Hardcore Fishing Charters- 23 ft

Westby St
Placencia, Belize

This vessel design is ideal for fishing the flats because of its shallow draft which allows it to access to the lagoons and shallow water areas which are great for fly fishing as well as spin casting among shallow patch reefs and lagoon tributaries. It’s a versatile vessel that can be used for many different types of fishing - these boats are widely used among local fishermen and charter businesses in our hemisphere.

On this boat you can join us for a fun trip spin fishing the reef, Cayes, or lagoon, fly fishing, or light tackle trolling for a variety of inshore species including Tarpon, Bonefish and Permit.

    If spin casting is your preferred way of fishing, this is the trip for you.

Capt Erwin Westby grew up in a small fishing village (placencia). He began fishing commercially at the early age of 15, to pay his way through school in Belize which led him to pursue being an international captain. He studied in Texas at the US coastguard school (Hudson Marine) where he obtained his 100 tonnes license, after which he started working on private yachts and became captain of a 61 viking. Traveled the world and did many fishing tournaments, now back home to where it all started!!

Weather wasn’t conducive to reef fishing. We fished the lagoons, and water was murky. No fault to the guide. George worked hard to find fish and was very knowledgeable. I would definitely request him again and go when conditions are more in our favor!

The captain was very knowledgeable and a true fly fishing guru, it was just a tuff day and the fish weren’t bighting, lots of followers not many takers.
