Week In Review

The trend over Ambergris Caye has been the Rolling fronts and intermittent rain. Wind conditions are from the E/NE 10-20 consistently. Catch rates continue to remain below average, and low light conditions require guides to resort to catching Bonefish largely through tailing or waking on the flats. Likewise, Permit and Tarpon have been challenging to find, and catch rates remain below average. Small Tarpon and Snook can be found in and around mangrove growth but require greater accuracy to hook up.
