Placencia Belize Fishing

John LindaSouthern Belize offers some of the best saltwater fly fishing, light tackle and trolling anglers can find anywhere, and the waters around Placencia (Dangriga south to Punta Gorda) are justifiably famous for permit - many anglers believe permit fishing here to be the best in the world.

Shane HaasBut southern Belize fishing isn't just about permit - other abundant species include bones, tarpon, snook, King Mackerel, tuna (Black- and Yellow- fin), snappers (Cubera, Mutton, Gray, Yellowtail),  Barracuda, Crevalle Jack, Grouper and Wahoo.

Local guides are well-known for their knowledge of local waters, general guiding ability and versatility.
