Bloodydecks Fishing Charters - 31'

It’s time to book the adventure of a lifetime today! Join Bloodydecks Fishing Charters for an unforgettable trip in Panama City. Joel has been fishing for nearly 2 decades, and has caught some huge fish in that time, including a 260 lb Yellowfin Tuna!

Although your catch might not reach this size, you are still bound to have an awesome time fishing! Captain is more than happy to teach and fish with everyone, whether this is your first fish or your hundredth.

Hop on board their 31’ Bertram, recently restored in 2017, which is able to have you and 3 of your fishing friends on board. With twin 315 HP Yanmar engines, you’ll be at the fishing grounds before you know it. The further you go, the better and bigger the fish.

The boat has full safety and navigational equipment on board, including fishfinder. This, paired with the crew’s extensive knowledge, will have you on top of the fish all day long. This vessel also boasts air-conditioning and a multi-media system that you can plug your phone in to – have an epic fishing playlist ready!

The day will be spent targeting Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Bigeye Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Roosterfish, and many more. The crew will teach you a range of techniques to best catch the fish in season. For Billfish, the best time to catch them is from July through to January.

Included in the price are all fishing rods and reels, as well as live bait and lures. The live bait is prepared before the trip so no time is wasted. A fishing license for the area is included, so all you need to do is bring along plenty of food and drink (which can go into the captain’s cooler) and organize accommodation.

The crew of Bloodydecks Fishing Charters can’t wait to meet you and begin making some lifelong fishing memories together.

    In this trip we travel 55 miles to get to the are of Cocos. In summer we get cold currents (humboldt current) and all the bottom fish come to surface looking for warmer waters and makes it easier to catch fish, we catch many tipes of different species but the most common are big amberjacks and diverse tipes of snappers including Cubera.
