The past several weeks of fishing out of Manta, Ecuador have produced a very good striped marlin bite and now the blue marlin have shown up in good numbers. Captain Andres Calero provides us the latest report from Manta and the action going. The Galapagos is in the offseason now but we are still finding fish to catch such as tuna and wahoo.
September 21, 2018– Miura with Captain Andres Calero went 1/1 on blue marlin and 1/2 on striped marlin. Isabela went 1/1 on striped marlin and a nice wahoo.
September 22, 2018– Solo Mia 3/7 on blue marlin. Amalita 1/3 on blue marlin with fish wringing 527#. Chola went 1/3 on striped marlin and 0/1 on blue marlin. Adria went 2/2 on blue marlin. Isabela went 0/0.
September 21, 2018– On The Hook went out for a day of tuna and wahoo fishing around Punta Pitt and la Barcasa. They caught 10 nice wahoo from 30 to 55 pounds. Next they were able to pop for a few surface feeding tuna near La Barcasa and went 8/15 on yellowfin tuna from 35 to 65 lbs.
Folks the Galapagos prime season is just around the corner and we are close to being sold out on all our boats so don’t wait to book. Manta is happening now and we have boats available to fish last minute. We still have a few more open days for Isabela Island, Galapagos to try your luck for grander marlin. If you are looking for the best places to fish in South America then look no further. We have the family, friends or couple’s trip of a lifetime.
