Value for money:

Owned and run by fourth-generation local fisherman Abbie Marin and his wife Marisela, GoFish Belize was set up in 1996 and has since grown into one of the leading fly-fishing guiding services in Belize and now includes a full service fly shop, private beachfront accommodations, and the ability to service fishing groups of up to 20 anglers. Reef fishing and deep-sea fishing trips are also offered.




The fishing

Abbie offers the full spectrum of Belize fishing options. You can pole the shallow, calm waters for tarpon, bonefish and permit (this is a great place to target the flats grand slam) or you can head into the backcountry, using light conventional tackle, lures, and/or live bait, to target traditional flats species along with snapper, barracuda, jacks, cobia and sharks. For a little family fun, you can head out to the reef and catch snapper, yellowtail, grouper and barracuda.

While most people will be sucked in by the flats and backcountry fishing here, it’s worth remembering that just beyond the reef, there’s some good deep-sea action, with the sport from the likes of wahoo, dorado, blue marlin, blackfin tuna, king mackerel, grouper and barracuda.

    Abbie is great. On the 18th of December 2012, hooked nine permit and landed eight. He worked hard to get the boat in the best position.
