Sterling Fishing Charter

Sterling Fishing Charters offer a selection of unique fishing experiences to suit any taste in the much undiscovered beauty of northern Belize. Based out of the village of Bomba, you will be just an hour north of Belize City, but still in the depths of the jungle, and within easy reach not just of the riverways themselves, but also the coastal lagoons and natural reefs out to sea.

You will be fishing aboard a 28 foot Sea King center console which is perfect for navigating the rivers, while still stable enough to get out to the reefs. She comes equipped with GPS, live bait, and fishing tackle, though it is recommended to bring your own.

Sterling Charters run trips either along the Northern River and down to the coastal lagoons targeting Mangrove Snapper, Tarpon and Jacks, into the shallows and flats for Bonefish, or out to the reefs for Barracuda and a whole range of other reef fish. All Sterling guides speak English, and have over 30 years of fishing experience.
