One of the best kept secrets of Panama is the world class sport fishing found in the Gulf of Chiriqui. A major factor into why the sport fishing in Panama is in such abundance is the strict laws on sport fishing billfish in Panama, the lack of commercialized fishing, and the law-abiding "catch and release" practice followed by all of the professional sport fishing outfits that operate in the Gulf of Chiriqui. Thanks to the nutrient rich currents that run along the west coast of South America, the amount of offshore pelagic and inshore fish species in the Gulf of Chiriqui is incredible.
In fact, with the nutrient rich water drive up the smaller bait fish in the Gulf of Chiriqui, it is not unusual to see a giant school of Yellowfin Tuna hunting down their prey and literally leaping out of the water in a frenzy. The ultimate fighter, the Rooster Fish is also quite common around the rocky outcrops and shallow beaches found among the many islands in the Gulf of Chiriqui and the incredible size and abundance is guaranteed to make your Panama sport fishing trip legendary. You will not have to be "that guy" telling your friends about the "big one that got away", you will have photo proof that you did in fact catch a big one!
