First off this board is great and you guys have given me a lot of insight on what to do and where to eat. Coming down for ten days over xmas and I love to fish. I definitely plan on at least one charter trip but at $150 a pop I liked to do some fishing from the beach too. I've read not many people fish from the shore. Is this true? Is there any spots I can go North of the Cut?

The beaches are public, but the docks up north are not. Just a leisurely stroll mid-morning and late afternoon will get you some bonefish/jcks/snappers. Medium spinning and some small jigs in white/pink/tan will do plus a couple of rapala-types. Have fun.

Rugger: Take Horse up on that. Most docks have deeper areas dug out, the bones move into and out of them. You can usually see the flashes.

Can you experienced fishermen assist 19 year old fly fisherman? We are coming on Norwegian Sea, Dec. 22. Ship is in port from 7 until 5. There are 4 of us, and everyone is telling us that we will not have enough time to get to Ambergris. We would rather not fly, and the ships tour to Shark Ray alley advertises time for shopping. Should we do the water taxi from Belize City? Can son find any bone fish? Any assistance, suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Son and I are coming down for 10 days and looking to do some fishing also. We are down dec 30 to jan 10. First time down your way and definately want to shore fish. I was thinking of bringing down my pocket fisherman. What weight line and what should I use for bait or artificial bait for what i can catch on the beach/docks.
And if anyone has a dock with good fishing let us know

T. Teacher: You can get a guide out of Belize City for 1/2 or 3/4 of a day. Although AC is great to fish, the entire country is top-notch. Alot of my fishing is 445 minutes south of AC and we'll often run into Belize City guides. Jesinmo: The Capt.s got it right. Leave the pocket rocket home. It'd be worthless on anything other than 10"snappers anyway. Get a guide and you won't be sorry.
