Here we go again. Another great week at Hooked on Panama Lodge. Dan and Judy Hunsaker, with their friend Stephen Shell, returned for their third trip to Hooked on Panama Lodge.
The tuna bite is still going off. Now, they only got 15 yellow fin tuna from 60 to 130LBS. But, Dan wanted me to explain, that the lower count was because, when you have a 100 pounder on spinning gear and it takes an hour and a half to land the thing, it doesn’t leave much time for catching more:) That is over 22 hours of combined fighting time.
They also got 4 nice dorados, and, got into a school of rainbow runners all in the 20lb. range and caught at least a dozen. Our local police friends were really happy with some fresh fish.
Pulled up to another shrimp boat. Traded 1/2 case of beer and 1/2 case of coke for 15lbs. of fresh shrimp. At least we are eating something besides tuna, thank God. Margot, the chef, made her Panamanian version of seafood soup. It was a hit that night for dinner.
Got another family here right now and today is their last day. So, I’ll have another report in a few days. Also have my family here with me and I will be taking my daughter Alexia fishing tomorrow:) She notified me she wants to catch a snapper
Until next time, tight lines.
