Report from Karma that stayed at Panama Sportfishing lodge July 17
Bob and son Kyle have been fishing our area the last few months , Bob did a little near shore fishing with Capt. Macho .

They Left at 7a.m from PSFL heading over to Montuosa. Took about 40 min to get to the fishing grounds. Once we got there we set our bait rigs and picked up a several skip jacks and one yellow fin tuna once the tubes were loaded we set our live bait spread we had two baits in the water and as we are getting ready to put our third bait in the long rigger snaps! Kyle takes the rod and makes a solid hook up the fish comes airborne and itís a Black Marlin. We clear deck and start the battle with the fish we are on him for 35 min. weíd have him right on the back of the boat and as soon as he felt the boat close heíd make 5 or 6 jumps and takes on deep water.

We managed to bring him back after 15 min. or so grab the leader to find that he had gotten tale wrap we take the hook off and start to revive him for a good 20 min. or so but no luck. We decided to give the fish to the local fisherman from the area. Estimated 500 lbs.

Back to trolling and no more than 10 min. when the short rigger snaps and starts ripping line and here we go again game on Black Marlin we clear the deck and the fish starts air borne all over the place. we started backing down on him and got the leader with in 15 min. of the fight but the fish was still too green and had to fight him for another 20 min till we got the leader again and made a clean release. Estimated weight 300 lbs.

Were out of bait by now so we put the bait rigs out made bait and trolled for and hr. or so and we get a bite and itís a medium Yellow fin tuna we manage to get it in the boat, we kept trolling but no more bites, we decide to pick up and make the run over to Hannibal Bank got there set our spread and had 2 or 3 knock downs on the big baits but just to find that it was small tunas hitting our baits. Around 5 p.m we called it a day pick up and run over to Coiba to spend the night.

July 18, 2009
Left Coiba Island at 6.45a.m heading to Montuosa once we got there we made bait set our spread and started working the area, nothing much on going on just a few nervous baits. around 11.45a.m we decided to head over to Hannibal Bank once there no more than 15 min. when the first knock down Kyle getís the rod and makes a solid hook up the Marlin comes jumping all over the place the guys clear the deck and we start working the fish after 35 min. we have leader and make a clean release. We estimated 350lbs. Black Marlin.

We set our spread again and work over the high spots when one of the baits is half dead and I tell kyle to bring it in and set a new bait out in the process of doing that he getís bit but the fish letís go and now our other bait is freaking out when suddenly a huge boil and I was able to see the fish take our bait it was a 200 plus yellow fin tuna!!

Bob sets the hook and the fish is peeling line like crazy but after a minute or two the fish comes off, so were back to trolling again. I made a few passes where we had gotten bit and our short bait gets hammered. Bob gets the rod feeds the fish I gun the boat and we got a solid hook up and the Marlin starts jumping and ripping line like crazy. we clear the deck and back down on the fish we have him to the side of the boat in 10 min. but he was still too green. He takes off again into deep water we fight him for another 30 min. or so and got color got him to the side of the boat and made a clean release, estimated weight 600lbs.

Not too bad for the offseason!
