The Fishing Report. July 9, 2015.



Up close and personal with MR. SILVER KING!

The GREEN FLASH OF SUNRISE brought us great luck this past Tarpon Season...

Here was a nice one...





The past few weeks have seen a strong migration of Tarpon rolling into the Flats for the Palalo Worm hatch. Permit were also Marching everywhere! The light and variable winds winds were prevailing and the water temps increased to the mid 80's. We were hooking big Tarpon daily. Here is a another nice one during a worm hatch!



Sight casting to Tarpon on the basin flats in May and June is outstanding! Here is another Tarpon caught in this environment...





Resident baby Tarpon have also been on the line...

Permit are here and there if you get that lucky!!!

Spend a week at Turneffe Flats and you won't want to leave!" - Capt. Dexter Simmons.

Tarpon, Bonefish and Permit are all available at the exotic tropical paradise of Turneffe Flats. The fishing for tailing Bonefish is incredible.

A faint orange glow reflects onto the shallow tidal flats. Ocean breezes on the distant rocky reef edges are pushing ripple waves onto the shoreline. A closer look reveals fish tails glistening in the dawns early light. Bonefish school in ankle deep water. As they feed, their fins rise above the waterline. They are grey ghosts swimming into the tide foraging the shoal bottom for their breakfast of crab and shrimp.

Just steps away on cabana decks anxious anglers ready their rods, flies and wading boots for the morning hunt. It is first light on Turneffe Flats.

Nearby skiff guides are positioning their anglers for casts to channel Tarpon. The tide is flooding into the atoll, and the Tarpon are spotted on the surface rolling against the current. A well placed purple and black deceiver should entice a strike.

Later rising anglers are gathering in the Turneffe Flats dining room for a sumptuous breakfast. One spots a black sickle tail rising on the tidal flat a few yards from the infinity pool. "Look, a tailing Permit"! Last minute supplies for the fishing day are sought in the fly shop amid talk of success with a particular pattern. The next wave of hungry anglers arrive telling tales of first light angling.

Soon all are striding to the skiff docks under swaying palms with rods and gear bags in hand. Guides await with their super skiffs readied for the day. Lunches and drinks are loaded into coolers, fishing equipment is stowed. The choices are discussed and anglers decide to pursue Tarpon, Bonefish or Permit to start their day. All know that catching each of the big three that day is the most elusive yet ultimate flats fishing feat: THE GRAND SLAM.

102 days and counting till our July 25 flight to Belize. The fishing are waiting...



And so was Mario!

Mario was very happy...

And David's Crab Fly...

We hope that you will join us for another epic trip to Turneffe Flats, Belize!

"Bones of Steel"

Capt. Dexter Simmons with a Big Bonefish


A true story of Key West flats fishing by Capt. Dexter Simmons as published in Fly Fish America magazine:


"...The first burst of power from the bonefish took Jim by surprise and nearly coiled the extra fly line around his neck. He quickly recovered however, and scrambled to clear the extra fly line to the reel. What seemed like an eternity took only seconds, as the fish ran at least two hundred yards across the flat, maybe two-fifty, before slowing down..."







"Permit in Paradise"

Capt. Dexter Simmons with a Big Permit


Another true story of Key West flats fishing by Capt. Dexter Simmons as published in Fly Fish America magazine:


"...As we approach the Southeast flats of Marquesa, I am reminded of last night's strategy session at Turtle Kraals. I'll call out the clock position and distance in feet to the fish. When the Permit is within your range, cast the fly so it lands a foot or two in front of him or upcurrent of him. Reacting quickly with your cast is essential, as it takes only a few seconds to spook the fish or to lose your shot. So, try to limit yourself to one false cast at the most..."
