90 miles north of Salinas is Manta. It is important to state that it has always been an important angling destination. We only need to mention Jorge "Pancho" Jurado and his 1,014, 17 years world record, blue marlin caught out in Manta on May 12, 1985. The waters around "Isla de la Plata", which is about 25 miles off Manta, had registered many world fishing records, including several billfishes, groupers and the current Makerel Pacific Sierra established on March 24, 1990.
We have been successfully running the operation of a Sportfishing Center that provides exclusively Hatteras and Bertram, first class hotel and accommodations at affordable prices and a crew with more than 20 years of experience. All of our equipment is Penn International, and we also have some Finn Noors reels. We practice Tag & Release with all billfish.
