Week In Review

Sunny days and light winds made for good sight casting.  El Pescador was honored to host the 2018 Redbone Belize Superslam Tournament raising money for Cystic Fibrosis research, lots of wonderful friends, great fishing, and lots of funds raised for this terrific cause!   All of us here look forward to helping again with this worthwhile cause when they return in 2019.

What Guests were Catching

Bonefish

Many bonefish were landed both from the boats and by wading the flats. Several large ones over 21" were caught.

Permit

Permit were pickier this week, but good numbers on the flats provided more opportunities to have one eat a fly.

Tarpon

The best action was around the Mangroves. Multiple snook were caught in the same areas while casting for tarpon.

Other Species

Snook, snapper, jacks, barracuda, and ladyfish.

Grand Slams

Phoenix R., Bo S. and Brendan M. all achieved this terrific success! A big Grand Slam week here at the lodge!
