Well ! we finally got all the Tournament anglers at the Lodge and things are starting pretty good with the pre-fish day , weather is holding up pretty well , with all the anglers fishing the Montuosa and Hannibal area , the tourney is being monitored by Tony Pena that is going to do a write up,YFT's hitting poppers like there is tomorrow , Nice catches of Tuna with GanderVA catching a YFT (100#) on a popper , everyone had there fill on popping for Yft's and switch to , what YFT's enthusiast as garbage fish "Marlin"(what ?) , there was nice Blue Marlin that circled Capt. Macho's boat for 30 mins. , actually was attempting to hit a nice yft's that was being reeled in, Richard threw a popper at it and manage to get a fight out of this fish , that was either curious or saw Tony Pena in the boat and remembered him from his prior trip , Jack hook a nice fish as well Panama Sportfishing, panama fishing charters | Panamsportfishinlodge.com

What a way to start the first day of the tournament , not only it is first of a kind , it also shows that off season in Panama is about the weather not the fishing , all anglers starting out early with anticipation , boats went out and headed for Isla Montuosa , it look a little gloomy at first when a huge cloud cover was moving thru the island but it quickly moved on , they got right away on a huge school of Yft's doing acrobats together with the spotted Dolphins ,a 90+ lbs fish was hook first on a Popper by Skip Hoagland and Lucky TJ threw his popper and hooked up on a fish that weigh in at 130lbs. on a OTI Tuna Sniper and of course his OTI Wombat , this is the popper of the week so far , A very good day for this , everybody hooking up on several fish ( 40 to 80 + lbs. ) , even the watch boat got on the action (me) , enjoy the pics. (more to come )

Tell TJ congratulations on his catch. I know he was disappointed when he couldn't go with me and wacker. I wanted to meet him and fish with him on my trip to panama sportfishing lodge. After fighting heavy seas this weekend here in Texas, I now only hope I get to fish in nice calm water one more time in my life.
