The season is starting to change in the Galapagos and with the influx of currents, nutrients and bait come the wahoo and the striped marlin. Waters averaged 72/73 F
Nov 5, 2017– Jhonamar 2 reported going 11/20 on very nice wahoo while fishing Hancock Bank. The biggest wahoo weighed 88# and most fish averaged 30 to 65#. A couple of bonita and a nice big eye tuna about 45# made it for a rod bending day.
Nov 6, 2017– Jhonamar 2 headed for 0-30 Bank in search of big eye tuna. They raised 4 striped marlin on the bridge teasers but were focused on tuna so the anglers were not interested in marlin. They went 6/9 on big eye tunas averaging 35 to 75#. The tuna made for delicious fresh sashimi.
