Captain Carlos Valdez has fished the local waters of Panama over 14 years. From the age of 6 with his father’s guidance Carlos found his passion for fishing. At the age of seventeen, he naturally found himself working on some of the local commercial fishing boats.

After serving as a mate for 6 years and being extensively trained at several sport fishing lodges Carlos acquired his Captain’s license.
