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. In Late summer we have the added bonus of a large migratory population of big fish.
My trip to El Pescador gave me the perfect opportunity to "double dip"! I no longer need to choose between a great fishing vacation for myself or a wonderful family vacation. Although I chose El Pescador because it is known first and foremost as a world-class fishing destination, they go out of their way to cater to the non-angling guest. They offer free use of kayaks and bicycles for exploring the Caye and offer trips to snorkel and dive, explore Maya ruins, zip lining, etc. We'll be back!
