Week In Review

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.

The highlight of the week was a double grand slam for Tom G fishing with Capt. Junior. They also took 6 Tarpon! Gordy and his anglers were the rock stars with their Tarpon haul, and Brad M and Jason N also each had a Grand slam with Gordy... Phenomenal!

Special mention must be made of our very professional guides who have worked so hard for our guests. They are a pivotal part of our great team at El Pescador !

Congratulations to all !!
