Fishing at Red Frog Beach

Fishing at Red Frog Beach

  • Panama means "an abundance of fish"

  • The Bocas del Toro Archipelago is made up of 68 islands and keys and one of the most beautiful locations in Panama

  • Offshore runs are short and convenient, within sight of land you can catch Tuna, Wahoo, Kingfish (Pacific runs are much longer)

  • Various types of Snapper are caught within a mile off shore in Bocas del Toro, year round. Up to 40 lbs (Red, Black, Gray, Yellow Tail, Mutton)

  • Panama fishing in Bocas del Toro gets good runs of Tuna, Wahoo, King Mackerel, and Snapper

  • The wind is very calm in Bocas during the Spring and Fall seasons

  • There are many rivers within the Bocas Archipelago that hold Tarpon and Snook at certain times each year

  • Within a days journey to World Famous Rio Colorado Fishing lodges in Costa Rica

  • Within a days journey the San Blas Islands (378 islands) and fish the Vulcan Reef (old volcano)

  • Un-chartered waters: Migratory path of the billfish from the Cancun trench to Venezuela-somewhere these fish pass by Panama (but yet to be discovered)

  • Low cost: Inshore boat — $250/day; Offshore boat — $650/day. Includes lunch, drinks, bait, guide. Much less expensive than fishing on the Pacific side of Panama
