The waters near continental Ecuador have begun to cool off in the South. Salinas is still seeing some striped marlin action but waters are down to 72-73 F. Manta farther to the North has cooled down to 77 F and still will be seeing some blue marlin action for another month or so. The Galapagos Islands has been a different story and things are holding quite well with godo action.
In the Galapagos the water remain warm with the warmest near Espanola with almost 81 F and a good striped marlin bite reported there in the past two week. Punta Pitt, 0-30 and 88 Bank all have perfect water temperatures and have been experiencing a good striped and blue marlin bite. Blacks marlin have not been as common this year as last year. However the best black bite was late March and most of April last year. Most guests have been targeting the striped marlin with boats reporting several days with double digit raises of striped marlin. Big eye tuna and wahoo have also been in solid numbers.
More to come soon. Don’t be left out of some of the World’s Best Marlin action so book now!
