7 nights/6 days guided fishing

Copal Tree Lodge is our favorite place to stay in Belize. The lodge is committed to conservation, local economic development, and actively engages in practices to minimize their carbon footprint.  From the moment you arrive, the extra effort the staff puts in is why this lodge is worth it. From the handwritten welcome notes, to the luxurious accommodations, and pristine natural surroundings Copal Tree Lodge makes you feel like a treasured guest.

Copal Tree is the perfect place to try for that elusive grand slam. Start your day searching for tarpon and snook along the mangroves, move out before the tide changes to find that permit, and finish the day surrounded by white sand beaches chasing bones.

After fishing, enjoy a cocktail made from ingredients grown in the cocktail garden with rum from the lodge's own distillery located on the premises. For dinner, treat yourself to an unforgettable farm-to-table meal. About 70% of the ingredients the lodge uses are sourced from the lodge grounds. After dinner, retire to your canopy suite, and fall asleep bathed in the sounds of the jungle.

The new Sage Igniter was made for technical conditions like these. The ultra-fast action allows you to pick up and hammer out a cast without having to false cast in the wind.  The rod comes in 6-10 weights and is worth its weight in tarpon silver.

Powerful, smooth, and reliable, this large arbor reel was made for fighting large fish in the saltwater. The multi-disk drag has enough breaking power to stop big tarpon but can be dialed back for the light tippet needed for bones. The drag system is completely sealed protecting it from the harsh elements that saltwater brings. What really makes this reel worth it is the custom finish.

This line is worth it for so many reasons. First, the multi-colored line takes the guess work out of how much line you have in the air or at your feet, so you won't come up short when that permit shows. Second, the front taper loads the rod quickly and easily to deliver a quick shot to tailing bonefish. Finally, the DirectCore core reduces stretch when setting the hook on that monster tarpon.
