There are only a few places in the world’s oceans where anglers can target Black Marlin consistently. Pinas Bay, Panama is right at the top of that list. During our peak winter season, the marlin fishing at Tropic Star Lodge is like no were else on the planet. The fishing grounds are under five miles from the Lodge. The famous Zane Grey Reef is in our backyard and the fish that it hosts is incredible. The Largest fish ever caught on this reef was a 1 300lbs Black Marlin which was famously filmed by Guy Harvey.

Our Captains have incredible experience having gone through extensive training with us. Fishing is all about passion, enjoyment and camaraderie and that is exactly what our crews are all about.
