May 9-18/2016 Panama Fishing Report – We fished 9 days and hosted 3 great groups May 9-18, 2016 here at Sport Fish Panama Island Lodge on Isla Paridas in the heart of the Gulf of Chiriquí, Panama.
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?
The Yellowfin Tunas are here in full force! The bigger Tunas are hanging around Hannibal Bank as is the usual cycle this time of year. We caught some nice ones up to 180# and missed a couple that were definitely bigger. If you are looking to put your gear to the test this is the place…as no fish pulls harder and longer than a Panama Yellowfin Tuna! We also got few nice Wahoo and the inshore fishing was good as well. Chef Mark has been doing a great job “wowing” the clients with his culinary creations! Looking forward to a couple more groups with 8 more days offshore just this month so stay tuned!
We still have a few dates left in July and August so please contact me if you have any interest in staying and fishing here from our private island lodge?
Enjoy the pics…
