The abundance of coral reefs and healthy waters make San Blas an excellent and unknown area for fishing. Out past the reefs, deep water species occur while inshore species wait for prey at the mouths of rivers and lurk in the coral reefs. You never know what you might catch as there are dozens of species such as barracuda, snapper, mackerel, amber jack, snook and lots of more. Mostly unknown by anglers visiting Panama, lack of fishing infrastructures and equipment there, we have the solution for you!
Your Kuna captain, guide and fishing mate Pedro with his expat friend Mike acting as a English and French guide and providing top of-of-the line fishing equipment will be part of the trip, it is the reason why the fishing trip to San Blas are only available during the weekends because Mike has others duties in the city and his fishing equipment must be returned with him back to the city for its maintenance.
About Pedro, fishing has always been an important part of Pedro’s life. As a child he skipped school and stole rolls of fishing nylon and some hooks to his father to fish from the shore of his village Carti. Pedro managed to finish school, in Panama-City but decided to return to the village of Carti Yandub after 10 years and dedicate his time for his community and work as an ecotourism guide, captain and of course during his time to fish and learn “modern” fishing techniques.
