On the Pacific side of Panama sits an island that has been lost to the test of time… Cebaco…. that is, until James Weise was marlin fishing near it years ago and discovered an untouched fishery. Black marlin, blue marlin, sailfish, large yellowfin tuna, dorado, and wahoo are found in abundant numbers and can be reliably caught year round. Jim took his mothership, the Cebaco Bay, and established a charter operation that is quickly becoming a must visit spot in the Eastern Tropical Pacific. Join us on this adventure as we live on the mothership and fish from it on Jim’s 56’ Viking, the Aguja. But most fishing is done on new 26’ center consoles with twin engine 4 strokes for inshore fish and from completely renovated 31’ Bertram’s when offshore. As far as inshore fishing is concerned, Cebaco Bay ranks amongst the best in the world. Deep jigging the high rocky pinnacles can be productive for a multitude of grouper and large amber jack species while throwing poppers into the surf line can get you tangled up with roosterfish, dog toothed snapper, bluefin trevally, and jack crevalle. The surfing is excellent near Cebaco Bay and some big fish can be found if freedive spearfishing is your sport of interest. Be sure you spend a day or two in Panama City as it is clearly the most modern city in Central America and has become a virtual Miami for those countries. Of course the Panama Canal is a must-see as well.
