El Pescador Fishing Report 17th July 2023

We had some excellent fishing!   Good numbers of Tarpon, some great permit, and even a few snook. The bonefishing was particularly good this week, and we did more wading than usual.

We had a great group celebrating a 40th birthday with 20 people. We also had a handful of our regular, super guests around, so it was a good week at the lodge. Jim got his 3rd Grand Slam – he will end up with his own board in the bar at this rate!


A beautiful week of weather was enjoyed by all.
