My buddy and I are planning on doing as much fishing as the girls will allow. We are planning to get out on a charter at least once, but since we normally do most of our fishing on Long Island(NY) by wading, we were wondering are there any good places where we could wade fish. We are staying at Banana Beach and are bringing both spinning and flyfishing equipment. Hopefully someone could point us in the right direction.
Say man, I love that about the girls letting you boys wet your lines ! My family rolls their eyes and shake their heads, they know I'm plotting to get to some decent fishing waters. The wind side of AC is really shallow and you can wade for hundreds of feet up to your waist if you are not really short. The leeside of the caye is filled with mangroves and with a mucky bottom. Basically, the windside is open for wading, but watch out for fast pangas, or fishing skiffs. I use wading shoes, not bare feet due to sea urchins and sharp objects. waders and fly vests are too hot for this climate, i use a fanny-pack stuffed with my gear, and of course a nail clipper on a retractor and a hemastat. Look for the areas without turtle grass, and try the muellas, or the piers. A good guide and a comfortable boat is a pleasure. Click on the bottom of this page for, "fishing", the info is great ! If you need a guide get in contact with Geraldo Badillo, tel # 226-2264. He is a great fisherman, and quite a charactor ! Tight-Lines Amigo Mio, Mel S........
