Esley Usher Fishing - Agua Mala

Elsey Usher Fishing operates around the stunning Caye Caulker, taking groups out to explore Belize’s unique scenery and enjoy its incredible angling. Captain Elsey Usher has been fishing here since he was a kid and knows all the best spots to bring in some monsters, whatever style of fishing you’re after.

Capt. Elsey prides himself on the variety of trips he offers. Pick a half or full day trip. Choose between the reefs and the bluewaters. Pull in some tasty Yellowtail Snapper in the shallows or drop lines for deep-water Grouper and even Swordfish. However you spend the day, you never have to go far in these deep, warm waters.

You will be fishing aboard Capt. Elsey’s 25’ Imemsa center console, the “Agua Mala.” The boat is powered by a clean-burning Honda engine to get you to the fishing grounds without the smelly diesel fumes. Once you get there, you’ll be given quality fishing tackle and a choice of lures of live bait fresh from the tank to tempt in even the fussiest fish.

Everyone is warmly welcomed aboard the Agua Mala, from families and kids to seasoned sportfishers. As long as you can swim, Capt. Elsey would love to show you his native seas. He provides snacks and drinks on every trip and even throws in a tasty lunch on full day charters.

Making your time onboard special is a point of pride for Capt. Elsey. He can meet you at a convenient dock on Caye Caulker and will fillet all your fish after your trip. As an added bonus, he can take you to the local Tarpon sanctuary to hand feed the Silver King himself. This is setting up to be a truly unforgettable fishing trip.

From a small boy living on an island of Caye Caulker, I loved the Caribbean Waters. My father taught me everything I know. I started fishing when I was 14 years old and from there on my life has always been about fishing. I know the waters around Caye Caulker like the back of my hand. I have shown many of my clients some of the best experiences in these beautiful waters of Caye Caulker, Belize. You never know what to expect! Please note that Caye Caulker is 45 minutes away from Belize City. For cruise ship passengers interested in fishing with me, you would have to take the water taxi from Belize City to Caye Caulker - and you would only have time for a half day fishing then take the water taxi once again to get back to Belize City port on time!
