BELIZE FISHING REPORT

Weeks of Oct. 30th thru Nov. 5th, 2017

Weather Conditions: Mostly sunny with some periods of rain.

Winds: East to Northeast winds 10-15mph.

Air Temperature: Highs in the low 80’s lows in the lower 70’s.

Water Temperature: Temp: 83 F. degrees.

Sunrise: 5:52 am Sunset: 5:20 pm

Moonphase: First Quarter.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): Another week of good fishing for Bonefish. With the water temperature cooling slightly and the calmer winds, the larger bonefish are staying on the flats. Several anglers landed fish over five pounds, which is a big bonefish around here. The largest bonefish in the lodge’s history is eight pounds, so over five is awesome! Mariano, while fishing in the lagoon with Joey and Heather, hooked bonefish estimated to be over six pounds.

PERMIT (Palometta): The permit bite is remaining productive, but as usual can be challenging to keep on the line. More fish hooked than landed, and anglers are coming back to the lodge with stories of the one that got away. Mike and Brian did, however, manage to land some and Brian landed two during his stay. Good job Brian and Mike!

TARPON (Sabalo): The tarpon are much more receptive to anglers than the permit this week and have been willing to tug hard on the line. Wanda, on her first Tarpon trip, jumped a one-hundred-pound tarpon and landed a fifty pounder. Steve, Wanda’s fishing partner also landed a fifty pounder, and Brian managed to boat a sixty-five pounder, while Pete’s tarpon was nearly eighty pounds.

OTHER SPECIES: Snapper, jacks, barracuda, grouper, ladyfish and snook.

GRAND SLAM: No Grand Slams this week.

FLIES THAT WORKED

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

FOR PERMIT - Peterson Shrimp, Mantis shrimp and Avalon crabs and Squimp.

FOR TARPON - Toads and bunnies, black on black, chartreuse, red on black, tan and olive and white all continue to work well.

This Week’s Summary:

It was nice having the Baton Rouge group this week, and we will look forward to Ian’s return.

Fish On!

BELIZE FISHING REPORT

Weeks of Nov. 13th - Nov. 19th, 2017

Weather Conditions: Mostly sunny with some periods of rain and clouds.

Winds: Northeast winds 5-15 mph with some gusty winds.

Air Temperature: Highs in the low 80’s Lows in the lower to middle 70’s.

Water Temperature: Temp: 83 F. degrees.

Sunrise: 6:00 am Sunset: 5:16 pm

Moonphase: New Moon.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): The larger bonefish continue to hang around on the flats. Sightings of five to six pounders are becoming the norm as the water continues to cool. Big numbers of bonefish were caught in a single day of fishing. Each Bonefishing angler is landing at least several larger fish as part of their daily total. It is a great time to be on the flats Bonefishing! .

PERMIT (Palometta): Lots and lots of permit are being seen with over ten permit landed this week. Two anglers landed seven in just two days of fishing. The permit are hungry and ready to eat. Andrew managed to land his first permit that weighed in at over twenty-five pounds. Awesome permit fishing the last couple of weeks!

TARPON (Sabalo): The tarpon are around in fairly large numbers but are not as eager to play as the bonefish and permit. The tide and wind have made some of the tarpon fishing days difficult, but anglers continue to have some success. The snook bite has been ramping up so lots of fisherman going after those guys using streamer patterns. Be sure to come prepared for snook and have a little extra fun and the chance at a Super Slam.

OTHER SPECIES: Lookdowns, snapper, jacks, barracuda, ladyfish and snook.

GRAND SLAM: No Grand Slams this week.

FLIES THAT WORKED

BELIZE FISHING REPORT

Weeks of Nov. 20th - Nov. 26th, 2017

Weather Conditions: A sunny week with a few periods of rain and clouds.

Winds: Northeast winds 5-15 mph.

Air Temperature: Highs in the low 80’s Lows in the lower to middle 70’s.

Water Temperature: Temp: 83 F. degrees.

Sunrise: 6:02 am Sunset: 5:16 pm

Moonphase: New Moon.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): A nice week with family and friends. The lodge has been close to full this week with lots of folks coming to Belize to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday in the Caribbean. The weather has been beautiful, and the bonefish have been hungry. Juan, one of our favorite guests, came down with the Orvis BBB group and managed to land a total of fifty-eight bonefish. Good job Juan!

PERMIT (Palometta): With all the families came lots of kids, and a few of them ended up catching most of the fish. It’s funny how the kids are always the lucky ones. Twelve-year-old Molly Sue managed to land three permit, barracuda, jacks and yellowtail snapper while spin fishing with her dad who landed two permit himself. Fourteen-year-old Lucca landed permit and tarpon as well and a host of other fish while fly fishing with his dad. It’s cool to see the young generation of anglers be successful on the flats.

TARPON (Sabalo): The tarpon were also kind to the moms this week, and Aimee managed to land her first tarpon while fishing with Captain Vince. The tarpon are a little crazy this week with the west wind, so the anglers are going into the deeper channels on the flats to catch them. Early morning seems to be the best time to get a shot.

OTHER SPECIES: Mayan Cichlid, lookdowns, mangrove snapper, jacks, barracuda, yellowtail snapper, and snook.

GRAND SLAM: No Grand Slams this week.

BELIZE FISHING REPORT

Weeks of Nov. 27th - Dec. 3rd, 2017

Weather Conditions: Mostly sunny with some overnight showers.

Winds: Northwest and west winds 10-15mph.

Air Temperature: Highs in the low 80’s Lows in the lower to middle 70’s.

Water Temperature: Temp: 83 F. degrees.

Sunrise: 6:07 am Sunset: 5:17 pm

Moonphase: Full Moon (Dec. 3rd)

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): Working his way through all the species that we target, Alan landed over forty bonefish and a host of other species. All of our anglers were successful in spite of the west wind blowing. Bonefish are the last fish to get spooked when the west wind blows because they prefer a falling tide as long as it doesn’t fall too much too quickly. Anglers headed north to wade and found some big bonefish tailing on the flats near Rocky Point. The lagoon fishing turned out to be productive as well. Always good Bonefishing here!

PERMIT (Palometta): Our in-house anglers landed over twenty. Alan, a fly fishing angler from the UK, managed to land twenty Permit during his stay and sixteen of those in a single day. He found the perfect fly after changing flies several times and the permit could not resist. Catching sixteen permit in a lifetime is a fine achievement, but sixteen in a single day is unheard of!! Nice work Alan!

TARPON (Sabalo): When the west wind blows, the tarpon go into deeper channels where they feel more comfortable and have a tendency not to feed as often - which is exactly what happened this week as the wind direction changed to a west/northwest wind. A lot of tarpon have been visible on the flats but only a few caught. The front passed by and the flats are again full of water so we look forward to more tarpon stories this coming week.

OTHER SPECIES: Mayan Cichlid, lookdowns, mangrove snapper, jacks, barracuda, yellowtail snapper, and snook.

GRAND SLAM: Congratulations to Gus on his Grand Slam.

FLIES THAT WORKED

FOR BONEFISH - Christmas Island Specials in orange, pearl and pink sizes 6 & 8.

FOR PERMIT - Squimp, Mantis shrimp, Mink shrimp and Peterson’s shrimp size 6&8.

FOR TARPON - Mini Divers working well in the lagoon for juvenile Tarpon. Olive, white, red and black, all black and black and purple toads and bunnies are all working well.

This Week’s Summary:

Cool weather, a little breezy and lots of permit and bonefish this week.

Fish On!
