Fishing the eighth wonder of the world – the Panama Canal - is truly a once in a lifetime experience. Peacock bass are plentiful, with snook and even tarpon a possibility depending on conditions and angling skill.
As the guidebook Adventures in Nature Panama (author: William Friar, 2001), described it:
“The fishing here [Lake Gatun/ Panama Canal] is terrific- the peacock bass population, accidentally introduced decades ago, is so out of control fishermen are actually encouraged to catch them to restore some kind of ecological balance. It’s not uncommon for an angler who knows the good spots to catch dozens of fish an hour.”
It is an amazingly beautiful setting... surrounded by abundant birdlife (this is the same general area where the world birdwatching record for most species of birds sighted in 24 hours is held) and abundant wildlife - with frequent spottings of crocodiles, iguanas, sloths, monkeys, and other animals - from the boat.
The fishing boat is a Hurricane FunDeck 201 boat... ¨the most comfortable and well-prepared charter fishing boat on the Panama Canal.¨ It comes fully equipped with shade canopy, electric trolling motor, 2 front swivel chairs, live bait box, full tackle, rods and reels.
