Bonefish

  • Habitats Flats, Backcountry, Inshore

Belize might be the best place on the planet to get your saltwater "Grand Slam". The hundreds of square miles of flats within these waters host abundant Bonefish, Tarpon and Permit and catching all three within a day is very plausible in this tropical fishing paradise.

Flats wading in these waters is a great experience and is best done throughout the Turneffe Atoll (where you can even find the occasional golden Bonefish) or Ambergris Caye.

What People Are Saying About Bonefish Fishing in Belize

"June fishing trip"

Mark Grigsby fished with Nano Guerrero on June 27, 2018

Great day of fishing! He works hard, knows the water well and very good at sight fishing. Could have caught more Bonefish if we were quicker to see the fish and more skilled at making precise cast. This was my first time Bonefishing and he was a great guide. Could not ask for more, book this trip!

"Three days fishing with Captain Nano."

Matthew Pollard fished with Nano Guerrero on May 29, 2018

Captain Nano was very knowledgeable of the areas we fished. Conditions were mixed for visibility. Opportunities for permit were few as were tarpon. We caught a few bonefish and did have a good time. Beautiful area. I would book Nano again. He worked very hard for us.

"Full day trip with Daniel."

John Campbell fished with Daniel Cabral’s Fly Fishing on January 3, 2017

I wish I had practiced my long casting more before going. However, I got the hang of it eventually. We were originally going to try to fish the flats but the tides did not cooperate. Even so, Daniel put us on to a large school of bonefish in about 20 feet of water. They were hungry and feisty. I had a great day in the end.
