Hardcore Fishing Charters – 31'

Hardcore Fishing Charters (HFC) is one of the only charter operators in the area that offer and promote catch and release of most species of fish. Unless fish is on your menu for dinner, they prefer to let them live to be caught and released another day.

All the fishing guides at Hardcore are third and fourth generation fishermen who know the Belizean waters and the full stretch of the barrier reef like the backs of their hands. Don’t worry – they will find the fish!

You’ll embark on this angling excursion on board their 31’ Cape Horn center console. Her design allows for 6 anglers to fish at the same time, all around the boat. She’s powered by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines that’ll get you on top of the fish in no time.

They offer deep sea fishing for Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna. They also do reef fishing for Wahoo, King Mackerel, Barracuda, Groupers and different species of Jacks.

The charter also runs a smaller boat, where they offer flats fishing for Bonefish, Tarpon, and Permit, as well as lagoon fishing for Tarpon, Snook, Jacks, and Snappers. Click on the captain’s picture below to explore this alternate offer.

He studied in Texas at the US Coast Guard school (Hudson Marine) where he obtained his 100-ton license, after which he started working on private yachts and became captain of a 61' Viking. He's traveled the world and did many fishing tournaments, now he's back home to where it all started! He and his team will do their best to make sure you have a memorable day on the water.
