At El Pescador you can achieve the anglers' ultimate dream - a Grand Slam of bonefish, tarpon and permit. Belize's shallow water contains the only classic tarpon flats outside South Florida. Our flats are world renowned for offering the opportunity to sight cast to tarpon 12 months a year.
The bonefish grounds are only minutes from the lodge. Fish from the boat or wade-able flats available all around us. The bonefish run from 2 - 5 lbs, are plentiful, and eager to take a fly.
Permit are found on the bonefish flats, and on many of the tarpon flats as well. Our permit are found in large schools and range from 4 - 30 lbs, with the majority running about 8 - 10 lbs.
The El Pescador fishery has year round resident tarpon over 100 lbs. The fish are spread out over our 250 square mile fishery. In Late summer we have the added bonus of a large migratory population of big fish.
I am not usually in the habit of contacting holiday destinations upon my return to the UK, but I thought I would make an exception here to thank you and your staff for making my week so enjoyable. The organization of every aspect of the holiday was excellent, and the atmosphere at the lodge relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. I came to El Pescador to fish for saltwater species for the first time, and found the fishing absorbing and as exciting as anything I can remember...
