Week In Review

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.

What Guests were Catching
