Default This is where I disappeared to.

Hello all. Some of you have noticed that I haven't been on in a while. Well after the long ordeal of liquidating "stuff" I headed South. I am still creeping around the Forum reading post but since I basically have no skin in the game anymore (locally) I have been holding off commenting or shooting you some of what's going on.

Since this is a fishing forum, I finally found some time to post something appropriate. Miss talking to a lot of you, but have been busy getting back into "Island Time" in Panama. Found a interesting little Island on the Caribbean and considering making it permanent after 5 weeks here. We will see.

Anyway, this is a trip that we took Monday to finally get a hook wet. The boats down here are called Pangas. Very narrow compared to the normal fishing machine from our area but very fuel efficient and are mostly used for water transport.

We went to the outskirts of an Island in about 600+ foot of water and started trolling while following the birds. What we ended up within a couple of hours was 10 Tuna (both black fin and yellow fin), 2 sharks, 4 lost at the boat, and a monster 60 pound yellow fin that made it back into the deep when the Captain hit the lure while attempting to gaff. After a 28 minute fight my arms are still sore. We also saw a Whale Shark that was much larger that the 23 foot of hull that was under our feet. Enjoy the photos.

By the way, loving it down here and couldn't be happier.

The stress is gone as well as the headaches, weekly visits to the massage therapist and the meds went out with the last load of trash. Tight lines guys.

I wrote a full page of "stuff" for you guys this morning and it just disappeared.
So in short from questions and PM's;

Yes Ice, just bleeding out and shifting boxes.

Good to hear from you Captain Murph and Pat.

Not sure about boat mechanics but will ask around.

Temps sometimes in the mid 90's, not a lot of A/C. (nothing seems to dry out)

NO, there are not herds of available women with morally lax attitudes around.

Some things are MORE expensive, remember it's an Island and everything has to be shipped in.

High season is December to March / April. Some rooms and rental can almost double in price. Other items increase also.

Don't need a vehicle South of the 1 gas station. Taxi's are 60 per head anywhere below that gas station.

Ooooohhhhhh yeah, speaking of Gas. They don't know what ethanol is. There are some REALLY smart people down here.

And last but not least, one more for Jason.

Thanks guys, have a great rest of the week. T

PS. This was from a little trip last week to the other side of the country. Los Olas. Beautiful and very much undeveloped.

PSS. If any of you are wanting to follow more of our adventures, shoot me a PM and I can give you contact info on a dreaded social sight that you can follow. I WILL NOT post this directly to this forum in an effort to keep it pure!
