Week In Review

Seasonal fronts, cooler temperatures and strong winds continue in and around Ambergris Caye. Water conditions have become cloudy with higher winds making for challenging conditions. Bonefish are continuing to be caught in good numbers on the flats. Schools of Permit are being sighted and Tarpon have been hooked but both in limited numbers. We caught our first 100 lb + Tarpon in several weeks. Increasing numbers of larger Snook are being landed along the Belize mainland coast.

Healthy populations of bonefish often make for plenty of opportunities to take on these impressively speedy fish. Phoenix with a good one from a day with Capt. Gordy.
