About the Captain

Dave Murphy
Boca Chica, Panamá
Member since May 2017
I started fishing as soon as I could hold a rod and have spent a lifetime chasing fish from inland lakes and rivers to fishing for Grander Marlin in Panama! I started my Big Game Fishing career about 25 years ago in the Florida Keys, and have been going strong ever since. We moved to Panama about 10 years ago and started Reel Inn In Panama. Our boats and equipment are top of the line, and every member of our team is specially qualified to make your trip the trip of a lifetime! Come join us and check off some of those "Bucket List" fish, like Marlin, Sailfish & Giant Tuna!

We spent three full days chasing marlins but they never showed up (as a real fisherman would say: ” it is called fishing, not catching!”). Meanwhile we enjoyed every minute of our trip with Cap. Murph and Sue, we caught plenty of other fish and got to take some beautiful Tuna home for dinner. Everyone was professional and determine to show us the best time, which they did. If in Panama again, we would not hesitate to go visit them and give this Marlin thing another try.
