El Pescador Fishing Report 19th April 2023

The wind was down but picked up a little. The fish became harder to find, but the bite was better. Generally, clear skies meant good visibility and a lot of shots at permit again. Some Guests hooked up with some migratory tarpon but didn’t boat any this week. The Bonefish were consistent this week, with some boats well into double digits caught in a day. One super slam for Capt. Cesar and guest Danny!
