I went to Panama Sportfishing lodge as a scouting trip in April and I like what I saw there. Coiba region in Panama truely provides world class fishing opportunities. Marlin and tuna are the major attraction offshore. However you can go inshore for jigging bottom fish or popping roosterfish/cubera snapper if you look for variety. They say tuna are there year round, but big number of tuna usually start to show up in Jan, and Feb/Mar/April are the prime time for tuna based on my observation. There is no guarantee in fishing, but I expect we catch lots of tuna on jigs and poppers on our trip in April. The itenenary of the trip is as follows: -Arriving at Panama airport by noon on April 18. -Leaving for the lodge by a bus. It takes about 5 hours to the lodge. -dinner and orientation after arriving at the lodge. -fishing everyday for 5 days from April 19-23. wakeup call at 6:00 am and fishing hours are about 10 hours from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. -leaving the lodge after breakfast on April 24. After sightseeing Panama City go to Panama airport for the departure in the evening. eight fishermen joining the trip are: 1. kilsong in NJ 2-4 three fishermen from Korea 5. monocom in NJ 6. peter814 in NY 7. bretbaker in Texas 8. masonboro in NC This is going to be very exciting trip.
