Week In Review

We saw a mix of fishing conditions on the flats this week, but we took advantage of the good times and still caught fish when it was more challenging. A group of young women visiting the lodge landed some of the largest Permit we have ever witnessed at El Pescador, with one fish estimated at over forty pounds! A true giant!

We also had good tarpon fishing all around. The bonefish were very cooperative, also. The snook fishing was excellent this week, with some big females coming to the boat. Truly a great week all around!
