Huge Cubera Snapper

If you've never witnessed the raw strength of a Cubera Snapper, hit play.

Of the many game fish cruising the waters offshore of Panama, few pack the punch of the prized Cubera Snapper.

Tyler Kapela came for his second trip here with that near the top of his list. He knew what these giants can do, especially after his guide busted off on one of these bruisers. They hit the topwater poppers like a prize fighter and then offer a tug of war worthy of the toughest of anglers.

Intrigued? Go get your fight on at the Tropic Star Lodge. Visit or call 800-682-3424 and tell them Tyler hooked you!
