Hello, my name is Yvette and I am planning on going to Panama around February or March 2015, was wondering if there are any "Party Boats" in Boquete, those where you pay a fee (around $50 per trip) to go deep sea fishing for 6 hours making three trips a day? They provide tackle and bait as well. Does anyone know? Thanks much...

We offer inshore and offshore professional day charters out of Boca Chica and Pedregal. If your looking to catch a Marlin or Yellowfin Tuna we'd go offshore to Hannibal bank area and the cost is $1350. For inshore species such as Roosterfish and Cubera Snapper we'd fish Isla Ladrones/Isla Paridas area and the cost is $1200. Full lunch with fresh fruit, gourmet sandwiches, snacks, sodas, bottled water, and beer is included.

Please check out our website at or you can reach me at 6675-7191.

Check with Capt. Brian Brewer:

Cell # 6446-1791. He lives in Boca Chica and cell coverage is spotty at times.

He can get you guys on the water at a reasonable price. All gear included.

You will want to wait till the winds die down a little though...Trust me!

Comment by Jeffery Smith on March 8, 2012 at 4:24pm

I use to fish aeronosa Pardon the spelling.  this side of howard maybe 15 miles or more would love to go again but don't remember for sure how to get there or even if the guides we used and boats are still there.  It was predominatly used by GI's when they were here 35 to rent boat and kind and 5$ for 400 minnows.  we catch about 100 bass each in four hours.  I actually caught two that were huge 22 inches long and 19inch girth the other 21 inches and 18 inch girth largest bass i ever caught.  

anyway I am here until 23 May so if someone is heading that way let me know

I do have friends coming from the states for 12 days 31March to 12 April so wo't be able to go than but any time after that or before 15 Mar thur 30 mar all for it

I can provide transportation if you can provide directions.  P.S. i do not drive Panama city so please dont direct me there
