Placencia, Belize Update
Fished Placencia with Kevin Modera 12/8/01 - 12/11/01. The fishing was excellent.
Bonefish were plentiful and easily caught. Most small but a few 3-4 pounders.
After trying on severa previous trips, I finally caught Permit on this one. Caught one off the Placencia coast and one down south in the Punta Ycacos Lagoon. Three others were hooked but not landed.
Also landed three tarpon and lost as many. No giants but good jumpers and very entertaining.
Jacks, Mackeral and other assorted 'food fish' per usual.
Why success this trip? Practice? Luck? Karma? Actually, Kevin has developed two fairly simple but perfect flies for the area.
The town looks a bit barren after Iris but the beer is still cold and the people warm.
How good was the trip? I'll be back in 79 days.
