Just a Baby - above and below left, Jim Chambers' first black marlin, estimated at 400 lbs., caught on 50-pound stand-up and released over Hannibal Bank (a submerged mountain) near the island of Coiba, on Panama's Pacific coast.� (See Black Marlin - page 3)  It was caught on a great trip in May 2000 with Capt. Tom Yust, owner and operator of Coiba Adventure that became a feature story entitled "Pacific Panama's Personal Side" by Editor-in-Chief, Doug Olander, which was published in the December 2000 issue of Sport Fishing Magazine.� Many photos of that trip are presented in the excellent new Coiba Adventure website.� Also see our yellowfin tuna photo section for pictures of the 225-pound beast we got the previous afternoon at Hannibal Bank. We are pictured, struggling to lift it aboard, on the cover of Sport Fishing Magazine's October 2001 issue. (Photos, D. Olander)

Live Moon Phase Display

Daily "Kill-o-Meter"

Longliners fish most heavily during the periods when the moon is brightest. So, this real-time image of the moon phase shows when the kill of swordfish is greatest and least. It also shows when the kill of blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, sharks, tunas, sea turtles, marine mammals and a host of other marine life is also greatest - even though they are not even targeted. For more, see link above.
