The Galapagos has been delivering 30 to 50 bites of tuna top water in the North of San Cristobal Island and double digit striped Marin on 0-30 Bank.

San Cristobal Island:

October 27, 2018– On The Hook fishing with Captain Gus Hernandez on 0-30 bank with guest from Argentina raised 16 striped marlin and related 7 fish out of 11 bites.

October 28 and 29, 2018– After catching a few marlin our guest from Argentina wanted to bend rods on top-water tuna. Sea conditions were a bit choppy but Captain Gus managed to deliver two fun filled days with 30 bites the first day and over 50 the second day fishing off the North drop of San Cristobal Island. The yellowfin tuna have begun to school on top feeding off flying fish making it easier to cast to.
