Fishing my way…

One of our guests who stayed here last June during San Pedro Lobsterfest decided to share the following vacation story about their 1/2 day fishing trip.

Fishing my way…

I really love to go fishing, not for the reasons most people do but fishing soothes my soul.

When we are in Belize we are always sure to fit at least a half day fishing trip. We are Met at Grand Caribe dock bright and early. Once we have finished our bait hunt and have enough sardines, we head out into the vast blue waters.

We find a place to troll very slowly and start casting lines.  We usually catch grouper and have caught some BIG barracuda. AHHH this is the life…I find my towel and park myself in the front of the boat where I relax and catch some sun.

Best Part B is now my hubby and our guides are doing some fishing. This means my dinner is going to be very fresh!  After a couple hours and a lot of fish, it’s time to head back to the resort and let the guides clean and filet our fish. We go grab a drink at the pool bar and head back  to the dock to watch..

Best Part C is while my dinner is getting prepped, I can enjoy a cold beverage with my husband.  When the fish are all cleaned and filleted, we take them up to our condo, we like a full kitchen option our vacation.  All the while I am thinking how we should cook our fish. My options are a coconut curry, grilled in foil with veggies or pan fried, I decide on coconut curry. My husband and I enjoy another drink and cooking a fresh Belize fish dinner together.

Being out in a boat, on the water, someone else catching dinner, enjoying sun, time with my hubby and staying a great place to end the day, This is why fishing soothes my soul.
