At one time, fishing was how locals made their living. When tourism took hold, the fishing industry became secondary, and even a major part of the tourism industry. Today many tourists visit specifically to take advantage of the shallow flats which are known to produce incredible numbers of tarpon and bone fish. May through November are peak months, but there is rarely a bad day to go fishing.
If you are intrigued by the idea of spending some time with a rod in your hand, you will find 10 different charter fishing operators that can help you find the best fishing spots.
If you want to organize a fishing trip, you can check with Freedom Tours. Deep sea, reef, fight, and night fishing are all available with Freedom Tours. Fishing trips include all of your necessary equipment. They are located within San Pedro, in southern Ambergris Caye.
