    Flew down to Pedasi for a couple days of fishing. Planned on doing some inshore popper fishing but a ground swell put a hamper on that plan. We trolled for yellowfin tuna and finally decided to try to catch our first yellowfin on popper. We caught 20+ YFT in the 20-30 lb range. We had a great time and had to leave the fish still biting. Came back to the beach and gave our catch to the townspeople. Also lost a couple of nice dolphin too but they were few and far between.

    I love Pedasi Panama. Fished there many, many times and plan to go back sometime in the future. Thx for the post.

    Did you guys just find a pangero in town or did a hotel/hostel line you guys up.

    I'm not sure what the price is nowadays but I used to pick up a pangero for 60 bucks, buy the fuel and tip him out. Best bang for your buck around. That place got me into saltwater fishing when I lived in Panama. Thx again for the report.

    I went with my go to guy down there, Avidel. Last time i went down it was $60 but its now $80. But split between 2 guys still a great deal. Like you said best bang for your buck.

    Panama by panga=basic fun on a budget. I've fished that part of the Tuna Coast starting in 1996 and there are some really cool skippers there (mostly commercial) using almost all pangas (with big fish ice holds built onto the deck) so comfort is not a priority but the fishing can be great.

    No it wasnt Marcelino's. But then again a lot of the pangas look the same lol. Though I have fished with Marcelino in the past, soft spoken, but a good guide. Be back within the year to target some inshore species.
