Belize River Lodge, Belize 02-22-1998

If you've ever thought about pursuing tarpon or are one of the lucky few that has successfully trailed this mighty fish, you probably know that a thousand things can go wrong, and often do. Poor technique, lacks-adaisically tied knots, or mediocre equipment are often recipes for failure. To successfully boat a tarpon, nearly everything has to go right, and the first "right" thing you must do, before all the others, is select an area that has lots of tarpon, tracked by great guides using proper boats and equipment.

Let us introduce you to Belize River Lodge. Belize River Lodge is located on the Belize River only 15 minutes from the Belize International Airport. The lodge, its location carved from the lush tropical foliage of the jungle, is well situated to access some of the best saltwater fly and light tackle opportunities in the world. From the lodge you have a great variety of both settings and species. You can pursue tarpon and snook in the jungle rivers and creeks and also along the Belize coastline. If permit and bonefish are your quarry, you'll spend your time among the mangrove channels and coastal flats. Barracuda and snapper are found on the reefs and in the cuts between channels.

There are two ways to fish those areas from Belize River Lodge. The first is to stay in the beautiful lodge and enjoy the superb dining and service that our clients, to a person, have raved about. If you choose this option you'll leave daily with experienced, professional, English-speaking guides who are known for fishing hard and late if you so desire. Their boats are well maintained and perfect for these waters.

For a more personalized and adventuresome (although a bit more expensive) fishing experience, the second option is to stay aboard one of the lodge's 3 cabin cruisers that accommodate groups from 2-6 people and range in size from 42-58 feet. Your guide travels with you and tows his skiff behind the cruiser. If permit are you quarry, you'll cruise south in search of this elusive and legendary fish. If you wish to fish for tarpon or bonefish or snorkel the reef, simply tell your crew and your needs will be accommodated. Travel comfortably to remote locations that can only be accessed by these motor yachts. Each cruiser is air conditioned and carries safe drinking water. Customize your trip as you wish, and take your meals (whether at the lodge or on board) around fishing times. You can fish to your hearts content each and every day.

Whether you chose to stay at the tropical lodge or retire to the luxurious setting of your "floating resort", we know you will be delighted with Belize River Lodge. Belize River Lodge is also an excellent place to bring companions who are a little less avid about fishing. Eco-tours, Mayan ruins, and excellent wildlife viewing are all within easy reach. We heartily recommend Belize River Lodge and encourage you to call us for more details and a free brochure.
