Fishing at Paradise Lodge

Paradise Fishing Lodge

Paradise Fishing Lodge is located just south of David, in Quebrada de Piedra, Chiriquí, Panama. Strong underwater currents flow north, along the west side of South America, up into the Gulf of Chiriquí. Cold, nutrient-rich water from the ocean floor is brought to the surface and supports abundant microscopic life, which in turn supports baitfish. These plentiful baitfish bring thriving game fish species to the area.

Fish for giant yellowfin tuna, record-sized black or blue marlin. On occasion, the offshore fishing can be rough, but there is always good fishing around the islands if it gets too choppy. Paradise Fishing Lodge offers anglers excellent inshore fishing – snook, 20-to 70-pound cubera snapper, pompano, huge roosterfish (15-to 80-pounds), mahi-mahi, and jacks flourish here.
