Puerto Vallarta fishing report December. The fishing in November has been incredible and great steady fishing here in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. The inshore action and offshore has been some of the best fishing in many years. There have been many Marlin, sailfish, mahi -mahi and tuna caught on these fishing trips.The inshore fishing has been fantastic catching lot of the skipjack tuna, mahi-mahi, and some sailfish right here inside our beautiful bay. The largest in Mexico. The best bet for these inshore fishing trips here in Puerto Vallarta have been 6 hours .
The fishing over on the Southside around Los Arcos and then heading out west towards Yelapa have produced many of the Mahi-Mahi and even some big sailfish. The skipjack tuna, Bonitas, and Spanish mackerel have been holding on the north side of the bay and really good numbers. Once again these Puerto Vallarta fishing trips inside the bay are usually the six hours. These inshore fishing trips are perfect for families and of course people that don’t want to spend all day on a fishing boat. The normal trip starts at around 7 or 7:30 in the morning and continues on up until 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. in the afternoon. The action has been hot and all trips I’ve been very successful.
The offshore fishing trips have been best with 8 and 10 hour trips fishing here in Puerto Vallarta. The best bet has been 10 hours and most of these trips have been out to the rock also known as the Corbetena. The Marlin have been holding strong around the close by and there are many baits there for the taking for these large fish. The larger mahi-mahi and sailfish or around the same area. Best fishing technique has been catching the large 5 to 10 lb. baits live baiting for them or fishing with our kites. The kite fishing has produced a lot of tuna all the way up to 250 lb. The downriggers with the large baits have been great for the big marlin as well. As you can see the offshore fishing and inshore fishing here in Puerto Vallarta is great and will continue to hold strong through December. On another side note to Humpback whales are showing up in good numbers and we’ll be doing whale watching tours on some of our trips soon. This is great news for the fishing clients that we take out. On the way out and on the way back will have incredible opportunities to see the 20-ton 40 foot incredible mammals playing here in our Waters.

Puerto Vallarta fishing report this week has some new news coming up about what we have been catching. And some even more exciting news about some of the up coming fishing tournaments here in Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding areas.The really big question we get all the time is what do we do differently in a fishing tournament versus a regular fishig day of 8 hrs. I’ve heard this before and after the tournaments. The main factor is we fish for marlin, sailfish, tuna and dorados also know as mahi mahi but really big ones as with most fishing tournaments the biggest fish wins or the fishing boat that catches the most fish.
The baits are a bigger and so are the lures. we made sure there is new line on all the reels and plenty of baits with all kind of lures known to man. Of course the hours we fish are set by the fishing committees and can range from 8 hours the first day to 16 hours the next day. Most of the incredible tournaments are three days in length. There is plenty of time to catch the big fish of your dreams and them some. We have a exciting tournament scheduled in June 13 to June 17 , 2018 which will be held in San Blas, Nayarit. San Blas is an old fort 50 nautical miles north of beautiful Puerto Vallarta Mexico with is fanstic fishing grounds. We love this tournament as the fishing grounds are very close and the run is very short. ( less than 1 hour in most cases) The sailfish are thick this time of the year as well as big marlin. The mahi mahi will be in full force this year as all the fishing conditions are looking great and could not be any better.
This week the bay fishing in Puerto Vallarta has been offering the very elusive California Bonita which is a spectular eating fish. The Spanish mackerel are still hanging around the bay as well. The snapper action was on and off but still here. The famous Mexican torros also know as jack Carville are bountiful all over the bay and some of the offshore fishing spots. Speaking of offshore fishing in Puerto Vallarta the fishing was a little off as we had some light color water move in and the marlin/sailfish did not like it one bit. Since that time the water conditions have improved and so has the marlin/sailfish fishng conditions. I’m happy to report there are more sardines and big baits moving into the offshore areas along with the Puerto Vallarta bay fishing areas. This means the fishing will be hot and lot of fish caught over the next few weeks. This coming week should see some great fishing coupled with some great weather.
So what ya waiting for come on down and enjoy the fantastic fishing and incredible weather
Look forward to seeing yall out there in Puerto Vallarta Mexico for fun fishing and sun
