Watching a light spray come over the bow of my kayak heading across the bay with two clients paddling behind me. A beautiful Spotted Eagle Ray looking for a handout of free food greets me. I oblige and motion to my fishermen to paddle over. Digging in my spare compartment I withdraw a handful of shrimp that I keep in a bait bucket for just such occasions. Learning to the side and offering my hand a few inches below the surface the big “bird of the deep” passes by effortlessly inhaling the shrimp resting in my palm. What a great close to a day of kayaking and fishing these beautiful turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

I give my guys a moment to store their cameras in the dry bags before we push on towards the last stretch to home. Each stroke of my paddle I relax to the slight gurgle produced as I draw it back. Birds along the mangrove-lined shores are calling loudly announcing the approaching close of yet another day. I’m daydreaming that I must be in heaven. Interrupted by a roar of laughter from clients I tune into their conversation to hear them reminiscing over one of the fish they caught while stalking and paddling the flats earlier today. I’m instantly taken back to the sound of a singing reel being stripped of line, the smiles on the faces of enthused anglers, and the excitement as they pose with their first Belize flats fish. This is my heaven. It’s what I love most about sharing flats fishing with anglers on this tropical island off the coast of Belize.

I often tell people that I can turn anyone into a five year old in a split second. That split second they hook up with their first bonefish, permit, or tarpon. Man or woman, everyone giggles like a five year old. Couple that experience with paddling through gin-clear water with the warmth of the tropical trades caressing your skin under a clear blue sky and you begin to understand why people adopt a “tropical latitude” and return time and time again. It’s the reason I made the permanent move myself. Constant day dreams of shadows moving in from deeper waters, schooling noses in the sand and tails breaking the waters surface filled my head so often that I finally gave in and let go.

If you’re ready to develop you own “Tropical Latitude” and love kayaking and fishing then come visit. I can promise you’ll have the time of your life. From sun-up and well past sun down the Caribbean island of Ambergris Caye is all about fun. Sun soaked days harassing fish on fly or spinning and rum soaked evenings filled with great friends, good music, and excellent food will have you booking return trips as well.

I hope you’ve been inspired to get out there and do some fishing. And if the weather doesn’t permit, then head over to the airport and hop on the next silver bird that’s south bound. And remember, although the fishing is excellent year round. However, wit the migrating HUGE TARPON, and the overly aggressive permit schooling for spawning as well as the same with the bonefish. The summer is when Belize fishing is absolutely world famous. So if you’re ready to get into some fish and paddle through one of the prettiest places on the planet then check out Belize.

I look forward to fishing with you all soon.

In recent years you probably have probably begun to notice a increase of cars with kayak racks on-top the roofs at your favorite local waters. Since the mid nineties more and more people have started using their sit-on-top kayaks to fish with.

I was first introduced to Kayak Fishing when my best fishing buddy and I stumbled across a small cut that lead back to a flats area that not even my 18 foot flats skiff couldn’t make it back to. For several months we’d stand on the bow of the casting deck and peer through this cut in the mangrove with my best binoculars and watch as fifty to sixty tailing bonefish would dart around as they would feed. On several occasions we attempted to wade into the flat. However, the bottom composition at the head of this area was comprised of nothing but silt mud and ever step you’d sink knee deep.

One day I’m sitting around watching tv just relaxing when the phone rings. On the other end is my partner Jim whom proceeds to order me up early the next day and to meet him on his dock with my panga skiff and not the flats boat. I asked if he wanted to go scouting for new waters. Typically we use the panga as it only has a 60 hp on it and uses very little gas and can take rather large seas. He said he’s got a solution to our problem with the new flats areas that we can’t reach by skiff.

Promptly the next morning I’m off my dock by 5:30 as the sun begins to rise up over the horizon and I enter into the lagoon and point her north as I proceed towards Jim’s house. As i pull through the channel and round the mangroves I see Jim standing on his dock with kayaks turned on their sides and leaning against a piling. I immediately knew we were catching those bones today.

That was my introduction to fishing from kayaks. It was half born out necessity and half out of a better way to actually stalk the flats for fish. It’s been over a year now since Jim discovered the sport of kayak fishing on-line that afternoon and immediately got us into it. I must say the largest bonefish I’ve yet to catch in Belize was while I was kayak fishing. It makes a lot of sense when looking at it logically. My flats boat makes noise as wind drives waves against the fiberglass hull which will amplify since their is open spaces inside the hull. my kayak will get me into shallow waters that my skiff can’t go. This also means NO other skiffs have gone as well. The fish in these little flats areas are super aggressive here in Belize. And if it weren’t for Kayak Fishing then no-one would have the opportunities to catch and fight these fish.
