Sailfish and Dorado are Red Hot in Panama

Capt. John Kipp

Puerto Armuelles - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hello to all:

First a little background.
Our "new" lodge, with it's beach front location sits less than two miles from "Blue water", the highway for all pelagic species found here in Panama. In the last two weeks we have had phenomenal catches reported by our guests and captains. As you all know most fish stories always start with "This is no s##t" ,but we have truly seen double digit sail fish days and Marlin landed daily. Our nightly meals have featured mouth watering fresh dorado and tuna. It just can't get much better as we enter of busy season.

New fleet additions:

W e have just finished putting together Two new boats to add to our growing fleet. Rex Hudson, our co owner and boat builder, has now added a second 35' deep sport to our sport fishing fleet. The "Miss Barica" gives us our third offshore boat. The boat was sea trialed just in time to take a group of fishermen put together by our friend and fellow fishing fanatic Frank Carbone of "Hawg Hunters".
Frank put together a great group of anglers as well as Fox television host Joe Rossi and his ace cameraman Greg Scala from Pennsylvania. Both Joe and Greg found fishing here to be even better than their wildest dreams. Double digit sails, Marlin, Dorado, Tuna and rosters all within the waters close to the lodge. I'd like to also add Joe Rossi is a heck of a chef! Nightly he would add mouth watering dishes to our tables. Our other guests also had great days on the water. John and Patricia Dinardo, Nat Tomlinson, Ed jackson, David Wellner, Gerald and clase Todd, Jeremy Koogler with their host Capt Frank Carbone I hope will all be back soon.

Our New fly fishing addition:

A bit about our new 23' "Unsinkable", Boston Whaler Fly fishing and light tackle boat. This 50 mph specialty boat will be added to our fleet of (3) 35' Deep water sport fishers and our 35' Black fin. We have a great fishery for rooster fish, Pargo and a varity of big snapper here close to the lodge. John Maynard, founder and Captain of Budweiser National Fishing Team20will be taking the helm. John has fished the waters of Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama for many years and specializes in Fly casting and light tackle fishing.

Why not put down the snow shovel, take a break and come see our bit of paradise?
