2017 Fishing Season Highlights

 SFTV TSL Trailer

The Black Marlin fishing at Tropic Star Lodge is why many of our guests come to join us in Peak Season. As always, fishing can be unpredictable: sometimes it can be fair, sometimes it can be red hot. This week our guests were here during an amazing stretch of top-notch fishing. The fleet released a phenomenal 69 Black Marlin in the six days of fishing, and a lonely single Blue Marlin also joined the ranks.

Fish on!

For the start of the week we had glassy calm seas, Bluebird colored skies, and not a breath of wind. The water was iridescent blue and the sea temperature was a perfect 83 degrees Fahrenheit. The currents were further offshore making the run to the fishing grounds a little longer than normal. After the first two days on the water we experienced a little breeze and a little chop. This was when the bite turned on. As the week progressed; the currents moved closer in, allowing our fleet to get their baits in the water quicker and more time with lines in the water.

Marlin are plentiful in the waters fished just off the coast from the Tropic Star Lodge

Breaking records and doing it in style! 102 Marlin released in 6 days. Every now and again the stars align and Neptune offers up something truly spectacular. Tropic Star Lodge just experienced one of those spectacular events– our fleet released 102 Marlin in 6 days of fishing!

Fishing highlights for Jan 8-14, 2017 at the Tropic Star Lodge in Panama

Time flies when you’re having fun! Over the past week, the winds have been fairly constant a sign the dry season has begun. This means that the clean water will soon move in bringing the Black Marlin.

The fishing this past week at Tropic Star Lodge has been off the charts!

Happy New Year! The fishing this past week has been off the charts. Offshore, our boats had multiple fish released daily. The sheer number of Pacific Blue Marlin was absolutely incredible. Almost every boat got to experience a double header of Blues with most of them successfully released. Pollyanna even had a triple header and managed to successfully release all three fish.
