Week In Review

It was an unofficial Father/Son week at El Pescador Lodge! By coincidence, most of our groups were father and son groups of all ages. We had a lot of first timers with a fly rod this week and a lot of non-fly fishing adventures, also. Reef fishing, shore lunches, Mayan ruin tours, town excursions, Secret beach trips, spa and massage time, and plenty of pool and sun time were enjoyed by our guests. Several trip slams got done this week but couldn't quite get it done in one day. Some especially nice snook were hooked and a few were boated. Lots of other fish were caught, including a lot of Jack Crevalles, pufferfish, and snapper. Some of our guests brought up Queen Snappers from 800 feet down!
We changed up our regular fishing routines this week and it was a fun week for all.
