El Pescador Fishing Report 12th July 2023

Join us for exciting fishing adventures in Belize! This week, our anglers had thrilling encounters with migratory tarpon, including a 130+ pounder that put up an 8-hour fight. Despite challenges, we successfully landed the fish before sundown. Tarpon fishing has been excellent overall, while permit were a bit harder to find due to cloud cover.

We’re also thrilled to have renowned angler Hutch Hutchinson from Orvis teaching the Orvis Grand Slam school. Join our friendly and experienced crew to improve your skills and enjoy great fishing. Don’t miss the ongoing Lobster Fest in San Pedro as lobster season returns, adding culinary delights to your experience. Book now and create unforgettable memories on Belize’s beautiful waters!
