I am a professional angler and fishing guide. I used to captain pangas and guide kayaks to catch monster fish every day in some of the best fishing locations in Panama. Now I use my knowledge to make sure you catch a dream fish off the Panama city shore. Book a trip with us, bring your family and friends, and let's go fishing!
