Panama Big Game - 37’ Rattle Snail

Isla Boca Brava
Boca Chica, Panamá

Welcome to the “Jurassic Park” of big game fishing, our award winning luxury resort is located on the beautiful tropical jungle Island of Boca Brava, perched high up, on the top of a hill with breath taking 360 degree views of some of the most prolific big game fishing grounds in the World, re-named “Jurassic Park” in 2001 by some of our first clients, shocked by the sheer size of the “Monsterfish” they encountered fishing the waters surrounding Isla Montuosa and Hannibal Bank.

Panama has always been a top destination for those seeking extraordinary fishing and Panama Big Game Fishing Club has existed as an established destination since 2001, and in 2011 it was bought by Mark Charman (Mr. C!) who had the vision of turning it into the top big game fishing destination not only in Panama, but in the whole of Central America and to be in the “Top 10 in the World”.  Judging by the accolades, awards and prolific media coverage he has succeeded in his ambition.

Being an avid saltwater fisherman since the age of 4 and a keen fly fisherman he has spent the past 25 years travelling the world in search of Marlin and Sailfish and the largest pelagic species he could find. He knows how to cater for the tastes of the fanatical fisherman in search of Monsterfish and after a hard days fishing, being spoiled with the kind of 5-6 star luxury seldom found outside of less remote locations. Mr “C” has built the Club adding in all of the top of the line luxuries that all of the other lodges left out.

Quite simply the PBGFC is a cut above every other fishing lodge you have ever visited,and gets better upon each and every visit, as the improvement and upgrade program never stops”. As Mr “C” says ” Real excellence is a is a journey and never a final destination”. The accommodation is 5 star with all modern benefits.
