• 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.

  • 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.
