All Inclusive Package – Email for Pricing at [email protected]
Los Buzos is located on the remote and picturesque Pacific coast of Panama. It’s a dream location for slow pitch jigging with:
- Incredible pelagic fishery for both slow pitch and speed jigs (60-200ft) within a few miles offshore.
- Miles of virgin deep water slow pitch opportunities (200ft+) just a few miles further out from the pelagic fishery
- Micro-jigging locations that provide dozens of species and provide non-stop action (60-100ft).
Common target species that readily eat jigs include Broomtail Groupers, Roosterfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Corvina, African Pompano, Bluefin Trevally, Golden Trevally, Sierra Mackerel, Rock Snappers, Yellow Snappers, Pacific Red Snappers, Colorado Snappers, Spotted Rose Snappers, Almaco Jacks, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi and many more. Common bycatch in the pelagic fishery is Jack Crevalle, Bonito and White Tuna.
The deep-water fishery is virtually unfished by locals and other sport fishermen. There are plenty of days when you cannot get the jig to the bottom without a hook-up. The general lack of strong currents means that you can get to the bottom with lighter jigs (150-250g even in 500+ ft of water) so you won’t need specialized gear. Common target deep water species include damsel fish (long-fin seabass), gulf coney (like red grouper), snowy grouper and grey tilefish. Just about every time we go out, we catch new species. The opportunities are limitless and the fishing is on fire out deep!
Techniques used include both traditional slow pitch with flutter jigs (pelagic species), deep jigging with torpedo shaped jigs and speed jigging. These fish see very little to almost no pressure, so they usually crush jigs readily and the biggest challenge is getting your jig in the strike zone without getting hooked up to something else first.
