Galapagos Islands Ecuagringo Marlin & Fishing Report

The last week has been very productive with an average 20 to 40 plus raises per day of large striped marlin on Española Banks.  The 30 to 35 mile run South of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno from San Cristobal Island has been the winning ticket most days this year when targeting striped marlin.

Vertigo 1 and Patrica have been at it targeting striped marlin last few days.  0-30 Bank was loaded with mahi mahi but no marlin.  Isabela Island saw blue marlin for less than 5 days where only 2 blue marlin were seen in the spread.  One fish was estimated over 800# and got bill wrapped.
