Hey, Gang,

I'm off to Belize to stay at the Belize River Lodge for a week. Anybody out there been there? What can I expect in terms of the fishing. I, of course, have their brochure, but would like to hear some first-hand comments.

What can adversely effect the fishing (wind, marl) and how likely are these conditions to occur in early November. If the bonefish areas are unfishable due to whatever, can you rely and tarpon and snook in protected waters?

Really excited about this.

Thanks for any input,

Throw in a 7 wt if you have one. The fishing down there is great but the bones will be smaller on average. If the wind lays down you'll have a lot of fun with a lighter rod.
