<p>Fishing started off the first of August on the slow side - some tuna action offshore but picked up after that - both inshore and offshore. A little slow on wahoo - not the double digit per day numbers we are used to for this time of year and spotty with rooster but some real quality fish caught. Very good snapper - cubera, mullet, yellow, dorado, and with 3 - 200lbs. plus yellowfin tuna. Caught, blue jacks, 2 Black Marlin, 1 Blue Marlin (with 80% of the fishing inshore), sailfish, seirra mackerel, amberjack rounding things out. We release all billfish, Cubera snapper, Rooster fish and have just started releasing all female dorado. Capt. Lee

Hi Lee:

Thanks again for another great trip to Panama Big Game. My son, nephew, and I had a ball. We knew it was the off season, but the inshore fishing was fantastic. The 2 days we fished at the Secas, we caught 3 roosters to 50lb., and 22 dorado, but the smallest was 30lb, especially the 55lb bull my son caught on a topwater popper, plus a number of other types of jacks casting to the rocks. Out on Montosa we caught a nice wahoo, and 1 nice tuna, but it was in the afternoon when we would start dropping down baits that all hell would break loose. We caught a 50lb. cubera, the largest blue trevally I have ever seen. We then located a large school of mullet snapper, and started catching one after another. After a boat load of different types of snappers, and completely out of bait and totally exhausted, it was time to head back to the lodge. Panama Big Game Club never ceases to amaze me for its tremendous amout of variety and diversity of fishing. It was my fifth trip there and I guarantee not my last. Tell all the guys at the lodge Hello, and thanks for making it a trip my son and nephew will never forget. Yours truly, Mike Love

Capt. Lee,

We had a great time. The food and hospitality was fantastic! Antonio, Juan and Narcisso worked really hard and produced lots of action for us. During the five days of fishing, we caught a total of 38 fish - three of which were the largest we've ever caught - the Dorado, Rooster and Black Marlin were all our personal records. Thanks for a great time. Thanks again, Peggy and Kirk

Lee,

We had a great time in Panama and were very impressed by your operation. The food was great, fishing was outstanding and everything went as smoothly as we could have hoped for. Hope things are going well, Ben Rosenthal
