El Pescador Fishing Report 28th February 2023

Increasing bouts with high winds gusting above 25 mph have hampered fishing conditions this past week. The sun has been out consistently, though. Permit and Tarpon are challenging to see on the flats despite the sunny weather because the wind creates more chop on the water. Anglers have focused on schools of Bonefish, and small Tarpon and Snook continue to be found in and around mangrove growth during cooler temperatures and low tide. We have had patches of good permit fishing.


High wind conditions during early hours and during the middle of the day. Sunny to Partly Cloudy, temperatures in the low 80s. Precipitation: light to none
