June 7th – June 13th, 2015 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING
Bonefishing always seems to be good here at El Pescador. Brian, Truel, Jimmy , Ray, Dan, Jim. Jeff, Ken, Lew, Jerry, Steve Pat, proved this to be true. These were but a few of the successful bonefishers who visited the lodge this week. Coleen was most improved of the week and tried out her newly learned skills on the bonefish. (Successfully I might add!)
Glenn (landed 2) and Truel (landed 1) were the permit masters this week, Steve hooked one but alas it wasn’t to be.
Michael showed us early n that he has a way with both bonefish and tarpon as he landed the first tarpon of the week. David and John landed 4 poons in a single day! Marcus and Paul’s boat had a couple big migratory tarpon on, but they were not able to get them close to the boat for a leader touch.
Kea was the first in the week to crack the tarpon’s secret code and landed a nice tarpon, Jack got a beauty on his first day of fishing. Kelli got in on the action with another tarpon added to the list, William hooked the biggest of the week but lost her after 30 minutes. Boddy, Jay. Dan, Jeff hooked a few poons that also escaped at the last second. Kea and Jack ended up with 3 tarpon between them, all in the migratory classes of 70-100 pounds.
Snapper, Jacks, Barracudas, Shad, ladyfish, some snook for Lew and Pat
4 slams this week! Kudos go to all! Howard, Max had a grand slam… Seth and John got the job done as well! Hip, Hip Hooray! Bruce hooked up all three one day but didn’t land them all!
Flies that worked:
Bonefish:Christmas Island Special, spawning gotcha, simram.
Permit: CI Special
Tarpon: Black Death, Olive toad, black bunny, Whistler
Another great Orvis group trip led by Joe from Orvis Travel with everyone getting some good fishing time in despite some windy and overcast conditions. Tarpon fishing was pretty darn good for those who didn’t mind doing some blind casting.

- Overcast and windy was the reality most of the week with a few well-deserved breaks here and there.
- Air Temp:
- Highs are in the mid to upper 80’s, lows in the mid 70’s. Winds: Winds were gusty and too high most of the week in the 15-20mpjhh range mostly out of the east but a few days out of the north. We tend not to like those north winds as it draws all the water out of the bay and flats between the reef and the island and gives us less leeward shores to fish.
- Temp: 80-81 F. degrees
- The last quarter moon was on June 9nth. Sunrise: 5:17 am Sunset: 6:24 pm
