El Pescador Fishing Guides
All El Pescador fishing guides were born and raised on the island. The lodge prides itself on having some of the most experienced guides in Belize. Many of our fishing guides have been with us for over 20 years, and now our second generation of El Pescador guides is in full swing! Most of them have been trained by their fathers and uncles with whom they typically spend several years learning the craft before captaining their own flats boat.
Our guides' encyclopedic knowledge of this fishery comes from a lifetime dedicated to learning where the fish are and how they behave. El Pescador guides are excellent technical fishermen and will be happy to provide instruction during your fishing day.
At El Pescador we have created a teaching environment. When you arrive we sit down with you, make sure you have the gear you need, describe the current fishing conditions, and generally get a feel for what you hope to achieve while fishing with us.
Each day your guide will assist with casting and fishing instruction, and when you return to the lodge you may choose to join our evening casting workshops, where we work on the tools needed to succeed in fishing the flats.
