The last two weekends, our northern coastline has seen most of the Marlin bite. Now that the colder weather has reached us, we are seeing the typical season movements of fish.
More noticeably in Manta, the boats have had from 3 to 5 strikes per day of Blue Marlin. Water temperatures are averaging 77F – 78F
It is really impressive to see that almost 90% of all attacks are of Blue Marlin. A small percentage belongs to Sailfish and Stripped Marlin. We are also seeing several Blue Marlin populations, and in some days, their weight reaches 400 and 600 pounds, the rest of the days we see the 200 pounders. Not to mention the fact that 5 boats went to the Cope bank and feasted on Wahoo, with up to 15 per boat. Definitely the #1 Wahoo spot in the world.
While in Salinas we saw Blue Marlin 10 miles of the coast the last couple of months, in Manta we have seen the attacks coming at the same distance from Cabo San Lorenzo, the furthest point in that area.
Apparently, the Marlin behavior will remain the same until the current changes again. Hopefully, we’ll see many more Blue Marlin and some Black Marlin too. All anglers are anxious to see what happens.

Luv ya Luis, but gotta tell you it's tough fishing with artisanals killing everything they catch. Makes me wonder why we bother?
