Trip Report Belize slam

Spent couple weeks in Belize. Travel was a bit of a hassle due to covid but doable. Like everywhere business is hurting. One place I stayed had only 2 guests where 20 would be normal. The other place had 6 guests but none the following week. Crime is also up. Saw many more armed guards at marinas and some businesses.

Fishing, however, was good. Bonefishing was good to excellent and relatively easy. Tarpon fishing was fair, good when could find them but not much bait fish around and thus fewer tarpon. Permit was permit - meaning harder than steelhead. Saw lots of permit but only one caught in 5 days. If you are desperate can be caught with live crabs or conch but a real challenge with flies.

Few pics.

No. I just fish around the islands. I get sea sick real easy and Warren mostly fishes outside with spinning gear, especially for wahoo.
