Fishing Offshore Isabella Island Galapagos
Isabella is the largest Island in the Galapagos, however its population is quite small compared to its size. Unlike more populated islands like San Cristobal or Puerto Ayora, Isabella retains a charm by its small town feel. The streets are still dirt and there are only a few cars on the island. Since there are not so many cars, each car is effectively a cab. There is a small fisherman's coop made up of mainly commercial fisherman, however you can hire a boat to go Eco Fishing.
The fishing is good! Mainly made up of 20-30Lb yellowfin and 30-60Lb wahoo. Most fisherman here fish with a hand line wrapped a few times around the seat of a boat, so I would recommend bringing your own gear.
