After seeing that El Pescador was opening its doors once again after getting the gold standard by local authorities we were all waiting with bated breath in the office to see the first report. Our predictions of amazing fishing were correct with huge numbers of Permit, Bonefish and Tarpon cruising. I’ll now hand it over to fishing manager at El Pescador;
October 4th to 11th, 2020
This week was truly incredible with huge numbers of Permit being seen. They were very difficult to hook, and made the anglers work very hard !
Bonefish were around in big numbers and so many were caught daily that we do not have an accurate tally. One boat accounted for over 20 fish in a day !
The big story of the week was definitely the Tarpon. Fish were spotted everywhere, and our guests enjoyed a true bonanza. JC and Jeo hooked 10 Tarpon in one day and boated 4. The biggest fish was a good 60 lbs.
Mike and Bill boated 3 in one day and went on to catch a few more.
The story of the week was Bryan fishing with Cesar. We honestly don’t know how many Tarpon they hooked, but they boated 14. The biggest fish was a beautiful specimen of 100 Lbs. ! A total of 26 Tarpon were boated.
This was a very special week, and mention must be made of our top quality guides for putting guests on the fish. To quote a 16 time returning guest, Ken Z ” The El Pescador guides are probably the best flats guides in the world”
We agree with him . Well done to our amazing team!
