El Pescador Fishing Report 27th September 2023

A great group came down with Mossy Creek Flyfishing in Harrisburg, VA. Nick, we are glad you broke your tarpon curse and we look forward to next year!

We also had some father/son pairings come down to try some Grand Slam fishing. The younger fishermen had many “firsts” and were excited about their next trip. We especially enjoy seeing the more youthful generation catch the addiction! I know one young man who has become a little obsessed with Tarpon and another who can recite the long list of fish species he landed on this trip.

Overall, it was a terrific week of fishing. Calmer mornings let us take a few runs to the mainland for a change of pace. We got after the permit when the sun was shining, and many good Tarpon were encountered, and some landed! We are seeing more schools of large Jack Crevalle these days, too.

We have a few boats going out this coming week, and they are all diehard permit fishermen. We are wishing them all good luck!


Some very calm mornings with a steady breeze in the afternoon. Some west winds for a change.
