Panama Fishing May 26, 2021
Well, an update from Hooked on Panama Lodge.
It’s been a long year for everyone and we hope all our friends are doing well and staying healthy!
Finally back to some fishing here at Hooked on Panama Lodge.
We just had Craig Waltzer and his gang Dave, Jose, Luigi and Hew here from Florida fishing for two days. Craig fished with us last March right before the Covid lockdown. He was happy to be back and get some fishing in here with us, they got into a ton of Yellow-Fin Tuna action and a nice Rooster.
After Craig we had Randy Schultz who is staying with us and looking to retire here in Panama. Randy went out for a day of fishing and caught 13 Yellow-Fin Tuna. He reeled in one and then let Captain Victor and his Mate Toto take care of the rest. One was enough for Randy!
Ward Jones alsoalso came down for his second trip to the lodge to get his Black Marlin off his Bucket List and we took care of that his first morning out and topped the day off with a nice 200lb. Yellow-Fin Tuna! They brought it back in to weight it and we used our backhoe to liftef it out of the panga and weight it. Ward invited Randy out on his first day and said Randy was his lucky charm! For the rest of Ward’s trip he was focusing on a variety of Snapper’s and Rooster.
Strangely enough the Yellow-Fin Tuna bite has been ongoing since last December. Check out the photo’s below and until next time.
Tight Lines and Stay Safe!
