Transportation to and from the fishing from Panama City can be arranged and ice, first class fishing gear (conventional & spinning, not fly fishing gear) are provided. As a courtesy, since Panama is short on conveniences, I also can provide sodas, bottled water and sandwiches for the fishing charter. We can meet at 0500 at some hotels in Panama City or at the Sheraton Hotel and Convention Center or at 0600 at the launch point. All you need to bring for any of the above charters is a hat, camera & sunscreen as well as any favorite lures or fishing rods/equipment you might want to use.

At Gatun Lake you will encounter a wonderful rain forest lake of over 200 square miles which is in fact a biological preserve where various rare tropical animals and plants can be observed. To find an unspoiled Jungle lake like this you would probably have to travel 2-3 days into an unstable part of a country much further away than Panama. The peacock bass on Gatun Lake are not fished very often and will readily attack a wide variety of lures, flys and baits. On an average day an angler can expect to catch 30 to 40 bass in the 2-3 pound range with a couple of shots at trophy 5 to 8 pounders, so the action is fast. Unfortunately most of the few boats that do fish on Gatun Lake lack angling imagination, preferring to travel a short distance to the nearest fishing area anchoring the boat to save gas and to soak minnows all day. The result is that they catch several small fish and do not experience the full potential of this awesome adventure. However we will be fishing all over the lake in places few boats ever go, moving constantly from spot to spot looking for the bigger bass.
