El Pescador Fishing Report 25th May 2023

Beautiful weather. That was the key for the week.  We had some groups from Orvis in this week, which is always a great time. We saw a lot of good Tarpon, jumped a bunch of them, and landed a few. Permit were plentiful at times but, as always, finicky and spooky. Some nice ones were landed, so a good permit week.

Jimmy caught a huge Mutton Snapper on the fly and shared it with everyone when the kitchen cooked it up for bar snacks. Stephen got a grand slam with some lovely fish. And, of course, good times were had by all.


Very calm most mornings with enough breeze in the afternoon to cool you down while having a beer after fishing.
