Puerto Vallarta Fishing Report

Puerto Vallarta fishing report August 18, 2017
The fishing for the month of August here in Puerto Vallarta has been strong. We have been having lot of families and some fantastic trips here but school has started the last week and now it time to start fishing for the big ones. I’m talking 8 hrs deep sea fishing trips here in Puerto Vallarta plus a few hrs. The summer time can be great here in the bay but most of the time the big marlin are hanging around the Corbentena and El Banco. The fishing there can be epic at times. Big tuna , marlin, sailfish and mahi mahi also known as dorados. The Corbetena is 35 miles from Puerto Vallarta and El Banco is 50 miles. On these trips we usually fish early morning high speed lures and then switch to skip baits. On arrival to one of these spots we always look for the bait movement. Where there’s lots of bait movement there will be marlin and big tunas. We like to start with the 5 to 10 lbs. bait and do a slow troll about 1 to 2 knots. The marlin can’t resist these baits. And when ya hook up hold on for a 3 to 4 hr. ride in the chair. The water temp is holding around 80 deg. is most places and this makes for good fishing here in Puerto Vallarta. Come on down and wet a line with us and have some summer fun while it last. The beers are cold and the fishing is hot.

This week in Puerto Vallarta fishing we are going to look into the most important issues on chartering a fishing boat here in Puerto Vallarta.

1 )  Safety.  is first in anything you do here in Puerto Vallarta or else where.
We have been doing charters here for almost 30 years 0 accidents.
2 ) The crew.  You can have a great crew and this makes for a  fantastic day.
if you wind up with the wrong crew it can be a long day.  Make sure the crew
knows your requests and what you expect them to do for you.
3 ) The boat.  This is one of the most important factors.  if you want to go
offshore and rent a boat that can’t make it you are in for a long boat ride.
Talk to the Capt. or owner before you trip.  This can be hard as most of the
companies have someone else doing the emails or answering the phone.
I do all the calls and e mails personally.  Plan your trip to ensure a great day.
4 ) Communication .  It does not matter if you have a fast boat and super
crew if you can’t commutate with them. The day want be any fun.
Make sure you, your guests/family are on the same page and can converse
with the crew.  This will guarantee you understand what to do and not do.  Plus see all the sights coming and
going to the fishing grounds and returning such as sea life, special points of interests, landmarks.
5 ) Where to fish and length of trip.  If you want a marlin, mahi mahi or sailfish you will need to plan the length
of your trip accordingly.  Some days the fish are here in the bay other days they are offshore.  Make sure
you have plenty of time to get to fishing grounds to ensure you can hook up the fish of your dreams.
I personally use a satellite service that I pay for annually  each year that tells me where the blue water is,chlorophyll breaks,
water temp., altimetry,currents and winds.
Hope this information helps you chose the right boat for your family and friends while on Vacation here in beautiful
Puerto Vallarta

July 22, 2017 Deep sea Fishing report Puerto vallarta

The summer fishing has started off with a bang. Over the last month the water temp has went up 82 deg. and hotter in some spots.  The use of Terrifin which has saved use time and helped us get on the fish when other boats could not find them.  We have been catching tuna over by yelapa along with sailfish and dorados when the water was blue.  The inshore action has been great . We have had lot of families fish this last week and numerous father/son trips here in Puerto Vallarta fishing.  On some days we could not keep the yellowtails off the line with several  triple hook ups.  The large skip jacks are here and great fun for the kids to catch.  The also make a great ceviche for our clients. There have been some Spanish mackerel around in the cooler water.  The break water lines have been producing some nice mahi mahi along with the occasional sailfish in the bay.The offshore action is producing huge snapper (pargos ) tuna and marlin.  The Corbetena has water temp. over 80 deg. plus.  Some fast speed lures like black bart early in the morning are helping us catch these big marlin.  The dorados will also hit these lures.  The tunas show up more than often at El Banco.  The water temp has been over 80 deg. for some time now.

The rainy season has started this summer but this only makes the fishing better with all the floating stuff in the water means catching dorados around these structures.  On some days we can just  keep pitching live baits and catching dorados all day or until the live bait runs out.

Best bet for fishing  is 6 hrs bay fishing for families and short trips. or 10 to 12 hrs trips going for the big ones.  Be sure and call us on our toll free number 800 -430 6048 for the latest Puerto Vallarta fishing report.  We look forward to seeing yall this summer here in Puerto Vallarta,  Mexico

Puerto Vallarta fishing report

July 9 , 2017

The water and weather has heated up.  The fishing has heated up as well.  We have fished several days in the bay and several days outside the bay.  Both types of fishing trips have been very successful. The bay fishing can be done in 4 to 6 hrs.  We have caught lots of small game fish over the last few days.  The jack carvelles are every where .  The best bet has been the tuna over by Yelapa and Los Arcos.  The mahi mahi also know as dorados are along the south shore.  The water has been clear to a little off color.  The have been some roosterfish mixed in with these other fish.  The south side of the bay for roosterfish is best right now,  The temp has been over 80 deg. in most places.  We have used all kinds of trolling, pitch baits, fast lures, down riggers and skipping baits to catch these fish.
The offshore fishing is still great .  Sailfish , tuna and big marlin or just a few of the fish for summer fishing in Puerto Vallarta.  The 10 and 12 hr s trips have been fantastic catching all kinds of fish mostly marlin and tuna.  The sailfish action is strong as well.
The summer fishing in Puerto Vallarta can’t be beat so come on down and wet a line with us.

May 18 2017 report for Puerto Vallarta fishing

The sailfish and marlin are show up.  The water is blue offshore and bait is plentiful.  The best trips have 8 to 10 hrs to get out to the good fishing grounds.  El Morro and corbetena have been a couple of hot spots.  Every year we have many trophy fish from these 2 places.  Best bet now is lures and skip baits in the morning on the tide changes.  If the marlin are the large chorros 5 to 10 lbs . for live bait with het you a big marlin, a black or blue.  Th sailfish action will be off the charts in the coming weeks.   The snapper fishing is still holding strong.  Come down and wet a line with us and have some fun.

Spring time is here and  the fishing is taking  off.  The fishing is heating up in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.  sardines are coming and that means bait balls and crazy fishing.

During the months of  March to October we have some of the best fishing in the world.

In the month of April  bait start showing up and the fishing is off the charts.

Spring time fishing in the bay can produce a lot of action with marlin , bonita,yellowtail,tuna,mahi mahi and even sailfish. This is because the water temperature reaches about 80 deg.  And stays there until the summer 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 sailfish 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 Report

Fishing Report Punta Mita

April 2017

The spring time fishing is in full swing here in Puerto Vallarta fishing.   The water temp is holding around 78 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 fishing.  Some days the run has been short but others plan on around 2 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 Corbetena  you need to plan on a 10 to  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.
