From what I’ve seen on YouTube, that’s going to be an amazing trip. I’ll say my prayers that your luggage/gear makes it there with you. That’s a serious arsenal.

 i used to commercial fish there and occasionally got huge and i do mean huge black marlin. they always came up dead. there was no market for them so i would put them on the dock and say help yourselves. the house wives would swarm like piranha. they could strip a thousand pound fish in like 5 minutes. that was in the gulf of panama.

 

also in the gulf i commercially trolled for tuna. i would work the spinner dolphin. excellent fishing at times

 

i commercially trolled tuna to the west of coiba as well. worked spotted dolphin there. no spinners

 

 good luck hope you knock em dead

A chrome Roberts Ranger would be a good choice to bring along,

clear coat it with Devcon 30 minute epoxy, change the split ring , and the single hook to a 4X VMC treble.

At Tropic star, for inshore fishing, they were partial to the Shimano colt sniper lure, however the finish didn't hold up well after a few fish, the split rings and hooks were mediocre and needed to be changed,

and plug coated with Devcon.

I did quite well in Costa Rica with Roosters with the Roberts Ranger.

Good Luck

I would put all your reels in your carry on, spools of line in your checked in luggage. They view the line as a weapon. Returning from Costa Rica one year, I forgot to remove them, I was then instructed to remove the line from the spools, so I started on the first reel, after a few minutes, they had a change of heart and waved me on to the boarding area. Got lucky, almost 200.00 of braid.

You beat me to the punch with the Rangers! Like the tip on Devcon. I have around a dozen in chrome, white, red/white, orange, etc..

I also switched to Owner Stingers which are razor sharp.
