    Fishing Puerto Vallarta

    Fall report

    The fall fishing here in Puerto Vallarta is one of the best times to fish in Puerto Vallarta if not the best.

    For short trips there are yellowtails, bonita, snapper, Spanish mackerel and many other game fish in the bay.  These trips are perfect for those who don’t want to spend all day on the water.  The length of these trips would be 4 to 6 hrs.

    For folks that want to fish for sailfish and mahi mahi the fishing is great just offshore.  The water is still warm and holds mahi mahi also know as dorados here in Mexico.  The best bet is to fish one of the current lines ( trash lines )  early in the morning for dorados and then in the afternoon go for the sailfish.  November is the very best month for sailfish here in Puerto Vallarta fishing.

    For fishermen that want to go for the big tuna and marlin the action is always hot this time of the year offshore.  There are three main fishing spots we fish during this time of the year.  The corbetena is one of the best and can be done in 10 hrs if you on the right boat.  That means be sure you have a good sportfisher that can at least cruise at 15 knots and if not rent a good boat.  The next place that holds big tuna and marlin is El Banco which is 50 miles offshore and most of the really big fish come from this spot.  It’s an underwater knoll that rises from 800 feet of water to just 50 feet and holds bait there almost year round.  All the fish big game hunters are looking to catch are here.  If you fish El banco 10 times 9 times you will come home with the fish  of a lifetime.

    The ultimate fishing grounds is known as Las Marias.  Here is one of the top 10 places to fish  in the world.  The islands are 80 miles offshore and we do 2.5 day trips out to the islands for the trip you will never forget.  I been there numerous times and have never had a bad trip there.  They hold tuna, sailfish, marlin, dorados, snapper and all the above in great numbers.  These islands are restricted as where we can fish, as Mexico had a penal system there that holds about 3000 inmates.  There are four islands and the fishing here is great year round.

  • Puerto Vallarta fishing report summer 2014

    Puerto Vallarta fishing report summer 2014

    Summer time is here and the fishing is heating up in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.  

     

     

    During the months of June through October we have some of the best fishing in the world. In the month of June usually around the 15 th . Of the month we get rains every day about 6 to 7 pm in the evening. This is a good thing as it cools everything off and creates superb fishing in and outside the bay.

    Capt. Pete

    Summer time fishing in the bay can produce a lot of action with bonita,yellowtail,tuna,mahi mahi and even sailfish. This is because the water temperature reaches about 80 deg. And stays there until the winter months roll around. There will usually be a trash line that is created from all the stuff that come out of the rivers here in Puerto Vallarta and surrounding areas. We have 5 rivers that feed into the bay here. Early morning fishing on this trash line can put ya on mahi mahi and selfish almost everyday. Be sure and have lots of live bait. Trolling with lures and sewn baits such as mullets work great as well. These bay trips are great for the families or someone looking to catch a trophy fish.

    For those who are serious about catching the big one such as marlin and tuna summer is the best time be fishing the outside of the bay. With the water temperature around 80 deg. There are schools of bonitos everywhere and the marlin and tuna follow them here to Puerto Vallarta. Just out past the Maritas,Corbetena and El Banco are just a few of the places we fish for the big ones. Plan on a 10 to 12 hr day for the marlin and tuna trips. As you can see summer time fishing in Puerto Vallarta can not be beat so come on down and wet and line and have a cold one.

  • Puerto Vallarta Fishing Ceviche Recipe

    The fishing remains strong here in Puerto Vallarta fishing.

    Capt. Pete has had many requests for the ceviche recipe we make on the boat DOS AMIGOSDOS AMIGOS

    Here’s what ya need to get started for 6 people :

    1. 1 lb. of white fish: here are a few that can be used – dorados ( AKA mahi- mahi)  red snapper, Spanish mackerel,halibut, flounder, or a combination of 1/2 lb white fish and 1/2 lb of shrimp.

    2. 15 limes or  lemons.  I always use limes

    3.  cilantro          use the whole bunch ( chopped fine )

    4. 6 tomatos ( med) deseeded

    5.  1 red bell pepper, 1 green bell pepper, 1 yellow bell pepper, 1 orange bell pepper  chopped/deseeded

    6. 1 large onion  white, red, yellow what ever flavor you like

    7. 1  large carrot  grated

    8. fresh ground pepper

    9. fresh ground sea salt

    10. Maggi cocktail sauce or soy sauce

    11. olive oil

    12. couple of peppers your choice  chopped depending on hot you like it !!! JALAPENOS ARE GOOD

    13. tostados

    14. avocados 2 large

    15. 2 large plastic bowls with tops

    16. large cutting board

    17. couple of beers for drinking while you make the ceviche

    step 1 chop fish or shrimp in small pieces nothing larger that 1/4 inch

    this will help the limes cook the fish/shrimp faster

    step 2 put in plastic bowl and squeeze  limes over all the fish, just enough to cover the fish/shrimp

    step 3 put in refrigerator , then should be stirred several times over the next 45 min while preparing

    the vegetables

    step 4.  chop all the vegetables into 1/4 inch pieces

    step 5  put all vegetables into the second plastic bowl

    step 6 check your fish that has been in the refrigerator for 45 min, by now the fish/shrimp should have changed color, they should be a white color now.  If not leave them in the refrigerator a few more min.  ( don’t use to many limes- this will make your ceviche taste like limes )

    step 7 mix the shrimp/fish and vegetables in large bowl , add fresh ground salt and fresh ground pepper

    STEP 8  put in 2 table spoons of soy sauce or maggi cocktail sauce and mix

    step 9  you can add 2 table spoons of olive oil as well ( optional )

    step 10 put in refrigerator for 15 min and serve on tostado with wedge of avocado

    step 11 add your favorite store bought hot sauce on top of tostado and serve

    This is the one we like to make on the boat DOS AMIGOS for our clients

    ENJOY

    Puerto Vallarta Fishing Report

    June 13, 2014

    Tuna fishing remains hot on longer trips!!!


    The summer fishing is just around the corner. The water temp is holding around 85 deg and blue water in most places. If you can’t get to the blue water that is holding bait the chances are not good for big game fishing here in Puerto Vallarta. Some days the run has been short but others plan on around 1 hrs. I’ve been using terrafin and plotting courses before we leave the dock. This cuts down on the time we need to find where the fish are feeding. This information along with what we did the day before is the best knowledge you can have when going after big game.

    Right now there are marlin, tuna, sailfish and dorados here in Puerto vallarta fishing. Last week the tuna were at the banco ( 50 miles offshore ) and you need to plan on a 12 hr trip to catch these. The marlin were hanging around the Corbetena which is a 10 hr trip but can turn into a 12 hr trip depending on the action. Some folks just don’t want to leave when they see all the action the fishing spot has to offer. The large bonitas ( 5 to 10 lbs ) we use for the big tuna and marlin work really well for pargos around the rocks at Corbetena and Banco. A simple slow drift with whole or bonita work best. If we have live bonitas we will put them down first.

    The sailfish have been in and outside the bay the last few days. These trips can be done in 8 hrs. Best bet is to work the chlorophyll break line where we know the blue water meets the slightly off color water, works great for catching the dorados ( mahi-mahi dolphin ) as well .

    The inshore fishing has been a mixed bag. Some days finding mahi mahi and sails in the bay and just outside. The bonitas have been all over the bay. The jack cerville are schooling in and just outside the bay. These trips can be done in 4 to 6 hrs.

    Come on down and wet a line with us.

    Banderas Bay offers the most water of any resort in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.

    Being the largest natural bay (bahia) in Mexico, it’s no wonder it is home to the Humpback Whales who come to Vallarta every year to have their young. Giant Manta rays, Sea Turtles and Dolphins can be found year round. Nuevo Vallarta is also home to some of the best year around Big Game Fishing in the world! Coming soon we will have the November Sailfish and marlin Championships  .  The Puerto Vallarta sport fishing  has been super fantastic this year, we have seem more sailfish, marlin and mahi-mahi   than any year before.  All of our deep sea fishing Puerto Vallarta trips have been hot with lots of fish boated everyday. The great weather we have been having has really heated up the deep sea fishing and we have had great sailing cruise here in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.. The sunset cruises  here in Vallarta have been offering spectacular sunsets that are some of the best of the year.

    We offer some of the very best Puerto Vallarta excursions all year round at discount prices.
