ECUADOR: Manta Marlin Fishing Report December

The color of the water has remained dark blue and temperature has been a constant 73 F average. Winds have calmed down greatly making most days a very nice ride. Boats have been experiencing 2 to 8 striped marlin raises per day on average and a blue about every other day. Local artisanal fishermen troll on their 28 foot skiffs at 13-15 knots with teasers and switching to baits when the marlin show up. They have reported catching two granders in the last week. Exact details are not clear but this is a common occurrence as these people fish almost everyday and cover lots of ground. The international market price of marlin is higher than ever which sadly puts a demand on these wonderful fish. If you are thinking about fishing Manta don't hesitate to book.
The bite has not been as strong as it was last year but it has still been quite reliable.
