World-Class Flats Angling
Blue Bonefish Lodge
This hot new property on the Caribbean shores is getting rave reviews and why not. It’s warm, friendly and some of the best flats fishing for permit on the planet.
Blue Bonefish Lodge has taken roots on the southern end of Ambergris Caye and introducing some exciting new programs. They are packaging a seven-night trip with a number of interesting options for the accompanying six days of activities including of course world-class fishing but also, snorkeling, diving, paddleboards, kayaks and a visit to the Mayan ruins. This is a very unique concept that plays well for those who want a serious fishing operation and also for those who would like some additional options. The program that’s gets Trek’s attention is to stay the seven nights and combine five days of guided fishing along with a day to relax, or whatever comes to your mind. San Pedro Town is only a 15-minute golf cart ride away and lots to see and do there. T-shirts, sandals and a little disposable cash is all that is needed.
Trek has been plying the water’s around Ambergris for 25 years and has seen it grow from a small commercial fishing village with no paved roads to a booming tourist district with fancy brick pavers but what has been consistent through all this time is great flats fishing and good guides. Today these same guides are working but now are being challenged by the next generation of young and hungry guides and they are making their mark “big time”!!
Blue Bonefish’s manager Chris Leemon has these youngsters trained and ready to battle giant permit to 30 pounds or more and caught every week during the peak season February to June. Huge schools of bonefish are readily taken within a 15-minute Panga boat ride from Blue Bonefish on any day of the year and these young guides are ranging out further and further to match their wits against larger trophy size fish and our clients are loving it. Juvenile and adult tarpon can also be taken during the summer months when the trade winds slow. Backwater action for snook, Jack Crevalles and barracudas are also readily available.
Blue Bonefish features nine rooms, five in the main house and four in the adjacent villa all with private bath, A/C, hot water, ands balconies affording a 270-degree view of the Belize Barrier Reef and beyond. Each of the rooms and entire facility are smartly decorated using Belizean hardwoods, local tapestries and comfortable furniture and bedding. You will enjoy scrumptious meals of local seafood, meats and poultry as well as creole pastas. During your idle time, you may wish to take a stroll down the dock for a sundowner, take a dip in the Caribbean, enjoy a cocktail in the swim-up bar or treat yourself to an in-room massage. All this and more are waiting for you on this 10,000 feet square feet of warm sunshine and fun.
Blue Bonefish Lodge is easily accessible from the U.S. by using non-stop flights from Chicago, Newark, Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, Charlotte, Atlanta and Miami followed by a short 10-minute flight to San Pedro Town on Ambergris. The staff will greet you there and make the 15-minute drive to the lodge where the fun begins.
By Kevin Gehm – February 2013 As those who fish the blue water are well aware, Guatemala is the mountain top when it comes to high volume sailfish action. So, when I recently had an opportunity to take a long weekend to head down to visit with several Trek anglers,...
