Caye Caulker, Belize

Background
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 at a young age (14) and from there on my life has always been about fishing. I know the waters around Caye Caulker like the palm of my hand. I have experienced with many of my clients some of the best experiences fishing in these beautiful waters of Caye Caulker, Belize. You never know what to expect!!! ( Note: 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!).
Techniques
I love drop line fishing. My techniques are so many which I have perfected and even invented on my own.

I have been on just about every type of ocean fishing trip. Our trip with Captain Esley is among the best. We caught fish all day, several different techniques. Yellow snapper, barracuda, mackerel and he even took me diving for lobster. On the way out we swam with nurse sharks and sting rays. This was my first time to Belize and I will be coming back, probably every year. And you better bet I am booking my fishing trips with Esley every time!

I can’t really give a review of esley usher as he was under the weather and was not our guide. We were greeted at the dock with no prior notice by a friendly gentleman and his son. We were taken around to a few spots and caught a lot of undersized snappers . As they say a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.

We did a half day of reef fishing. Before we got started we went lobstering for about an hour. It was a blast. We than went for snapper, Spanish mackerel, and finally trolled for Kuda. It was a great day and Esley is a great guy. He knows the area and how to get on the fish.

Esley provided us with an authentic fishing trip. He took out just our family on his boat.  His boat is small which made it more of a personal experience.  First he went by the mangroves to catch sardines to be used for bait, then headed out to the reef.  After, he took us back to his dock where he filleted the barracuda right on the dock for us. It was a great day!

I had a great time fishing for snappers on the 4 hour charter trip.  We caught a lot of good eating fish (all snappers, reds and lanes).  I plan to go out again with Esley in two or three weeks (I live in Corozal).  He knows where to go to put you on the fish you target.

It was awesome. We caught our dinner. Esley did a great job. We even messed around at the end and he showed me how to fish handline. I caught a grouper handling! It was awesome. He’s a great guide and has been fishing the island since birth!

Thank you! I’m very glad you guys enjoy your time out with me! Hope that you guys come back to the island soon! Thanks once again! Tight lines!

Esley picked us up as he promised.  He was patient with our fishing, and patient with our questions.  We snorkeled for a little while in the afternoon.  When we were done, he dropped us off, took our catch to a nearby restaurant where they cooked it for us that night.
Esley was professional, knowledgeable, and we had a good time.
Thanks, Esley & Liz!
