Soaking in the sun, exploring the blue waters, and enjoying beautiful sandy beaches – Tarpon fishing in Belize is a complete experience! Spice up your vacation with some amazing fishing. With bountiful river mouths, creeks, bays, and estuaries, fishing for the “Silver King” has never been so productive.

You can expect Tarpon to show up in April, heating up over the summer months before their numbers start dropping in September. No matter where you go, Belize will provide you with a memorable experience. Sea kayaking, snorkeling, and swimming in crystal clear waters are great additional activities to explore.

Ambergris Caye is fly anglers’ favorite destination in Belize, with abundant schools of Tarpon. In Belize City, the Belize and Sibun Rivers are home to some huge specimens of this prized fish. The southern inshore waters are known for some of the largest Silver Kings caught in the country, while Glover’s Reef is a world-famous Tarpon fishery.

On a half day trip, you’ll spend a few hours exploring the saltwater flats, while on a full day trip, the shallows will allow you to enjoy a whole day of fun and adventure. Catching a big Tarpon on the fly is a feat everyone should try at least once, so take advantage of this exciting opportunity!

Note that all Tarpon fishing is strictly catch-and-release, and fishing with scuba gear is not allowed. You must have a Belize sportfishing license, and you can get one from Belize’s Coastal Zone Management Authority (CZMA) before your trip.

Lots of fish around to try either reef fishing for fun with the Kids, or deep water fishing.

Making it threw the reef channel can be quite rough, but the remainder of the trip was well worth it.

We fished spinning gear and I brought my own. If you fish with Nano you dont have to bring spinners, I left him 2 brand new set ups. Seems like alot of people fly fish for bonefish here. I dont know anything about that. But you would have had alot of opportunities

If new to fly fishing in salt water do your homework. It's not the same as fishing for trout or salmon but that's also what makes it interesting.

Book a big enough boat for the expected conditions. A 26 foot open boat would make for a less enjoyable trip in anything but calm seas. The “dry boat” was a good choice.

Took the inner reef trolling trip. The captain stops to catch live bait, before he brings you to different spots of interest. Hang on to your rod and be ready to the reel the fish in! These fish are strong for their size, so when you land a big one, it can be a workout to bring them to the boat. Use good sunscreen and\or long sleeve shirts and pants!

The seaweed issue was a bit of a problem when reef fishing. The bait periodically got hung up on the seaweed and needed to cleaned off. However the water is spectacular and the fishing very good.

You'll be fishing within 10mins from leaving the dock. Its 450 deep just beyond the reef. Deep sea fishing is all trolling, not bottom fishing.

Stay away from the alcohol the night before. Make sure to take Dramamine (deep sea fishing) the night before and the morning of the trip. 8 hours is a long day to be out on the water especially when it is hot. Plan your trip accordingly and dont be late to the pick up point. You may not always catch what you want but after all it is called fishing.
