TUCAN LODGE

PANAMA FISHING CLUB

Retreat from the real world on a private island lodge and world class fishing.

Where you come as friends and leave as family! The Tucan Lodge is a family owned and operated lodge sitting on an excluded island just off the coast of Panama. The Spragge family has made the quaint little retreat a special place to spend with some of your closet friends, family and fishing buddies. Juan Sr. and Juan Jr. grew up fishing the local waters of Hannibal Bank, Montuosa Island, and Coiba Island. The knowledge they have of the local waters helps make your trip one to remember.

Fishing

Whether you dream is to target fish casting poppers or live baiting for Marlin, Tucan Lodge will help make it happen. If you want to spend the day chasing Roosters or Cubera Snappers around the rock features, you can! Then change it up and chase Dolphin throwing Poppers at the Jumbo Yellowfin schools following along.

Culinary

Once you step off the boat you wont be disappointed with what awaits you, home cooked Panamanian cuisine. Wether they are cooking up some fresh catch from your day or some local favorites, you will be amazed.

Hospitality

Nothing like feeling at home while over looking the local waters and getting fresh sea breeze to wake you in the mornings. Over after a long day on the water grab a seat in one of the many hammocks for a nice afternoon nap.

Stewardship

Journey South Outfitters Stewardship

At Journey South Outfitters we have implemented self imposed limits. We feel that it is our responsibly to do our part to make sure that there is a fishery for the next generation and not abuse our natural resources. We want our clients to enjoy the amazing fishery of Venice Louisiana both on the water and on the table but in a respectful way. If the success of your fishing trip is based on limits we respect that and can recommend an outfitter to you.
