Fishing and Species
The lodge is open year around because the fishing is happening year around. The tarpon fishing for small, 10-20 pound, juvenile fish up to to varsity fish weighing up to 80-100 pounds is what put this location on the map. There is also good fishing for bonefish and permit.

Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon reside near El Pescador year round, in addition to the major tarpon migration in late summer. Any day of the year you can be assured that the fishery is diverse and abundant, so practice your casting and come visit one of the world's premier saltwater destinations.

El Pescador has a neo-tropical climate; the temperature varies less than 10 degrees year round. So rather than seasons, they have microclimate changes, where they are subject to the occasional cold front in the winter months. Wind is part of the tropical environment; some days are windy, some are not. They are semi-arid and get less than 25 inches of rain annually.
