Went fishing on Saturday, May 12, 2018

We had a great trip. Warm reception and a lot of time fishing.  We caught a few spanish mackerel right from the start but most of the day was trolling without success..
Thats the breaks!!!
Got some great pictures of a large group of Dolphins and had a little place on Taboga Island fix up our catch to eat.
Miguel offered a lot of information about Panama,  the canal and set us up at a nice cove for a swim and fixed up some great ceviche using some of our fresh catch..

My husband and I really enjoyed our trip. Both Captain Miguel and the other Miguel, were fun, knowledgeable, found us some fish. The boat is also great. Plenty of room for all of us, dry storage for gear and ice for lunches. Getting ceviche for lunch was an incredible end to a fantastic day. Hoe to go out again with these two before we head home.

Went fishing on Saturday, August 19, 2017

The half day fishing trip was very enjoyable particularly since we were lucky enough for it to be sunny weather and to have caught at least one fish, a nine pound Spanish mackerel. Captain Isaac was very personable and professional. Very experienced and knowledgeable about fishing in the area, it was very interesting to talk with him about the maritime scene as well as the fishing environment. He was also very accommodating, ensuring that we had snacks and beverages.  Overall, it was a fun and relaxing morning.

Hello Roger

The pleasure was ours not only for having you on board but also for being in charge of your first fishing experience.

Edgar the captain is a very good fisherman knowing the area,  as well as his deckhand wich is also named Edgar.

We hope to have you on board once again in a near future.

We will be always at your orders.

The GEM Charters Team.

Miguel and Eddie were awesome but we only caught two small fish. That why it’s called fishing and not catching. :-)

Hello guys! A pleasure to have you both on board… Definetly not the best fishing day of the year but spoke to the crew and told you guys went all in from trolling to live bait bottom jigging! Nice barracuda though… Chao!
