Snook Fishing in Panama

Your next sport fishing trip in Panama should be with us!

The Snook is a great fish on light tackle. The best time to find plenty of Snook is in August when they spawn in Coiba.  On your sports fishing trip in panama, you will be fishing from our 22’ Mako in the mangroves near mouths of creeks and rivers.  We cast and troll Yo- Zuri Crystal Minnows and do well!  However, with some extra time, you will increase your lock and catch some big ones! Here in Coiba, you may see Snook go 20-30 pounds on live mullet!!!
