Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo and Swordfish Fishing Reports!

December 22-23, 2017

Fellow Anglers,

Hard to believe Christmas is finally here and with it almost another year of incredible fishing action for South America has flown by.



December 22, 2017– The currents changed back to pushing South and sea conditions were actually quite nice for fishing. Panga Mazinger went 2/3 on blue marlin including a nice fish over 500#. Panga Don Teofilo went 1/2 on blue marlin, 1/1 on a black marlin and 0/1 on striped marlin.

Galapagos Islands:

San Cristobal Island

December 22, 2017– Jhonamar 2 had a terrific big eye tuna bite fishing the Barcasa on the North part of San Cristobal. They caught 13 big eye tunas while trolling light tackle and 2 wahoo.

December 23, 2017– Jhonamar 2 fished out of Punta Pitt near one of the FAD buoys searching for marlin. Water was still a bit too cold for blue and black marlin with the unusually cold water for this time of the year. They still managed to release a nice striped marlin in about 2 hours of fishing before fishing for mahi-mahi on the FADs and catching about a dozen that would make for a great dinner.
