Just a week ago the fishing was slow with 1 to 5 raises average of striped marlin. Water was green and there was plenty of chlorophyll. Fishing was slower than it had began in January with double digit raises many days. Well, February 10, 2019 was another incredible day to show that the fish are in the Galapagos.
