Panama offers a variety of fantastic fishing opportunities ranging from Jacks, Cabrera Snapper, Barracuda, and Rooster Fish, all the way to Yellowfin Tuna in excess of 2oo lbs. caught on spinning gear.

If that wasn't exciting enough, there are large Black Marlin prowling around.  All of this creates an extended fishing season.  With these long seasons, fishing is always an adventure.
