Description

Try your hand at deep sea fishing aboard ‘Reel Deal’, a fully equipped 38 ft boat built locally specifically for blue water fishing around Belize. The boat is furnished with a cabin with an enclosed ‘head’, a fighting chair, outriggers and downriggers, and also features a 10 foot canopy to ward off the heat stroke. Up to six lines can be trolled at the same time, giving you the best possible chance of catching a fish.

Due to Belize’s nearshore drop off, it only takes 20 minutes to get to deep sea fishing grounds. This means even short trips can be productive, although you’re always in with the best chance of catching the fish of a lifetime on a full day trip! Fish usually targeted on these trips include Mahi-mahi, Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo and White and Blue Marlin.

Freedom Tours Fishing Unlimited is owned and operated by Capt. ‘Hillyboo’ Lara, an experienced captain who has been fishing the area for 25 years and is also an experienced and successful tournament fisherman. Both he and his staff will do everything they can to put you on to the fish of the lifetime!

At the end of the day the crew will clean and fillet your catch ready for you to have it cooked at one of the excellent seashore restaurants in the area. Soft drinks, water and ice are included in the price, as is lunch on full day trips.

The crew was knowledgeable and curious.  We did not expect to catch much offshore in late December and we didn’t.  We just caught barracudas but the crew did try hard to find fish.

First and foremost, I did want to say that we did catch some fantastic Mahi Mahi and Barracudas. The battles were awesome! I wanted to mention that the captain himself, was there to pick us up from the hotel and greet us. However, he did not join us for the tour and left his sons to take us out. I wished that this was made clear before booking the service. The boat ride was very rocky and caused all of us to be a little nauseous. My cousin, who wanted to go on the trip the most, got really sick and wasn’t able to enjoy the the experience at all. The crew on the boat were nice, but there was very little interaction with us. They did seem to know what they were doing. As a whole, the experience was fine, but the for the money, I have had much better times out deep sea fishing.

i can honestly say that yes, that day it was quite choppy, but that is something i cannot control. my son has been fishing with me for 15 years and is a licensed captain already and he knows what he is doing. and as they say, we did put them on to fish, which they enjoyed. and i hate saying this, but hangovers and fishing does not work! only for chumming! and that is part of the big reason why they got sick.  stay off the booze the day before u go fishing! especially deepsea. just a little advice to anyone that wants to do deepsea. thanks for the review. appreciate your comments.
