Week In Review

Despite the persistent rain and cloud cover this week at El Pescador, our anglers remained undeterred, embracing the challenge with remarkable enthusiasm. The weather certainly didn't dampen the spirits or the catch rates!

With the elusive Permit proving trickier to locate due to the lack of sunshine, our focus shifted predominantly towards Snook. The mainland creek mouths emerged as hotspots, yielding impressive results. Additionally, these areas were teeming with juvenile Tarpon, creating a dynamic fishing experience that kept our anglers on their toes.

A special shoutout goes to our good friend, Steve Berry. In the midst of these cloudy conditions, Steve achieved an extraordinary feat - a Grand Slam! And as if to dispel any doubts about his angling prowess, he repeated this remarkable achievement shortly after. Double congratulations to Steve for this outstanding performance!

Overall, this week has been a testament to the fact that rain or shine, the fish are always biting at El Pescador, and every day brings a new adventure.
