San Cristobal Island/Galapagos

Our crews are all local fishermen that work on catching lobsters and catching fish for local fish markets. They have been reporting lots of currents mixing with balls of sardines that we have not seen in over 5 years. Water temperatures have ranger 72 to 74 F the last week making it ideal conditions for striped marlin, tuna and wahoo. Several captains while doing other tourist activities have reported seeing several striped marlin tailing while navigating to tourist sites. We did not have a charter the last few days so we will be reporting on the action on our next report with several charters coming up.

Keep those reels screaming!
