The Fishin' Magician: Go Fish Belize

Print Article

Dave Graybill

I just got back from a week in Belize, fishing for bonefish, permit and tarpon. My wife Eileen and took a group of eight along with us, and we all had a ball. We fished for four days with guides from Go Fish Belize and everyone caught bonefish. Some of us caught permit, and tarpon eluded us on this trip.

One day the gals went snorkeling and then had a shore lunch prepared by one of the people from Go Fish Belize. This was a nice break from the fishing and the sun for them and they thoroughly enjoyed it. One of the couples liked Ambergris Caye so much that they spent a day looking for a place to take their family and stay for a few weeks.

It's a great place to go whether you fish or not, but it's my favorite destination for fishing flats. I had never caught a permit on my previous trips and that was a personal goal this time. One day Richard Robinson and I hooked twelve and landed eleven! I doubt that I will ever do this again. It was terrific.

My plan is to take a group to Costa Rica in December. Now I am headed to Chelan and then to Rufus Woods now that I am home.
