Marlin & Tuna Fishing Report, Feb 5-7 2020
We are now close to 600 marlin releases for 2020 so far in the Galapagos Islands. This is our first year that we are keeping monthly and yearly totals. You can also check out our website www.ecuagringo.com for past reports and daily updates on releases, bites and raises.
There is no better striped marlin bite happening now reported anywhere in the world. If you want 10, 20, 30, 50 plus shots at marlin per day then now is the time to come. The action this week was on banks 0-30 and Española.
The weather has been fantastic with most days averaging 75 to 78 F making it very comfortable and seas have been calm. Lots of bait, birds, mahi mahi, dolphins and life on the banks. The crews have experienced double digit mahi mahi bites every day this week with some big mahi up to 55 pounds.
