A new operation in a new destination off Panama’s Pacific Coast? It didn’t take much arm-twisting for me to plan a visit to the mothership Pacific Provider in the Islas de Perlas, nor for my friend and Sport Fishing contributor Dave Lewis of Wales in the United Kingdom to join me in early September.
We fished the rocky habitat in the innumerable islands situated roughly in the middle of the Golfo de Panama, about 60 miles southwest of Panama City, and caught a variety of game fish. The big mullet snapper, like this one hoisted by Lewis, particularly impressed me with their savage strikes and tremendous power.
You can read more about the trip and the outstanding floating resort Pacific Provider in the April 2013 issue, but for now, enjoy some images from the Panama’s Islas de Perlas.
