Bonefish Fishing in Belize

Bonefish
  • Size 4 to 6lbs
  • Food Value None
  • Game Qualities Excellent
  • Habitats Flats, Backcountry, Inshore

(Albula vulpes)

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 anglers said about Bonefish Fishing in Belize

Bring plenty of strong insect repellent not for the boat but for Ambergris Caye. The island has lots of standing water and trash everywhere and we were not able to go outside day or night without spraying down with repellent. We will not be going back to this island which is unfortunate because we had a great time once we were out on the boat.

Be patient. If the wind isnt moving, it gets very hot, and the fish are able to see swivel/weights/etc. As soon as the wind picked up a little, we moved back to the spot we started at, and caught the fish that wouldn’t bite in the morning.

Fishing in San Pedro you are sure to catch a variety of fish on the reef using live bait like snapper, triggerfish and barracuda. Don't sit around the resort pool all day... Get out and fish!

Communicate with your captain on expectations and what kind of fishing you'd like to do prior to meeting. They are more than happy to accommodate when possible.

The wahoo and Marlin bite has slowed down for the season but the barracuda was good! Started picking up some grouper and mahi mahi! Our boat caught a huge bull!

Bring your own gear but get on the flats with a good guide day 1. You'll learn bait, locations and what's biting from the charter and then apply it to DIY fishing for later days.

The area is beautiful. You can fish either within the reef or past the reef. Be sure to specify with the boat captain what type of fish you are looking to catch. We had a great time.

Plan a few days this time of year. Wind prevented a few trips offshore if that’s what you are looking for. It’s a nice place.

We had a great day with lots of fish and only moderate winds. The captains work diligently to maintain sustainable practices and the fishery has prospered from reduced tourism during Covid. Adding San Pedro to my list of recurring stops.

It was great fun. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Placencia. Our Captain Grayson Sierra and his mate Brian were fun and attentive and service oriented.

Making it threw the reef channel can be quite rough, but the remainder of the trip was well worth it.

We fished spinning gear and I brought my own. If you fish with Nano you dont have to bring spinners, I left him 2 brand new set ups. Seems like alot of people fly fish for bonefish here. I dont know anything about that. But you would have had alot of opportunities

If new to fly fishing in salt water do your homework. It's not the same as fishing for trout or salmon but that's also what makes it interesting.
