Fishing Panama Marlin

This is another shot of a Blue Marlin this past season in December.  We are getting really booked up for December 2015 season! The end of the rainy season brings in cool water, bait fish and big Blue Marlin!

Mr Trigger Sportfishing opens in November and closes in March and reopens in August. The reason for this is we are a seasonal boat that only wants to put our guest on the absolute best fishing days of the year! The rest of the year we strive to prepare for the next go around and make the boat more comfortable and our skills sharper for our guest!

December for Mr Trigger while fishing in Panama was absolutely amazing as far as Marlin fishing. We fished all over the bay of Chiriqui.  Among the marlin species blue marlin are often caught off this area of Panama but, Blue Marlin this past December was just astounding! We raised over 30 fish and hooked about 18 of them with releases in the 10 range!

 

Blue Marlin are targeted and caught on Mr Trigger sport fishing panama on all kinds of techniques.  “We try to mix it up for our clients” (Jorge, deck hand Mr Trigger) says with being offshore with new guys all the time we like to show them we do it all! Whether its live baiting for big fish, pulling lures, trolling ballyhoo, or skipping big dead baits we try to really get on the fish and get that bite we are looking for ! Our clients come a long way and book multiple days and as professionals we try to give them what they paid for! ” ENTERTAINMENT”

Tagging bill fish all over the work has become a huge phenomenon to anglers, mates, and captains alike! With The Bill Fish Foundation leading the way in the industry in regards of tagging and doing research  for the last few years and, many more companies coming along with research and discovery on how these fish act and travel through their journey through life!

Black Marlin shots like this off Panama don’t happen often! Sport fishing off Panama it’s not uncommon to get bites from these massive fish in the 700-1000lb range! Although we have never released a Marlin over the 1000 pound mark we will some day we have seen them free jumping offshore and we have had them hooked! catching these fish and even getting them to bite is not easy! Mr Trigger usually uses 15 – 30 pound live baits weather they are rainbow runners, skip jack and yellow fin tuna.  Bonita are a favorite for the other captains in the area but to truly get the big fish in the 700 to 1000 pounds you need a bait that no other fish can eat!

 

Mr Trigger’s season is really narrowed down to these months of fishing December – March and now open in August in 2016 for this reason only!  We can always get you a tuna and the other months you can get the wind and the rain so these are the months to really target this monster catch!

December was expectedly  great yet again for the 2014-2015 season!! We released over 50 Blue Marlin in the month of December and even more in January for 2015! This next season will probably be looking to be even better with the Blue Marlin Black Marlin and Wahoo!

The big reason for this part of the season  being so good is that its at the end of the rainy season! There are plenty of logs that have washed out of the mountains and rivers. Very large tree size logs and other floating object have made there way offshore by the December – February months so it makes for great floating habitats for the entire food chain!

Over cast days equal marlin on the surface because of the cooler surface temps that bring the bait up sometimes all day long!  If you are in the right spot at the right time with bait and water temps right using Bait n Switch can be an amazing way to catch these fish!! Well this time we had it to our selves with everything falling in the right spots! We had an amazing day out on the Montousa Bank 36 miles out going a crazy 8-12 on Black Marlin and 3-4 on Blue Marlin with some releases on sails as well!

Booking December or January is the absolute best time of the year because everything as far as conditons is correct. Lots of over cast days and good water temps are almost a given.  Booking multiple days is a must to get that shot at an amazing bill fish and a great inshore day all in one trip!
