FISHING REPORT

January 10th – 16th, 2016

Weather Conditions: Mostly fair weather, a few rain showers here and there.

Winds: 5-15 mph a few mornings showing some winds from the West turning to every direction.

Air Temperature: Highs are in the mid 80’s, lows were in the mid 70’s.

Water Temperature: Temp: 79 F. degrees

Barometric Pressure: 29.8 – 30.05

Sunrise: 6:26 am Sunset: 5:38 pm

Moonphase: The first quarter moon was on January 16th.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): Lots of bone fish for all of those who threw at them. Sarah and Matt, Greg, Marc and Jason, Terry and Cole, John, John 2, Jay, Tom, Ron, Todd, Stewart, Eric, Jim and Steve got some good fishing time in and were rewarded with out cooperative bonefish. Not to be left out… Shelly and Brandon, Brad, Matt and Mark, Joe, Russ, Rusty, and Ed, and Mike and Cindy rounds out the bonefishing crowd. We try not to take bonefish for granted here, but it seems everyone will catch a bonefish if they have the determination to work at it.

PERMIT (Palometta): Todd’s permit was a part of his grand slam this week as was Charlie’s… but Matt broke into the permit world with a lovely fish! Several more permit were landed this week thanks to the good permit weather.

TARPON (Sabalo): Ed was the tarpon master with 2 real good size tarpon he landed while blind casting down by Long Caye. Long Caye is known for its migratory tarpon fishing in the summer and early fall but many people don’t know there are some big fish down there year round. It took some blind casting to some rolling fish to get them hooked up. Todd’s tarpon was a part of his slam, Charlie was missing the tarpon for a while but pulled through.

OTHER SPECIES: Rocco got a nice snook, some barracudas were landed, jacks, snappers and others!

Grand Slam: Our grand slam heroes this week were Charlie and Todd. Charlie started the week on fire and Todd finished the week on a high note cranking in a bonefish, permit and tarpon in a single day. There is recognition by the IGFA for any grand slam caught so I hope you guys file an application for your certificate!

FLIES THAT WORKED

FOR BONEFISH - Pretty much if it was in front of a bonefish it worked, but our guides seem to like the simple lead eye CI special.

FOR PERMIT - Christmas Island Special, Bauer Crab.

FOR TARPON - Black Death, White toads!

This Week’s Summary:

Permit were hungry and the fishing pressure is light at the lodge.

Fish On!

FISHING REPORT

January 24th – January 30th, 2016

Weather Conditions: Mostly fair weather all week with a mix of clouds and sun

Winds: Again this week, 5–15 mph moderate winds from full west, swinging to the north and all the way east and everything in between

Air Temperature: Highs are in the mid to low 80’s, lows were in the mid to low 70’s

Water Temperature: Temp: 78 F. degrees

Barometric Pressure: 29.85 – 30.18

Sunrise: 6:25 am Sunset: 5:45 pm

Moonphase: The full moon was on January 23rd and the last quarter moon was on the 31st.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): A nice quiet week at the lodge with just 5–6 boats going out on a daily basis. Our bonefish did not disappoint and their cooperation was greatly appreciated by all of those who went out this week. The Orvis Saltwater School dominated the fishing and the students and guests got bonefish daily. The theory is easy to understand, but not so easy to execute. Once you spot a school of bonefish, simply throw the fly just past the fish’s perceived path far enough in front of the fish that you don’t spook it, but not so far that he has too much time to change paths. When the fish is in visual range of the fly, a couple short strips and fish on!! Now here is the hard truth… seeing these bright silver fish is not easy, the wind is blowing, the fish are spooky and you have just a few seconds to deliver the fly on target to moving fish about 40 feet away! When it all goes as planed it is simple, right? Congratulations to all who succeeded this week!

PERMIT (Palometta): Tom G. had a trip of a lifetime as he was able to land 2 permit this week. For many people this is a lifetime total! Berth matched the feat with his matched set pf permit and John, Tom and Josh had a permit apiece during their stay here at El Pescador.

TARPON (Sabalo): Dick was the tarpon guru to start the week and in an unusual event, Junior landed a tarpon right in front of the lodge! A few other bites, a bunch of follows and who knows how many shots were made. Keeping your cool while face to face with a tarpon takes some practice!

OTHER SPECIES: Jacks, Cudas, and snapper!

Grand Slam: No slams this week.

FLIES THAT WORKED

FOR BONEFISH - Christmas Island Special – lead eyes

FOR PERMIT - custom crab patterns, CI Special size 4, Gotcha

FOR TARPON - cockroach in olive, black bunny, Olive toad.

This Week’s Summary:

A very solid week of fishing for everyone at the lodge. A group of doctors from Wilderness Medical joined us for a retreat/business trip.

FISHING REPORT

Feb. 1 – Feb. 13, 2016

Weather Conditions: The weather ranged the gamete from clear, cloudy, rainy, calm windy with only a day or two of clear skies and low winds. It got really cold last week with a low in the mid-sixtys!

Winds: 5-23 mph rotating from North to east and everything in between.

Air Temperature: Highs were in low 80’s with lows in the low 70’s, dipping to lows of 60 and highs of 70 late in the week.

Water Temperature: Temp: 77 F. degrees

Barometric Pressure: 29.88 – 30.22

Sunrise: 6:20 am Sunset: 5:22 pm

Moonphase: The full moon was on the 8th.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): As the cooler days kept coming we could tell that the bonefish were a little less enthusiastic the colder it got. There were some slower days for those who continued to sightfish, but it remained quite productive for those who fished deeper where the water was a bit warmer. All guests were successful with bonefish each day; they pursued them even with the chilly weather. The high boat of the week was 20 fish.

PERMIT (Palometta): Tom G. got his hands on a permit to start the trip off right, Kate was able to get a permit, our friend Howard was thrilled with his permit. Louis was the last to add a permit to his fish totals this week.

TARPON (Sabalo): Jeff got a nice 70 pound fish out on a perfect day on the deeper flats of Savannah, Tom leadered his fish but was denied the picture, El Pescador’s returning guest Rob got a tarpon on his first day out, but as the weather cooled off, so did his luck with those persnickety tarpon! Amanda got the prize ~ landing 2 tarpon in one day next to her tarpon-less spouse Jason. Jason was happier about Amanda’s fish than he would have been if he caught them, so all was well. Louis, a French Canadian enjoyed landing a tarpon and playing a few other. Lots of follows, some bites and a few to the boat.

OTHER SPECIES: Jacks, Cudas, and snapper!

Grand Slam: Louis ended up with a super slam for the week and to him it didn’t seem to matter to him that it was not all in one day – just landing each over the week was a thrill!

FLIES THAT WORKED

FOR BONEFISH - Christmas Island Special, Crazy Charlie

FOR PERMIT - Christmas Island Specials, Mantis Shrimp, Raghead crab

FOR TARPON - White Toad, Cockroach in olive, Purple Bunny, Cockroach in natural.

This Week’s Summary:

A big thanks to Teagan, my 8 year old assistant, who helped me with the pin ceremony each evening! Rarely does a cold front make it far enough south to impact our fishing, but this one lasted about a week and we could see signs of fish leaving the shallow water in favor of the deeper warm water. We had to look a little deeper to find the fish as the water cooled.

Fish On!

Dwight, Tim and Jean, Pete and Lindsay, Ivan and Misty, Tom and Laura, Randy, Kerry and Debbie, Jon and Kathy, Curtis, Jay, Jeff, Mike, Jamie and Kevin, Mike, JD, Stephen and Jerry all brought joy to the flats of Ambergris Caye. Hundreds of bonefish were landed during Orvis’ bonefish Bonanza Susan and Ray from the UK met their friends Mike and Sandy and enjoyed the flats, the town, and the relaxation easily found here at El Pescador. Returning guests Bill and Evie, Kevin, Doug, Matt, Will and Samantha started another trip here this week, it is always great to see old friends.

PERMIT (Palometta): Samantha had a big grin when I saw her on Saturday and I knew something was up. It was a 30 pound permit! 45 minutes of battle ended with the fish in her capable hands. Betsy was also proud of her first permit much to the delight of Ron ( who may have been a tad jealous as well). The women of the lodge tamed the permit this week!

TARPON (Sabalo): Duber, our Orvis host, landed the only tarpon of the week that made it al the way to the boat. Ron had one on for a while only to part ways with a spectacular jump, a few more bites and a few more jumps from other guest rounded out a relatively slow week for the Silver King.

FISHING REPORT

Feb. 21- 27, 2016

Weather Conditions: Some rainy days, some cloudy days, in general not much sun this week.

Winds: Mostly from the North, Northwest, North Northeast and a wide range of 5–20 mph.

Air Temperature: Highs were between 75 and 85 with lows in the low 70’s

Water Temperature: Temp: 79 F. degrees

Barometric Pressure: 29.9. – 30.22

Sunrise: 6:12 am Sunset: 5:56 pm

Moonphase: The full moon was on the 22nd.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): Bonefish bonefish bonefish, the silver ghostclad with mirrors, perfectly camouflaged no matter what color bottom they are on. They are built for speed and eating things on or even under the bottom. Ever see a bonefish puff out a critter that is covered in sand? The can jet spray water out their mouth to uncover prey! Remarkable. Kevin and Jamie, got the hang of bonefishing right away, Tom, Glenn. Larry, Austin, Ross, Rick and his son Connor, Sue and Ray (from England), Jeremy and Liza, Gene Greg and Terri, returning guests (now part of the family) Evie and Bill, Mandy and Glen Chris, Steve, Matt Boomer, Jim. All had a great time enticing bonefish with fly rods, spin rods.. everything! Gene, Greg and Terri, Mandy and Glen Chris, Steve, Matt Boomer, Jim. All had a great time enticing our lovely bonefish !

PERMIT (Palometta): Kevin was the start permit player this week as he somehow got at least one permit 3 days in a row with his sweetheart Jamie cheering him on. Although Jamie did not land a permit she had some shots and out fished Kevin in the tarpon department!

TARPON (Sabalo): Go Jamie!! She landed the first tarpon of the week showing Kevin how it’s done (payback for the above permit lashing Kevin gave Jamie!). Glenn had the fun part: the eat and the first jump, this is where its at for a tarpon junkie, watching them eat a fly and then the unbelievable jump that usually follows. The jump can be a low greyhounding leap or a perfectly vertical gill shaking explosion. Miss Glenda “queen of the tarpon” decided to skip the old wisdom of starting with bonefish and went directly to tarpon. Awesome! Chris followed this up with a nice silver king, Austin brought 2 to the boat 1 day, and Bill celebrated his birthday in style with a beautiful; fish coming to hand.

OTHER SPECIES: Jacks, Sharks, Barracuda, Snappers, and a crazy pelican! ) Oh I almost forgot Evies trophy box fish!

Congratulations to Keith for his first permit ever and it was done with great humility by giving the credit to his guide.

FISHING REPORT

March 6th - March 13th, 2016

Water Temperature: Temp: 79 F. degrees

Barometric Pressure: 29.82 – 30.07

Moonphase: The new moon was on the 8th.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): Our guests were able to lean on the bonefish to make great days out of the really strong winds we were struck with this week. John brought a great group of his Montana fly shop friends with him this week http://www.thetackleshop.com/. John,& Kayla, John#2, Rick, Bill, Tim, Tom, Wayne fished daily and most had some personal bonefish records this week. Check out the shop if you are ever heading to Montana. Lots of returning guests arrived for anywhere from their 2nd to their 10th visits. Jim and Lindsay and their friends John and Linda never seem to stay long enough as their week flew by. Emily and Chris brought future fishing pro Jack – Jack is less than 2 but will be fly casting soon. Emily didn’t get to fish last time ( because of little Jack being really little) but this time she made sure to get her very first bonefish under her belt. Ian and Robin were bone-fishing machines, Leslie, Grayson and Sophia spent a day on the flats with a nice shore lunch, CJ and Taylor fished hard, Toby and son Quintin got some bones, and Fred, Jeff, Jed, Mike, Davis, and Angus all had fun with our bonefish populations.

PERMIT (Palometta): Jeff landed a permit early in the week inspiring others to have faith even in the wind. Taylor brought a permit to leader, returning guest Jim was able to get another permit to add to his permit total and Chris got the most this week with 2 to the boat.

TARPON (Sabalo): Returning guest John had the only real encounter with a tarpon this week as he jumped one early on right out of the gate. With the heavy winds this was no easy feat!

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): The bonefishing was no surprise with boats landing as many as 25 fish. Each day out. Barry, Jim. Bill, Buddy had their way with the bonefish although their true passion was permit. Long time guests, Scott, Gina & John (first bonefish ever honors for Gina this trip!) all had a blast, Lon and Jan returned again this year with Jan tanning like a champ on the boat and by the pool and Lon handling most of the fishing duties, Norm and Beth’s 18th visit to EL Pescador was an honor for us… somehow the permit and tarpon did not get the memo to play fair with them! Jim, Carey, Jeff, Brian, John and Dana, Jim and Cameron, Ron and Sheri, Ann and Roger, JC and Bri, Evelyn and Bruce, Nancy and Chip, Willie and Jenn, Warner and Christine (father daughter team) Duff and Donald ( father and son) all enjoyed the prolific bonefishing we have on and near the island.

PERMIT (Palometta): Poor John had more permit eat this week than just about anybody, but none came to the boat.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi):

PERMIT (Palometta): Permit were on fire this week – lots of personal bests – big fish, small fish, fish caught in windy weather, calm weather, sun and clouds. The common denominator was working hard and sticking it out! I don’t know where to start about the Osborne/Hince family! Tom (the father) landed three in1 day, Jason got one to the boat, and Suzanne fooled and landed 3 over 2 days of fishing, outside that productive family Bump got on the board with 3 in one day, and Chuck in his annual Pilgrimage to Belize landed one late in the week.

TARPON (Sabalo): Tarpon fishing picked up with Kris and Ned both landing one, CJ and Bri both got tarpon to the boat making 2 couples who all landed a tarpon. Not so with Ann who proudly out-fished her fishing mates with a solid tarpon, Roger landed a beauty, Will did the same, Tom outfoxed a resident tarpon, and lots more had a few shots at some smart fish following the fly for 20 feet but never sealing the deal. Matt finished up the week with a tarpon that completed his slam.

OTHER SPECIES: 2 species of jacks, 3 kinds of snappers, snook, barracudas, and lots more!
