Belize’s tropical waters offer one of the best year-round sport fishing adventures you’ll find anywhere. Belize’s Barrier Reef is extensive and rich in natural marine habitat, creating a world-renowned fishing destination.
When fishing the flats you will be in a small narrow boat called a Lanchon. The length of boats used on the flats runs from 20 to about 24 feet, and about five to six feet across. You fish off a platform on the bow of the boat for the best visibility. Once on the flats the guides cuts off the engine and prepares his guest on the deck to fish while he poles the boat through the flats. The bone fish flats are about 25-40 minutes on the leeward side of the island.
At the reef you bottom fish with live sardines for Snappers, Horse eye jacks, Mackerel, Barracuda, and Groupers.
