Bloodydecks Fishing Charters - 33'

When you’re looking for a beautiful destination that can accommodate your growing fishing ambitions, Panama is the way to go! Bloodydecks Fishing Charters has been running charters out of Panama City for years, and Captain Joel Boyd knows a thing or two about finding trophy-sized fish.

With him at the helm, you can head out to the 20 Fathom Trench to chase pelagics like Mahi Mahi and Wahoo or go to Cocos to catch big Cubera Snapper and acrobatic Amberjack. If you’re an experienced angler looking for their next challenge, the deep sea fishing expedition and the multiday trip to Piñas Bay will put you on the trail of Marlin, Tuna, and Sailfish.

There’s no limit to what you can hook in these prolific waters and you’ll have an excellent boat as your ride and fishing platform. You’ll be casting your line out of a 33’ Volvo Mega yacht, fitted with 2 powerful 315 HP Yanmar engines. The vessel is a thing of beauty, and spacious enough to receive up to 9 people.

On board, you’ll find all the comforts you could ask for on a boat – an air-conditioned cabin with plenty of seating room, a kitchen, and a private toilet. The vessel sports quality fishing equipment, including a fighting chair, Tuna tubes, a live bait well, and outriggers, so you’re covered in every situation.

Capt. Joel will provide top-quality rods and reels by Daiwa, Penn, and Shimano for you to use. For anything you might need, turn to your first mate, who is both knowledgeable and friendly. Whatever catch you keep, he’ll clean and fillet, so that you can enjoy it as soon as you come home. For his hard work, tips are always appreciated.

When it comes to your preparation for the expedition, the list is quite short – buy enough drinks and food to last the trip, bring spare clothing, and sunscreen. After that, your ultimate fishing adventure with Bloodydecks Fishing Charters can begin!
