2017 Fishing Season Highlights

Marlin sportfishing at Panama's Piñas Bay resort, Tropic Star Lodge

We have been experiencing unpredictable weather with either rain or sunshine in our forecast. Showers are becoming more frequent in the evenings and the cloud cover is welcome as it keeps the days out on the water much cooler. We have been experiencing mostly calm seas with around two to four-foot swells further apart. We had a few bumpy days where the winds came up with a passing tropical storm.


The rains are now part of our normal weather pattern with afternoon showers and larger storm systems passing through every few days. With the rains comes new debris flowing into the ocean creating welcome salinity and temperature changes. This becomes obvious to our captains as the color line changes.

Ready for release

After a few whirlwind weeks and a successful visit to the ICAST sportfishing convention we’re back online. The offshore bite has turned on here at Tropic Star with our first Grand Slam of the season and our fleet experiencing some awesome Marlin action. On the 4th of July, we had three teams compete in the Blue Marlin World Cup. A big congratulations to team Done Deal for taking the tournament.

Tropic Star Lodge was the perfect setting for fun over the Fathers Day holiday. We had a wonderful group join us from all over the globe. They were excited to spend time in the jungle with friends and family and Neptune blessed the anglers with great fishing as well. On Father’s Day we had activities for the whole family. We started the festivities with our traditional hermit crab race which is never short on laughs.

After a short break for maintenance we were ready to have anglers back with us for some fishing adventures. The weather was as to be expected for this time of year with blue bird skies, hot sunshine, and always the chance of rain. Our guests arrived supercharged and full of excitement. Our team was just as eager to see what Neptune had in store for them.
