Panama Mothership

At a Glance

This is the ultimate Panama fishing trip: six days of fishing, short run times, extended fishing hours, and access to the most exclusive fishing grounds in Panama. The Panama mothership is a 70 foot, air-conditioned floating fishing lodge, taking you to the best fishing spots in the country and keeping you out there all week. Enjoy air conditioned rooms, delicious food, cold drinks, great people, and out‐of‐this‐world fishing aboard the best mothership in Panama. Spend all week fishing world famous offshore destinations like Hannibal Bank and Montuosa Island for huge marlin and tuna or fish hundreds of miles of untouched coastline inside the Coiba Island National Park. The claim to fame here is that we can catch over 40 different species of fish in a week!

Property Info

Despite the exotic location of spending your week 50 miles out to sea, the 70’ mothership provides a surprising amount of creature comforts during your stay. The converted barge features 4 air‐conditioned rooms, each with four comfortable beds (three twin beds and one full sized bed). The award‐winning chef will cook you three fresh meals a day, many of which are the freshest catch‐of‐the day that you and your fellow anglers bring back. There are also two full bathrooms with hot water showers, daily laundry service, and a full bar. When you aren’t fishing you’ll spend most of your time on the open‐air deck at the bow of the boat where you will eat your dinners, enjoy a daily happy hour & appetizers, and share drinks & stories with your fellow anglers.

World class fishing is what the Panama mothership is all about, and they do it well. You’ll spend your week fishing aboard their 27’ Ocean Master center consoles at world famous hot spots like Montuosa Island, the Hannibal Bank, Isla Jicarito, and of course Coiba Island. All boats are equipped with the best Shimano tackle, live wells, tuna tubes, fighting belts, and all the lures & gear you’ll ever need. Each and every day you are out fishing you can decide whether you want to bottom fish with jigs or chunk bait, cast crank baits, troll rapalas, fish live bait for giant roosterfish, chuck poppers for cubera snapper, or head offshore to chase billfish or yellow‐fin tuna. As the mothership will be anchored right by the fishing grounds this will give you another 2‐3 hours of fishing each day and avoid long run times. If anyone wants or needs an afternoon or a full day break from the fishing you can go kayaking, visit secluded island beaches, snorkel spots at Coiba Island National Park, or visit the now‐famous Coiba Island penal colony – the most feared penitentiary in Panama’s history.
