Galapagos Islands

San Cristobal Island

May 20, 2018– On The Hook with Captain Gus Hernandez went with the crew to try out new tackle and get a fishing report. They fished 0-30 Bank and found it loaded again with sardines. The crew raised 33 striped marlin and 3 blue marlin to the teasers. They did not attempt to catch any fish as they were trying to get footage and practice with a drone which unfortunately crashed in the water and was useless. They only fished for 5 hours on the bank and left about 1 pm but Captain Gus mentioned that he saw more than 100 tailing striped marlin throughout the day.

More reports to come this week from Galapagos as the On The Hook will be fishing again with guest.
