Placencia Fishing Charters – Fly/Spin Fishing

Belize is world-famous for its incredible underwater coral reefs. As well as being stunning to look at, they also offer up some seriously exciting fishing! With species such as Snappers, Groupers, and even Mahi Mahi calling these waters home, you’ll need an experienced guide to explore them. Placencia Fishing Charters’ Placencia-born Captain Leslie Faux is just the guy for the job!

Capt. Leslie’s passion for angling started when he was a child. He grew up in a family of fishermen: his brothers, step-father, and grandfather are all keen anglers, and their love for the sport definitely rubbed off on him. He takes pride in what he does, and loves introducing guests to these incredible waters, and the colorful fish that call them home!

You’ll be casting off from your captain’s 23’ Isabal Marine Lanchon skiff, perfectly built to explore these waters. She can accommodate up to 6 guests, so invite along your best angling buddies, or make this a family trip to remember. Children are warmly welcomed aboard! Your vessel is also decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear, meaning you’ll have a secure and comfy journey to the reefs.

Reef fishing in Placencia means coming face-to-gills with a whole host of colorful, tasty fish. Depending on the trip you opt for and the time of year you visit, you’ll have the chance to target prized species such as Snappers, Groupers, Barracuda, Amberjack, and even Mahi Mahi. Capt. Leslie will have you trying out a range of techniques to hook your catch, including popping, jigging, and bottom fishing.

Your trip includes top-quality Penn, Ugly Stik, and Yuzuri rods and reels, as well as braided-line tackle – this will come in handy if you find a huge hard-fighter at the end of your line! Your captain will also provide a fishing license for your group, as well as snacks, drinks, and lunch on the full day trip.

It’s time to come and discover the magic of fishing Belize’s stunning reefs yourself aboard Placencia Fishing Charters!

Captain Edlin Leslie Jr. is a 4th generation Placencia fisherman. His love and passion for fishing are a testament to the commitment of the legacy of his dad, grandfather, and great grandfather. 

When compared to those of his generation,​ Captain Edlin’s experience of the sea is unsurpassed! 
The captain turned his love of fishing, the thrill of the chase, and his passion for the craft into a career, versatile in the various fishing techniques from deep sea and inner reef fishing, Lobster, couch and crab hunting, to fly fishing and spin casting. He has become widely known for not just fishing but catching.
