Reported by Vertigo 2 and Peter Santini
The water has warmed up to 79 and 80 F in most of the Galapagos. Our friend Peter Santini has been fishing hard aboard Vertigo 2 on Española Bank Southeast of San Cristobal Island. The fish have started to show more aggression and he has averaged 15 to 20 bites per day from Feb 23 to 27, 2022.
Santini has reported raising a black marlin and releasing 2 blue under 400# in the same 5 days of fishing. There has been sardines, birds and sea lions present on the bank making it quite a sight for the eyes to feast on.
