Panama: CelebrationNovember 20, 2011
I would like to begin tonight by formally welcoming our new ship’s captain, LR Hastings to our WCFC Panama family.
I am – as LR would say – TICKLED – that he has chosen to join us here in Paradise. Captain Hastings brings years of sportfishing experience with him and will be an integral part of our fishing programme here. I am thrilled to have him here by my side with his crazy southern sense of humor. Welcome to the team Captain Hastings!
Before moving on to the fish tales du jour, I wanted to share this lovely thank you note from the Levy family (of the 700 lb marlin a few days ago!)

I would like to wish our guest Ernst (re-named ERNESTO by our crew) a very, very, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Ernst celebrated his 60th birthday with a nap…
A MARLIN!! A nice 250 lb black…I will post some video tomorrow.
After this taste of billfish, the guys reel in two nice sailfish. It’s been a while since we have seen the sails in our neighborhood – we are excited to have spotted some around the last few weeks and hope to see lots of them moving in closer over the next month!!
Goodnight from Paradise,
