Week In Review

Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at El Pescador! This past week, as we celebrated with delectable feasts and the company of wonderful friends, our fishing adventures were equally thrilling.

While the number of Permit caught was slightly lower than in some previous weeks, these elusive fish were still a prominent feature around our boats. The Tarpon, particularly the spirited juveniles, provided an exciting challenge in the lagoons and rivers with their acrobatic jumps and the difficulty they present in landing. Additionally, anglers encountered larger resident Tarpon in the flats, adding to the week's excitement.

The highlight of the week, however, was the remarkable Snook fishing. We experienced some of the best Snook catches to date, marking personal bests for several of our clients. As for the Bonefish enthusiasts, they enjoyed a fantastic week as well. The Bonefish were particularly cooperative, especially in the sun-kissed sand flats, eagerly biting and providing great sport.

As we reflect on a week filled with joy, friendship, and exceptional fishing, we look forward to more such wonderful experiences here at El Pescador.
