    GREETINGS FROM THE TROPICS
    WE HAD A NICE 50/50 SPLIT GROUP OF ANGLERS THIS WEEK. HALF WERE FROM BRAZIL AND THE OTHER HALF WERE FROM THE U.S. Haroldo Paiva Campos, Fabiano De Siqueira Campos, Bruno De Siqueira Campos, Marcelo Bezerra Gonsalez, Andre Barbosa de Oliveira AND MARCOS DA SILVA MENDES ARE ALL FROM BRAZIL. BRUNO HAD FISHED WITH US THE WEEK BEFORE AND HAD BOOKED ANOTHER WEEK OF FISHING SO HE COULD FISH WITH HIS FATHER, BROTHER AND SOME MORE OF THEIR FRIENDS.
    Robert Wattenbarger ,Derik Wattenbarger, Hal Hunter, Vint Varner, Brad Peters and Jeff Thorn WERE OUR ANGLERS FROM THE U.S. VINT AND BRAD HAVE FISHED WITH BEFORE ON SEVERAL OTHER OCCASIONS AND IT WAS GOOD TO HAVE THEM BACK. THEY ARE ALWAYS FULL OF STORIES OF THEIR FISHING AND HUNTING ADVENTURES FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
    THE MAGIC OF MAY
    AW! MY MAGIC MONTH OF MAY HAS RETURNED. I LOOK FORWARD TO MAY'S FISHING AS A CHILD LOOKS FORWARD TO CHRISTMAS. AS AN ANGLER YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT MAY IS GOING TO HOLD IN STORE FOR THE ANGER BUT YOU KNOW IT IS GOING TO BE GOOD!

    TRUMP AND THE TUNA
    FROM MY PERSPECTIVE I DOESN'T LOOK LIKE WE CAN GET AWAY FROM EITHER ONE OF THEM. ONE IS ON THE AIR AND THE OTHER IS IN THE WATER, BUT THEY ARE BOTH ON A FEEDING FRENZY. THE DEEP COBALT BLUE SURROUNDING ISLA MONTUOSA THIS WEEK WAS THE PLACE TO CATCH YELLOWFIN TUNA. THE BRAZILIANS WERE HAVING GOOD LUCK CASTING THEIR POPPERS AND THE GRINGOS WERE GRINDING IT OUT USING LIVE BAIT. THE SIZE OF THE TUNA SEEMED A LITTLE LARGER THAT LAST WEEK'S FISH. WITH MOST OF THE FISH WEIGHTING IN BETWEEN 100 AND 150 LBS. THE LARGEST TUNA WEIGHTED IN AT 200 LBS. TOTAL YELLOWFIN TUNA CAUGHT THIS WEEK WAS 210!

    BLACK MARLIN KICKS ASS ON HANNIBAL BANK
    THE FISHING STORY GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS. CAPTAINS TOMMY'S ANGLER "BASHFUL BOB" DECIDED HE WANTS TO TRY FOR A BLACK MARLIN. SO THEY LIVE BRIDLE A BIG BONITA TO AN 18/0 CIRCLE HOOK AND SLIDE THE BAIT OVER THE SIDE OF THE BOAT. ABOUT THIS TIME A BIG OLE GIRL DECIDES THAT IS JUST WHAT SHE NEEDS FOR BREAKFAST AND CLEARS THE WATER WITH THE BONITA IN HER MOUTH. FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DON'T KNOW BOB HE WORKS BETWEEN BEING A COMMERCIAL CONTRACTOR AND A BULL SHITTER. BUT WHEN THE BLACK MARLIN JUMPED RIGHT BEHIND THE BOAT BOB SAID, "IT HAD TO BE AT LEAST 16 FEET LONG!"

    CAPTAIN TOMMY WAS USING A SHIMANO 50W FRESHLY SPOOLED WITH 100 LB LINE AND A 400 LB LEADER. IF EVERYTHING HELD TOGETHER THIS WAS GOING TO BE SOME FIGHT. THE TWO ANLGERS WERE ALL BUCKLED INTO THEIR STAND-UP FISHING HARNESS'S AND READY TO PUT ON THE HEAT. AFTER 2 1/2 HRS THE BIG GIRL CAME UP AND TOOK ONE LOOK AT THE BOAT TO GET AN IDEA WHO AND HOW MANY ANGLERS SHE WAS GOING TO NEED TO BEAT IN THIS GAME AND AFTER SIZING UP THE SITUATION SHE HEADED STRAIGHT DOWN. NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE DOING IT ALWAYS IS A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE A BACK UP PLAN. SO BOB CALLS IN DERIK AND JEFF TO GIVE THEM A HAND. THE NEW BLOOD MAKES THE BOAT TRANSFER, ADJUST THEIR HARNESS'S AND GET THEIR ASSES HANDED TO THEM. AFTER 8 HR AND 35 MINUTES THE BIG MOTHER WAS STILL JUST SWIMMING AWAY AND REFUSED TO BE TURNED. THE DECISION WAS MADE TO GO TO MAX DRAG AND WIN OR LOSE THE BATTLE. WELL BIG MOMMY WON THIS ONE. HOW BIG, WELL WE WILL NEVER KNOW!

    RAUNCHY ROOSTERFISH
    BOTH HAROLD AND BOB CAUGHT AND RELEASED ROOSTERFISH ESTIMATED IN THE 75 LB RANGE WHILE FISHING NEAR PUNTA HERMOSA AND PUNTA ALDALARDA. SEVERAL OTHER SMALLER ROOSTERFISH WERE ALSO CAUGHT THIS WEEK. SEE I TOLD YOU MAY CAN BRING SOME MAGIC TO YOUR FISHING.

    HOPE YOU CAN GET A DATE BOOKED TO COME FISHING WITH US NEXT YEAR. MAY IS ALWAYS MAGIC. THANKS TO ALL OF THIS WEEKS ANGLERS FOR CHOOSING TO FISHING WITH PESCA PANAMA. WE ALL HAD A GREAT TIME.

    TIGHT LINES,
    CAPTAIN JAY GUSTIN & RICKY Z
