Fishing Report - 03/13/15

I’ve been working with our young mothership captain, Jaime Bernal, for awhile now.  He was expertly trained in ship steerage, handling, anchoring, and docking by Jay Gustin, and does a safe and excellent job.  The report below is 90% Jaime’s creation.  He’s coming along.  Capt Mike Augat
 
TOP WATER FISHING HERE AT THE COIBA ISLAND REGION IS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING INSHORE FISHERIES ON THE PLANET.  OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS WE HAVE LEARNED IT IS NOT ONLY AN EFFECTIVE INSHORE TECHNIQUE, BUT WE HAVE ALSO SEEN SOME VERY EXCITING OFFSHORE CATCHES USING SPINNING TACKLE AND POPPERS.  THIS WEEK WE HAD SOME SPECTACULAR CATCHES ON POPPERS AS WELL AS JIGGING.

BLUE SKY AND CALM SEAS GREETED OUR ANGLERS THIS WEEK.  WE HOSTED A TALENTED GROUP OF ANGLERS FROM BRAZIL;  IN THE LINE UP, LEAD MAN OLIVO NETO, CHRISTIAN KELETI, LUIZ PAPA, RICARDO SARMENTO, ANDRE PIEDADE, VICTOR RUSSO, EDUARDO DE CASTRO, AND PAULO BARRETO.  OUR ANGLERS FROM BRAZIL ENJOYED CATCHING A BIG MIXED BAG OF FISH THIS WEEK.  ON THEIR FIRST DAY OF FISHING THEY CAUGHT  AMBERJACK, AFRICAN POMPANO, YELLOW SNAPPER, SPOTTED GROUPER AND YELLOWFIN TUNA.

EARLY IN THE WEEK WE HAD A COUPLE OF WINDY DAYS, BUT THE WEATHER CLEARED AND THE CAPTAINS LOADED THE BRAZILIAN BOYS AND WERE BOUND FOR THE GAME.  THEIR EFFORTS PAID OFF AND THE BOATS CAUGHT AND RELEASED MANY SILK SNAPPERS PLUS NICE CUBERA SNAPPER ALONG WITH FORTUNE JACK, GOLDEN JACK, ROCK SNAPPER, BARRACUDA,  A COUPLE OF AMBERJACK, AND A LARGE AFRICAN POMPANO. NOW THIS IS WHAT I WOULD CALL A MIXED BAG.

ONE HIGHLIGHT OF MANY THIS WEEK CAME WHEN CHRISTIAN HAD A SPECTACULAR ENCOUNTER WITH A YELLOWFIN TUNA ON HIS POPPER.  AFTER MAKING A CAST INTO A SMALL SCHOOL OF YELLOWFIN, ONE OF THE TUNA CRASHED AND DEMOLISHED HIS POPPER AND THE FIGHT WAS ON.  AFTER A LONG GRUELING BATTLE ON SPINNING TACKLE A SPENT CHRISTIAN WAS SUCCESSFUL IN GETTING A 100LB CLASS YELLOWFIN TO THE BOAT.  THE GROUP WAS BUSY THIS WEEK SHOWING THE CAPTAINS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THEIR JIGGING TECHNIQUES.  MANY HAVE TRAVELED WORLDWIDE FOR JIGGING OPPORTUNITES, EDUARDO HAS COMPETED ACROSS THE GLOBE IN MARLIN TOURNAMENTS VERY SUCCESSFULLY, AND THE GEAR THEY BROUGHT WAS TECHNIQUE SPECIFIC.  THESE GUYS WERE FUN TO WATCH FISH ALL DAY, EAT HEARTILY, AND SLEEP LIKE THEY’D BEEN DRUGGED, ONLY TO DO IT AGAIN THE NEXT DAY.  THEY WERE HOOKING UP ON FISH JUST ABOUT EVERY TIME THE CAPTAINS WOULD MARK FISH ON THE DEPTH FINDERS AT OUR 15 YEAR SELECTION OF CHARTED PEAKS AND ROCKPILES.  ALONG WITH A WHOLE HOST OF OTHER SPECIES CAUGHT, THEY BROUGHT TO THE SURFACE SOME OF THE MOST BRILLIANT COLORED RED SNAPPER AND MANY, MANY ALMACO JACKS WHEN NOT BEING ABUSED BY HEAVILY FEEDING SURFACE TUNA.  WE AT PESCA PANAMA HAPPILY HOST EVERY LEVEL OF ANGLER, TEACH, SHARE, AND SOMETIMES LEARN.  WE WENT TO JIGGING SCHOOL WITH THESE GUYS, WONDERFUL GENTS ALL.  CANNOT WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL AGAIN NEXT YEAR.  GREAT FUN, GREAT TRIP- THANKS TO ALL FROM THE ENTIRE PESCA PANAMA FAMILY, SPECIAL THANKS TO OLIVO FOR PUTTING THIS TOGETHER.
