Fellow Anglers,

If you are wondering what is happening in the Galapagos now that it is the off-season; well we still have some big striped marlin around. Many fish reported 200 too 300# range. Warm waters are still pushing around Northern parts of Galapagos which could bring blue and black marlin for those who look for them. Manta, Ecuador is delivering a solid July with big blue marlin and good numbers. Follow the Ecuagringo Fishing Team as they head to photograph and video the action in the Galapagos Islands next week.
