Fellow Anglers,

Most days in April 2019, have been quite solid with incredible double digit bites on boats fishing. The slowest days have seen no less than 4 or 5 fish raised with the best days as many as 100 marlin raised. This month we have had anglers catch marlin on fly, spinning tackle, pitch baits and lures.

The Galapagos Islands are a place where you can try almost any type of sport fishing tactic you choose. Incredible day scenes of marine life, marlin feeding frenzies, bait balling, birds diving, sharks, sea lions, dolphins, whales, whale sharks, sea turtles and manta rays are frequently seen while fishing on the banks for marlin.
