We had the opportunity to get to the PBGFC back in August and as you can tell from the other reviews this place is a first class operation. If you are looking for this type of fishing experience you should not look any further, these guys will not disappoint. The crews work their [--] off to get fish on your... More

Having spent most of my adult life fishing in one remote tropical outpost or another, it was instantly recognizable that Mr. C and company have not taken the easy route with the Panama Big Game Fishing Club, and instead are truly building a show place in the jungle. From the stainless steel railings to the stonework in the rooms, attention... More

Why I love my Dad This all started with a deal I had made with my father. IF I could graduate high school with honours, I would earn the trip of a lifetime. Eight months, and a heck of a lot of work later, I managed to exceed my expectations and not only did I pass, but I passed with... More

My dad and I spent Father's Day weekend at PBGFC - two nights two days and a full-day deep sea fishing trip. We arrived right before dinner time and were greeted with shrimp cocktails and caprese salad appetizers along with our drinks - the bartender makes a delicious dirty martini! Then we spent a little while chilling in the jacuzzi... More

Just wanted to say Thank You! The Panama Big Game Fishing Club was an incredible adventure and your personal service made it the BEST fishing trip of the year by far! The inshore dinosaurs were too much for any light tackle under 60lb. I caught 5 different species of fish in 4 hours and all of them were world class... More
