The request for information has been incredible and dates will be sold on a first book basis so don be left out! Now is the time right after an El Niño event which happened to be part of some of the years when Glassell fished the area.

What To Expect:

How Is The Fishing?

Reports from commercial ships fishing offshore have show good tuna, bonito and even large marlin being caught as far South as the border with Chile. We keep in touch with several local artesanal fishermen who are also reporting catches of black, blue and striped marlin in the area.

While we don’t expect the fishing to be like it was 70 years ago we would not be putting together a trip of this magnitude if we did not believe there were shots at black and even blue marlin in the area.

Very few foreign game boats have attempted to fish Cabo Blanco in shorts stints in the last 70 years. However this year with and in 2024 is seeing an El Niño event which after our research shows similar conditions to what Glassell encountered in the mid fifties.
