We started off with a group coming to us from Germany: blue marlin, black marlin, sailfish, yellow fin tuna, 1 over 250 lbs., cuberra snapper, rock snapper, yellow snapper, mullet snapper, wahoo, amber jack and dorado – was about as good as it can get. The next group only had 1 full day off shore and got 2 large yellow fin tunas, 1 over 100 lbs. and 1 over 200 lbs. The last week was a little slow – in shore okay but finished up with double digit both in numbers and weight of dorado – very rare for March and a black marlin around 700 lbs. The water temp and quality has been good all Month and is looking good heading into April – which is always one of the best months to fish here. Otze and Troy both caught their first Black Marlin here this month – for Otze it was the last bill fish he needed-around 400 lbs.- to have them all – Congratulations!!! Troy it was one of the bigger Marlins he has caught – around 700lbs.- and after 47 blues lifetime he was due for a black -Congratulations!!
Captain Lee Campbell – Panama Big Game Fishing Club
Hello Lee, Jorge, Totschy, Otze and I are back in Germany after a 32 hour-trip. At last we had a problem with the suitcase of Totschy, because it got lost. Very annoying is that his camera was in the suitcase with a lot of nice photos. We hope that the suitcase will be located and send back to Totschys home address. We all thank you for the first class service we enjoyed, the very-very-very good food and the excellent drinks and the great fishing. It was wonderful ! I never caught so many big-game fishes before and the 250 pound yellow fin tuna on last Friday was a fantastic closing. Enclosed for today now some photos of the yellow fin tuna I caught. The other photos of our fishing trip – the blue and the black marlin and especially of the “nice hair” in the fighting chair I’ll send you with my next mail. Hope you are fit as a fiddle and wish you much Petri Heil !!! Best wishes to all !!! Your friend Yogi
