Placencia Belize Fishing
Great weather, a relaxed atmosphere, and plenty of action are all part of the Belize fishing experience. Being only minutes away from one of the most prolific blue water ecosystems in Belize, fishing at Hatchet Caye is divine. The water around the island is thriving with bait fish which attracts larger fish such as permits, tarpons and bonefish. This means that it’s possible for an angler to get a Grand Slam right from the island without going on a tour! Please note that any fish caught from the island is catch & release.
Alternatively, you can take a tour out to the abundant reef and enjoy great fishing in the Gladden Spit. Join us on some of the finest flats for fly fishing & deep sea fishing grounds in the country. Anglers can enjoy resort amenities along with their fishing adventure. There’s no longer a need to endure cold lunches and warm beers; after an exciting morning fishing trip, simply come back to the restaurant for a full lunch.
To help you make the most of your fishing experience, the experts at Hatchet Caye have organized a fishing calendar to show which months are best for different species and types of fishing in the waters near our island resort. Click the link below to download.
