Panama is considered as one of the top destinations for fresh and saltwater sportfishing. Panama offers some of the best marlin and sailfish opportunities that exist anywhere in the world combining with exciting opportunities for freshwater species in the undeveloped rainforest of Panama's interior.
In season (January-March), Pinas Bay is arguably the best place in the world for the Black Marlin. Zanes Reef is located just a short distance from the Bay and the fishing is nothing short of spectacular. Over 180 world records have been set or broken in Pinas.
Other important fishing spots are Hannibal Bay and Las Perlas Archipelago.
