Feb 3, 2019Fishing Reports

Fellow Anglers,

As with any world class destination there will always be nay-sayers and haters talking crap and doubting our numbers. One of the things we take pride in our reports since 2001 is that we try to put to the best of our knowledge the good, the bad and the ugly. Yes, fishing as good as it can be does have its slow days in the Galapagos.

We have had a fantastic run since April 2018 with incredible marlin and tuna numbers. This last week we had Rick Riggle and Steven Hurt fishing with Captain Mike Crosier.
