Belize Fishing Reports - Ambergris Caye

October 25, 2020

This week was excellent again, with large numbers of Permit being seen. Tarpon were the story of the week, with Capt. Gordy shooting the lights out with 14 Tarpon landed by his guests. We honestly lost count of the numbers of fish that were jumped. The fishing has been incredible. Four grad slams recorded as well.

The highlight of the week was a double grand slam for Hunter R fishing with Cesar. His wife Kelsey, narrowly missed her slam with the Permit breaking the leader at the boat! Not to be outdone, she then went on to boat three good Tarpon that day! Josh fishing with Gordy also had a grand slam and took other Tarpon as well.

This week was truly incredible with huge numbers of Permit being seen. They were very difficult to hook, and made the anglers work very hard ! Bonefish were around in big numbers and so many were caught daily that we do not have an accurate tally. One boat accounted for over 20 fish in a day ! The big story of the week was definitely the Tarpon. Fish were spotted everywhere, and our guests enjoyed a true bonanza. JC and Jeo hooked 10 Tarpon in one day and boated 4. The biggest fish was a good 60 lbs.

We are truly delighted that yesterday was our grand re-opening! Our first angler, Ken Z went out and caught a beauty of a permit. He used a light brown Mantis Shrimp pattern. The fish were everywhere, and large numbers of Tarpon were seen rolling. They were reluctant to take flies as yesterday we had had a significant weather system pass by Belize, and with the sudden drop in Barometric pressure, the fish lost interest. Thankfully it is rising again, and we anticipate a bumper week ahead! We are so looking forward to seeing our extended El Pescador family back here in Belize ~ so do come see us soon!

The flats are super quiet. No boats. No engines. One canhear the sound of a Tarpon rolling at 100 paces! The fish have been resting for around amonth, and by the time this is all over, probably two months. Thousands of hungry fish that have forgotten what a fly looks like!! We are convinced that the first returning visitors to El Pescador are going to enjoy the most incredible fishing. Make sure you are on the list. Don’t miss out on this virtually virgin fishing experience. Sincerely, Your El Pescador Family.‍

Last week was a really good week here at El Pescador and we enjoyed all the smiling faces of our happy anglers. Weather conditions were very pleasant and the Tarpon announced their early arrival.

Last week was tougher than normal here at El Pescador as the weather and wind were not friendly. The guides are doing a great job keeping guests into fish in the protective coves mainly on the west side of the island. Bonefishing has been the stock and trade and guests are reporting good numbers. Several guests coming back each day with double digit numbers of bones and several trophy fish. Permit fishing has been tough with the wind. Tarpon are being caught tight to the mangroves along with snook. Good weather on the horizon and we are all excited to put these last few cold fronts behind us.

Last week was a tale of two halves. In the first part of the week, we had perfect weather, and our anglers caught good numbers of fish. It then degenerated as the frontal system arrived. Barometric pressure fell, and fishing became quite tough. Anglers who worked hard were still rewarded with several good bonefish.

The fishing this week was greatly improved by a lovely weather week with lighter winds and far less cloud cover. Good numbers of Bonefish were landed, and the flats enjoyed clear water, which made sight casting a lot easier.

Last week, fishing was mixed with an average bag of bonefish, a variety of Snapper species, and one Tarpon and three Permit landed. A fair amount of wind made conditions challenging.

Last week fishing was mixed with an average bag of bonefish, a variety of Snapper species, and one large permit of 30 Lbs. Wind and cloud cover made conditions a bit tough at times.
