Last week was tougher than normal here at El Pescador as the weather and wind were not friendly. The guides are doing a great job keeping guests into fish in the protective coves mainly on the west side of the island. Bonefishing has been the stock and trade and guests are reporting good numbers. Several guests coming back each day with double digit numbers of bones and several trophy fish. Permit fishing has been tough with the wind. Tarpon are being caught tight to the mangroves along with snook. Good weather on the horizon and we are all excited to put these last few cold fronts behind us.
Bonefish are still being caught in good numbers mostly in the protective coves on the west side of the island. Some large bones reported this week with several over the 5 lb mark.
Permit fishing has been tough this past week with the wind and cold fronts.
Three Tarpon landed this week. Two were the smaller baby tarpon that frequent the mangroves and one larger tarpon in the 30lb class.
Several large snook caught this week along with lady fish.
