We got back to main Panama Sport Fishing Lodge after fishing 5 days on the mothership.
It was huge success. We tagged 124 tuna and we even released 180 lb tuna.
Everybody is happy. We are looking forward to next year's trip.
I will post detailed report and pictures.

I arrived home. It is not easy to organize 10 anglers, but everything went smoothly.
All want to fish Panama again next year

Popping tuna is the name of the game in Panama,
Unlike 2019, there were few tuna foaming. But we managed to catch tuna on poppers,

One boat fished cubera snapper a few hours and they were rewarded with two nice cubera while breaking-off many.

We tagged 125 tuna. That is a lot considering there were very few tuna foaming on this trip unlike in 2019.

You never know what to expect next in Panama. While Fred reeled in 40 lb tuna to the surface, huge blue marlin estimated 700 lb - 800 lb showed up and tried to eat the tuna. Capt Carlos hurriedly set up marlin rig. He put the tuna on the hook of marlin rod and threw the tuna into the water. Then marlin ate it. Capt Carlos ran the boat hard to set the hook. Marlin was on ! It jumped twice and unfortunately broke the line.
It would have been fantastic fight if the line didn't break.
