Nov. 1st – Nov. 14th, 2015 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING
Hardly a fishing day goes by without every guest catching a bonefish, usually if it happens it is because the angler decides to fish for tarpon or permit all day. This was true these 2 weeks despite some poor weather late in the last week. There were several large bonefish caught in the 4-pound range and a single report of a fish over 6 pounds.
Orvis’ Bonefish School and Orvis’ Bonefish Bonanza dominated the activity. The school’s student took the first morning for some classroom work with knots, techniques, strip strike practice to get a little ahead of the game before they fished that afternoon. Sara & Sean, Rich and Lee, Victor and Mary, Tracy and David, gary and Debbie, Jerry and Gloria, David and Linda, Ron and Sissy, William, Steve, Robert, Julian, Cameron, Lance, Robert, Leo and Sue, Peter and Jackie, Jim and Lindsay, John and Emily, Vance and Ian, Robert and Marie, Justin and Sara, Howard and Janet, Rick, Bill, Jeff, Chris, Scott, Navid, Mickey And Becky, Randy and Brenda Daniel, Rob, Frank, Mike, Jim and Gail, Meredith and Charles, Brian and Leanna, Ron, Fred all enjoyed some great bonefishing here in Northern Belize.
Return guest Jean landed 2 permit mid way through his trip… I believe these were his first Belizean permit. Brian, Troy and David each landed a permit during their stay at El Pescador. Oops, I almost forgot Cameron and Lance for their permit! Lots more shots, follows and a few hookups were also reported. Overall a significanrt number of permit were fooled by the fly this week.
Tarpon (Sabalo):Bill started it off with a nice tarpon, Julian and Kyle were tarpon masters, Cameron, Lance, Jeff, and Justin got their tickets to tarpon stardom as well. Congratulations to all.
Jacks, Barracudas, Snappers, Snook, Ladyfish, triggerfish.. many more if you count the reef trips some guests enjoyed.
