12.13/2016 Panama Fishing Report – We fished 3 days with John and Diane from Florida here at Sport Fish Panama Island Lodge the dates of December 13-15, 2017.
We are the closest fishing lodge in Panama to the offshore action at Hannibal Bank and Isla Montuosa. A thirty minute boat ride (12 miles) from Boca Chica, and a one hour ride from David’s port of Pedregal, brings you to the largest island in the chain…Isla Paridas. No big industrial commercial fishing operations, and governmental protection of all billfish are a few of the reasons why fishing Panama is so great.
In addition our island lodge is a place where those who do not want to fish can enjoy and have fun while the anglers chase marlin, tuna, wahoo, grouper and more?
12.13/2016 Panama Fishing Report con’t – The bite was a bit slow offshore as the Marlin did not want to cooperate. A couple of days prior green water moved in offshore making the conditions less than ideal for our shot at the Marlin John was targeting. We did get a couple of nice Pacific Sailfish on the second day but other than that it was slow. Thank God the secret Roosterfish spot that gives it up more times than not saved the day…on two of the three days! Matter of fact the first day we got skunked offshore…hit the secret spot on the way home and John hooked a monster Rooster that shook the hook boat side after a 15 minute fight! But day 2 we got some Roosterfish revenge as Diane caught and released a 40 pounder! Day three…same deal at the same spot…and John got his Rooster that was all of 50 pounds! Great time with these guys!
Enjoy the pics…
