Fishing dates are 4/9-4/13. We would have to arrive in Panama City on Saturday 4/7 and would fly home on 4/14/12. The trip is setup with Pesca Panama. I am stuck and about to cancel the trip because I am unable to find any local fishing buddies that have the time or money over the Easter holiday. I was originally going to fish with my father, but he had a massive heart attack and will be recovering from triple bypass surgery. I am easy to get along with and not some weird-o. The goal of the trip is to chase YFTs if they are chewing.

I have fished with Pesca Panama 2x before and they have a great operation. Fish on 28' Ocean Master CC's with 3 guys. Live aboard a decked out barge that has all the comforts of home, great food, and alot of fun. The benefit of the barge is that you are usually within a short trip to the prime fishing grounds when most land based operations have a 2 hour trip before fishing each day!

I need to know if anyone can do the trip ASAP as I am on the verge of canceling. Call me 609-713-6791. The approximate total cost for everything is around $4500pp which includes airfare to Panama, tip, drinks, all meals, hotel stays in Panama city, and flights to and from David.

Andy,

If I did not have my current massive tuition bills (2 kids in private colleges), and had the time available, I would do it in a heartbeat. I know that you have had very good trips down there the past several years.

I hope that it works out for you.

Guys,

Andy is a fishing machine who always puts the time and energy into catching all species of fish. He is also a great guy (as is his Dad) to be on a boat with for an extended period.

Hmmmmmm

Andy, I'm very interested. I've fished Mexico, Costa Rica and Guatemala many times, always wanted to fish Panama. Q. I still need to add black marlin to my billfish total, are they fishing for blacks?

Rick, I will call you tonight after 7.

EC, I have fished Costa rica as well. Panama is far better. They occasionally catch sails and blues, but the mean Blacks are the most prevalent. Avg size is prob over 350#. Generally you slow troll bonita for bait in the middle (and hottest) part of the day --> stand-up 50W!! If you are seriously interested we should talk tonight.
