Panama GEM Charters–Lake Bass Boat

When you think of fishing in Panama you don’t think of freshwater fishing at first, most likely. Panama GEM Charters are here to change that – they’ll take you fishing for gorgeous freshwater beasts in a beautiful, bountiful lake in the jungle!

Climb aboard their 15’ Boston Whaler bass boat, perfectly suited to this area. She can hold up to 4 anglers, all fishing at the same time. She’s got a center console so you can move around freely. A t-top is there to give you shade from the hot Panamanian sun.

You’ll go fishing to a man-made lake surrounded by the jungle. The trip to the lake is almost exciting as the fishing one you get there – you will be able to see a variety of animals along the way. Monkeys are one of the customers’ favorites! Once you get to the lake you’ll get right down to fishing. The species you’ll go after are diverse, like the Peacock Bass, Rainbow Bass, Tarpon, Snook, Tropical Bluegill, and others you run into.

You’ll have the chance to try out a variety of fun fishing techniques. Spinning, jigging, and popping with light tackle, or trolling the lake. You can even give fly fishing a go, though you will have to provide your own fly fishing equipment. The charter will provide you with all required equipment for spinning and trolling. Live bait is also available for use. Water, beer, Gatorade, and juice are complimentary.

So, if you’re up for a jungle adventure the likes of which you’ve never fished before, join Panama GEM Charters and cast off on an unforgettable journey!
