We fished in October with Juan and Michael. They were fantastic during the entire day. October may be the worst month to fish due to the weather, but we expected rain and it didn't bother us. Juan found some areas with decent weather by Coibu...More

Great way to fish the Bay of Chiriqui. The "lodge" is rustic, but comfortable and the food out-of-this-world. We fished for tuna and caught as many as we had the strength to pull in. Good boats, great captain. What else could anyone want?
We had a trip of a lifetime fishing with Captain Tatin and his mate aboard the Scandalous. Fishing was great and I caught a 55 pound Rooster Fish! Captain Tatin was so good about taking pictures for us and served us a great lunch. We...More
Our trip with Captain Tatin & Mate Butch encompassed knowledge, determination, and safety to target a large tuna on Hannibal Bank in arduous conditions. Thank you Sportfish Panama Island Lodge and Shane for working with us to reach our goals. Your crew and service was...More

Just got back from another successful trip to Shane's lodge. This time was a little different than past trips. The fishing was not as stellar as other trips due to some bad winds and unusually hot water. I was however able to scratch another species...More
This was my first trip to Panama, I fished with Shane for three days on his Cat right before Christmas. I would be fine living on a deserted tropical island paradise with an abundance of tuna and billfish located just 35 miles offshore, however my...More
I have been fishing in many different countries with many different Captains. Let me say that Shane and Juan are an amazing team. They really work well together, and we were able to get plenty of Tuna. Shane got us in front of the fish,...More
