2020 Marlin Releases: 653 | Bites: 1470 | Raises: 3197

The Galapagos Islands are located 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador on Northwest South America. The most popular island to fish for striped marlin is San Cristobal. The incredible abundance of marine life and upwellings caused by the various currents makes it a marlin massing hotspot.

Striped marlin 120 to 300 pounds come to feed in packs on the large populations of sardines. There are many banks, seamounts and drop offs to target striped, blue and black marlin. Striped marlin feeding on the surface is generally a daily occurrence.
