We had 15 groups fishing this Feb and March with 31 Marlin caught - 28 Blacks and 3 Blues. Only 3 groups did not catch at least 1 marlin and two had shots. So in both months only 1 group did not have at least a shot at a marlin. Tuna was also good - not what it usually is but still okay with 4 yellow fin caught over 200 lb but most fish between 20 and 100lb. Middle of February was a little slow with over all action but all groups caught at least 1 marlin. Snapper, rooster fish, amber jacks and sails finished out the catch. There is cold water south of us in Panama Bay and hot water just this side of the Costa Rica border so for the last 3 weeks the Marlin fishing around La Drones has been excellent. All conditions look very good here heading into April. Capt. Lee

Hi Lee,
Hats off to you and your staff at Panama Big Game Fishing Club. I must say that you run a first class operation from the moment we arrived in Panama City to the moment we left for home. he weather on our first day of fishing was kind of unseasonable, but we still managed to catch a sailfish and a black marlin. The next two days proved to be perfect conditions. I would say for 3 days fishing, taking a total of 3 Black Marlin, one estimated at over 500 lbs, 3 Sailfish, and numerous other snapper, etc. we had an excellent trip. I am planning our next trip in the very near future. We all decided that this needs to be an annual event. Again, Thanks to you, Rolando and staff, Tati, Jumbo, and Juan for all their hard work to make our experience a pleasurable one. Warmest Regards, Bill Hebebrand

Hi Lee,
Everyone had a great time, thanks for the great food. The fish got home with no problem, never got opened at any airport. I figured they would open it in Houston for sure. I will be in touch. Thanks so much, Gary Lueb
