GRG X TARPON CAYE  - Permit Paradise Photo Gallery

The annual Gallatin River Guides Belize trip changed locations to Tarpon Caye Lodge in 2018, and the Permit gods were pleased. 10 Permit in six days.

After a busy summer and the return shoveling season here in Big Sky, the crew headed south to Tarpon Caye Lodge in Belize.  Below is a sampling of our experience, minus any photos of the amazing food, guides, and staff on the island.  Besides not having space for many photos, sometimes you get too busy catching Permit.

John went fishless for 21 days before landing his first permit.  He caught three in 6 days.
