The Galapagos Islands have been producing an amazing marlin bite all year round. The banks around San Cristobal Island have been loaded with marlin and 0-30 Bank between San Cristobal and Santa Cruz islands has seen a terrific year. San Cristobal is the more dynamic island with many more places to fish.
However, some guest wanting to tour Santa Cruz have the option to fish 0-30 Bank. This past week the bite has not slowed and as we open up soon the 2020 prime season we are sure to see very good fishing. If you still don’t believe the double digit action we experience year round in the Galapagos then read the following report.
