One of the best parts about fishing is that you can do it in many unique and amazing places. From rivers to lakes, bays, oceans, and in-shore and off-shore opportunities near and far, there is no shortage of epic fishing spots on our planet.

So, why do we choose to fish in Pamana, of all places? Here’s why Panama is a bucket list fishing destination that every fishing enthusiast should experience at least once.

Over 50 Species of Game Fish

The waters around Panama are home to a diverse collection of fish, offering fun experiences and challenges for anglers of all levels. There are over 50 game fish species you can catch here, and over 250 IGFA World Records have been set in our local waters. Some popular fish to catch are yellowfin tuna, marlin, and roosterfish.

Premier Saltwater Sport Fishing Conditions

The Gulf of Chiriquí is considered “ground zero” for our world-class fishery in Panama. This gulf offers fantastic conditions for sport fishing because of the nutrient-rich waters from the ocean floor that bring food for fish up to the surface. The famous Hannibal Bank is one of the most legendary fishing spots in the world and among the best places on the planet to catch marlin and tuna.

A Well-Established Fishing Tourism Industry

Fishing tourism is a way of life in Panama, which means that we can offer you various fishing experiences to match your interests and budget. For example, you can book a Boca Chica day charter through us or book an all-inclusive fishing vacation package. Packages accommodate two to five anglers looking for a multi-day excursion up to five days and six nights long.

Government Protection and Conservation

Fishing and conservation go hand-in-hand because we care about the environment, protecting natural resources, and ensuring that many more generations of people can experience our waters. There are no large industrial or commercial fishing operations in the Gulf of Chiriquí, and our governmental laws protect all billfish here.

A Tropical Environment and Fascinating Culture

A fishing trip to Panama can involve much more than just spending time out on the water. There are lots of things to do besides fishing in Panama, including kayaking, snorkeling, and visiting historical sites. Many of our clients take extra days to explore other parts of this amazing country to experience the food, music, and culture of the people who call it home.

Our Unique Sport Fishing Lodge

Something else that makes Panama a bucket list fishing destination is our unique sport fishing lodge that is off-grid and a self-contained hideaway in a tropical paradise. It offers an authentic vacation escape with modern comforts like Wi-Fi, televisions, daily laundry service, and stocked beverage refrigerators. We have three private guest houses at our lodge – two with three bedrooms and one with two bedrooms. They all have ocean views and come with breakfast, lunch, and dinner served daily.
