For over 50 years, Tropic Star Lodge, situated on Piñas Bay, Panama, has been providing anglers with an unmatched fishing opportunity. The lodge stands 20 miles from the Colombian border and just minutes from the trophy-rich waters of the Pacific Ocean and 100 miles form the nearest road. Keeping the lodge running, maintaining the fleet of classic, 31 Bertrams, and providing a quality experience requires a lot of self sufficiency. Behind the scenes, the lodge maintains a full set of support services, including wood and metal shops, and boat repair and maintenance, from filters and electrical systems to transmissions and engines.
