For the folks willing to fish the so called “off season” in the Galapagos found themselves handsomely rewarded. Due to El Niño striped and blue marlin were reported in the spread. San Cristobal Island numbers continue to be solid this summer out of Rosa Blanca and Española banks.
San Cristobal Island
July 29, 2023– Johnamar went out with a local group from Ecuador to fish Rosa Blanca Bank. They found good water and lots of life. Sea lions, birds and striped marlin feeding on the surface baitballs around the Honey Hole. The action started as soon as they arrived it was not even 5 minutes before they had 4 striped marlin in the spread.
Fishing was pretty solid until about 2 pm when it seemed to shut off. Water was reported 78 F. They raised 38 striped marlin had 22 bites and released 7. One blue marlin estimated around 400 came on a bridge teaser but would not switch over to eat anything. Most striped marlin were said to be 150 to 200 pounds.
July 27, 2023– Ecuagringo mate Oscar Intriago took his panga to fish 10 to 15 miles out of Isabela with two rods. He went 1/2 on striped marlin and missed a nice blue marlin about 500 pounds. He managed to catch a nice mahi mahi but could not get any yellowfin tuna to bite. The warm waters due to El Niño event are keeping the blue marlin around late in the year.
