Who is your favorite fishing guide? - 05/13/13 12:26 PM

Who is your favorite fishing guide and what was your most memorable fishing experience?

I like Eric from Uprising tours, had fun going out with him and he has music option on his boat.

Also had great trips with Peter Graniel and Captain Abel been out with both of them a few times always fun and always a good catch.

One that experience stands out in particular was the time we heard a dolphin breathing before we could see it. It hung out with is a while then went on it's way. Magical.

Bicho. Always lots of fish and great shore lunches.

One of the great experiences for us has always been the reef fishing, and the shore lunches are things of legend. Nothing better than fresh fish prepared over an open fire with all kinds of great stuff added.

Luis works out of El Pescador, but you don't have to stay there to hire him. Far as I know flat fishing only, and a very good fly man too.

Peter Graniel and Abel Guerrero remain my favourite fishing guides ever. Many thanks to Capt Jeff (RIP) for introducing us to these true men of the sea.

I have to agree with you on that one Colly. I know many of us have fond memories of fishing trips with Capt Jeff. I miss his jokes and bubbly personality.

I have fished with Manuel Azueta for many years and have found him to a "top-notch" flats fly fishing guide. I may be a little prejudice because his mama fixes lunch for me.

Over the years I have gone out with several guides and have had a lot of different experiences, some good, some not so much. The one exceptional guide I had was a guy whose last name was Powe, I don't remember his 1st name. His boat was the Kiara and we used him in Feb 2011.

Powe had us on the fish all day long and was a great conversationalist as well. Not only was he the best guide I have had in Belize, but anywhere. I know he grew up in Belize, but lives there part of the time now along part of the time in Kansas City.

Russell is patient, hard working and cost effective. Pretty much limited to inside the reef unless its a very calm day. Gone fishing with him 3 times and will no doubt go again. No complaints.
My wife fishes, I pretty much just go along for the ride. And she humors me by occasionally joining me on dives.

I have been out with at least half a dozen guides over the years and I would vote for Jose Perez for both flats and reef. 35 years guiding on Ambergris... must be a reason.

I've used Omero Graniel the last 3 trips, last trip in Feb. fishing with my cousin was really cool,We fished inside the reef and caught lot's of snapper & a couple of nice Spanish mackerel.
Omero cleaned 6 snapper & a mackerel for us and they cooked them at the Sand Bar (my new favorite bar) for free, all we had to pay for was the sides.
I've also done a couple snorkeling/beach BBQs with him.
He doesn't advertise and is very reasonable price wise.
It was my cousin's first trip to Belize and they loved it.
I would highly recommend him.

Omero Graniel- over 25 years experience

I like Tony's Tours. Mario and Tony are great guides doing mostly reef fishing, and they are great with kids. Like them on Facebook Tony's Tours, Belize

My wife and I went out with Eric of Uprising last Feb. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. It was one of the best times I have ever had.

I've fished with Pete and Abel in the past and have had great trips with both captains, but for the past six years we have been fishing with Roberto Bradley. We have done reef, flats, and offshore, as well as a great snorkeling trip where we snorkel 3-4 spots then end up in Caye Caulker for lunch. He is the best. [email protected] 501 226 2116
