By Aaron Humes: Among its many accolades, Ambergris Caye has been named among the 17 greatest fisheries in North America by FishingBooker, the world’s largest platform for connecting anglers and fishing guides, with over 29,000 fishing trips available in more than 1,850 cities worldwide.
The spots in the list were picked based on the size and variety of popular fish and the skill and history of local fishing communities, with bonus points for sustainability.
Ambergris is home to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve and sits not too far from the Belize Barrier Reef system, widely recognized and protected.
So why is Ambergris Caye one of the best fisheries in North America?
The writers say Ambergris Caye is a pilgrimage site for bonefish fishers. The island is surrounded by sandy flats and turtle grass beds that are home to some real monsters. It’s not just Bones, either. Big numbers of Permit and Tarpon make this a true fly-fishing paradise. It’s the perfect place for a Grand Slam.
“This has been a challenging year. Travel has been close to impossible, anglers have been stuck at home, and the places they love to visit have struggled as a result. However, North America is home to some truly outstanding fishing spots that are worth celebrating. With all this in mind, we wanted to highlight how special they are for anglers across the continent and beyond,” says Joris Zantvoort, Director of Communications at FishingBooker.
The full list ranges from sites in Costa Rica, Cayman Islands and Mexico to Ontario, Canada and U.S. states from New York to Florida to Alaska.
