El Pescador Fishing Report 9th March 2023

Bouts of high winds gusting above 25 mph had hampered fishing conditions this past week until the weekend when winds returned to normal levels. The sun has been out consistently, though. Permit and Tarpon were challenging to see on the flats despite the sunny weather because the wind created more chop on the water. Fish were relatively grabby when we could get on them, and the weekend was more fun with gentler breezes.


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

E/SE 11-18 Mph. Gusting to 23 Mph
