Española Bank Is On Fire With Striped Marlin Frenzies!

Jan 28, 2021Fishing Reports

If you are looking for one of the best large striped marlin bites happening on the planet then you need to consider San Cristobal Island, Galapagos Islands. The marlin bite has been one of the most productive for over 22 years since Ecuagringo began operating the first charter boat in the Galapagos.

2021 has started very strong and we are now averaging 30 to 50 striped marlin raises. The sardines have become very thick in the last week on the banks. Diving birds, sea lions, sharks, dolphins and lots of striped marlin are feeding on the banks 30 miles South of San Cristobal. If you want to fish the world’s most productive water then you need to book now.
