well fishing fans,here is the real deal great no rain .wind only one day ,the waters had a lite chop ,to dead calm .no strong tide and we fished 6 days before the full moon ..perfect conditions .

day two pedro 1 from coconuts internet cafe was my guest as well as two young ladies from California. they never fished belize before ??that was to change real fast .we fished north as my two new friends where staying up that way clara and clarissa ,where ready to do some battle with the fish and got there wish the right a way .we dropped anchor on a spot capt bicho new and the bite was on. red snapper after red snapper was being put in the ice chest ,the fishing was hot .then as quick as it started it stopped .well fishing fans that can mean only one thing ,shark or cudda .a 5 foot barracuda called this place home .so we moved ,the next spots we tried caught only a few fish as we where spoiled with the other action .so we trolled live bait and got into fast and furious cuda fishing .clarrissa got cuda no#1 clara got cuda no#2 lost 3,4,5,6, we called it a day the west coast babes had a ball.pedro 1 [ peter ] was a perfect gentleman and let the pair catch all cudas they where hooked on fishing in belize ,both peter and my self enjoyed there joy ,then pedro took over the ship we went to portofino for lunch ,we ate a wonderful lunch, Peter showed us how to drink a lighthouse beer ever 5 min. and still talk politics ????a wonderful day .

day three we fished south the water was calm like a lake . birds where diving in the water ,chasing bait fish .rays where leaping out playing tag or whatever they play when happy .fish where breaking on the top ,this was going to be a great day ,pedro had to work at the cafe ,the calf. girls my new fishing buddies came along and keep me co ...capt bicho took us to the out side reef thru the cut near ray ally we where into a leap job of yellow tail snapper right away ...we where trolling live bait small sardines .every cast was a hit fish or lost ,one after one filling the box ,with nice size snapper threw all small fish back ,we keep only fish we eat .bicho feeds all the people that live near him ,which is a nice treat for them it is to much money for them to buy it costs more then chicken ,or pork ,.. any way the day flys by .we are plum tucked out ,my arm hurts .. time for a cold one ,or two, or three , you get the point ,we make a stop at shark and ray alley bicho jr the capts son has the fish, sharks and rays, around the boat clara and clarissa and me capt jeff go in for a dip ..what fun this turn to be. a nice way to end a perfect day

day four the wind picks up a little lite chop no bait fish ,we go all the way to caye caulker to get our sardines ,we fish for snapper ,my self pedro 1 my new adopted first mate ,he is now in to fishing with the capt ..we catch some nice red snapper ,close to shore try some spots nice action not great not like the day before but a good am ..we are in a lobster area capt.bicho sends jr in to get us some lobster ,15 lobsters later we have a meal ...and then some .we call it a day filet and lobster for dinner .a kings feast ..

day five wind blowing a 20 to 25 miles a hr no way a nice fishing day .today grant from fidos the manager ,peter ,and the capt jeff say what now ????????capt bicho says lets go to my spot in the lagoon ,he saves the day ,we catch lots of silk snapper ,red snapper ,the bite is fast ,a fish ever cast most are throw backs ,but good fast fishing we get the day in. the wind calms down ,but we are home early to tired out from all the action we left the fish still out, there to catch a other day .....this a supper week of fishing ,good friends ,great weather ,the fishing was outstanding ,my capt capt bicho was the best ,I can not say enough about him and his son .he is like my new family. a sweet and warm man just like all the wonderful people of san pedro .

First mate signing in saying great trip-it is almost like going on holiday when you come down-one thing you must go to Simpsons(downstairs)on the Strand (next to the Savoy hotel)for lunch-do not forget to tip the carver a pound coin for every dish carved and served (no more no less this is not to be considered part of the tip)and do not forget to have the steamed jam pudding for afters.
See you soon

Great report Capt! Earlier this week I was struggling with the decison to come back to AC for my 3rd trip. Finances are extremely tight this year... but I thought back to how many AWESOME fishing days I've had (like days you've just described)and have decided nothing can stop me now!! Fishing (and the visit itself)in Belize is one of the best experiences in life! When I tell people about it I always gush with stories for weeks. laugh
Thanks for the reminder of how much fun I can look forward to!!!

Great Pics CJeff,

So thats what Pedro1 looks like smile . Where do you go to get your fish cleaned and cooked or do you do it yourself. Also, where do you usually stay in town. i will have to add fishing to my list of "next times".
