also now considering San Diego - Mako shark fishing, possibly as early as September.   Airfare is $238, and can get all day trips for like $900.   Tuna good possibility from there in September as well.     Probably as good or better than here and a lot cheaper and closer.

I can't justify the expense at any of these Central America Fishing lodges.    Ridiculous...

for 3 days fishing, 4 nights lodging is $3,925 a person!!!!

Plus you need this:

TRANSFER PACKAGE
$660 per person
Additional

A transfer package of $660 per person is additional to the rates above. This transfer package includes round trip airfare from Panama City to the Lodge in Piñas Bay, meet-and-greet Service at the Tocumen International Airport upon arrival to Panama, and up to four transfers between the airport and your hotel in Panama City.

 

Plus regular airfare from Newark.

PLUS TIPS ON ALL SERVICES AND CHARTERS.

 

So a trip for the two of us would cost well over 10 grand for just 3 days of fishing!!!

No fishing is worth that IMHO.

Forget Los Suenos...   Again - Central America fishing is TOO EXPENSIVE, IMHO...  

 

"Here is an idea of costs for the 38 ft Dream Girl which is the boat you want to be on. 

Full day offshore sails tuna dorado marlin all possible 1950 per day. All lite breakfast burrito, fruits, lunches water sodas and beers all included and will be on the boat each day. 

You want to stay in a condo in Los Suenos which is 375 per day that time of year and is your best bet. Three bedrooms two baths full kitchen living dining and terrace with views. Much better than staying in the Marriott in a room. Pools are gorgeous by the condos. 

Transfers to and from airport to Los Suenos will be 125-140 each way for an air conditioned Mercedes van. "

So 4 nights lodging, figure $1,600.

3 days fishing, $7,200 with tips

$300 airport transfers.

$900 in airfare combined round trip.

Now we are at 10 grand without having dinner covered each night.

Well if you’re looking at September, have you entertained the thought of some river Salmon Fishing? Fight of a lifetime, $600 for a week in a cottage overlooking the river and a simple steak dinner will buy you guidance from a guy that will Guarantee you hook up. :hippie: just sayin’ LOL December could get you some of theseF25DA443-9B31-4D11-95A6-495C30912C87.thumb.jpeg.3e2a6455fd62c8fdb598342d1ced71da.jpeg

It's coming back to that, or San Diego for Mako/Tuna...      $238 round trip to San Diego and all day offshore $900 is hard to beat, and I never really been to California other than LAX on way back from Hawaii.     (I know - Cali is full of liberals but would like to try the fishing there and good sushi)

Jack for less than some of those how about look into Alaska trip. Bottom fishing and plus river for salmon and trout. And will be the most awesome scenery you will ever see.

Not as exotic but the south east cost of Florida can have good numbers of sailfish that time of year. No armed guards, you can drink the water and if the fishing turns off you can go hog hunting.   Lots of good charter captains esp around Jupiter

Another place to consider in that time period would be Argentina or Chile - the water temps would probably be at their peaks at that time.   Both countries are relatively clean (just poor) and have a reasonably law abiding population.   The Argentinian Peso has taken a real drubbing over the past few years against the dollar...
