Marlin, Tuna and Swordfish Fishing Reports!

December 2-5, 2017

Fishing continues to be good in most destinations out of Ecuador for the past week. The Galapagos Islands have experienced some unusually rough seas for December but the tuna, wahoo & grouper bite has excelled.



December 1, 2017– Our good friend and angler JR Martin chartered a 29 ft sportfisher accompanied by a mothership to provide fuel and supplies and fished a bank almost 95 miles West of Manta. Arriving close to mid day our good friend reported immediate action as soon as teasers were in the water. They raised 8 striped marlin on the Northside of the bank within 2 hours of fishing and released 5. By 3:40 pm they hooked into an estimated 900 blue marlin which they fought until night before loosing it just feet from the leader. Sea conditions were a bit choppy making it hard to maneuver at night.

December 2, 2017– JR had lines in the water by 6:10 am and was hooked up by 6:30 on a double of striped marlin. As the day played out they went 2/5 on blue marlin and 3/9 on striped marlin. By 1 pm it was time to start heading back for port.


December 2, 2017– Mary Lou reported with guest from Argentina going 0/5 on blue marlin and 1/3 on striped marlin plus seeing 5 more tailing striped marlin.
