Popping and Jigging in Panama

Incredible Variety

The Ultimate Popper and Jigging Destination

This exciting lodge is the first and only one based on the Tuna Coast, arguably the best sport fishing destination in Panama.

With World Record sized fish a regular occurrence here and a huge variety of species and methods this lodge is the ideal place to start your fishing adventures.

This beautiful lodge is affordable and caters more for the European style fisherman. Primarily you will be fishing with poppers, stickbaits and jigs, meaning that this trip is suited to active fishermen rather than those who want to just sit back and have the rod handed to them. Slow Pitch jigging is also practised here and the lodge owner is a pioneer in this discipline and is more than happy to share his passion, knowledge and enthusiasm.
