Week In Review

It was a gorgeous week on the island. Winds dropped at the end of the week, and the water was clear everywhere. The first of the big tarpon have arrived, and we have landed 100+ pounders. We are seeing a lot of Permit and catching some of them! Some large Yellowtail Jacks were caught while they were blitzing, some of the most exciting fishing to be had. Once again, a great week in Belize.
