Fishing from Caye CaulkerI'm a very amateur fisherman but would like to try fishing while I'm at Caye Caulker in a couple months. I've looked online and cant seem to find any of the companys that offer this. Would I have to get a charter with a certain number of people? I'm traveling alone so that would be out of the question.
Or would it be best if I just waited until I arrived and walked around looking for someone with a boat? I'm not looking for anything fancy just curious if anyone had any more information on this.

1I've been to Caye Caulker a couple times, and I've seen signs up at a few places offering fishing trips, so they are available, don't remember the cost though. I also know that people take their rods with them and fish from the split. The split is a narrow channel that opened up after a huricane a number of years back, maybe 20 meters across, that is also used for snorkelling and swimming.

2Just back two weeks ago. I would wait until arrival so you can negotiate price. There's a place on a side street between middle & back (i think called "get hooked up") that had trips. There are othe options as well, ask any of the restaurant touts and they'll point you to someone. I inquired and the lowest I could get the to was $150 US per day, including everything, but prices started at about double that. Like the other poster mentioned, you can fish the split and have cocktails from the Lazy Lizard at the same time. One thing that might appeal is the 3- day sailing trip to Placencia. It mentioned fishing also. It's in the LP guide, the company is Ragg-something. Caye Caulker is so small, you can inquire for everything in a couple hours so don't worry about advance scheduling.

I guess this is what itsgotime was talking about: http://raggamuffintours.com/overnight-sailing-2/
I went on a snorkelling trip with Raggamuffin and I strongly recommend it! Great fun and great service.

4We just got back from Caye Caulker. I seem to recall that French Angel has fishing trips, but I don't recall how much they were. We did one of their snorkeling trips, and it was great.
Bags feeling light?
Coffee table looking bare?
