PANAMA: A “Swell” Day

January 23, 2012

Here’s a fishing report from yesterday from our very own and very handsome Captain LR Hastings…

GOOD MORNING, well the BOYS from Salt Lake are headed home today, we will miss them, although our numbers as far as catching were off a bit, we TRULY enjoyed fishing with them. Both boats fished yesterday and as slow as the fishing was WE BOTH had MARLIN opportunities. Capt Junior jumped one off, and we had a half hearted bite from a BLUE MARLIN, almost didn’t even qualify as a bite, he CRASHED a teaser and Alirio threw a live bonito at him and he kinda did some “victory laps” around the bait, and sorta kinda bit, and then went away. We did also pull off a sailfish late in the day and caught 3 dorados. Things started picking up in the afternoon, might head back to the same spot tomorrow. Hopefully the water will be a “skoash” bluer. Today we have new guests arriving, and will fish inshore, it’s ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS here today, light wind out of the north, I’m SURE it will be a HOT one out there this afternoon. Then tomorrow back at it chasing MARLIN CAN HARDLY WAIT, hopefully the wind will lay out a little more for us. have a SENSATIONAL SUNDAY, and hope YOUR TEAM WINS today…”

Hello all,

The last couple of days have meant big seas and some rough water fishing. The Bell crew did an excellent job on the reels, but the 4 or so Marlin that they managed to raise just won’t hold onto that hook.  They still had a great time and I managed to snap some pics in those rough seas.

Check out the shots!

Morning sunrise before fishing!

Marlin fighting. The marlin just wouldn’t jump!

This blue marlin decided to spit out the hook right at the last minute!

Captain LR heading back home to the Pacific Provider after fighting the good fight out on the ocean.

A nice Blue Marlin. He came up just a little bit, but just barely out of the water.

This marlin had a feeder fish attached to the top of it!

Nice big sailfish for Miles Bell!


In the end the Bell guys with good friend Don Vanhise had a great time despite the big seas!
