Pedasi Fishing (www.pedasifishing.com) and Panama Fishing (www.panamafishing.net) principal Jose Goldner, is hoping to expose Pedasi as a world-class light tackle fishing destination. “Our goal is to expose foreign fishermen to the local fishing culture of Pedasi, Panama. We want people to fish out of Pangas, and keep the playing field even.” Goldner continues saying, “It’s also about preserving and appreciating the local fishing culture and its ways. We’re expecting a fantastic turnout for this year’s event and there is a mood amongst the local captains that’s revitalizing the small fishing village of Pedasi.” General Manager of Abernathy Panama (panamafishing.com.pa), Felipe Argote says “We were early believers in the potential of Pedasi and are delighted to see the increasing momentum in the Azuero region about Panama fishing."
The caliber and reputation of this competition has been bolstered by corporate endorsements, such as Yamaha, Penn, Shimano, Williamson, Yozuri, Rapala, Abernathy, Pedasi Fishing S.A., Panama Fishing S.A., Ocean Legacy S.A. and others. It is hoped that this national competition will be embraced by the cream of light tackle fishermen across the country, perhaps spurred by the chance to make it into the record books. The entrance fee is $75 per boat for all 3 days. For more information, please call. Brian Piantadosi, 507-67503461, or Jose Goldner 507-66731112.
