Islas Secas Advantages

Our location, boats and fishing team led by Carter Andrews are what make the Islas Secas fishing experience truly unique!


Panama is the Big Game Sport Fishing Capital of the World! Read More

Islas Secas is the closest land-based lodge to the world famous fishing grounds of Hannibal Bank (twenty-five miles) and Isla Montuosa (thirty miles).  Other operations are at least fifty miles from these locations.

These fishing grounds thrive due to nutrient-filled waters from the Humboldt Current being pushed into sea mounts that create upwellings and provide a food chain which results in a feeding frenzy.

Other locations include Ladrones, Jicoron, Jicorita, Isla Coiba and Punta Barica.
