Nov/2016 Panama Fishing Report – We started off the 2016-2017 season with a bang here at Sport Fish Panama Island Lodge fishing the days November 25-27, 2016.
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?
Hurricane Otto decided to pass by the day before Glenn Stout and his family arrived at our private island Panama fishing lodge on Isla Paridas. Luckily the hurricane passed far away from us but did dump quite a bit of rain that caused some heavy flooding, erosion, and rainy days here in the Chiriqui providence.
Glenn and company were very good sports even after their flight on their arrival day was cancelled due to heavy rains and thunderstorms and the inclement weather we had most of the time they were here. But their great attitude and patience paid off with some pretty good fishing!
Glenn caught and released his first Blue Marlin, we had some decent inshore fishing with a few Roosterfish released, and it seemed like the Stout clan had a good time here on the island!
