Panama Sportfishing Lodge

Panama Sportfishing Lodge offers nothing short of the ultimate angling adventure. Owner John de la Cruz pulls out all the stops for every group to make your time with him special. From investing in the best equipment and building world-class crews, you can expect royal treatment during your stay.

How you spend your time on the water is entirely up to you. Take on Sailfish, Tuna, and more in the deep waters offshore. Hit the shallows for monster Roosterfish or drop some lines for tasty Cubera Snapper and Yellowtail Amberjack. Whatever you’re after, you’ll be given tournament-grade tackle on a top-of-the-line boat to make sure your trip is a success.

Spend the day aboard a 35’ Palmetto center console. She was completely restored in 2017 and still looks like she’s fresh out of the boatyard. The vessel is large enough to host any party but she’s limited to 4 guests on each trip. This lets each guest enjoy their day to the max and leaves plenty of space for the crew and a ton of great equipment.

You won’t be short of equipment, that’s for sure. The vessel is equipped with modern marine electronics as well as a livewell bursting with bait. If you’re after bigger game, the boat’s tuna tubes will keep big fish fresh for perfect live trolling.

All Panama Sportfishing Lodge trips come with rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, and a professional crew to keep you hooked up all day long. If you’re looking for that real 5-star fishing experience, you’ve come to the right place.
