Built in 2003…Sport Fish Panama Island Lodge was originally constructed to be a vacation home to enjoy while we were fishing in Panama. We realized that the centralized location of the island, here in the heart of the Gulf of Chiriquí, and our proximity to the epic sport fishing at Hannibal Bank, Isla Montuosa, and Isla Coiba makes this the perfect spot for a fishing lodge. We also know from experience that there are a few traveling anglers who are willing to pay a bit more for upscale accommodations, highly maintained fishing boats, top of the line equipment, professional staff, and a truly personalized experience while on a fishing vacation in Panama. Captain Shane started hosting groups from our lodge in 2005 and we have been growing ever since. Sport Fish Panama Island Lodge is the perfect remote location for discerning sport fishing enthusiasts who are looking to fish Panama in style!
