May 24-26/2016 Panama Fishing Report – We fished 3 days, May 24-26, 2016, with 3rd time returning clients Drew Herma and marine artist KC Scott from HUK performance fishing apparel here at Sport Fish Panama Island Lodge.
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.
May 24-26/2016 Panama Fishing Report – Drew and KC this time came with cameramen Zach and Victor to film a new episode of the show “MONEY FISH” that will appear on the Sportsman Channel later this year. I have been telling Drew and KC to get down here between April-June for a few years now to get the chance to film some of the epic Yellowfin Tuna action that happens here every year.
Well they picked some great dates as we were lucky enough to run into some awesome action and got it all on camera! Tuna frenzy on a bait ball, big 240# Yellowfin Tuna to the gaff, a 40# Bull Dorado in the boat, and released a 40# plus Roosterfish to cap it all off at the last minute! What a trip! We can’t wait to see the show! Thanks to HUK for coming down to film!
Enjoy the pics…
