This years Anglers World Holidays group trip to Belize was based at Roberts Grove, Placencia. The perfect location to run offshore to fish the plethora of flats and small cayes in Southern Belize, Roberts Grove proved to be an excellent choice providing wonderful accommodation, great food and outstanding service. Certainly Roberts Grove will be our choice for accommodation for all future trips to Belize.
We had six full days fishing and myself and boat partner Andrew Leaves caught tarpon on every single day. The average size of the tarpon we caught was between 25-50lb, with Andrew catching the largest of the trip, a superb 80lb fish.
Bonefish are prolific throughout Belize and we caught plenty, even though we spent very little time fishing for them.
Variety was provided by catching some great jacks of various species, along with snapper, but with the tarpon fishing so good, naturally that was the major focus of our attention on every day. Derek ‘Del’ Elliott caught a specimen 16lb snook on fly and a stunning 21lb African Pompano on bait, and along with boat partner Ray Jennings also got plenty of tarpon and other species.
