World Class

Fishing
Fishing in Belize is exciting, relaxing, entertaining, rewarding, and good for the soul. This is arguably one the best all around locations for the diversity of fishing opportunities in the world. Belize is hands-down a premiere world class fishing destination.

At Blue Marlin Beach Resort, there are plenty of shots to try your hand at catching some of the numerous catch-and-release species (fly fishing and sport fishing) or do some blue water fishing (trolling, spinning, spearfishing, deep sea fishing). You might even bring home your dinner — a meaty grouper, tasty yellowtail snapper, meaty barracuda, scrumptious tuna, or fleshy king fish–to grill up at the resort. This is truly a from sea-to-table dining experience.

There are amazing fishing spots all along the inner and outer reef.  In the inner reef along coral patches and turtle grass beds, we can teach you about traditional handline fishing and catching sardine bait with a cast net in the mangroves. This is a hands-on, adrenaline-filled, full-or half-day adventure on the sea. The inner reefs are eager to please, offering up a rich selection of Mutton, Cubera, and Yellowtail Snappers, Groupers, Mackerels, Bonito, and much more. The outer reef offers exciting opportunities for the larger species such as Mahi Mahi and Blue Marlin.

All of our seafood at Charlie’s Dining and Bar is supplied by local fishermen and caught by line or freediving– no gill nets or drag nets. And our guests learn about traditional and sustainable fishing techniques on our tours.

“The best part is the location right on edge of reef with excellent bone fishing off dock on west side, and quick access to deep sea fishing on east side. No need to waist a lot of time getting to fish, they're right off the island! We spend most of our vacation time fishing, and this is a spot we'll continue to come back to.”
