Despite some slightly unsavoury weather conditions, the anglers fishing at El Pescador have still managed to enjoy a good week with some nice fish and some mixed fishing.
Strong fronts regularly moving across Ambergris Caye with sustained easterly winds gusting to 25 mph have suppressed fishing numbers. Bonefish landed in good numbers, and large Snook were seen and caught in the lagoons. Juvenile Tarpon up to 20/9 lbs/kg have been active in and around mangroves. A highlight of the week, David’s 35″ Snook while being guided by Capt Gordy.
