We had very good inshore fishing all month, rooster fish, cubera snapper, mullet snapper, amber jack, broom tail grouper, blue jack and wahoo. The off shore was a little slow the first of the month but yellow fin tuna and marlin came on strong. Allot of yellow fin tuna over 200 lb. with 5 yellow fin between 125lb. and 250lb. caught on surface poppers with spinning tackle. Black Marlin -1 at 800lb. and Blue Marlin – with 4 in one day – came on strong the last half of the month. We have blue marlin, black marlin and yellow fin tuna over 200lb. – caught on spinning tackle including the strike-on film. Trevor Gowdy was filming here the last week – targeting large yellow fin on spinning tackle and marlin – and also had a pretty good day fishing the river just a short distance from our Resort with the highlight a 45 lb. Corvina. As usual April was one of the best fishing months – start of wahoo, strong Black and Blue Marlin with yellow fin tuna being the highlight – always the best month for yellow fin over 200lb.
Captain Lee Campbell – Panama Big Game Fishing Club
I want to thank both you and your staff for a wonderful fishing trip. You operate a first class lodge. Everything was great from the time I stepped off the plane in Panama City and met by your representative, to the time I stepped back on the plane at the end of the week. The food was excellent, even though there was too much to eat. The open bar was a pleasant treat. It was all the little details that you and your staff pay attention too that made the trip so enjoyable. I would also like to compliment you on your selective harvest program that you encourage to your guests as well as your staff. I’ve always been in favor of keeping a couple of fish to bring home to eat, and releasing the rest so that they can be caught again in the future either by me or a guest. Enclosed are some pictures of only some of the fish I caught. I look forward to coming down and fishing again next year. I hope that my brother will be able to join me. Thanks again, Larry Little
Lee, Thanks so much for the kind hospitality and the great fishing! An experience I will never forget. All the best, Evan.
