Ecuagringo Galapagos Islands Marlin & Tuna Report

Fellow Anglers,

If you are tired of fishing places where the bite is less than what you hoped for, then the Galapagos Islands should be your next destination. February has started and the phenomenal double digit striped marlin bite continues. The numbers of striped marlin continue to be outstanding.

No other place in the world has been 4 years running offering such consistent marlin fishing as San Cristobal Island in the Galapagos Islands. The various banks and seamounts around the island provide anglers options to fish many different areas. The abundance of marine life are a show in itself.

When you fish in the Galapagos Islands you get much more than great fishing. You make memories that last you a lifetime! Thanks to our good friend Peter Santini from http://sportfishgalapagos.com/ the only other fishing outfitter we would recommend. Santini provided us with his report from Vertigo 2.

Folks if you are not planning your next fishing trip of a lifetime to the Galapagos Islands then you might as well be like a fish out of water. Besides the incredible marlin bite out of San Cristobal Island you can also enjoy bottom fishing, wahoo, tuna and more.

This is one of the safest and family oriented destinations on the planet where you can relax, tour, swim with sea lions, sharks, sea turtles, penguins and reef fish.
