Offseason Bite Going Strong!

Aug 19, 2019Fishing Reports

Fellow Anglers,

We are in the “offseason” now so to speak but that has not slowed down the marlin, tuna and wahoo bites that are happening now out of San Cristobal Island, Galapagos Islands. If you are looking for a destination where you can target marlin, tuna, wahoo, groupers, jacks and bottom fish all in the same trip then it gets no better than the Galapagos Islands.

Prime season for all species runs December to June but we have striped marlin, wahoo, tuna and grouper all year. It’s never too early to plan your trip with the first and most trusted outfitter in the Galapagos Islands. The Galapagos are safe for the whole family with virtually no crime and tours/activities for everyone to enjoy.

Call us today and talk to our staff who will explain every detail of this incredible experience. Isabela Island is not a high volume marlin place but the abundance of marine life and the size of the fish make it special. Our 2019 trial did not disappoint with a combined 8 days of marlin fishing on Isabela went 2/3 on blue marlin over 1000#, and raised 9 other blue marlin 300 to 900# plus caught several striped marlin, mahi mahi and tuna.
