Galapagos Islands Marlin & Tuna Fishing Report

Fellow Anglers,

There is no better bite for marlin happening on the planet at the moment. The Galapagos Islands may not get the exposure on social media that other destinations get due to slower internet.

However, anglers who have been fishing with us the last few years can relate to what it is to have multiple bites at one time, raise 20, 30, 50 and 100 plus marlin in a day and sea more marine life than almost anywhere else. Don’t take our word for it. Watch the testimonial by Jim Motzco himself here.

Ecuagringo team hosted 12 fishing club anglers from Ocean City, Maryland including Jim Motsko who is one of the main organizers of the World’s most prestigious billfish tournament the White Marlin Open.

In their words “there is nothing like the Galapagos on the planet”. Thanks to Glenn Mumbauer who kept records of bites and releases.

From January 11 to 15, 2020 these 12 anglers fishing onboard 3 boats (minus one down day for On The Hook) raised over 500 striped marlin and 10 blue marlin. They managed 389 bites and released 153 striped marlin and 6 blue marlin.

If these numbers of striped marlin averaging 120 to 200 pounds don’t impress you then nothing will. Boats experienced 30 to 65 raises of marlin per day for 5 days straight.

If you want to go then you need to contact us today. We are 80% booked for the prime season on our 3 boats. Take advantage of what we have left so you can experience the greatest marlin fishing on the planet happening now.
