Nov. 20th - Nov. 26th 2017 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING
A nice week with family and friends. The lodge has been close to full this week with lots of folks coming to Belize to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday in the Caribbean. The weather has been beautiful, and the bonefish have been hungry. Juan, one of our favorite guests, came down with the Orvis BBB group and managed to land a total of fifty-eight bonefish. Good job Juan!
With all the families came lots of kids, and a few of them ended up catching most of the fish. It’s funny how the kids are always the lucky ones. Twelve-year-old Molly Sue managed to land three permit, barracuda, jacks and yellowtail snapper while spin fishing with her dad who landed two permit himself. Fourteen-year-old Lucca landed permit and tarpon as well and a host of other fish while fly fishing with his dad. It’s cool to see the young generation of anglers be successful on the flats.
The tarpon were also kind to the moms this week, and Aimee managed to land her first tarpon while fishing with Captain Vince. The tarpon are a little crazy this week with the west wind, so the anglers are going into the deeper channels on the flats to catch them. Early morning seems to be the best time to get a shot.
Mayan Cichlid, lookdowns, mangrove snapper, jacks, barracuda, yellowtail snapper, and snook.
No Grand Slams this week.
Flies that worked:
