A permit can be the most finicky of all the target species down in Belize as even a well-presented fly can get the eye of rejection from a feeding permit.

All guides for this trip are highly experienced in all aspects of your flats experience.

Many of the guides have been taught for years by their father or uncle before they were allowed to captain their own boat. Their vast knowledge of how the fish behave makes them some of the best in the business. If you’ll looking for an unguided fishing trip while you’re in Belize, we can help you out with that as well. Just let us know what you’re looking for.

Other than their flats fishing they offer a variety of other activities.

As with any fishing the weather will play a roll in your trip and the experience and fishing you will encounter is dependent upon this uncontrollable factor. For the most part inclement weather such as wind or rain storms move through and over the island quickly. The months on Ambergris Caye tend to blend together and anglers experience great fishing year round. Below is an idea of what to expect during any given month.

On calm days you should see as many as 50-75 tarpon, 20-90 pound range. Generally, bone and tarpon fishing are good; reef fishing good to excellent on calm days.


Fish are plentiful on the flats if the wind isn’t too strong. Tarpon in the 20-90 pound range. Bones, Permit, and tarpon fishing are good, but weather-dependent. Reef fishing is excellent.


Plenty of 20-90 pound tarpon on the calmer days. Plenty of bonefish. Tarpon in lagoons. Reef fishing good to excellent. Permit schooled up in good numbers.


Lots of tarpon, 40-100 pounds, and they are more aggressive. Migrating tarpon start coming onto the reefs. It’s a good month for permit too. Usually large schools of small permit, and plenty of bones. Reef fishing excellent.

July, August, and September

Usually calm and warm. Great fishing. Lots of bones, lots of tarpon to well over 100 pounds. We consider this the best tarpon season of the year. The most and the largest tarpon have been caught in August and September. We also find some of the largest permit of the year during tarpon migration.


Lots of tarpon, large and aggressive. Bones are larger and more aggressive too. Big schools of jack crevelle are also on the flats now and it is a good month for the larger permit.

    I am going back again this year with my wife and hoping to get into some Tarpon! They begin to migrate late summer and can be great in September and October. These tarpon are much larger than the resident tarpon available all year.

  2. Kevin Cummings

    Great trip! Have always wanted a shot at a saltwater grand slam. While I did not hook-up on a tarpon, I couldn’t get them to take my fly. Guess that’s why they call it fishing and not catching. Would love to go back some day.
