Panama Sailfish

Hooking into a Sailfish is one of the most sought-after adrenaline rushes you can find offshore.

One of the real gems found in the waters off Panama is the Sailfish. Tyler Kapela is on his first trip here with Tropic Star Lodge, and after a morning loaded up with tuna, he's got his first sailfish on the line and it is lit up.

This is the action you can expect from one of the most sought-after game fish in the Pacific. These and the Marlin and Roosterfish are the main reason anglers come from all over the world to Tropic Star Lodge. Now throw in Dorado, the monster Cubera Snapper and Wahoo and you've got some of the best game fishing anywhere.
