• Puerto Vallarta fishing report for May

    Puerto Vallarta fishing charter report for May action. The deep sea fishing and weather are getting hotter.  There are some great  events that we always have here in May .  The Mexican  Mother’s Day, one of our San Blas international fishing tournaments and unbelievable fishing.  This is brought on  by warm gentle water moving in an onslaught baitfish in the Puerto Vallarta area.may fishing in puerto vallarta

    When the bay water heats up we start seeing real large numbers of  Marlin coming in and around the day.  This last week here in Puerto Vallarta fishing we have been locating  good numbers of striped Marlin right here in the Bay area along with some sailfish. This means to the Bay of flags. With the water heating up and a large increase in bait activity will start seeing the black  marlin and blue marlin showing up offshore very soon. In the nest couple of weeks  we’re happy to be seeing all the striped Marlin in the bay. When you see the huge bait balls on the surface the fishing is wide open here for almost anything you want to catch.

    If you’ve been checking my fishing reports that I’ve been doing over the last 30 years here we look for several things one of them is the water clarity, the blue water the temperature, the tides , and last but not least where the bait is running. The fish are just like us they have to eat so if you can find where the bait is then you will always find a lot fish. Always a plus if you have good water temperature , blue water and lots of bait all at the same time.puerto vallarta fishing report for may 2019

    With this large amount of bait in the bay and in the outlaying areas we’re seeing all kinds of fish.  The big red  snapper had moved in and her striking  all kinds of lures , live bait, trolled bait and fresh cut bait fishing on the bottom with weights. You put it out there it they’ll bite it. Most of the Puerto Vallarta charter boats are catching lots of the yellowtail , the  mackerel, and the really great tasting California Bonita. Most of these Fish can be caught pulling rapalas and the small lures behind them like the deadly Clark spoons. Dragging baits and some of our high speed lures it’s a no fail method of landing fish inside the bay and offshore places we like to fish in May.

    You can sure the action is going to be incredible offshore with all this bait running in the area. There’s still some large tuna’s out there to be caught. blue marlin and some more dorado action and the fast sailfish action offshore. Punta Mita on the North side there’s been some hot action ,good water temperatures and lots of bait movement.

  • Puerto Vallarta fishing Charters June

    Puerto Vallarta fishing Charters June is here and the fishing could not be better.  The deep sea fishing is continuing to increase in fish numbers and size. The marlin, sailfish, dorados and tuna are still following the bait into the beautiful Puerto Vallarta bay and the offshore areas we enjoying fishing here in Mexico.   The light evening rains will be starting around the middle of the month and this means the bay fishing in Puerto Vallarta  and the offshore fishing will be fantastic.  The water temp is still over 80 degrees and will be all summer long.  What does this mean to the average fisherman coming to Puerto vallarta or family ?  It means you will have a incredible chance to catch that throphy fish or those tuna and mahi mahi you are looking to cook at one of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta or take home with on the plane back to the United States or Canada.

    You can expect some great bay fishing here in Puerto Vallarta.  After the light evening rains start the mahi mahi , tuna, bonitas and even some sailfish will be coming into the bay.  The bait are already here and we are just waiting for the pelagic fish to show up.  The rains are coming and for sure the bait balls.  With all the hot action happening the bay fish will be rocking and catching several good fish on every trip.

    The offshore fishing has been strong and just as the bay fishing will improve with the coming of the rains and the bait movement.  One of the major differences in bay fishing and the offshore fishing is the travel time to and from where we fish offshore such as the El Morro, The Corbetena and El Banco just to mention a  few.  These are the go to places

    puerto vallarta fishing charterswhen fishing for the big fish here in Puerto Vallarta fishing charters.  The blue marlin, black marlin , huge tuna, mahi mahi and sailfish roam these areas as they will be thick with bait.  Some days the bait is so abundant it goes on and on for miles.  Like a mile buffet only for fish.  This is an unbelievable  sight to see and defiantly means superb fishing for that day.

    We will be using several techniques when fishing the offshore water here in Mexico.  Early morning is great for high speed lure and skipping baits.  On some of our bigger boats we can run 10 lines along with a couple of teasers.  If this does raise the fish they are just not biting in the morning.

    Another technique is the slow troll with live baits ranging from a couple of pounds to ten or more pounds.  These large bonitas are used for big tunas and the larger marlin.  Think about a ten pound snack.  Will have to be some kind of big fish to tackle on of these large baits.

    At other times of the day we like to run some of the baits on the down rigger up to 100 feet down.  These pelagic fish do not always hit on top of the surface.  One of my personal favorites is running the fast bait on the surface while running the down rigger so top water and below the water can be coved at the same time above and below.  As you can see June fishing in Puerto Vallarta is just getting started but already in full swing.  Come down while the beer is cold and the fishing hot.

    Look forward to seeing you out there
