Best Blue Marlin Fishing in the World
Then you need to fish the Galapagos Islands. Isabela Island has been a yearly producer of huge blue marlin and even some really big monster black marlin. Fishing starts just 7 miles out of Puerto Villamil, Isabela Island before waters drop from 700 to over 2000 feet. Keep fishing your way out and you will soon be in 6,000, 9000 and 12,000 feet deep water.
The amount of tuna, bonito, squid and sardines that congregate in the upwellings of the Isabela ledges and drops attract the apex billfish predators. Mainly the larger female blue marlin come here to feed from December to May when water temperatures reach 75 F and above.
Most anglrrs book February to May for warmest and calmest season. Average days will be 1 or 2 raises of blue marlin 500 to 900 pounds with grander marlin in the mix.
