The full trip report is in the making but I thought I would post this quick video montage I pulled together from our recent travels to Pelican Beach Resort – Southwater Caye in Belize. I cannot say enough good things about this castaway island as a family or couple friendly fishing destination that is reasonably priced yet idyllic in every way.
The fishing here is super accessible with tailing bones right in front of your private bungalow style accommodation, you could even see them from the comfort of your own bed. The large flat on the western side was loaded with mid sized Bonefish and my partner and 6 month old daughter could watch me roam the skinny waters from the comfort of the balcony.
The Bones on this flat were pretty spooky and had obviously seen their share of fisherman in the past, that said however they rolled over for the right presentation. The reef front was also home to plenty of Snapper, Barracuda and Triggerfish. Wandering the Caye North would also no doubt uncover a Permit or too.
While you could spend a week self guiding on foot from the comfort of your accommodation, local guides are also available to hit the numerous atolls in the area for Permit, Tarpon and more Bones. This place is the perfect family destination for the fishing fanatic who has to balance family and fishing!
Stay tuned for the full report and photos, in the mean time check them out here:
