Fishing in Panama with Help from Experts

Panama has quickly become one of the most sought after destinations for travelers. It’s great for those who want to experience the rich history of this country and the world-renowned fishing it offers.

Unlike other popular fishing destinations that get all the TV time or publications, Panama still provides that off-the-beaten-track fishing experience with all the modern amenities any avid angler would enjoy.

The Road Less Traveled: Authentic Panama Fishing Vacations

The main difference between Panama and some of the other well-known offshore fishing destinations in Central America is the lack of marinas in key areas of the country.

If you fly into Panama City, there is a number of marinas to choose from. When looking at the topography maps of Panama and the city itself, you can see that runs from the city to the offshore fishing grounds are quite long.

In contrast, the North and South tips of the Pacific coast of Panama have some amazing areas, which are just minutes from the continental shelf. This ledge is where you will find all the major pelagics and the most abundant fishery.

Due to these more remote locations, once you are in the country there is quite a bit of traveling involved. The reward is that there are great options for local lodges and hotels which can access the best fisheries.

Main Fishing Areas in Panama

Offering inshore, offshore, and freshwater fishing, the following are the key fishing areas in Panama:

  • Panama City: Panama Canal and Lake Gatun
  • Chiriqui: Coiba Island and the Gulf of Chiriqui

With help from expert anglers, you can get a vacation that takes you to these destinations.

Fishing Lodges in the North of Panama

For the ultimate angler, the lodge setting is hard to beat. Paradise Fishing Lodges is located in the Chiriqui province and offers world-class fishing around the famed Coiba Island as well as the Hannibal Bank.

If you are looking for incredible inshore action targeting Cubera Snapper, Roosterfish, Blue Eyed Trevally, and other species, this is the place to go.

Or head offshore and target monster Yellowfin Tuna as well as Sailfish, giant black Marlin, Dorado, and blue Marlin.

Southern Gems to Escape from the World

To the South of Panama, Tropic Star is your best bet. Known as one of the most famous fishing lodges in the world, this hotel is the place for Black Marlin.

The Zane Gray reef offers some of the most consistent black Marlin fishing found anywhere in the world without having to cross the globe to Australia. They have all the other species found in almost every part of Central America as well.

In addition to the great offshore and inshore trips that take place in Panama, there is also a lesser-known fishery for Peacock Bass, Tarpon, and Snook.

Lake Gatun, Panama Canal, and the Bayano Lake have some of the finest light tackle freshwater and brackish water in the area.

If you are looking to do something unique, check out the Panama Canal and Lake Gatun fishery. Here you can spend a day or half-day fishing for hard-fighting Peacock Bass as well as Snook and small Tarpon.

The experience is fun, with limitless action, and the view is what sets it apart from others. Just imagine fighting a feisty Peacock Bass on light tackle while watching a ship traverse the canal at the same time.

This makes for a pretty wild memory even for the angler who has done it all.
