May/2018 Panama Fishing Report – usual the month of May here in the Gulf of Chiriqui is inundated with Yellowfin Tunas…and we really like to fish for Tunas! 

We fished 20 days hosting 6 great groups here on Isla Paridas at our upscale Panama fishing resort.  Our sport fishing lodge is 12 miles off Boca Chica, Panama in the heart of the Gulf of Chiriqui. A little plug there, tell your friends! Plugs are not only for fishing…..

The Tunas have really started to move up into the gulf here as the yearly cycle seems to be starting a bit early. For the most part we had some real good luck with the Tunas offshore. We did have a couple of days where we couldn’t get them to bite but made up for it inshore with a Roosterfish or a Cubera Snapper!

We hosted a bunch of cool groups including filming with groups from our sponsors Grundens, Yeti, and Blackfin Rods! We also had the pleasure of hosting a few of our favorite groups again including Don Hunt, John Hinton, Tim Wintrode, and the crazy (really) Maynard clan.

More of the May/2018 Panama Fishing Report – The fish Gods were looking down on us favorably again as we ran into some truly “National Geographic” feeding frenzies offshore and had some pretty damn good catches! Not only did we get some big Tunas but we had some great catches of Roosterfish, Dorado, and Cubera Snapper!

Enjoy the pics!…
