Guayaquil Gulf/Estuary Fishing

Galapagos Islands

San Cristobal

June 18, 2017– On the Hook with Jay White and his wife Michelle, son Jacob and daughter Ericka had a combine day of fishing, beaches and snorkeling. A little for everyone. They fished the buoy out of Punta Pitt which was loaded with mahi mahi but would not feed with water 70 F. It was a fund day that did not center mainly on fishing.

June 20, 2017– On the Hook travelled to Espanola Banks with the White family. They raised no marlin until 13:00 so they headed to Pescador just off San Cristobal Island for a fun afternoon going 2/4 on large wahoo 75# and 65# and 2/4 on big eye tunas around 25#. These were the largest wahoo Jay and Jacob have ever caught.
