We had a fun week with angler from Colorado, North Carolina and Italy. The week started with windy conditions and pretty tough fishing, but then we settled into a nice summer weather pattern and the fishing improved. The highlight was a nice Grand Slam landed by Orazio. Permit fishing, in particular, really turned on the second half of the week. We didn’t see as many tarpon, possible due to the rougher weather early in the week.
Orazio G., from Italy, has an epic day with Dubs as well as a couple of other great days. On Thurs. he landed a permit on his fifth cast, made another five casts and landed a 100 + pound tarpon and thenfive more casts to land his bonefish. It’s really not that easy, but Orazio made it seem that way. In addition, Orazio landed another permit and hooked, but lost two others.
Jack and Nick S., from NC, visited Belize for the first time and dedicated a good share of their fishing week to hunting permit with Dion. Jack hooked and lost a nice permit early in the week and finally landed his prize 10 minutes before the end of the last day. Nick enjoyed some good bonefishing and joined his mother and sister on our Atoll Adventure program on Fri. for some great snorkeling with Abel.
Tom S., part of a nice group from Colo., put an exclamation point on his fishing week by also landing a nice permit on Fri. Tom’s bonefishing had been tough early in the week so this was a nice end for his trip.
Chris K., fromColo., sent most of his week hunting permit with Michael and although they had good shots almost every day, unfortunately, no photos were obtained. Hopefully, next time, Chris.
Giuseppe B., from Italy, had a trying start to his week with his fishing gear not arriving on his flight. We were able to outfit him with Sage rods and Abel reels, but he was still glad when his own gear arrived on Wed. from Europe. Giuseppe’s highlight was also a landed permit on Thurs.
Bill B. and Ryan W., fromColo., had a couple of great bonefishing days. We hope to see Bill him back at Christmas as planned and Ryan as soon as possible.
Mauizio C. and Giulio P., also fromItaly, took shots at all the target species while fishing single with Willie and Daniel. Marizio came close to landing his permit, but rumor has it that he lost it while trying to get his camera out – always a jinx.
Be forewarned: It’s barely summer, but our Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years weeks are starting to fill.

Belize - February 9th, 2008
supplied by: Belize Flats Fishing Expeditions RECORDED:84 °FISHING: Great
just returned from a trip to southern belize, with 6 clients for 4 days of permit fishing and we had a new moon tide that kept the full amount of water off the flats , but still had 10 to 15 legitimate shots at permit each day. With the low water it kept them from doing their Belizean tail show compared to normal but still got lots of great shots and the final score was 7 hooked 3 landed with 2 being hooked,but lost, in th 20 lbs plus catagory, all in all everyone was very happy!!! Ambergris Caye continues to fish well with the usual hungry packs of bones that are not being molested yet. The permit fishing has been strong with 5 landed in the last two weeks. The tarpon are still spotty but the guides report seeing lots of bait which means it is just a matter of time before we start seeing lots of the silver sides!!
Ambergris Caye - May 3rd, 2007
supplied by: Belize Flats Fishing Expeditions RECORDED:88 °FISHING: Great
Tarpon are being found consistently now. we have had clients hooking tarpon daily,the landing of some of these monster is the hard part though.
permit on the flats have been user friendly, two hooked last week and a couple broken off!!!
bonefish are spooky becuase of the upcoming full moon.but still can be fun and challenging, especially if you run further than all the usual spots.
