Comfortable accommodations for up to six guests and sportfishing charters on Isla Boca Brava off Panama’s Pacific Coast. The nearby fishing grounds of Hannibal Bank, Isla Coiba and Montuosa make marlin a year-round proposition, while inshore fishing is also red-hot. The club came under new ownership in 2011 and has since undergone a $6million refurbishment.

The fishing

The Club’s proximity to fishing grounds such as Hannibal Bank, Isla Coiba and Montuosa means it has access to year-round action. Much of this is due to the mounds and banks that see the sea bed rise up from 1,000 metres below the surface to less than 40. January through April is prime billfishing season – head offshore and you’ll have a chance to catch black marlin, blue marlin, tuna, sailfish, wahoo and dorado. Inshore species include cubera snapper, rock snapper, mullet snapper, yellow snapper, roosterfish, amberjack, jack crevalle, blue jack, horse-eye jack and sierra mackerel. Whichever direction you go, be prepared for fast and frenetic action.

    “Best Fishing Club I’ve Ever Been!!”

    Reviewed September 10, 2011

    I wanted to write a review because I was very impressed by the service & accommodations at Big Game Panama! I always have heard about the world class fishing in Panama & Big Game was recommended to me by an avid fisherman & Police Officer friend. I knew the place had to be very safe especially being recommended by a fellow officer.

    Upon arrival to Big Game, I noticed that there was renovations being made. There was an infinity pool & jacuzzi still under construction & some of the cabins still being renovated. I was lead to my cabin which was completed. Wow, I was in the middle of the jungle but the cabin was easily 4 or 5 stars! Fishing was incredible. The boat was very well maintained & I was provided with top knotch fishing poles & equipment. My fishing guides were very knowledgeable & made it easy for me to catch “bonitas,” for bait. I was lead out to the Las Lodrones islands where I was able to battle a Blk Marlin! This was the first time I ever battled a Marlin! Even though I lost the battle, the experience of fighting a marlin was one of the best fishing experiences in my life! Catching some snapper & yellow fin made up a little for my loss & Capt Lee & Fidel the chef made some excellent ceviche from those fish!

    Again, Big Game is an amazing place. The Fishing is world class, accommodations, food & service five stars. I want to personally thank, Mr. C, Capt Lee & the Panamanian staff for a fishing experience of a lifetime. I will be back!! Dodie

    Stayed August 2011, traveled with friends

    Blue Marlin! Black Marlin! Yellow fin Tuna!

    Lee, Thank you so much for the most incredible fishing and footage that we got at Panama Big Game. It was your untiring hard work and attention to every detail and tremendous planning that allowed us to get footage never shot before. It was the BEST fishing I have seen there in over 10 years. Where else can you hook 4 blue marlin by 9 AM then move on to 200-300 lb. yellow fin tuna on topwater plugs, all in a single day! It was a first for me bringing a group this year while filming and to see 800 lb black marlin day one was incredible. Everyone raved about the great food and boat crews, I have never seen in all my travels all over the world harder working crews and a spirit of friendship and laughter. It was simply the best fishing ever, but your untiring hard work and planning made our difficult work of filming so much easier and successful, Thank you Lee – This is not a plug, This is a true fact. If anybody doubts this in anyway, have them call me in my office at 978-927-1776 . The inshore fishing was incredible also, My head is still spinning and I already have 8 guys ready to come back for huge snook and sailfish – Lee thank you again, it is always a pleasure and Panama Big Game is a place that I and everyone I have met visiting there always call home. All my best, Trev Gowdy, MONSTER FISH and QUESTfor the One TV Shows.
