The marlin bite is slow which is not unusual for this time of the year. Colder green water pushes the marlin much further out but we can expect it to get much better in May and begin to peak in June as water will warm up a bit and cleaner water should move in.

Folks don’t be left out of the incredible tuna bite in the Galapagos Islands and book you 2019 trip of a lifetime now. We still have space available for the summer blue marlin run out of Manta. Contact us today to put together your custom fishing package.
