El Pescador Fishing Report | 1 – 8 May | Belize


One destination that NEVER lets us or our customer down is El Pescador in Belize, as you can see from below we get regular reports from them which highlights just how good the fishing & guiding is at this amazing resort.



Bonefish: First bonefish awards this week go to customer Jim and Ron, who started out fishing exclusively for bonefish, but caught enough of the silver ghost that they ventured out into the land of permit and tarpon.

Permit: The permit success continues to prove that the catch and release law has really helped this species. Congratulations to Emily for the first permit of the week, AJ and Susan used their only permit to the best advantage, adding the bonefish and tarpon the same day, Stephen landed a lovely permit, Joe got his first, and John landed 2 permit on one of his days on the water.

Tarpon: Jack started the tarpon parade with 2 nice ones on his first day, John got another shortly thereafter with Stephen, AJ, & Susan landing tarpon as part of their slam days. Some of the Migratory tarpon are showing up a little early this month as several big ones were hooked and lost almost immediately.

“Remember El Pescador is the perfect destination to take your family while you enjoy the fishing”

Grand Slam: 2 Grand Slams this week plus the lesser but still noble soft slam. Our Grand Slam wall of fame got a little bigger this week with Susan and A.J.’s names added for their success with the big three. Stephen recorded a “Soft Slam” (All three species in one trip rather than one day).

Other Species: Our customer this week also caught lots of other species such as Sharks, Jacks, ladyfish, snappers, cudas, shad and sting rays.

To sum up the weeks fishing for our customers would be great fishing, lots of fish caught, many missed chances all in good fishing weather.
