Not a Washington waters report - but since I'm from WA. Our Panama trip got canx, so we jumped on a trip that was recommended by a friend. It didn't disappoint! I've fished a few times out of LaPaz but my first time in Los Barriles. Wasn't sure what to expect but loaded up the Terez rods and FinNor Reels for the trip south. It was simply amazing! We avoided the larger hotels and stayed at a place north of town, at the hotel owned by Ms Patti - Hotel Los Pescadores. Hotel was great, rooms cold, excellent staff, beer and drinks frosty, pool wet, and overall a super relaxing-quiet place to hang out. Boats (26ft Super Pangas) were on trailers and picked us up right at the front door for a quick 1/2 mile to the beach to launch. Our Captains were awesome in all regards. I think one - Lavo actually spoke Porpoise as he was always on fish first and called all other captains in every day. We caught Yellowfin, one after another for the majority of the days. We (4 of us) fished a total of 8 days straight. Learned some stuff they do there, not sure it will apply to Albies, but will give it a try in near future this summer. Got some decent YF, a few close to 40, but most 17-20lbs. My goals were a blue phased Dorado, a 50+ Rooster fish, piles of meat and a decent Stripped Marlin. 3 out of 4 wasn't bad. Over the years I've gotten hundreds of Dorado but never got one that turned blue. Finally got that checked off. Roosters - well hardly got close to my goal weight but we did get a few here and there. I lost one beast of a Bull Dorado - right at the boat, no doubt the thing was over 50lbs easily... Hook simply popped out.. Auuuugh! Got a nice Marlin as did each of us, so that was pretty cool. Ran a couple days north towards LaPaz and fished the shark buoys for Dorado, Fished the beaches a day for African Pompeo and Roosters, AP are delicious - blackened! Mmmmm! If you want to get away to a relaxing place, where the food in the community is incredible, area super safe, I would recommend it in a heartbeat. To get even better service (hotel, food, service) and fish with the best couple captains in Los Barriles I would recommend Hotel Los Pescadores, Hotel has 10 rooms, Patti (the owner) is an amazing lady that works her butt off. Give me a shout and I can get her number for you. Trip is in the books and I just rescheduled another for end of July for Wahoo and Dorado, heck who knows, pretty cheap to build there at $87sqft, so maybe..............

Marlin was gut hooked and not going to make it so the fish was donated to our Captain..

    How’d you handle those rough conditions??? Looks like an awesome trip. That’s a pretty cool little town. I’d go back too.

    Cut an opening in a part of the boat and slap in a plexiglass front, seal it with 3M and call it good!

    Yeah Trumpet fish. Fast as heck, destroyed a lot of stuff while we casting to some Dorado at the shark buoys. Try taking a hook out if one, their like the wiggle exercise thing of the past!
