Feliz ano neuvo 2010 Golfito style

Arrived at the rivermouth at dead low.Anchored up in 3 feet of muddy,brackish water along a 30′ dropoff..Casted out the Sand Key pilchard sized live herring on circles and drifted them Key West style.As the tide turned we had 3 strikes in 30 minutes with 2 25 lbs. class Pacific black snook and an ass kicking cubera…….Let’s go Rooster fishing,It’s only 9:30

Banco Hannibal 12/23/09

First suprise was a 50 lbs.class Cubera Snapper.Mean fish that took the spinning road around the boat a few times.Next morning while running the planners with the clark’s looking for livebait,a 100 lbs.Pacific Sail ate it and we had our first of many…..This area of Panama is so pristine because it is so difficult to get too and no marinas or provisions.Our third trip to the area and again saw not another boat.Thumper has Feb and March trips booked.Caught my first Black on the banko in 07.Google Banko Hannibal Panama for video

Marlin aren’t the only thing eating #20 circles at Pinas Bay

Thumper visited our friends at Tropic Star on Dec 19,20.At daybreak we stopped at Zane Grey Reef to fill the tuna tubes.As we approached the acres of thrashing bonito I observed huge fish flying out of the sea feeding on them.From experience I initially assumed they were spinning dolphins or some variation.But no..as we approached I realized they were 200 lbs.class yellowfins.Pass the Wasabi and soy por favor.
