We have taken this opportunity to give you an overview of the fishing experience you should expect during November thru February.
TARPON: they start migration south around the first week in November. They naturally migrate thru the Victoria Channel and Tarpon Caye is located in the center of this channel. This is a major stopping point when migrating north and south. They feed on the minnows that live in the lagoon, which feeds on the marine algae that line the bottom; therefore they are here almost all year round. In January and February are months when we experience cold fronts that affect the temperature of the water and the fish continues migrating south. We do still have resident tarpon around for these months.
PERMIT: November is one of the months we experience much higher tides; therefore first quarter and last quarter moons are still the most favorable period; but your fishing tactic changes from fishing on a half full to full tide, to a low to half full tide to compensate for the extra high tide.
December to February – You want to fish the new moon or full moon; to compensate for the extra low tides; and you will want to fish the Spring tides so you could get the highest tides.
OTHER: We have bonefish all year round and the Conventional Fishermen have abundant opportunities to go after cudas, jacks, snappers, mackerels, black fin tuna, yellow jacks, wahoo etc. Learn more about Tarpon Caye Lodge
