• Puerto Vallarta fishing report April

    Puerto Vallarta fishing is in full swing.  The sardines have arrived along with choras.  This is great on so may levels.  The sardines bring the mahi mahi , sailfish, stripped and other game fish close to our beautiful shores and bay.   When the bait movement comes here and hangs out for long period of time this means only one thing.  Great fishng in Puerto vallarta.  The sailfish , mahi mahi aka dorados, and stripped marlin all have a water temperature that they like to swim in.  Just like us when we take a bath.  We all have a temperature we like the water to be.  Will so do fish.  This is one of the main reasons we are checking the water and pacific ocean water temps.  These fish love to be in the perfect water temperature.

    There’s one factor that will keep fish in a location or move them to another location.  Food yes food.  Bait.  No matter what the water temp is or the color of the water.  If the bait is there ya have a great chance to land the big one that most folks are fishing for here in Puerto Vallarta.  When we find the bait that these pelagic fish love we have hit a home run.  We love these conditions are the fish are thick and there for the catching.  I use terrafin  for all of our boats.  If it’s one of our super pangas 28 ft., or med size sportfishers 32 ft. or one of the 40 ft sportfishers with everything included.

    The choras we caught today are a good sign that the big fish are here and coming to stay.  The big tuna and marlin love to eat the 5 to 10 lbs choras.  Bait for us that fish for these big guys.  Ya must have a good boat that has tuna tubes are you are just wasting your time. If you can find the big baits and load up the tuna tubes your chances of catching a big marlin have increased ten fold.  When the water temp start rising and the two favorites baits start showing up these means game on for fishing here in Puerto vallarta.  The blue marlin and black marlin will be here and so will the best fishing in the world.  Come down and try your hand of catching one of these trophy fish that run in these waters of the Pacific ocean and the are that surround Puerto vallarta.

    This last week the bay fishing was hot for snapper, yellowtail, Spanish mackerel and other game fish.  Best bet was 6 hrs in the bay on one of our super pangas for smaller groups or one of the larger boats for 4 or more people wanting to fish here in Puerto Vallarta.

    The offshore action has be incredible.  The stripped marlin have been hanging around for the bait that I described above along with sailfish.  These trips can be done in 8 hrs or    maybe a little more time.  It’s best to call and speak with Capt. Peter Vines toll free to plan your fishing charter here in Puerto Vallarta before you come down to find the right boat and the best trip for you and family.

  • Puerto Vallarta fishing report April 2018

    Puerto Vallarta fishing report starts off with some incredible news. All fishing grounds are closed until farther notice. April’s fools just kidding the fishing is great and the marlin action is off the charts. The offshore fishing action could not be better. We fished on the north side of Puerto Vallarta including the Punta Mita fishing grounds and we were seeing sailfish and marlin in all the right spots. These pelagic fish were biting on black bart lures trolled around 7 to 8 knots. The very best bite was on live pitch baits. We are sight vesting these giant fish while trolling out best lure along with some hot teasers. If we can’t raise them with the teasers we are throwing the pitch baits when we see them finning. I cast over a hundred times yesterday so be sure and bring your power bars or what ever you use for that extra energy. puerto vallarta fishing chartersYou will need it fishing this time of the year. I almost forgot to mention the yellowtail AKA jack carevalles are tearing up the water. With catching 10 sailfish and marlin a day we landed 40 of these strong fighting fishing all in the 20 to 30 lbs. class. My repeat clients requested and early return to the dock after so many billfish and the fantastic action we were having on light tackle with all the jack cerevalles we caught yesterday. There we light winds and for the most the seas were flat like most of our clients like them. April fishing means the beginning of spring and lot of sardines and other boat fish show up around our shores. This is the number # 1 reason all of these billfish are holding in Puerto vallarta and Punta Mita. The water temp is around 77 deg. And the stripped marlin love this tempeture. It would be nice if we had the perfect blue water but these fish follow the bait and water temperatures before looking for blue water. Looking at the terrafin charts along with my thirty so odd years for fishing here the blue water will be following the bait and the fishing will be hot for Puerto vallarta this spring.
    This spring break we had so many family and young men/girls on our boats. I was happy to see the bay fishing producing so many fish. All of the fishng trips in Puerto Vallarta were successful . The bay fishing is hot with some Spanish mackerel, bonita, snapper,yellowtail and even a few marlin the last few days.

    Took eleven year old Jack out and his family and he landed a 9 ft stripped marlin on one of our six hour trips. His first big fish and what a way to start your fishing career off with a marlin just off Punta Mita. The water inside the bay has been clam with light winds. The temperature is around 80 degrees in afternoon . The water temperature is holding in the high seventy’s. The bay fishing here I Puerto Vallarta will remain strong and the weather should be perfect.
    If you are a family or a couple looking for action here in Puerto Vallarta we can help you with 28 ft. super pangas all the way up to 100 ft. larger yachts.

  • Puerto Vallarta Fishing Spring break

    Puerto Vallarta fishing spring fishing has started off with a blast.  The fish are hanging around and I mean big fish like marlin.  The stripped marlin having been feeding all over the offshore fishing spots just to the north of us.  Some days we have had 10 to 15 hook ups. This is counting the sailfish, marlin, and dorados that the fleet has been catching.  The best trip are 8 to 10 hrs outside of the bay.  The best method has been pitch baits and skipping baits.  Last week we had 4 marlin on at the same time.  What a show and fun for everyone onboard.  Sure wish I would have had the gopro turned on for that one.

    The bay fishing is still strong like the offshore fishing in Puerto Vallarta.  The best trips have been 6 hrs catching Spanish mackerel and Bonita for cooking or making cerchive.  The yellowtail have been so thick I lose count on how many hook ups we have having each bay.  Be sure and take plenty of live bait as you can hook these big fish four at a time as well.  They range from 5 to 30 lbs. and are one of the toughest fish out there for fun fishing action.  Pound for pound the best fish to catch.  We caught 15 of the fighters yesterday but released all of them.  You may want to take some back to hotel but if not it’s best to release these great fish.

    The Puerto Vallarta  whale watching is still off the charts.  There must be still 300 humpback whales here in Puerto Vallarta Mexico with their new calves.  These babies are 10 feet long and just love to play all day long but then who wouldn’t ???  The whales are here for several months from November to past April every year and put on quite a show for us out on whale watching and also all of our Puerto Vallarta fishing charters.

    The weather is perfect the fish are biting and the people here are some of  the most friendly in the world.  Come to Puerto Vallarta fishing charters and make some memories and new friends along the way

  • Puerto Vallarta fishing February

    Puerto Vallarta fishing February has started off with marlin, sailfish and some mahi mahi action.  The water has cooled down a bit but is still sitting around 75 to 80 deg. In most places inshore and offshore.   The offshore bite has been great around 5 to 7 miles offshore.  The best spots have been where we are finding the right thermoclines along with the blue water the pelagic game fish such as marlin , sailfish and mahi mahi enjoy feeding in.  You may ask how do I find these spots to fish in or make sure at least your charter Captain in Puerto Vallarta will know this information.  There are several ways to obtain this information.  We gather information from all of our boats daily ,our competitors and use one of the online services that we pay a yearly fee to receive this info.  We gather the  chlorophyll, altimetry, currents and surface tempeture.  With this info along with direct contact with all our charter Captains here in Puerto Vallarta we have a good idea where we can catch that next trophy for our clients.  It’s no wonder we bring in more trophy fish than the other charter boats each year.  If you are looking for a big marlin, sailfish or mahi mahi our company Puerto Vallarta fishing charters can’t be beat for the price and service we offer.  Some of the best baits right now are the live goggle eye on the slow troll.  The mullet sewn up with a hot lure on top is also producing several fish.  The black bart lures are tearing the water up the last couple of weeks along with Joe Yee, marlin magic and Pakula lumo.  These are year in and year out the best offshore lures for fishing the Mexican waters here in Puerto Vallarta. 

    The inshore or bay fishing is maintaining a strong bite up by Punta Mita and Nuevo Vallarta fishing.  The best bet has been fishing the incoming tides or out going tides for some Spanish mackerel, bonitas, yellowtail,barracuda and some other game fish.  Another good producing fishing spot has been down my mismaloya beach.  The water has been just right catch a few snapper on the slow troll with live goggle eye the sizes have ranging from a few lbs. to 10 lbs.  Great eating fish and fantastic to catch.  Punta negra has also supplying some nice Spanish mackerel up to 5 lbs.  These are the very best for ceviche and we try and make this each day for our clients.  The recipe for our famous Puerto Vallarta ceviche is on the website as we have had so many requests. 

    So besides having superb fishing offshore and inshore in several of our favorite fishing spots the marina life in the bay is the best it’s been in 20 years.

    Along with catching all kind of fish

    Everyone who comes to Puerto Vallarta in February will have the chance to see the humpback whales,  spotted bottle nose dolphin, sea turtles and huge manta rays.  The show the whales put on each day is a special bonus each day for fishermen and fisherwoman coming and going on all trips out of Puerto Vallarta Mexico.  This is the mating season for the whales and manta rays so be ready with you camera for some incredible breaches seen daily. 

    There is so much more to see and do on the water here a cruise, whale watching or just sight seeing trip is a must in February. To get more info on how to book the right  boat for your needs here in Punta Mita, Nuevo Vallarta or Puerto Vallarta fishing call me toll free at 800 4306048 or e mail and I’ll get back with the info I have from my 30 years plus fishing these beautiful waters.  Hope to see you out there with you camera or fishing rod doubled over.  Hey how about both

    We went out fishing with Freddy and his brother, Giovanni. They were very courteous and assured us that we would have a good and safe day. They were right! My husband caught two huge yellow tails. He had a lot of fun reeling them in, and I enjoyed the entertainment! We would highly recommend using this fishing service to anyone!

    Capt. Pete was very helpful when we were booking the trip and gave us tips about Puerto Villarta on the phone. We went out on Katy’s – a super panga (boat) with Freddy and Victor. They won’t talk your ear off but will tell you what you need to know and are very good at answering questions. Better, they find fish. Big fish. Apparently, no one else was catching much of anything. We caught 6 yellowtail in less than 4 hours.

    Great Day of Fishing with the Capt Pete’s Crew!
    We have been staying at Paradise Village Resort for nearly a decade and decided this year we wanted to experience deep sea fishing. We chose to go on this adventure with Capt Pete on the Dos Amigos. Capt Luis and mate Christian were excellent guides. We caught many yellow-tail and bonita. They made fresh ceviche while we watched and served it to us with fresh, crispy tortillas on the return trip to the marina. We had a wonderful day and would highly recommend!

    Capt Pete and the Dos Amigos with Dos Amigos! Fantastic!!
    My son Connor and I took a 6 hour tour on March 25th 2017 resulting in a fantastic day of fishing! My son landed 6 Crevalle jacks, numerous Spanish Mackerel and Bonita’s(think thats right). At one point we had 3 fish hooked at the same time, I even caught one. That was crazy!
    Half way thru the tour Captain Pete spotted some whales so we followed. A mother and her calf swimming the bay, wow! We had numerous dolphin sightings as well as multiple huge Manta Rays right by the boat.

    Christian prepared lunch from the fish we had just caught. They were the best ceviche tostadas!! It was absolutely delicious.

    Captain Pete on Dos Amigos is the only way to go! He made it a great experience and was really helpful and informative. I’d definitely go back on Captain Pete’s boat again.

    Thanks Captain Pete!

  • Puerto Vallarta

    Puerto Vallarta Fishing
    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.

    Puerto Vallarta Fishing

    Puerto vallarta

    Besides all the great cruises we have here in Puerto Vallarta Mexico there are all kinds of great shore trips to do.  We have the city tours which can be done in 1/2 day and are very reasonable.  The jungle tour is one of the favorites or locals and tourists alike.  This is a all day tour that takes you to some of the unknown places around Puerto Vallarta.  There’s also a beach stop to one of the out of the way beaches.

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

    The zip line is one of my favorites and is fun for couples of the whole family.  The are serval here in Puerto Vallarta but be sure and ask us which one is the best.   One of my friends built the first one and it’s the best. Zip lining in Puerto Vallarta what fun.
