Overview

Use this book to treat yourself to some outstanding fishing and scenery rewards! From Panama to Mexico, the Pacific Ocean offers an incredible assortment of truly exciting gamefish in the midst of splendid surroundings. In Fishing Guide to Central America's Prolific Pacific, seasoned angler-author Ray Rychnovsky takes you on an unforgettable Pacific coastal fishing journey from Mexico to Panama. With the wealth of information obtained from this book, you can create your own Pacific Coastal Fishing Chronicles!

Central America is one of the best, if not the best, places in the world to catch many large, hard-fighting fish. You will see huge marlin weighing as much as 1000 pounds; ten or more sailfish for everyone on the boat in a day's fishing; the world's largest yellowfin tuna weighing almost 400 pounds; super-fast wahoo; dorado, roosterfish, grouper, albacore, and more. Besides the fantastic fishing, Central America has so much more to offer-tropical rainforests with exotic birds, plants, and animals; Mayan and Aztec ruins; and great weather, especially during our winter months.

A fishing trip to Central America can be arranged to fit most budgets, and Fishing Guide to Central America's Prolific Pacific will help you plan the trip of a lifetime!
