El Pescador Fishing Report 25th April 2023

The weather was pleasant on Ambergris Caye this week, with only a few instances of rain and mostly sunny skies. Some nice Permit landed, and while we saw many more most were not taking our offerings. As for the Tarpon, we weren’t seeing as many as last week. Our guests managed to jump a bunch and landed six. Tarpon will always test your skills. Bonefish action is almost always good to excellent; this week was no exception—some lovely larger Bones made for some singing reels, and even the small ones think they are goliaths. Plan your visit and join in the action!

Good numbers of Bonefish (172) were landed, averaging 2 to 3 lbs, with several ranging from 3 to 6 lbs.

11 this week. We saw plenty more but getting them to take was a challenge.

Six landed but many were jumped. Getting any Tarpon to hand takes lots of skill and luck. Almost like hitting a fastball from a seasoned baseball pitcher. You just keep trying!

Other species

Some Mangrove Snapper, Barracuda, Mutton Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Needle Fish
