Saltwater Flats Fishing

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.

Bonefish

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

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. 

Tarpon

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.

Our group of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our recent 3 day stay at El Pescador. The graciousness and friendliness of the staff truly exceeded expectations. None of us had ever much more than seen a fly rod much less cast one, but between the Orvis help in planning and your guides help in executing, we actually caught fish and learned quite a bit about this type of sport fishing as we progressed. It was really fun. When we return with our group next year we'll continue to work on our fly fishing skills, but we'll be sure to try some of the other activities too - such as snorkeling, inner tubing and exploring. I might add that the weather couldn't have been better. Everything was quite splendid.
