San Cristobal Island
July 19, 2018– On The Hook fished with Team Ecuagringo. Junior angler Franco Escobar had his first shot at a striped marlin about 200# but marlin spit the hook on the run. Seas were very rough making fishing difficult. The team fished for 4 hours before heading back to port and raised 4 striped marlin with 1 bite. Fish were finicky probably due to the very slow troll because of sea chop making it difficult to navigate fast enough.
July 17, 2018– Panga Don Teofilio went 2/5 on blue marlin. Panga Explorer went 1/3 on blue marlin and 1/2 on striped marlin.
