my guided days(two) were somewhat guide was arranged from victoria house on a recommendation,we fished muds and a little tarpon.plenty of
small bones no tarpon.
had more fun carting north on my own.
be sure to spend a day snorkleing hol chan reserve. you can swim with the tarpon if you look for them.really cool.
be prepared with lightly weighted and non weighted flys with weed guards if on your own and heavy stuff if a guide won't leave a large mud.
run the other way if a rasta asks if you "got bud mon?" he's not selling beer!

Dave17 I stayed at Victoria House. Great place if your staying with a significant other. Had a very good guide, George Bradley. He fishes the south side flats, great eyes, and he put in long days on the water.

ruger55 Thanks for the food suggestion. I'm always looking for a bargain. Who did you use for a fishing guide? Did you just arrange it thru the hotel, or on your own?

belize stay

the north part of town was way to conjested for my taste.
by the way, go down to victoria house(the most expensive place around)south of carribean villas and enjoy an incredable deal on food IN the lounge,don't eat at the restuerant very spendy, but clean up after a days fishing and walk into the lounge and enjoy some spectacular bouillabase and salad throw in a nice glass of red and you will spend about the same as in town at a beach bar for a burrito and a beer!

ruger55 Thanks for the info Distant Angler. I was considering staying at the Tides which is at the north end of town, but I'll check out the Caribbean Villas as you suggest.

belize diy

drive a golf cart north 2-3 miles until you get to some of the resorts that line the beach (north of punta pescador).
park and start hiking, there are some wadeable flats intersparced with the muck,
lots of bones and occational permit.
stay at carribean villas for the best deal, very clean,quiet,and inexpensive.
one bedroom with kitchen on the beach a little south of town.perfect.

BigDave Ambergris is not a great place for a DIY trip unless you have access to a boat.

Once you get out past the first few hundred yards many of the turtle grass flats become wadeable. Especially as you move north from the resorts towards rocky point.

Maybe bring your snowshoes!

Dave17 Mostly marl flats out there. The water looks like its a foot deep but you'd be in for a big surprise when you jump out of the boat.

ruger55 Thanks for your info. I take it there isn't much opportunity for wade fishing on your own on Ambergris?

Adam May, good time of year. Can generally expect least wind and minimal rain. Can be very good tarpon fishing with bones as an "aside." That is, most of the guides look to do tarpon. Bones only when the fishing is bad or the fisherman has trouble doing tarpon. Best guide, who's probably booked up for the year, is Nestor Gomez. One thing I must say is that those tarpon flats out back are beautiful. If the weather is good and the tarpon are around, you should have one hell of a trip.

Belize bonefishing

Am planning my first trip to Ambergris next May. Would appreciate info on DIY bonefishing, including recommended hotels closest to good fishing. Also, info on recommended guides. Any other info for a Belize newcomer would be helpful.
