Belize Fishing Reports - Ambergris Caye

December 15, 2019

This has been a great week for Permit, with almost all anglers hooking up. Several with multiple Permit during the stay. A Permit was even caught from the dock. Tarpon fishing has been a little tricky with lots of sightings, but not many landed for the week. Bonefish have been plentiful, and several really large fish caught.

Anglers continued to have plenty of shots this week with a lot of good eats and tarpon coming unbuttoned on the first or second jump. El Pescador advises anglers to practice strip setting and putting away the trout set before venturing out. In all, it was a great week for permit and the tarpon seem to be more willing to be fed flies!

Sight fishing was tough with clouds and a few rain days, making it hard to see fish. That did not stop one angler from a Grand Slam, and a few others almost achieved it as well. Bones were receptive and available regardless. Anglers had no trouble getting into them. Those seeking Permit had their work cut out for them, but three landed. Tarpon available on the flats, and the back lagoon enticed and rewarded anglers. A good number landed, and more jumped as always the case. Lots of smiles during the dock walk at the end of the day.

Last week, El Pescador hosted over 30 anglers for the Belize edition of the Redbone Tournament "to catch the cure for Cystic Fibrosis." During the three day event, two angler teams fanned out over the 400 square mile fishing area that El Pescador calls home base. In all, the event was a huge success from both a fishing perspective and for money raised towards finding a cure. Many thanks to the crew at Yellow Dog and the organizers at Redbone for an excellent event!

A great week, especially for permit anglers. Three novice fly casters took permit this week, and many others were landed by more experienced anglers. A number of snook also were in this week's bag as were a large number of bonefish.

Overall, it was a great week on the water with a lot of fish to hand for our anglers. The weather this month has been great. We did have a storm that passed over on Tuesday but moved through quickly, opening back up to sunny skies and lighter winds on Wednesday. All anglers enjoyed hooking and landed numerous Bonefish. The anglers that pursued permit had positive results with lots of opportunities and multiple permit to hand. The tarpon fishing continues to be great, with lots of fish being jumped and quite a few to hand. Lastly, we had two grand slams this last week, which are always a highlight. El Pescador is proud to be the best destination for anglers pursuing a diversity of species and the possibility to achieve the coveted flats grand slam and super slam.

The average and upper size of Bonefish continues to increase as a result of catch and release only regulations implemented 10 years ago by the Government of Belize. The tarpon fishing has remained good and there are still migratory fish around for those interested. The permit fishing is providing quite a few opportunities for those interested in pursuing. The weather has been great and providing good conditions for anglers, especially for the early morning bite.
