Re: First Bonefish Trip Fly Rod and Reel Suggestions

You said you're going to Belize, but didn't say where (unless I missed it).

I'll be there starting later this week, fishing around South Water Caye (off Dangriga) until late May. If you get down...

Re: Belize: Belize River Lodge vs Coco Plum

Too bad your trip was less than you expected.
That's why I recommend Blue Marlin Lodge. I'll be there in 3 weeks, and I've never had a bad experience. They have no guides of their own for...

Re: Puerto Rico fishing?

Wow, your must be fishing with the guidebook in your left hand. That's a lot of diversity. Cool.

I often catch wrasses on flies in Belize, especially when after Bonefish over rubble. I'm up to...

Re: Help identify this fish (grouper?)

I didn't notice those spots on the bottom lip in your pics at first. But now I can see one of them. That's diagnostic. Looks like a Coney for sure!

Mark it down! :teef:

Re: Help identify this fish (grouper?)

Pattern looks like Coney, but overall more like a Graysby.

Good mystery, and I admit I'm stumped.

Re: Reports of illegal bonefish harvesting

Bonefish are eaten in much of the Caribbean, and are considered a traditional food among Garifuna people of coastal Belize. They are protected in Belize too (as in the Bahamas), but locals take them...

Re: Waterton Canyon trip report

Not much enthusiasm in the wife pic: drooped posture; loose line.

You'd better find a way to entice the fish to bite her line, or you'll be biking more, fishing less.

Re: What to wear under Simms Flats Sneakers?

This is a good point.
Better yet, use large rubber bands. I made some wide rubber bands from a bicycle inner tube. Very handy for this.

Re: Do you know your state fish?

I'm in Oxford, MS.
I agree, I thought the 'speckled trout' was recognized as such. But then, since the true name is "Spotted Seatrout", maybe not!

I lived in Louisiana when a bill came before...

Re: to tie in a weedguard or not??

As I posted in another thread about Belize, weedless flies are very-much necessary in Belize. Turtlegrass beds are widespread in Belize, and the bones often feed right in them.

I spend most of my...

Re: Car keys ...... God I hate when I do this ...

You know the guy spent days walking the hills looking for it.
Hard to believe it was simply left there, though.
It'd be a fun thread to propose a 1-paragraph story to explain it.

Re: rivers 2, me 0

Indeed, prayers for a speedy and complete recovery.
Time for you to sit at the table and tie a few flies!

Re: Oil found IN Yellowstone Fish

Disappointing for sure.
But we already knew there was a pipeline break and spill, right? Not a surprise that it gets into the food chain.
Plus, keep in mind that petroleum could come from MANY...

My favorite poaching story was in south Louisiana. A friend of mine told it, about his grandfather.

Apparently his grandfather had developed a taste for Cattle Egrets; those white birds that...

Re: Family/ Flyfishing combination trip

I agree. Much more appealing region for fishing than farther north (e.g., Ambergris), and more feel of Belize (less touristy). Fun shopping, eating, and relaxing. If you go to Placencia, take the...

Wow, true?

Here in Mississippi we've had a brief respite from winter, but now plunge back into COLD. Snow is in the forecast; yes, here.

I'll bet those bears beat a path back to their dens...

Bravo!

Many more of these Belize threads, and the place will get crowded. But for now there's plenty of room. Thanks for posting.
