Week In Review

We kicked off the week with Carnivale in Belize, and Belize Independence Day is next week on September 21. Everyone on the island is having fun these days, El Pescador guests included.

We didn't have many boats going out this week, although we did catch a lot of bonefish. Some big schools of permit were spotted, and we had one boat double up on the Permit. Some good snook were found in a river system on the mainland while looking for tarpon. Decent numbers of tarpon were around this week, but they weren't as hungry as weeks past.

Christine got it done this week, scoring a Grand Slam on the fly. She is a return El Pescador guest that we always love seeing and we could not be happier for her. Congratulations, Christine!
