Ecuagringo Marlin & Tuna Fishing Report, Feb 18-19 2020
Still not convinced after 20 years of constant reports that San Cristobal Island Galapagos produces the most consistent large striped marlin bite in the world?
If you want lots of shots at striped marlin 120 to 300 pounds then there is only one safe and family friendly place to go and that is San Cristobal Island, Galapagos. The action continues with our latest report thanks to Vertigo 2 and On The Hook.
San Cristobal Island, Galapagos Islands:
February 18, 2020: Vertigo 2 with our good friend Peter Santini and his group raised 23 striped marlin had 12 bites released 5 fishing Española Bank. On The Hook fishing the same are had a slower day with fish not cooperating.
They raised 4 and released 1/2 on pitch baits with Scott Hartley’s group. Crews have been nothing that fish have been very finicky even though there are plenty of marlin feeding on the surface and lots of sardines. As our old friend Captain Allan Starr would say “when it’s not your turn, it’s not your turn!”.
February 19, 2020: Vertigo 2 headed to 0-30 Bank. They raised 25 had 14 bites and released 6 striped marlin. On The Hook with Captain Julio Rodriguez raised 24 had 13 bites and released 6 striped marlin on pitch baits.
