The vast majority of anglers come to Southern Belize to pursue permit. Permit are plentiful and are found on the pancake flats and the outer cayes of “Permit Alley”. You can expect plenty of shots at 5-20 pound permit on any given day. There are few places in the world you can expect to have more shots at permit. What makes Permit Alley so unique, is the number of tailing permit you will encounter in a given week. The majority of the permit shots will be to tailing fish. A tailing permit is a feeding permit. And you should expect to have 80% or more of the permit you see to be tailing.
While the area is most well known for the permit, there are impressive numbers of bonefish. The most common place to see bonefish is on the flats near the cayes or on select reef flats. On an average day on the flats, any time of year, you will see and fish to schools of bonefish in the 2-5 pound range. These fish tend to be in large schools; however, there are singles and doubles if you are interested in more challenging casting. Our guides can consistently find schools of bonefish, even during low tides and weather conditions that limit the encounters with permit.
Tarpon are present in the fishery throughout the year, in select channels and protected island lagoons. The tarpon migration is generally from late April through August in this part of Belize, with the channels and cayes in the South Water Caye Marine Reserve getting robust schools of tarpon during the migration. There is considerably less pressure in these waters then in the more famous reaches of Northern Belize. The tarpon in this fishery tend to be ‘eaters’ not ‘lookers’.

Approximately 25 miles of permit flats...
Permit is the word of the day on the NW side of Roatan. Mostly poling large deeper grass flats for cruising and feeding permit. Water depth ranges from 1'-8' over mostly turtle grass so medium weight WEEDLESS flies. Occasionally we step out to wade. Tevas and keens are adequate for our wading needs. Bonefish numbers have been increasing with a few shots a day available.
Occasionally we run into big cudas as well. So a few cuda flies are always good to have handy.
Spinning gear is a great way to target permit too. We use 12lb gear with live crabs or soft baits such as Berkley gulp shrimp and crabs. I prefer 1/0 circle hooks and some light split shot.
8-10 wt rods with good reels. Weedless crab and mantis shrimp patterns in browns and greens. Floating lines and 12' 15-20lb leaders as well as a spool of 15-20lb fluorocarbon tippet.
Fishing rods and reels are also available to anyone wishing to not carry all the extra gear.
6 Nights/5 Days of Fishing
There is nothing more impressive than feeling the line come tight and watching a 100lb Tarpon come rocketing into the air or tail walking across the water with your fly in its mouth!
This is why we call these fish the "Silver King".
Nowhere in the world are your chances of landing a Tarpon over 100lb or hooking into a tarpon of 200 pounds more likely than in Southern Costa Rica.
The Tarpon fishery here caters to all levels of fly fisherman from the beginner to the expert, from blind casting to sight casting.
These fish are their biggest bi-catch while fishing for Tarpon around the Sixoala River mouth. These aggressive and explosive fish will be so thick at times, that the Tarpon can't even get to the fly! Fish as large as 30 pounds can be caught and are surprisingly strong, even on a 12 wt..
The snook fishery comes in few forms. While fishing in close to the river mouth for tarpon, you have a shot at some monster snook getting to the fly. Take a day fishing the Gondoca lagoon for snook anywhere from small fries to medium size fish. Some of the beaches along Gondoca beach can can also hold snook and be worth making some casts into.
Take the TRIGGER FISH CHALLENGE!! Test your stalking skills for tailing trigger fish on the shallow reef directly in front of the lodge. This is a fun game and can test your patience. With calm conditions you can find these fish either tailing on the reef or watch there backs move through the water while they dash from reef to reef in search of crabs and crustacians. In addition to the trigger fish, you can also incounter Parrot fish found on the same reefs.
