Week In Review

This week, anglers experienced markedly improved weather conditions, setting the stage for an amazing time on the water. While achieving a Grand Slam proved challenging, the abundance of Bonefish provided plenty of action and excitement. Anglers also enjoyed a variety of catches, including several species of Snapper and the ever-thrilling Barracuda. The diversity of fish and the increased activity made for an eventful week at El Pescador.


  • Bonefish Bonanza: Anglers reported a significant number of Bonefish catches, reveling in the sheer numbers and the spirited fight these silver bullets offer.
  • Multi-Species Adventure: In addition to Bonefish, the waters around El Pescador were teeming with Snappers and Barracuda, adding variety and surprise to each day's catch.
  • Weather Win: The improved weather conditions provided the perfect backdrop for days filled with fishing, laughter, and the picturesque beauty of Ambergris Caye.

As the week wraps up, the tales of tight lines and the one-that-got-away grow, each angler returning with their own unique story of adventure at El Pescador. Until next week, we wish you clear skies and tight lines!
