El Pescador Fishing Report 5th July 2023

Overall the fishing was excellent, but there were a few periods that were very tough too. One of our guests, Brett, caught some nice Tarpon from the lodge dock and had some shots at good Permit. We also had some big schools of Bonefish lurking along the new seawall, so there was good fishing right from the lodge. Will Stephens, one of our regular Guest Fishing Directors, arrived at the end of the week. Will is here to support our Fishing Director, Mariano, during July and to do some fishing.


The area has seen a mix of weather. We have had some calm, almost glassy mornings and others with a stiff trade wind blowing. A few rainstorms have blown through, and some extended sunshine has been around, too.
