Offshore - Blue Water Fishing

Fishing ChartersWe are fishing the Pacific Ocean off the northern coast of Panama. This area consists of many tropical islands including Coiba, Montusa, Jicron, Ladrones, and the Contreas. It is also home of the world famous Hannibal Bank which is recognized as the prime spot in the world to catch a black marlin from December through April.

Species Available
Offshore fishing can produce blue marlin, black marlin, pacific sailfish, yellowfin tuna, dorado, and wahoo.

Fishing Methods:
Live Bait
Slow trolling live bonita is deadly on marlin and tuna. We use bait and switch with live bait to match the tackle to the fish and increase our hook-up ratios. The use of circle hooks has been implemented to reduce fish mortality.

Sport fishingRigged Natural Dead Baits
Captains Travis "Roberto" Peterson and Chi Chi Gonzalas are both excellent bait riggers. Their natural baits fish beautifully and are very productive.

Trolling Artificial Lures
This is an area where we really shine. We have an arsenal of proven big game fishing lures that are simply not found on smaller charter boats. We often troll from one fishing area to the next and have found this to produce strikes from all species.

Fly Fishing
Bait and switch flyfishing is the most challenging fishing a person can do. We use two mates in the cockpit to smoothly tease the fish in and switch over to the fly. We also maintain a large selection of terminal fly gear.
