Excellent weather continues, with our anglers finding success on medium to large Tarpon and Permit. The bonefishing was excellent. We have had calm winds in the morning and a nice breeze in the afternoon. Our good friend from Montana, John Way, arrived at the end of the week with a group of anglers, and they had an excellent start to their fishing. Marc had a Grand Slam this week on his first day! Addiel Perez from Bonefish and Tarpon Trust visited and fished with us this week. We measured and took samples from several Tarpon for research during his stay. BTT is an influential advocate for our fishery and many others, and we appreciate Addiell's daily effort on behalf of BTT. We look forward to seeing him again soon.

Jimmy Aliff of Orvis caught a number of nice fish from time on the water with Mariano, including this Tarpon.

The bonefish were plentiful, and some excellent fish were caught. John Way and his Montana crowd had a good week with us and we look forward to seeing them again soon.

Hunter had this Grand Slam two weeks ago while on the water with Dayan.

BELIZE FISHING REPORT

JUNE 11, 2023 THROUGH JUNE 18, 2023

Weather Conditions: Sunny with some clouds. Normal trade winds help cool the day.

Winds: E/SE 12-18 Mph.

Air Temperature: Hi: mid-80s Low: low 80s.

Sunrise: 5:14 am Sunset: 6:29 pm

Moonphase: Waning Crescent.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): More than 182 Bonefish were landed, averaging 2 to 3 lbs, several ranging from 3 to 6 lbs.

PERMIT (Palometta): Seven landed.

TARPON (Sabalo): Six landed with many more hooked and jumped.

OTHER SPECIES: Mangrove Snapper, Barracuda, Mutton Snapper, Jack Crevalle, and some Needle Fish.

FLIES THAT WORKED

FOR BONEFISH - Christmas Island Specials in gold, pearl, root beer and pink sizes 4 & 6.

FOR PERMIT - Mantis shrimp, Rag Head crabs, Bauer crabs and Alflexo crabs in sizes 4 & 6.

FOR TARPON - White Chartreuse Bunnies, Chartreuse and Black-purple toads in sizes 1/0 to 3/0.

Week in Review:

The wind has returned but has been refreshing. We are getting our normal tradewinds, making the days feel cooler. It has created enough chop on the water, making it tougher to run across open water, but most of our fishery is still easily accessed. Fishing has remained excellent, the only negative being too few big Tarpon. Skies have seen a few clouds, but we still had a lot of sun. Some really good Permit have been caught this week. Lots of Tarpon have been hooked and jumped, which is common when Tarpon fishing. Bonefish have been plentiful and grabby when we looked for them.

Thank you again for all you have done to provide us with a great trip and memories for a lifetime! Can't wait to see you again!

Overall the fishing was excellent, but there were a few periods that were very tough too. One of our guests, Brett, caught some nice tarpon from the lodge dock and had some shots at good permit. We also had some big schools of bonefish lurking along the new seawall, so there was good fishing right from the lodge. Will Stephens, one of our regular Guest Fishing Directors, arrived at the end of the week. Will is here to support our Fishing Director, Mariano, during July and to do some fishing.

Nice one, Greg! A great tarpon from the flats of Belize.

We had some excellent fishing! Good numbers of Tarpon, some great permit, and even a few snook. The bonefishing was particularly good this week, and we did more wading than usual. We had a great group celebrating a 40th birthday with 20 people. We also had a handful of our regular, super guests around, so it was a good week at the lodge. Jim got his 3rd Grand Slam - he will end up with his own board in the bar at this rate!

A nice Belize permit on fly! This was a crucial fish for Mike who ended up completing a grand slam this day.

We said goodbye to one large group of guests to say hello to a larger group of old and new friends. We went from a couple of days of mostly spinning gear going out with guests to a bunch of handmade bamboo in the boats. Several guests caught firsts on the bamboo, and they still have more fishing to do. The spin fishing earlier in the week was excellent, and many anglers also succeeded in their first attempts at fly fishing. Jeremy, Tim, and Orland all had Grand Slams this week! Congratulations to them! We had several trip slams, also. An enjoyable week overall, with great fishing.

Week in Review:

We had a great week of weather again, and the fishing results were fantastic. Jason Dubose with Oldfield Plantation brought a group of anglers down, and they tore it up. The European contingent was not to be outdone, though, catching some great fish as well. Jason, Bridger, Jack, and Gordon all had Grand Slams. Gordon also caught a snook, but not on the same day, so he missed the Super Slam. Jake also turned in a nice Grand Slam, and several others just missed theirs. All in all, a fantastic week.

Travis celebrated his birthday at El Pescador and landed some nice fish. Here he is with a nice Tarpon and Permit. Congratulations!
