|Belize River Lodge - Belize
The lodge is strategically located so that you can always find fishing areas unaffected by Mother Nature. The fishing areas include the flats, the barrier reef, coastal bays and mangroves, numerous rivers and inland lagoons. Guests stay in the comfortable, well kept Mahogany Lodge, which is located in a setting of tropical greenery and colorful flowers on the bank of the Belize Olde River.
Fishing is from 23' fiberglass Panga skiffs, usually two anglers to a skiff with an experienced professional guide. The flats, cayes, reef, mangrove channels, Belize River, Sibun River, Manatee River, Black Creek, and several other creeks & lagoons in between are the areas fished from the Lodge in a normal five day fishing package. This is a very large area with a great variety of fishing conditions, fish species, and scenery. Game fish species generally found in this area include permit, tarpon, bonefish, snook, barracuda and others. Many species of birds and other wildlife such as Manatees, Howler Monkeys, Iguanas, Turtles, and occasionally Crocodiles may be seen while fishing from the Lodge. Comfortable skiffs, modern outboard engines, and English speaking, professional licensed guides help make this a memorable fishing vacation.
Great lodge, great food, unbelievable fishing and hard working guides make this trip very special.
The coast of Belize is a complex system of river mouths, creeks, lagoons, flats, small cays, mangrove islands, and the Barrier Reef. The eco system that exists here supports millions of crabs, shrimp, bait fish, and other aquatic life, which is why there is an abundance of game fish; Permit, Bonefish, Tarpon, Snook, Snappers, Jacks, Groupers, Cobia, and Barracudas, to name a few.
The Belize coast is world known for its Permit fishing. From the lodge, Permit range from 5 to over 30 pounds. The best time to fish for Permit is October through July. This fish is the ultimate fisherman's trophy.
Bonefish within this ecosystem vary from 2 to 8 pounds, with the majority being 4 to 6 pounds. Bone fishing is year round. Bonefish are considered to be one of the most powerful fish, per pound for its size.
Tarpon, the silver king, is one of the most acrobatic fish sought by anglers. These fish along the coast of Belize range from 5 to over 200 pounds. The bigger Tarpon are mainly found in the months of March through July and September through November. Smaller Tarpon (5 to 60 lbs) are found year round.
