El Pescador Fishing Report 5th December 2023

This past week at El Pescador brought us back to the familiar rhythms of the sea with winds shifting into their usual patterns. Anglers enjoyed the thrill of Permit fishing under the bright Belizean sun and a lively east wind. Though always a challenge, our guests rose to the occasion, landing some impressive Bonefish, particularly on the sand flats. The Tarpon were a bit more elusive in the sunny, crystal waters, but their pursuit remained an exhilarating part of the experience. Our Snook catches continue to delight, although they didn’t quite match the extraordinary success of recent weeks.

In the spirit of the season, San Pedro sparkled under the glow of its official Christmas Tree lighting this past Saturday night. Decorations now twinkle throughout the town, mirroring the excitement we feel at El Pescador as we prepare for a festive holiday season. We’re all abuzz with holiday cheer and look forward to celebrating a wonderful Christmas with our guests!
