I’m back from Belize now… it was 55 in the house when I got home. I miss Belize already, but I look forward to seeing my wife and daughter again (which I’ll do on Friday). I’m going to pick up reporting on the days of the trip, starting with Day 2.
Day 2 started out in Miami and from there on to Belize City and from there to Ambergris and El Pescador.
As we descended into Belize City my heart kind of sank a bit. There was a lot of rain on the ground and buckets still falling. The puddle jumper from Belize City to Ambergris was a cool flight, but still the rain was coming down. Lori-Ann met Shane and I at the dock for the ride to El Pescador.
After we got our room, we got ready to hit the beach in the rain in search of tails. We found them (the first fish spotted was actually right when we got to El Pescador… right by the dock… crazy). The turtle grass was so thick it was tough to get flies to the fish and we ended our first actual day there without a fish to our name, but at least we had gotten out there and paid some rain soaked dues.
We were scheduled to go out with guide Katchu the next day, but decided to push that off for a day to let the weather settle. We’d day the canoe out in the lagoon system behind El Pescador for the second day there.
Dinner was great and we met the other anglers and divers staying at the lodge. Everyone got on well and we were looking forward to the next day, despite a less that totally awesome weather forecast.
Stay Tuned for Day 3.

We love the lagoon. Can’t wait to hear about your adventure there!
Good stuff! I was in San Pedro last month and stayed about 5 minutes down the beach from El Pescador at Bella Vista (Ahi restaurant). Had a blast catching bones right off the docks and beach the whole trip! Looking forward to reading about the rest of your trip.
