Our boats and tackle

Our fleet of sport fishing boats is the finest in the area, all but two are twin diesel in-boards, which gives us an advantage in attracting billfish. They are equipped with the very best tackle; reels and rods, every boat has outriggers, down riggers, live bait well, tuna tubes and fighting chair (apart from Rattlesnail and Bruce’s Sea Gal) GPS, Fish Finder, a set of custom lures and custom teasers, fire extinguishers and first aid kits. Read more about the lures and tackle.

The cabins are comfortably furnished for the 90-minute journey to and from the fishing grounds, with beanbags for a nap, and of course plenty of refreshments, snacks and a gourmet packed lunch.

In addition we have two outboard boats; the Rattlesnail has twin Verado 275Hp 4 stroke outboards, and Bruce’s Sea Gal has twin Suzuki 150Hp 4 Stroke outboards.

All of our boats are equipped with re-chipped super high power VHF radios and are in contact with each other (helping each other out as to where the bait is and where the fish are biting) and the Panama Big Game Club at all times.
