The season in the Galapagos Islands has started and the marlin are showing in decent numbers on Rosa Blanca Bank. Sardines, gannets, porpoises and lots of sardines are shaping up for a potential another great year in the Galapagos.
January 22, 2019– Angler Wayne VanWey added a last minute extra day to fish Rosa Blanca Bank out of San Cristobal Island. He experienced some incredible striped marlin action the previous days of fishing and changed his original plans to visit Isabela Island to fish. Manta Raya with Captain Gus Hernandez fished and raised 5 striped marlin, had 3 bites and released 2. There was bait and life on the bank but fish just did not seem hungry.
January 24, 2019– Father and son group of Mike and Jim Ball fished onboard Manta Raya the Rosa Blanca Banks. Fishing with Captain Mike Crosier they raised 13 striped marlin had 11 bites and released 4.
January 25, 2019– Mike and Jim Ball returned to Rosa Blanca onboard Manta Raya. They lost a nice black marlin about 400# on the jumps. They raised 4 striped marlin and released 2. Bank was full of life and bait but fish were finicky to get to eat. Bite was later in the day.

Folks, don’t be left out. We have very few open dates left until April 2019 and 2020 is already starting to book up. If you want to fish with the outfitter that started it all back in 2001 in the Galapagos Islands then you need to book today.
This is one of the finest and hottest marlin fisheries on the planet and perhaps of the safest island destinations anywhere. Combine spectacular fishing with terrific dinning and the best adventure tours anywhere and you have a trip of a lifetime.
