Panama: What Rhymes with “Darlin”?May 25, 2011
I was on the phone having a heated discussion about Panamanian bureaucracy when Lindsay came tearing up the stairs and plunked this note down in front of me…
Well, I got off the phone pretty fast.
First official marlin of WCFC Panama since our grand opening here just a short two weeks ago!! Congratulations to guests Mikell and Dick along with Captain Miguel and Mate Tiberio.
Here is a photo…just before being safely released by Mikell and Dick…
During the 1 hour fight…here is Dick. No time to yodell now!
Portrait of the men who caught it (photo taken later during a post-fishing dip in the ocean)…

You’re part of our history now, farmers from Enumclaw!
Meanwhile, Gary “Papa Bear” Sells and Bob were doing pretty well themselves. Here’s Alexis and Donar helping Gary out with this 80 lb rooster…
I’m not sure who’s having more fun here! Lots of big tuna, dorados and bonito make this another excellent day of fishing.
Here are the original gangsters – Captain Alexis, Papa Bear, and Mate Donar.
On their way in…Bob and Gary are heading straight for the cocktail bar…
with a stop for a dip first…the Three Bears!
Laurie, your dad says this one’s for you…”Lulu, you missed out!”
