    Were staying at panamasportfishing lodge, It's very nice. People are very friendly and accommodations are excellent. Great boats and Capt's. Excellent service. Fantastic place.

    Were doing very well with hammering the fish. After my nice black marlin yesterday, Wacker pulls off a big one today. He caught a black marlin 400+ pounds on an avet hoo=x and a OTI 7'6" conventional popping rod.:eek: :eek: :eek:

    When I say 400+ I mean over 400 pounds, The black marlin we are catching are probably over 500 pounds. Lot's of popper action. I'm having trouble typing on this little keyboard on my laptop, so I'll just post some pics of the last two days.
