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 have had the good fortune to travel all over the world to fish and hunt and have never experienced better hospitality or a place as well run as El Pescador. The staff was helpful, friendly and polite. The room, food and drinks were excellent. El Pescador is an understated, delightful environment. It is unique in that there are so many activities besides fishing. Everything is low key...just there for the asking.
