The Belizean Barrier Reef sports a wide variety of prize catches.

School of JacksTarpon, grouper, cobia, barracuda, bonefish, rainbow runners, and triggerfish frequent the waters of the barrier reef and its outer atolls. The deeper waters beyond the reef sport sailfish, marlin, wahoo, mackerel, bonito, pompano, blue fin, black fin, and albacore tuna. Experienced guides offer bait fishing in the deeper waters or trolling in the shallower reef protected seas.

The offshore atolls offer superb fishing due to their remote location and unique geological features. Waters plummet thousands of feet only 200-300 feet from the reef crest on all sides of the atolls making these areas oases in a desert of deep blue ocean. Fishermen can access Turneffe Islands Atoll, Lighthouse Atoll, and Glover´s Reef Atoll via charters or fishing packages from various fishing resorts and lodges on the mainland or on the offshore cayes.
