Another fun week at Hooked on Panama Lodge. First, we had Joe Kornwasser back with us for his second trip this season. He was fishing with Captain Carlos again. Joe really likes fishing with these guys. Joe did a half day upon arrival, at the point. Got some nice snappers. 2nd day, one marlin and I think the biggest sail we have seen.Read More »

Multiple groups coming and going, got a lot of good photos, but not from everyone. 🙁 🙁 The offshore bite has slowed, but the nearshore bite has been great. First, Linda Bumgarner and husband Jim. Their first day they got 6 roosters all 40+ pounds, Cuberas…Read More »
Got another report from last week. Sorry it has taken a bit of time, but have been waiting on photos. I miss the days of people using cameras instead of phones for all their photos. 🙂 🙂 Everyone here last week was pretty much repeats with only a handful of newbies mixed in.Read More »

Ron Wendt was down with us again. Brought his friend Bruce and two newbies Lee and Mike. Fishing still rocks. Marlin, Tuna, Dorados and Sails. It’s kind of strange about the tuna bite. We normally get a short run during January all around 40 to 50 pounders. This run, they are all beast!!! Average over 100 pounds, several over 200.Read More »

We had six groups with us from December 8th through December 18th. Joe Kornwasser from Los Angeles came down solo to check our place for future family trips and killed it on the Marlin. 2 Blacks, 2 Blues, a double hook up on Sailfish and Dorados in the mix.
The Season has started and we had Colleen Gallagher, Terry Moss, Austin and Jeff spear divers from Diving for a Cause who delivered 90 lbs of donations of sports equipment and school supplies for their future 2020 April trip. They shot some Dorado and saw some Yellow Fin Tuna that was moving too fast to shoot.Read More »
