Intrepid wrapped up a trip off Panama, with exceptional inshore fishing for snapper, roosterfish and jacks out of kayaks and skiffs early this week. The action on tuna to 60 pounds on surface poppers was also exceptional during the last couple of days of this fly-down, fly-back trip. Royal Star is in waters off Clipperton Island and reporting exceptional yellowfin action. The rest of the fleet continues to fish the giant yellowfin grounds off Baja California — and each trip has been returning with a number of fish over 250 pounds and a huge number of 100- to 200-pound-class yellowfin. Epic fishing.
