As many of you know, my wife Eileen and I host fishing trips to somewhere warm in the spring. Last year we returned to Belize after visiting destinations on the Sea of Cortez. Placencia was where we took the group, and it was such a hit that everyone wanted to go back. They loved Roberts Grove Resort and the guides. Fishing on the reef was terrific. We all caught a lot of jacks, barracuda snapper, African pompano other species. We got to see some amazing things while we out on the water, too, like a pod of manatee feeding in the channel we crossed going and coming from various fishing grounds. Some of our group took the trip up the Monkey River and got to see crocodiles, howler monkeys and an amazing variety of birds. I spent two mornings on the Monkey River casting a fly to tarpon and got one each day. I also caught bonefish off a small island before heading out to the reef to finish the day. the small village of Placencia was a fun place to go for lunch, dinner or shopping. So, we have scheduled a return trip to Placencia, leaving on May 15th and returning on May 23rd of 2020. If you would like to join us on our next adventure, please give Sandy Mathews at Journey Travel a call at 509-662-7775. She will give you all the details on costs. You can always e-mail me with questions, too.
