Week In Review

This week was truly incredible with huge numbers of Permit being seen. They were very difficult to hook, and made the anglers work very hard !
Bonefish were around in big numbers and so many were caught daily that  we do not have an accurate tally. One boat accounted for over 20 fish in a day !

The big story of the week was definitely the Tarpon. Fish were spotted everywhere, and our guests enjoyed a true bonanza. JC and Jeo hooked 10 Tarpon in one day and boated 4. The biggest fish was a good 60 lbs.

Mike and Bill boated 3 in one day and went on to catch a few more.

The story of the week was Bryan fishing with Cesar. We honestly don't know how many Tarpon they hooked, but they boated 14. The biggest fish was a beautiful specimen of 100 Lbs. ! A total of 26 Tarpon were boated.

This was a very special week, and mention must be made of our top quality guides for putting guests on the fish. To quote a 16 time returning guest, Ken Z " The El Pescador guides are probably the best flats guides in the world"

We agree with him . Well done to our amazing team!
