Week In Review

Last week was a really good week here at El Pescador and we enjoyed all the smiling faces of our happy anglers. Weather conditions were very pleasant and the Tarpon announced their early arrival.

What Guests were Catching

Bonefish

Bonefish are being caught in very good numbers. Most areas of the flats have yielded fish. Some large bones reported this week with several over the 5 lb mark.

Permit

Permit fishing has improved dramatically with 9 fish taken ranging between 10 – 20 Lbs.

Tarpon

Tarpon fishing has suddenly been on the boil with continuous sightings of rolling fish and good numbers caught. 8 fish were landed with a father and son double on one day. Brandon Coleman Jr caught a nice fish of 60 Lbs, and Brandon Snr answered that with a fish of 70 Lbs !  It would seem that the season is getting off to an early start.

Other Species

Several lady fish were taken along with several really nice (15-20 Lb) Jacks .
