Dec/2018 Panama Fishing Report – December 2018 here at the lodge was nothing short of awesome!

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?

Dec/2018 Panama Fishing Report con’t – We had super smooth seas and some excellent fishing for our groups that came from all over the world! Excellent catches of Black Marlin and Blue Marlin for all of our groups as well as many nice Dorado and some big Yellowfin Tunas offshore.

Inshore the fishing was just as good with some impressive catches of Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper, and Blue Trevalle as well as many of the other species we catch regularly. Enjoy the pics….
