Panama Marlin Fishing
Hooked on Panama
Panama has long been considered a fishing hot spot, as last season was a resounding success and this season is shaping up to be even better. We can’t wait to receive your inquiry and recommend that you try out this fantastic destination. Call us today to secure your spot.
We have designed a six day, five night Panama Marlin fishing trip with three full days of saltwater action in one of the worlds most prolific fisheries. Your trip begins with your arrival into Panama City, where you will be met and be transferred to your hotel for the evening. The next day, you will be transferred to the domestic airport for your one hour flight to the town of David, where a lodge representative will meet you. The lodge owners Mike & Dan Peavy will be on hand to greet your arrival and will assist you in getting settled in before dinner is served. The next three days you will be up for a 6:30am breakfast and then head out for full days of rod bending action.
Many anglers have heard of the famed Isla Montuosa, Isla Ladrones and Isla Coiba fisheries and these areas are certainly within striking distance of our fleet of brand new 35 ft. custom built Sportfishermen. However, closer to the lodge, there are numerous drop offs and underwater canyons which have produced healthy numbers of marlin over the years. The beauty of the lodge location is their proximity to some very good inshore fishing for Roosters, Grouper, Snapper and the like in addition to these Marlin hot spots.
The lodge sports boats in the 33-35 ft. range, all fully outfitted with top of the line equipment for trolling, baitcasting and spin fishing. Shimano and Penn reels are on all boats as well as the latest in communications and fish finding equipment. Your local captain has extensive regional knowledge and will definitely put you in the fish. The lodge owners have extensive fishing experience, with over a dozen years experience fishing the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and nearly three decades of marlin fishing the Hawaiian island chain.
As you will see, this is a very “hands on” operation run by serious fishermen, for fishermen. The boats will be moored just a few hundred yard from the shore on the tranquil waters of the bay in front of the lodge. You will board an amphibious vehicle on the beach which will transport you in comfort out to your waiting boat for a full day on the water. Whether it is casting to schools of jacks, trolling live blue runners for roosters, bottom bumping for giant cubera snapper and grouper, or trying your luck at one of the numerous drops for monster marlin, you are sure to enjoy a week of great fishing action.
You will be staying in the air conditioned comfort of one of the 10 newly constructed villas overlooking the lush tropical foliage and the Pacific. These spacious, studio sized villas all have two beds, a sitting area, as well as a covered lanai. Your villa will be just steps from the ocean, the pool, and the 3,000 square foot restaurant, bar and activity pavilion. This main dining area also has a covered outdoor porch in the event you elect to relax in the tropical breeze and take your meals outside.
By Kevin Gehm – February 2013 As those who fish the blue water are well aware, Guatemala is the mountain top when it comes to high volume sailfish action. So, when I recently had an opportunity to take a long weekend to head down to visit with several Trek anglers,...
