Sportfishing in Panama

Summary - 124 Views   
Marlin fishing in Panama is an amazing experience. One reason for this is the Zane Grey Reef. It is a relatively small seamount of solid rock which has its base on the flat continental shelf in 350 feet of water. Black, Blue and Striped Marlin abound in numbers unheard of elsewhere. Pacific Sailfish are there year-round, and from April through July multiple hookups are the rule rather than the exception.

Adventure Reports

Panama Fishing Report
20-Feb-11 - Last week started off with a bang. The Marlin were feeding on the reef and quite a few fish were released. The bite did slow down mid week but there was some decent fishing to be had further offshore. Schools of good sized Yellowfin Tunas showed up and made for some fast action. There were plenty of Dorado as well. Some anglers even ventured inshore and also had some good fishing for Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper and Almaco Jacks.

Arthur and Susan Hayes had a great week of fishing. They released 7 marlin in the 6 days. Arthur celebrated his 60th birthday on Monday, releasing 2 BLACK MARLIN both around 300 lbs that day. Susan released her first PACIFIC BLUE MARLIN estimated at 250 lbs. Randy Harley hooked into a fish of a lifetime, his first BLACK MARLIN estimated at 500 lbs.
