El Pescador Fishing Report 8th November 2023

Despite predictions of an incoming tropical storm, Lady Luck smiled upon El Pescador this past week. While the Caribbean was spared a swirling tempest, she did leave us with remnants of low-pressure clouds and rain. But not even temperamental weather could dampen the spirits of our anglers from Montana and the Pacific Northwest venturing into salty flats for the first time.

It was a week of “firsts,” indeed. Bonefish leapt, and Tarpon tail-walked amidst cheers of joy. Though the Permit proved wily in cloudy conditions, shots were had. And Snook, always a favorite, didn’t disappoint eager rods.

At week’s end, smiling faces and stories galore proved good fishing and good friends conquer all—even unusual weather.
