Week In Review

This past week at El Pescador offered fantastic weather for our anglers, with plenty of sunshine to light up the flats, although accompanied by a cool, refreshing breeze. Our guests experienced an exhilarating week with a remarkable number of Bonefish reeled in, adding to the thrill of the catch. A few lucky anglers also managed to snag some elusive Permit, a prize for any fly fisher. Additionally, over a dozen Tarpon were brought to hand, making for some spectacular moments on the water. But the excitement didn't end there! Other species making an appearance included the crafty Snook, some vibrant Snappers, and the fierce Barracuda, creating a diverse and fulfilling fishing experience for all.
