Please note that any day of the year in Belize can have rain or wind or can be sunny, calm and great fishing weather. BRL guides prefer to sight cast to fish, however, if it is
rainy and overcast or windy, then the visibility on the flats can be low, and the guides will try a few different options to get you into fish.
~ blindcast to spots they know
~ fish the three different river systems for tarpon and snook
~ find the flats on the leeward side of islands
~ fish deeper channels
~ any other methods to try and fish in inclement weather
Every day is different and the guides choose how and where to fish depending on what you would like to catch and what the weather and tides are doing on the day you are in Belize.
