Galapagos Is Having A Very Good Offseason For Marlin!
The fishing out of Manta has picked up again the last week and the bite in Galapagos although offseason continues to impress with multiple raises in both destinations. The water is a bit cool which has triggered the striped marlin to bite both in Manta and Galapagos but slowed the blue and black marlin bites a bit.
Colder water than usual for this time of the year averaging 74 F has made the striped marlin become active but the blue marlin bite has slowed down. However the few blue that have been seen are said to be larger.
