Here at Garbutt’s we do offer exceptional opportunities for those interested in conventional fishing techniques
The opportunities for conventional angling are diverse with a wide range of species that can pursued within our waters. However, we do want to be clear that we don’t utilize the permit flats found within the Port of Honduras Marine Reserve for conventional angling.
We focus on the reef, Sapodilla Cayes, channels, and the rivers found within our fishery. This offers conventional anglers great opportunities for permit, tarpon, snook, snapper, barracuda, etc. With conventional tackle anglers can pursue the variety of species with top water plugs and poppers, jig the reef, as well as troll with subsurface lures. In general, when fishing using conventional tackle you can have success with a variety of species.
The package rates are exactly the same for conventional anglers as for fly anglers. However, flats fishing within the Port of Honduras Marine Reserve is not permitted.
