1 WEEK, 1 CLIENT, 12 PERMIT, AND A 20 POUNDER! Punta Gorda, Belize (Central America)
We received a great client report from a trip to Belize. Jack landed an amazing dozen permit on his trip and one of which was 20-pounder! What a week, what a fish!
Jim – I just thought I'd share a photo with you; it’s about 20 lbs according to Scully's length and girth formula. I had a great trip and enjoyed fishing with him, the fishing gods smiled upon us; we brought 12 to the boat. Scully told me to tell you that we "only landed 12 permit" and that fishing was "okay"... ha!
Thanks again for putting this together and for letting me use your rods. Looking forward to more trip, hopefully sooner rather than later. I'll let you know. - Jack Sauther
For over fifteen years, the Garbutt Brothers (Scully, Oliver, Dennis and Eworth) have been guiding the waters from Punta Gorda, east to the Sapodilla Cayes, and just north to Placencia. After years spent working for other lodges throughout the region, they finally built a fishing lodge of their own in 2008.
It’s a centrally-located fishing-focused operation with the best permit fishing in all of Southern Belize. Located on a small point of land on Joe Taylor Creek, the Lodge sits directly in the town of Punta Gorda. You can walk or ride a bike to several bars or restaurants, or you can wander the small fishing village, meeting locals, seeing the sights, and taking in the culture of Southern Belize.
