Fishing Near Ambergris Caye

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.
