Take Me Fishing 

Fishing is a thriving sport in Belize. From deep-sea fishing , inner reef trolling to fly fishing, there is a type of fishing for everyone. The estuaries, inlets, and mouths to the many rivers are known for their tarpon, snook, and jacks. The coral reefs support grouper, snapper, jacks, and barracuda while the deeper waters of the drop off are home to sailfish, marlin, bonito, and pompano. When looking at the fishing calendar, fish are around year-round. Nevertheless, at certain months’ species of fish are more abundant than others.
