10th, 2017

Weather Conditions: Sunny.

Winds: Light winds.

Air Temperature: Highs in the high 80’s lows near 80.

Water Temperature: Temp: 85 F. degrees.

Sunrise: 5:40 am Sunset: 6:01 pm

Moonphase: Full moon on the 6th.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): Probably one of the best weeks ever for this fishery. Ahead of the hurricane reaching Barbuda and the Dominican the fishing has been out of this world. Storms typically bring good fishing days but a storm of this magnitude coupled with great weather has created a record breaking week.

PERMIT (Palometta): Along with the incredible bone fishing this week, we have had some of the best permit fishing as well. There have been more permit caught this week than any one week in recent history. Seven, “Yes” seven grand slams and a host of single permit landed. Amazing!

TARPON (Sabalo): The Tarpon are eating everything! Chris, one of our first timers to Belize as our guest, managed to jump sixteen tarpon in a single day and landed two. He then landed an eighty pounder the next day. Art spent 2-1/2 hours fighting his tarpon and it turned out to be a one hundred and fifty pounder. The week has been epic!!

OTHER SPECIES: Grouper, barracuda, snapper, ladyfish, needlefish, nurse sharks, Spanish mackerel and stingrays.

GRAND SLAM: Seven Grand Slams…Congrats to all!
