Big Game Marlin Fishing
Yellowfin Tuna Fishing
Panama’s Gulf of Chiriqui is home to some of the best inshore and offshore fishing in the world. Annually ranked as one of the top destinations for saltwater anglers, our fishing grounds are home to huge quantities of blue & black marlin as well as some of the best yellowfin tuna fishing in the world. This big game action takes place at famous hot spots like the Hannibal Bank and Montuosa Island, which is an easy run from our lodge’s marina. The inshore fishing is just as good as we offer not only incredible variety, but also trophy 50+ lb roosterfish and cubera snapper on a regular basis. So whether you want big game offshore fishing or light tackle inshore fishing, or a mix of both, we have you covered.
