Sport fishing is one of the most exciting passions you can have because it can take you all around the globe to world-class fishing destinations. By far, one of the best experiences you can have as an fisherman is a Gulf of Panama fishing trip.

Here’s why fishing is so amazing in the Gulf of Panama and how you can plan your trip to this unforgettable region.

Types of Fish in the Gulf of Panama

One of the best things about fishing in the Gulf of Panama is the variety of fish that can be caught here. In fact, the very name “Panama” means “abundance of fish!”

The waters around Panama are home to many different types of saltwater and deep-sea fish, such as Black and Blue Marlin, Dorado fish, Jack fish, Mackerel, Roosterfish, and Snapper. You can also catch Yellow Fin Tuna and Wahoo in our area. Better yet, the fish that live here are often much larger than ones of similar species found elsewhere in the world.

Best Gulf of Panama Fishing Areas

The Gulf of Chiriquí is known as “ground zero for Panama’s world-class fishing. This area is home to over 20 Pelagic and Inshore game fish species, with no commercial fishing operations to get in the way of sport fishermen looking to enjoy the area. The waters here are cold and rich in nutrients to support sustainable fish populations and calm conditions.

Another legendary fishing spot is Hannibal Bank, which is at the southern edge of the Gulf of Chiriquí. It is about five miles wide and two miles long. Fish are naturally attracted to this area because of the nutrients flowing in from the Humboldt Current. Large fish, such as Marlin, Sailfish, and Dorado are drawn here to hunt.
