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.
Until next time Tight Lines
