Default Belize advice

Spent 10 days in Belize in 1999 for our honeymoon and now it?s time to take the kids. Caught a lot of bonefish and ladyfish when we were in Ambergris, but going to Placencia this time. Anyone have any tips on fishing guides in that area? I know Orvis has a deal with one of the resorts but that might not be best for the kids. Appreciate any directions you all can give.

So we're just back from Placencia, Belize and all I can say is... Go there as soon as you can.

Placencia in the South is a part of Belize that is still much less "discovered" than places like Ambergris in the North. It's a peninsula surrounded by water - Caribbean on one side and Placencia Lagoon on the other. Both offer great fishing.

No matter the target - snook, snapper, billfish, wahoo, king mackerel, barracuda, tarpon, bonefish, permit, etc. - the fishing is tremendous. My son caught a nice king and the guide took us to a local caye and cooked it up for us.

On another trip, I spent 6 hours (4-hr trip, but he gave me 2 extra because he was having a good time - who does that?) with a guide on the reef and while I saw (and spooked) upwards of 25 permit, I did not see another person all day. Got to love that fish-to-fisherman ratio.

Definitely a trip to put on your bucket list.
