After an amazing first week at the Panafishing lodge, things started slowly for the second group: very few fish and no big ones for the first 2 days. The action got much better towards the end, and although the numbers were not impressive, the big ones were definitly out there !


The first boat was not the most lucky one. 3 big cuberas and one big rooster were lost and could have make a huge difference, but the lack of experience and some broken popper played against them. A big amberjack was caught on popper but the rod broke in the first seconds of the fight, due to a "cubera drag". The fish was boated nevertheless but it's a shame for the nice fight it could have been.

Some good fish were taken despite all the bad luck, including 2 nice roosters for Andreas:













Good amberjack on topwater:

Thanks for the nice report Pierre. We are headed there in May. Cebaco to be precise. Kinda excited! What size gear were you using or should I ask what we should bring? Would appreciate some recommendations for that as well as type of lures to take along. We'll be doing quite a bit of inshore as well and Hannibal Banks weather permitting. Thanks in advance!
