Panama: Lovin’ the Marlin!January 28, 2012
I know it is not very nice to tell you how spectacular the weather is here – perfect, steady 23 degrees, sunny, blue skies, white sand beaches, palm trees swaying in the soft tropical breezes while you hear the hum of the blender making your piña colada…
So how’s the weather where you are? In the minus range yet? Ice? Snow? Still dark when you head to work? Sorry about that. Hee hee.
GET DOWN HERE AND GET FIIIIIIISHING!!
This is one of the prime months for fishing of the year, though I will say that we have had so many insane months here for fishing so far – January has some competition for the best month!! Waters around here have been busy lately with lots our regulars coming out from Panama City and beyond to join in the billfish frenzy.
Despite a slow-ish few days for live bait (bait balls are literally everywhere, but the little buggers just don’t want to bite) and some rough waters, fishing has been delivering some excitement for our anglers.
We have three groups fishing with us this week and a very full house with some of our best regulars in for dinner at the “Best Restaurant in Panama”. The Cloud, Pessoa, and Groth groups have all seen lots of action including marlin, sails, and lots of dorado and other inshore species in the last two days.
I don’t know how we are going to recover from the luxury of having the fantasmical Jessica Haydahl with us – her style is incredible and we are so spoiled to have her with us. This is Jess’ last trip – and she has been a real trooper riding the waves every day for the last month in her quest for what she calls “THE EPIC MARLIN SHOT”.
Here is a small sampling from yesterday – stay tuned for video footage and other EPIC SHOTS later today.
Jess took these photos today on the Abundancia with Captain LR and the Paulo Pessoa group.
Goodnight from Paradise,
