Panama Chicken Dance

May 12, 2011

Panama Update: Roosters were on the docket in the boat, roast chicken on the dinner menu tonight…throw in Mike’s chicken dance to get the mojo going and lets start today’s adventure.

It started with Chris, his deckhands and a few Esmoraldan’s catching the bait this morning at 4 am…they were sucessfull…

They caught the bait in the surf in dugout canoes with small lines attached to their toes…we got all the bait in the tuna tubes while Mike made sure they didn’t jump out…

…each one of those could be a rooster so hold em in there Mike…or at least until Alirio puts a net over them.

Loaded up we left just after 6am to the mainland which is more mountainous than Las Perlas and covered with lush virigin jungle. It’s like first contact out here and I was enthralled by the sounds, shapes and colours of this untouched ecosystem, we are really in the middle of nowhere…

We passed a couple of river valleys that I daydreamed about venturing up into “the heart of darkness” to find some lost indigenous tribes…

…it had a very different feel from up north…and we did come across some small indiginous coastal villages…

I’d love to come and visit some of these another time…now back to fishing…

Arilio hooked up the little skipjacks the same way he did the tuna; needle through the nose, tie in a circle hook and send the little sucker out to swim. He strung one on the outrigger and one on a downrigger…

We hit a number of rock piles, beaches and points before Mike layed into something nice…

The first WCFC Panama Rooster CAUGHT AND RELEASED…

…great fish Mike! Once we found the fish we kept working the same shoreline and continued hooking fish with some consistency for the rest of the day. Here’s Ken with a fine specimen…

Then things heated up…

that looks BIG!

The result…happy Mike with a 40+ lber…

By the end of the day we had 4 different species to the boat and a good amount of action…

Dorado, Corvina, Roosters and Spanish Mackrell.

Tomorrow its back to Marlin and some snapper in the afternoon.

Cock a doodle doo…
