El Pescador Fishing Report 22nd November 2023

This week at El Pescador was filled with excitement and sunny skies, leading to some exceptional Bonefish catches both in size and abundance. The Permit, elusive as ever, made a welcome appearance after playing hide and seek behind the clouds for some time.

Our anglers experienced consistent success with Tarpon, mirroring last week’s catch numbers, but with a thrilling increase in sight casting opportunities and the landing of some notably larger specimens.

We extend a hearty congratulations to John and Brent, who both achieved the coveted Grand Slam this week—a remarkable feat indeed! Additionally, the Snook proved to be the unsung heroes, with numerous anglers setting personal records in both size and catch numbers.

In summary, it was a week that will be remembered for its superb catches and the special moments that make El Pescador the premier destination for fly fishing enthusiasts.
