SEASON OF OPERATION
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE LOGISTICS
The week begins on either a Saturday or Sunday and ends the following Saturday or Sunday.
The Grand Slam House is located on the beach adjacent to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. With a gorgeous view of the Caribbean Sea and Barrier Reef, the house is split in to two levels and can be configured in a 4, 6 or 8 bedroom set up for groups. What this means is that each angler in the group will have his/her own private air conditioned bedroom for the week.
This house is a spectacular two-story beachfront villa with sliding glass doors and picture windows in each room. There are ceiling fans throughout and the ceilings are made of beautiful hardwoods of Belize (Mahogany, Rosewood, Zericote and Santa Maria). The floors are tiled in each room with Spanish natural color tiles. This spacious accommodation includes a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room, four baths, cable TV, telephone, DVD player, CD player, air conditioning, patio with lounge chairs, outdoor dining under a palapa, BBQ pit, pier where you may swim, snorkel, sunbathe or relax in the hammocks under the palapa, and a gorgeous pool with two sundecks and an infinity edge. The living area and dining table are made of marble.
Located roughly 4 miles south of San Pedro Town in a beautiful and private area, there is easy access to and from town either by golf cart, taxi or bicycle. Wireless internet is available with your own laptop.
The week comes with a private chef who will prepare all meals including, breakfast, lunch and dinner each day, plus after fishing snacks. Our chef is excellent and her food is superb. Once the trip is booked, we will send out a pre trip menu for your approval and input.

The San Pedro fishing area is made up of large mangrove islands and bays, semi soft marl, healthy turtle grass flats and hard packed sand flats which are excellent for wading. The reef side, north of San Pedro, heading all the way up to the Mexican border, is also a great bonefish habitat. If the weather is calm, a day up at Rocky Point, where the reef angles into the island, is extremely productive and makes a fabulous day trip. Because many of the flats consist of a marl based bottom, the majority of the bonefishing is done from the skiff. There are some hard packed areas that are excellent for wading that are very productive so guests just have to let their guide know that this is something you’d like to do.
The tarpon fishing to the west of San Pedro is consistently some of the best found anywhere. The Savannah Flats are world famous for their ability to produce tarpon year round. Juvenile fish in the 25 to 60 pound range can frequently be found throughout the year, with much larger tarpon showing up in the late spring and summer. The spring also means permit when fishing San Pedro. Not many people know it but excellent numbers of permit show up around Ambergris Caye from late April until the fall. Virtually all of our 25 pound + permit have been caught during this time frame. Permit will usually be found in about 6 to 12 feet of water so all shots will be from the bow of the boat as opposed to wading. The coastline has a vast array of creeks, lagoons and brackish estuaries that hold every imaginable species of fish that live in these environments. Inside the reef, the cayes, sandbars and tidal flats are a dynamic fish producing habitats. If you’re serious about chasing a “Slam”, there are few places better.
