Why Target The Striped Marlin High Numbers?

Want to practice your pitching, more shots to set hooks with lures or like casting a popper to a surface teasing marlin?  What about teasing up a striped marlin and casting a fly for a perfect clearwater bite? More constant raises of marlin allow you to practice more, have more shots and keep you entertained throughout the day.  Doubles, triples and quadruple hookups are possible and quite common in the Galapagos.  Our striped marlin fishery is year round so you can plan a trip whenever it is convenient for you.

Why Target The Giant Blue Marlin?

Some anglers want the ultimate challenge and there is perhaps none greater than doing battle with one of the biggest gamefish in the waters of the Pacific.  Blue marlin can grow over 1000 pounds but areas where to find such large fish are getting more rare. Isabela Island in the Galapagos attracts more giant female blue marlin than almost anywhere else in the Pacific.  Most fish average 400 to 900 pounds with an estimated 1000 pounds plus fish coming into the spread about every 7 days of fishing from past statistics.
