    Offshore 7 April BFT Limits for the Polaris Supreme

    It sounds like its definitely in 1 day range because they fished into the dark on a night bite so the drive back may have not been too long if they had time to do that, or they came in late, which is very possible early season. On a 1 day, you may get that grey light bite in the morning but...

    Anyone use East Cape Smokehouse recently?

    mine is in Panama but its probably 18x 8x 4 and 5 lb. The good thing about them is the consecutive seals without having to let it rest. We get a whole production line going and knock it out quick. I like to pat the fish dry with a paper towel. It seals better. They are great little machines.

    Anyone use East Cape Smokehouse recently?

    Another option if you dont mind doing it yourself is get the Gamesaver wingman, their presealed quart bags, and a 48 can soft AO cooler (or a 40 quart hard cooler). Find an air bnb with a chest freezer. The gamesaver wingman is small and lightweight, and can do 100 consecutive seals without...

    East Cape Rancho Leonero Or Palmas De Cortez East Cape much nicer than Cabo. Fly into Same airport just different directions. Little town of Los Barrilles is super quiet but safe. Both resorts are fishing resprts on the water with nice pools, etc. Great food, great fishing, great safe beaches...

    Panama opinions

    Hotel Playa Cambutal can hook u up with a panga too. $200 I think. Should be good wahoo in April from what I have heard. Tony knows more than anyone seeing how he named it lol.
  516. pascuale

    Panama opinions

    It depends on where you are fishing as well. The Tuna Coast gets very strong offshore winds during Dec-April but the Gulf of Chiriqui does not.
