Fishing Information

Robert's Grove PermitPlacencia is perhaps best known for the large numbers of permit that inhabit the southern area’s huge chain of cayes and flats, most of which are a +/- 45-minute run from town. Surrounded on all sides by deep, blue water, the healthy sand and turtlegrass flats are home to some of the largest permit found anywhere. A number of the mangrove islands and mainland lagoons hold good numbers of snook, as well as tarpon ranging in size from 10 to over 50 pounds.

Schools of bonefish can also be found throughout some of the cayes for those anglers interested in pursuing the elusive grand slam. This area of Southern Belize is blessed with a wide range of fishing contexts including extensive saltwater flats, mangrove islands, the largest Barrier Reef in the Western Hemisphere, and a plenitude of backcountry rivers, lagoons, and lakes. There are few places in the Caribbean that offers a greater variety of fishing locations than Southern Belize.

These 23' skiffs are outfitted with cushion seats, a casting platform, polling platforms, dry storage for cameras and clothing, VHF radios, and 4-stroke outboard engines. The Inn also has rental fly fishing equipment and small items such as flies, leaders, and tippet for sale.That said, it is recommended that anglers bring their own rods, reels, flies and terminal tackle.
