As usual... Another adventure we all can dream of. Love your detailed posts. Pulling on BIG tuna is work. Not like pulling on Turd rollers in the rubber ducky haha. Just playing.
Thanks for sharing Cory!

Nice report Cory! Congratulation to you and Jeff, and glad you got your hands on those mean Bluefin....
I recognize Jeff in the photo. I had a chance fishing with him and his son on a 2-day trip with First String last October. Please say "hello" to Jeff.

Hello Back, Not sure who your are, but my son and I had a great time on the that boat last year!

Congrats!!!! Finally got the bluefin youve been looking for! Fish of a lifetime!

Not sure I want to tangle with a 200+, as this guy was tough enough on the right gear, thank goodness! Never would of got him on lighter gear, like 60, I don't think even 80? Would of taken a long long time if so?

All the best Billy.

Awesome report sweet double.
I had an 8 hour layover st PTY a few months ago. I wanted to take a tour if the city or see the canal, but was escorting my mother in law to Brazil. Between her age and medical condition, and the language I opted out. (I speak English, very little Portuguese, and even less Spanish. She only speaks Portuguese).
After reading about your trip, I will definitely take a couple days to explore and relax next time I fly through there.

Great report as always. Nice fish
The RUi in north CR is great they have two hotels next to each other with a casino between them the Palace is much better and only $20.00 more. Best food in an All inclusive that I've had. And a stocked bar w/ mid grade booze in the room!!!

Wow! Nice BFT and great report! Looks like you guys are having fun. Too bad you didn't get to experience the fishing here in Panama...it's the best part!

If you ever get the chance to make it back here to Panama....check out the Chiriquí providence over here far from the touristy parts near Panama City. Spots like the mountain towns of Boquete and Volcan, coastal village of Boca Chica, islands in the Gulf of Chiriquí, and the Volcan Baru National Park. You and the wife will for sure love it here!

Could I have gotten to your area from the RIU?

Bummer Grump, well the worst is over hopefully and you will pull on some fish soon. Let me know if you want some company?

Killer tuna catching. Good for you guys.

Panama looks awesome. Seeing the canal is a bucket list item for me.
