Spin Fishing Charters in Placencia

The warm waters in and around Belize’s great barrier reef, the second largest barrier reef in the world, offer world-class fishing for many different species using conventional gear.
 

FISHING GEAR & MAIN TARGET SPECIES
If you’re interested in  reef fishing, we use conventional fishing gear and target snapper, grouper, mackerel, wahoo, cobia, jacks, bonita, barracudas and tuna either by trolling, bottom fishing or spin casting using artificial lures and/or bait.

MEAL PLAN

You also have the  option to cook your catch for a delicious, mouthwatering fresh lunch prepared on a private island. The joy of catching and cooking your own lunch adds an unforgettable dimension to your fishing experience.

 

OTHER TARGET SPECIES
We also target permit, tarpon, bonefish and snook in different types of water using spin fishing rigs. You don’t have to be a fly fisher to catch these trophy fish!

Whether you want to fish for a week or just a day we can work out a trip that suits your needs. All Gears are provided for your spin fishing tour.

  • OTHER ESSENTIALS TO CONSIDER BRINGING:
    Sunglasses Sunglasses are one of the most important pieces of equipment you need to have. You need them to see fish, period. We recommend polarized lenses in either copper, amber or brown. If they have side shields on them or they wrap around all the better. Bring a second pair just in case and also cleaning solution, clothes and wipes. Sunscreen Sunscreen is a must. You certainly don’t want to ruin your trip because you didn’t bring it and use it. We suggest 30 SPF at a minimum and it should be waterproof and sweatproof. Also, bring lip balm that is at least 30 SPF as well. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after applying sunscreen so that it doesn’t get on your leader, tippet or fly. Clothing You don’t need to bring a lot of clothing for Belize. It’s usually between 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit both day and night. Shorts, t-shirts, and a pair of long light weight pants will do it. Everything is casual in Belize so no worries about dressing properly. When fishing be sure to wear a long sleeve fishing shirt and long light weight pants that you can get wet. The sun is intense and it’s best to stay covered up. We also recommend a baseball style hat with a lightweight neck gaiter. The neck gaiter will protect your face and help to keep your hat on during windy boat rides. Some of our guests also like to wear sun gloves to protect their hands. Rain Gear It can rain at anytime in Belize so be prepared. Bring a lightweight waterproof rain jacket with a hood. It’s always wise to bring a few large garbage bags to cover your gear and luggage during the downpours. Footwear It’s flip flops when you’re not fishing but you’ll need to bring a pair of wading boots for fishing. When wading the flats you’ll encounter coral, sea urchins, shells and other sharp things that will cut your feet up. Do a little shopping and you’ll find flats booties or wading boots that are specially designed for fishing in saltwater – that’s what you’re looking for. Camera Equipment At minimum bring your cell phone so you can get some shots of you with your fish. If it’s not waterproof get a case for it that is. If you have high end cameras an lenses put them in waterproof cases to protect them. Tools Most of the time your guide will have the tools you’ll need while fishing; however, if you think you may do some fishing on your own we suggest putting together a toolkit of your own. Here are a few things to include: fishing pliers, multi-tool knife, forceps, hook file, nippers, flashlight, headlamp, set of eyeglass size screwdrivers and of course some duct tape. Travel Documents You must have a valid passport with you that is valid for at least six months beyond the duration of your stay in Belize. It’s always wise to make photocopies of your passport, driver’s license, travel insurance documents, credit cards and any other important documents and keep them somewhere different than where you keep the originals. Travel Insurance You never know what may happened in the world that could disrupt your travel plans so we suggest getting travel insurance. Global Rescue (https://www.globalrescue.com/) is a highly recommend company that should cover all situations.
