Trip Report: Kathi’s First-ever Permit at Turneffe Island Resort

December 16, 2019

Congratulations to Yellow Dog angler Kathi Q who recently caught her first permit on the fly while vising Belize’s Turneffe Island Resort.

Kathi and her husband, Ron, said “Turneffe Island Resort was awesome and catching the permit was truly exciting.” Kathi and her guide spotted the fish, the guide had the boat in the right position, and Kathi connected after a nice cast.

Congratulations to Kathi Q on a great catch. 

An angler’s first permit is often the most memorable. Turneffe Island Resort is ideally suited for experienced anglers but also is a great location for non-angling companions who enjoy relaxing on the beach, snorkeling, SCUBA, and more.

Turneffe Island Resort’s location allows you to be on the flats, fishing within minutes of leaving the dock and be on some of the best flats fishing for bonefish and permit. Opportunities also exist to target tarpon in the various channels and cuts of the atoll.

This immaculate private island located on the southern tip of Turneffe Atoll is simply stunning – as pristine, private and secluded as anything in the entire Caribbean.
