Toto Fishing Trips – Gamboa

Join Toto Fishing Trip for unforgettable lake fishing in Panama! Your guide will be Capt. Toto, who’s been fishing his entire life. He gained lots of experience participating in fishing tournaments and he embraced that style of catching fish. With him by your side, you’ll learn the best tricks quickly and leave the boat feeling like a true angler, even if this is this is your first time holding a rod.

Capt. Toto welcomes you aboard his 16’ Carolina Skiff. She’s equipped with the latest Raymarine navigational electronics and powered by a 70 HP Suzuki engine. This skiff accommodates only 2 guests, so you’ll have your guide’s full attention and more personalized approach. The boat also has a bluetooth system installed, so you can play your favorite music during the trip.

You’ll mainly target Peacock Bass, Jack Crevalle, Snook, and Tarpon. The best way to catch them is by using light tackle combined with jigging, spinning, and popping. The captain will show you different techniques, so you can see which one feels the best for you or which one simply brings the most catch.

Your captain will provide you with a variety of lures, rods, and reels. Live bait will be prepared in advance and your licenses covered. There will be soft drinks and snacks on board but feel free to bring something to your taste.

Toto Fishing Trips start their adventure in Gamboa and you can find Capt. Toto on the boat every day. You just need to say when you want to go!

Since he was a kid, the captain has always fished with his uncle on all vacation trips. Fishing is the captain's true passion. He's had his boat for 3 years and has participated in Gamboa Tournament and Represa Tournament, winning first place in the Peacock Bass class. If you want to see some really wicked catches, come and join him aboard!
