Panama: Marlin, Turtles and Boobies!May 5, 2012
Today was another amazing day out there on the water. Coiba is truly an amazing place. The Marlin here are HUGE! Today all boats raised a couple of Marlin and everyone managed to also bring one in to the side of the boat. So over all a good day for all.
Check out some of the pic’s from today:
Today on Jose’s boat we raised 2 Marlin and caught 1. This guy came up and tasted our bait before spitting it out at us and taking off.
Captain Donar does it again and hooks into a beautiful big black Marlin. Angler Rodrigo was the lucky man on the reel!
The massive fish put on an amazing show!
Jose managed to find Angler Brad another nice fish for the day. We actually had a double header on the line. Joe and Brad fought both of the fish together until Joe’s spat the bait back, but luckily Brads continued to fight and we got him all the way to the boat!
Brad’s nice Marlin!
I only managed to snap one shot of Brad’s Marlin underwater. He was a big boy!
Mate Andres, Captain Jose and Angler Brad, celebrate Brads 3rd Marlin of the trip!
Our friends on the “Hooker” had a great day out on the water too. Captain Wade found his guest a couple of nice fish. Here is a shot of their Blue Marlin dancing in front of our San Miguel.
The “Hookers” nice blue Marlin.
Boys on the “Hooker” working hard!
This fish just wouldn’t stop jumping!
Captain Jr. found guest Dave a nice fish to fight with.
Manager Elliot was out on the water today, doing his part to save the world. He found a turtle that was caught in a netting of some sort. So Elliot managed to hook onto the net and free the little guy.
…but not with out a quick photo opp!
Elliot is setting the little guy free!
We have Boobies flying around us all day. Today I managed to snap a nice picture of one as he was cruising along the water surface.
What more can be said about Coiba. This place is truly amazing. Never have I ever seen such an amazing bite for such massive Marlin before!
Hope tomorrow brings more stories and photo’s!
