Four day trip out of Boca Chica starting January 9th. Caught numerous species including 1 for 2 on marlin, seven Cuberas, many mullet snappers, couple of AJs, rainbow runners, one wahoo, many dorados and a couple sailfish shots but no hook up. Surprise of the trip was a 10 foot bull shark brought to the boat. Also a couple a small yft perfect for sashimi and other bottom fish. Captain Luis and mate Christian were a fantasic team!

Primarily fished Montuosa early and then moved to bottom fishing in the afternoon. Last day was inshore around Ladrones. Saw very few boats out. One of the other angling groups had a great day with a couple of marlin and sails plus dorados. One of their marlin estimated at 550#.

Fished with ComeFishPanama and lodged at Bocas del Mar resort.

Great place to stay and great fishing operation for a very reasonable price
Did that trip with ComeFishPanama last year in April and I’m heading back down again this year in April

The owner Kerry is a great guy and the lodging at Bocas Del Mar is fantastic

Congrats on your trip, quality and quantity!
Weird irony: just talked to Kerry today for the first time, as he had a somewhat out of the way
booth at the Sacramento ISE show. He was very personable.

Capt. Luis & Christian rock! Hope you tipped them well. Christian is the hardest working mate ever!

Agreed. Christian was in motion the whole time for all four days. Both were fun to fish with! Capt. Luis kept us on fish and they were a really great team. Both show a lot of passion! When we hooked our second shark, I was too tired to bring it in and it was a pleasure watching Luis fight it to the boat.

What would you consider a good tip for four days?
