    The timing for me was not good, but I felt the same way, not a trip to turn down - maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity although I do hope to go back one day.

    I am pretty sure the smelly grouper is a leather back or leather bass, but I am only going from other pics that I have seen. Looks much larger than other specimens I have seen

    Its a very well camouflaged fish and very interesting - never seen one caught before

    Camera doesn't show it very well but the tips of the fins are Yellow just the last 1/8"

    this places says it's a leatherback grouper http://www.pelagicgear.com/blog/arti...erback-grouper

    looks like an amazing trip!

    Thanks Ryan - it was a very special trip even if we didn't catch a thing it was an experience and our hosts where extremely solid, good guys to fish with. Favo is on the Aftco Pro Staff and I know he submitted the photo for their use in promotion, apparently a very nice sized on and as the article you linked to, they are very rare. These guys have been fishing this year for years and years and never caught one - it was his first!

    A rare catch, the Leatherback Grouper (AKA Leatherback Cabrilla) like its habitat on the rugged side. Mostly found near rocky reefs and areas near the base of rocky faces, this fish inhabits the tropic and sub-tropical waters ranging from the Pacific's Sea of Cortez to Ecuador - however, it is most ubundant at offshore volcanic islands, such as Mexico's Revillagigdos Archipelago. Adults have a distinct color pattern of white and dark blotches and spots on a usually dark skin color, depending on its home surroundings.

    What a cool trip so jealous! Never saw one of those leatherbacks before neat fish. I think the jacks you were catching are Almaco jacks,the amico looks like a giant lookdown.

    Yes I was told I'm misspelling it Almaco is the name of the Jacks. Powerful fighters and surprisingly good eating! It was a very good trip, I seem to bring good luck with me whenever I go to Panama (yes I'm knocking on wood). I have four spots left for our Annual Spring trip to Panama if you can swing it, go - heck of a lot of fishing for $3200/PP with the cost of fuel and spare parts it goes up every year uhf.

    No problem, there is always next year. In 2015 we plan to run two trips of the same length: One focused on Tuna popping and one at a different time of the year to target exotics.

    we actually caught another one, a bit smaller, much farther North in the Gulf of Chirique last year. Can't wait to get back, 35 days and counting!
