Fly Reel

Mate Martin on Black Marlin caught on fly reel

To start the first week of February off we had returning anglers McKee group out of Canada and returning husband and wife team Tony and Nancy Kirkpatrick from Arizona.

Blue Water Conditions

Throughout the first half of the month we had clear blue skies along with crystal blue water and continuous swells around 2-4 feet. During the mornings we had variable winds coming out of the NW at 4 to 8 knots and our ride home was a bit calmer with smooth seas and winds out of the South. Just about perfect conditions any avid angler would say!

February we had anglers looking to target Marlin, Pacific Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi-Mahi, Roosterfish and other species giving us a whole bunch of options. Billfish and Yellowfin Tuna were the most requested pelagic species each group was interested in, so we focused our attention to ensure locating them and have these anglers fight them during their trip. The McKee group were all about catching species on Fly Reel and we were more than happy to put them on Marlin, Dorado, Amberjack aka Reef Donkey, Snappers you name it- it all was reeled in on fly reel for these guys.

The Yellowfin Tuna did continue to show up off the Chiriqui coast just south of Isla Montuosa where we located them 3-5 miles off the island. We managed to hit the jackpot on both Yellowfin and Billfish plus many others as well. We must say the bite has continued really strong starting the new month which has provided lots of rod bending action. We threw poppers, dropped jigs down, tossed Blue Runners, even used bullet Bonito the Yellowfin Tuna

would hunt down. Every reel would just scream with the line peeling out and the anglers would just hold on tight until it was their turn to apply the action they came for with Come Fish Panama. Both groups got a taste of slamming the Billfish and Yellowfin Tuna along with other species which include Dorado/Mahi-Mahi, Amberjack, Barred Snapper, Big Inshore Needlefish, Mullet Snapper, Cubera Snapper, Bluefin Trevally, Jack Crevalle just to name a few. The Kirkpatrick group had the honor this year to supply the local village’s just out side of town with plenty of Yellowfin Tuna. We provide this service 3 times a year so that each village is feed fresh fish on behalf of Come Fish Panama. We look forward to extending this program next year to other villages around the Chiriqui Region of Panama.

We would like to congratulate Michael McKee for catching a 300 Pd. Black Marlin on Fly Reel along Kirkpatrick group who landed Yellowfin Tuna and Pacific Sailfish all in a day’s work.
