Oct, 1st - Oct. 8th, 2017 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING
An awesome week to be in Belize! To spite the threat of TS Nate, anglers that visited us this week enjoyed great bonefishing and beautiful weather. The low tide has happened when the sun is high which makes it easier to see all those bonefish coming your way. First time bone fisherman and women have all been successful catching that coveted fish
The permit were receptive to the fly this week. Anglers landed as many as three in one day, which is a tall order when it comes to Permit fishing. Craig was one of those guys that enjoyed the tug of three fish in a single day with two making it to the boat. Thanks to everyone for being part of this week at the lodge. We look forward to the next time! The fish will be waiting.
Once again the Tarpon are around in large numbers. Long Caye, down south, continues to lure guides and anglers in search of larger fish. Michael decided to take his chances the day TS Nate passed by and managed to land three Tarpon. What a beautiful end to his and Katie’s honeymoon week!
Snapper, jacks, barracuda, needlefish, grouper and ladyfish.
None this week.
Flies that worked:
Bonefish: Christmas Island Specials in orange, pearl and pink size 6 & 8
Permit: Peterson Shrimp, Mantis shrimp and Avalon crabs.
Tarpon:Toads and bunnies, black on black, red on black, tan and olive are all great.
Our thoughts turn to the gulf coast as they experienced Nate’s arrival.
