We last went to Panama Big Game Fishing Lodge in 2007. Since then we have fished in several other Central American countries as well as the famous fishing lodge everyone talks about in Panama!…. In our opinion, nothing else matches Panama Big Game Fishing Lodge, so we returned in August 2014. The fishing was still as good and the lodge... More

From the owner, Mark Victor Chapman, to the manager Victor, to the Captains, and deckhands, like Hollywood, Kenny, Antonio and it i left any body out I am sorry. These... More

I've just spent 6 nights and 5 days fishing at the Panama Big Game Fishing Club. It's the most amazing resort and has won last 3 years "Trip Advisor" awards for boutique resorts, and I can understand why... I can't really fault any of their facilities or their staff. Deckies "Hollywood" and "Kenny" are brilliant in their trade and hilarious... More

We go on a Family fishing trip every year for the past 9 years. This year I brought my two sons 8 and 11. The staff was great, the fishing was great. The cooked the fish we caught every night. I would go back again. Time of our life!!!!

Everything about this trip was exceptional. You can tell when the owners really care, because it will trickle down to everyone involved. The level of Hospitality we received was world class. The on site Chef creates a dinner menu based on what you bring back!! He was also always there to whip up a side of Guacamole or Pico de... More

We are two families that have had annual fishing trips for the last 17 years. We have fished in many places near and far. PBGFC was undoubtedly the most unique experience for us with great accommodations, excellent food and drink, outstanding service and some of the very best fishing we have ever experienced. We caught a 500 lbs. black marlin,... More

From the moment my Father and I arrived at the club everything was first class. From the drinks that are served to you the second you arrive to the accommodations to the food. No detail left to chance. The boats and the equipment are all top of the line. Everything well maintained and clean. The captains and the mates all... More

When you hear about the fishing here, you start to wonder if it's all true. Where do I start? The Gulf of Panama is a unique environment, fed by nutrient-rich waters - so in better words, this place is AWESOME! I had the opportunity to take a friend of mine who has never set foot on Panamanian waters and the... More
