Various types of Snapper are caught within a mile off shore in Bocas Del Toro, year round. Up to 40 lbs (Red, Black, Gray, Yellow Tail, Mutton). Panama fishing in Bocas del Toro gets good runs of Tuna, Wahoo, King Mackerel, and Snapper. The wind is very calm in Bocas during the Spring and Fall seasons. There are many rivers within the Bocas Archipelago that hold Tarpon and Snook at certain times each year. Within a days journey to World Famous Rio Colorado Fishing lodges in Costa Rica.
