I was blessed to be able to vacation and visit family in Panama in July and August. I was also blessed to be able to go fishing off shore two times. I went in a Panga boat with a local captain to fish in the area of Panama Bay around the islands like Taboga, Tabogilla, Otoque and the pacific entrance of the Panama Canal. My family and I caught Sierra (King fish), Jurel (Jack), Barracuda, and Pez Aguja while trolling. We site fished, casting to movement in the water and tried some bottom fishing. We had more luck trolling. The captain that took us out put us on fish, and we were able to troll, bottom fish, and throw lures all day. It was a really great experience. I can not wait to go back as soon as possible. Panama is a great place for fishing and it was great to spend time with family. If you are on a budget and don't mind fishing on a panga then there are many options for you. And what's even better is that the fishing was good in Panama Bay near Panama City. I know a lot of guys go to Pedasi, Chiriqui and Veraguas. Fishing near to shore, Panama City night life and sea food is a win win. Now to save up my pennies again for another trip. In the meantime I will enjoy the fall run.

We ate all of them. Up here I don't think people like to eat Jacks, but down there its common to eat. The best tasting are the King fish and barracuda to me. There is one fish that we caught that I have no idea what it's called in English or spanish..tasted great too. The fish were prepared with fresh garlic, cilantro, salt, black pepper and scotch bonnet peppers -- fried and sauteed in a brown sauce -mix of soy sauce and fish stock.
