Belize’s bonefish tend to be smaller than other countries; however, they're very plentiful. Bonefish within this ecosystem vary from 2 to 8 pounds, with the majority being approximately three pounds. As a note, bonefish are considered to be one of the most powerful fish for its size.
Belize River Guides and Boats
Fish from 23' fiberglass panga skiffs. There are usually two anglers to a skiff along with an experienced, licensed guide. One angler fishes at a time – the rotation can be set by caught fish, casts to fish or time. The guides will help ensure each angler has equal time to fish throughout the day. Permit, bonefish, and tarpon are always released. One snook (guide restrictions on size) can be kept, and barracuda and grouper may be kept for the table.
