Traveling Fisherman - Galapagos 2011

After a significant research effort and logistical planning we are pleased to announce the latest exotic fishing expedition for the Traveling Fishermen program. One of our many goals with this program is to plan, organize and offer unique fishing excursions to our OIFC fishing friends.  When I first began researching new destinations for the Traveling Fisherman I knew we had a lot to live up to after the super succesful trip to Panama in 2008.  Not just any destination or operation would suffice.  Fortunately I was able to locate Capt. Pete Santini and his fishing operation on San Cristobal Island in the Galapagos.  I stayed in contact with Capt. Pete through the winter fishing season and his daily reports were more than enough to convince me this was the spot we needed to go.  The Galapagos Islands are known for their tremendous array of wildlife including perhaps their most famous inhabitants the enormous turtles.  These islands are those that Charles Darwin wrote about in his journals describing the creatures as of not of this planet.  Little did many know that the sportfishing was equally as "wild" just offshore of the islands.  The biggest sport fishing draw is the abundance of marlin.  On numerous occassions this winter Capt. Pete reported more than 20 shots at marlin and on several days over 40 shots.  They catch mostly stripes, but blacks and blues are not at all uncommon.  In addition there is a great giant big eye tuna run, plenty of yellowfin tuna and wahoo
