Get ready to make your Belizean adventure even more exciting with Makin It Reel! This is a team of native fishing guides, all with amazing knowledge and lifelong experiences of these waters.

Hop on your team’s amazing 45’ Hatteras boat that can easily accommodate a group of 6. She’s powered by twin 375 HP Detroit engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. This super comfortable vessel has 2 toilets, a kitchen, air conditioned lounge area, and enough beds for everyone to rest after several hours of fishing.

The type of fish you will target depends on the time of year and the Caribbean currents. There are also different fishing methods you will use – you can do fast trolling for the rapid Wahoo and Mahi Mahi, drifting for Sailfish, and bottom fishing for large Grouper and Snapper. You can also have Barracuda, Tuna, Permit, or Marlin hooked!

The crew will clean and fillet your catch, but it doesn’t end there – the captain owns a restaurant nearby and you can ask him to cook and serve it for you. Nothing better than a fresh meal that you have just reeled in!

If snorkeling is your thing, they got you covered. Snorkeling equipment is available on the boat, just mention it to the captain before the trip. The crew will provide your Penn fishing equipment, prepare live bait in advance, and stack the fridge with water, soda, and rum punch.

Get in touch with Makin It Reel team and make your dream Belize excursion a reality!

Making it Reel charters has a wonderful crew: Jr. is the Captain. They also have Shamir, Keon, Shaquille, and Horace Jr. They have all lived in Belize their entire lives and know the waters like the back of their hands. The crew's favorite fish to catch is Wahoo and large Tuna. They love taking on beginners and teaching them all the ins and outs of fishing.
