WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING
Bonefishing was good both from the boat and wading, with some really large fish landed. Guests encounter some large schools of smaller fish in 2 foot water, as well as larger bonefish patrolling the edges of the flats.
Several large permit were landed on fly with anglers primarily targeting fish from the boat. We hope to see more tailing fish on the flats in the coming weeks.
Light winds and sunshine improved the tarpon opportunities, allowing guests to fish from the boat along mangrove edges to sighted fish.
Snook, grouper, cobia, gray snapper, and mutton snapper.
No Grand Slams this week but very happy guests.
Flies that worked:
Bonefish: Christmas Island Special, Orange size 6.
Permit: Tan Squimp in size 6 & 8, Mantis Shrimp.
Tarpon: White and black and purple toads and bunnies 2/0 or 3/0
El Pescador had the opportunity to host our second Orvis Bonefish Bonanza of 2019. A lot of bonefish were landed and the highlight of the week was a double on big permit by Logan and Bryan.
