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.

El Pescador hosted few anglers last week so the fishing was light. From February onward, many more flies will be presented to fish on the flats. Unseasonal rain and cloud cover made fishing tough.

Last week, El Pescador hosted two large "family and friends" groups. Our big group was a wonderful family of 18 from Wisconsin ( Great Green Bay Fans !) In this party, Luke took an excellent 30 Lb Permit! In our "Boston" group, Chris & Tyler took good Permit and Bonefish, respectively.

This has been a great week for Permit, with almost all anglers hooking up. Several with multiple Permit during the stay. A Permit was even caught from the dock. Tarpon fishing has been a little tricky with lots of sightings, but not many landed for the week. Bonefish have been plentiful, and several really large fish caught.

Anglers continued to have plenty of shots this week with a lot of good eats and tarpon coming unbuttoned on the first or second jump. El Pescador advises anglers to practice strip setting and putting away the trout set before venturing out. In all, it was a great week for permit and the tarpon seem to be more willing to be fed flies!
