Blue marlin eating it up in Manta and the tunas swarming the Galapagos!

Fellow Anglers,

The fishing continues to be promising in Manta with blue marlin and the Galapagos is having an awesome tuna bite. Cooler than usual water conditions on Ecuador’s coast and in Galapagos for this time of the year has mixed up the marlin bite but the fishing has still been quite steady. Salinas has seen some action from wahoo and even black marlin with the unusually cooler waters.



Dec 26, 2017– Panga Mazinger went 1/1 on a nice black marlin around 500# and 1/2 on blue marlin and 1/1 on striped marlin. Panga Mario went 2/2 on blue marlin and 1/2 on striped marlin.

Dec 27-28, 2017– Amalita tallied 2/7 on blue marlin in a combined two days fishing and 1/5 on striped marlin.


Dec 27, 2017– Mari Lou went 5/9 on wahoo and 1 black marlin around 300#

Galapagos Islands

San Cristobal

Dec 28, 2017– On the Hook fishing with Harish Virhia and his wife had an excellent day fishing for tunas going 3/7 on poppers with tunas 20 to 40#. Captain Gus mentioned that Mr. Virhia fought a larger big eye estimated over a 100# that pulled the hook.
