Sailfish Spread Out, Yellowfin Tuna Bite Late in Day

Writing a fishing article weekly is like aiming at a moving target. We all know what the fishing was like yesterday is not really an indication for what will happen tomorrow in conditions like we presently have. Now the fishing in Puerto Vallarta is never anything but good. But, if you’re looking for Moby...

Punta Mita Explodes with Sailfish and Dorado

Welcome back to another week of exciting fishing. We’ve seen several weeks where the fishing has gone from great to terrible, then back to great again. Now I can’t say the fishing is “great” but I can say it’s very good. The conditions are hard to beat right now, it is warm and humid...

Excitement Builds with Black Marlin And Yellowfin Tuna

These are the kind of “cookie cutter” reports I like. Fishing can be such a roller coaster that what was happening yesterday is no guarantee it will happen today. As we enter the best time of the year for Sportfishing in one of the best fishing grounds in the world you should have high...

600 Pound Plus Black Marlin at Corbetena, Dorado Too!

Warning; As we move into the second week of July we find every single condition both perfect and frustrating. Bait, we have tons of bait at all the fishing grounds, bait is not a problem. The water is blue, we have some really big fish out there right now which shows that even when...

Yellowfin Tuna, Marlin, Sails, Corbetena Boogies

When it’s good at Corbetena that is about all you need to know to get your neck hair standing up, then comes the ants in your pants. If you’re one of those guys I suggest you move on to the next paragraph because I’m about to get that neck hair standing. Then give me...

Yellowfin, Marlin, Sailfish, It’s Finally Fish City Again

Let’s start with Corbetena, like last week we’re still seeing red crabs drawing in Yellowfin Tuna anywhere from 40 lbs to 80 lbs, it just depends on your luck at the time. Sailfish of nice size, some Striped Marlin at 250 lbs, Black Marlin over 500 lbs, Blue Marlin at 500 lbs, and a...

Extreme Condition Changes, Warm Water, Yellowfin Tuna!

For the last few months you could have used a cookie cutter to put my reports together. It seemed like the same fishing elements never changed. I’m very happy to say that this is finally all coming to an end as we have seen water temperatures jump from 72 degrees to 81 degrees...

Everyday is a Different Challenge, Chilly Water!

At this time of the year we normally see water temperatures inching their way up, it isn’t happening. Last week we had Freak Black Marlin, Sailfish, Striped Marlin and then BAM! Water temps dropped like a rock, blue water disappeared for the most part and we’re all scratching our heads about this. For the...

Everyday is a New Adventure, Football Tuna, Sailfish

You can definitely see and feel the seasons are on the verge of change. Water temperatures have inched up a bit more this week, water color isn´t the dark green it has been and is changing to a clean green which is preferable.. But it´s not blue water as we prefer for the most...

Striped Marlin Numbers Increase, Spinners and Football Tuna

I have to say, this last winter has been a strange season. Now you can point a finger in several different directions, blame global warming, Long Liners, Over Fishing and the list continues. What the deal ¨is¨ I haven´t a clue, but I do know this we´re starting to see some small changes that...

Seasonal Transition Begins, Large Dorado at Punta Mita

Every year we know it´s coming, the end of high season for fishing here in PV. Normally by the second week of the New Year we see water temperatures drop and everything changes. This year we saw this happen a little early, we´ve had 76 degree water temps now for about two weeks....

Water Temp Roller Coaster, Fish In/Ou

By now you should be sick and tired of hearing me talk about El Nino, but here we are again. When people learn about El Nino and how it all works, nobody expects conditions to change all at once. When it does change it can be like a ¨Log Jam¨ busting. Two weeks ago...

It´s Fish City, Bucket List Fish Everywhere!

Ok Folks, what do you want to catch, Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish, Dorado, Rooster fish, Marlin and Snook at the river mouths finally. Yes, it s ¨Fish City¨ and fishing in PV right now is as good as it´s going to get! Time to break the piggy bank and lie to the little woman if...

Fish Everywhere, Perfect Conditions!

It´s that time of the year when fishing is not going to get any better than it is now as we enter the thanksgiving and Mexican National Holiday season. Water temperatures, bait conditions / availability, it´s fish city again! Yellowfin Return, Sailfish on tap, Dorado increasing, Marlin, even Rooster fish are all happening now...

Porpoise Return to Corbeteña, Sailfish in the Bay

We´re seeing some large Blue and Black Marlin at Corbeteña, Not El Banco. Bait is moving into the area like crazy in the form of three inch Sardines which of course attract Rooster fish so cross your fingers. All and all the fishing could be better, but you can always say that. If you´re...

Roll the Dice Fishing, They`re out there, Felling Lucky?

We´re seeing streaky, Hot / Cold fishing, one day it´s great, next day it´s a fish ghost town. October is the beginning of the highest part of fishing high season so to me this is a little disappointing, but not shocking. It´s also the time of the year we see currents start to change...

Blue Water, Dorado, Marlin, Sailfish and Football Tuna

Right after I wrote last week’s report things flipped for the better. The ¨Clean Green water we´ve had for the last weeks is not gone. Blue water has returned to the area and we´re seeing an increase in Dorado in both numbers and locations. Marlin are still the main game fish out there, but...

Dorado Finally Show Up At Corbeteña, Marlin, Sails, Tuna Too!

Normally we´ll see Dorado in Puerto Vallarta’s fishing grounds anytime after April. For years now we´ve seen the arrival of Dorado later and later in the fishing season and this year is the latest I can remember. With all the long liners, indiscriminate fishing (poaching) at out fisheries like the Tres Maria Islands, aka...
