Just came back from a "bucket list" first time trip to Panama where we wrecked yellowfin tuna on big poppers. I'm a bass writer by trade, obsessed with the topwater game, and this beat anything I've ever seen or tried. I've been to the Amazon three times and I thought peacock bass on a woodchopper were the ultimate, but this blows them away.

Already trying to figure out a way to get back. If you're in good shape and love topwater action, this is something you can't miss.

We're going back in November. I believe there are one or two spots left on the trip -- if anyone wants in, shoot me a message.

Panama the "country" or Panama City, FL? Nice fish for sure either way!!

This is a late post, but was curious where these were caught.

Good luck on your trip.

We are leaving on the 7th on the Scat Cat for 56 hours of fishing. We target Yellowfin but usually get to go after some bottom fish. Top water bites are special.
