Reel Inn In Panama

Boca Chica, Provincia de Chiri…
Boca Chica, Panamá

Reel Inn in Panama is a full service offshore and inshore fishing charter operation based in Boca Chica, and fishing the Gulf of Chiriqui, including Isla Ladrones, Isla Montuosa, and the infamous Hannibal Bank. They pride themselves on providing their guests with adrenaline pumping, chest thumping Big Game fishing for Black and Blue Marlin, Pacific Sailfish, Giant Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Roosterfish, and many more species.

The Dolphin Dancer is a 27 ft Boston Whaler that is ready to do battle with the biggest and baddest fish the Pacific Ocean has to offer. This Big Game battlewagon comes equipped with the latest electronics, tournament grade tackle, tuna tubes, a livewell, and salt and fresh water washdowns. She has two new Mercury Verado 300 HP engines which power her up to hold-onto-your-hat speeds of 40 knots, saving you as much valuable fishing time as possible. Down below deck, the Dolphin Dancer offers the touches of luxury you would expect of a world-class fishing vessel, including a fully-enclosed head (the ladies like this feature), a full galley, and two comfortable sleeping berths for extended trips.

Reel Inn in Panama is equipped to fish for the best, and has experience fishing with live bait, dead bait, plastics, jigs, poppers and most other methods of fishing known to man. The captain and crew speak both English, and Spanish, and enjoy working with anglers of any experience level, from expert sportfishers to absolute beginners. All charters come with everything included except hats and sunglasses, and they can even sell you those. Reel Inn in Panama also has a videographer onboard on most trips, so they can provide you with a short video of your experience to relive this awesome adventure for years to come.

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.
