A Big Bay of “Fish Soup”, Hot or Cold Just Depends

              Written by: Stan Gabruk owner of Master Baiter´s Sportfishing & Tackle

Wahoo between El Morro and Corbetena for the super lucky!

As we inch our way closer and closer to the winter season the holidays are upon us. Many holiday travelers hope to catch a bucket list fish during this time of the year. Most of the time we can provide this list item, but this year is different. We’re seeing cold currents continue, but they’re coming up from the south, not north. We’re also seeing these cold currents in a swirling pattern that means we have warm water species and cold water species all sharing the same neighborhood. With all the “crowding” there is still plenty of bait in the bay. Now this is normally a positive, but when there is so much bait that they don’t give your bait a look, this can be a bit of a problem. The up side, we have lots of fish to choose from! Those with a little luck will be going home with memories of a lifetime!

Amazingly water temperatures are still in the 80 degree range, dipping just a tad lower at times. What this means we have perfect conditions for warm water species like Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado and others. We also have enough bait in the area to keep the “locals” interested as we move into the last stretch of high season for fishing. Corbetena has been improving with Sailfish, Blue Marlin in the 250 to 350 lb range, Yellowfin

Jack Crevalls are moving in again

Football Tuna are in the 40 lb range as well. Now they’re looking at all sorts of bait, so they may look at your presentation, then move on. This will drive you crazy. But they’ll take baits as well, so it just depends on what your target species comes across first. Dorado are still in the area, but they’re moving around. Where they were yesterday is not going to be where they are today. Fish move, they’re funny that way. Make sure you give yourself the time and a boat that will use fuel, which means not bargain boats. Many times bargain boats will not tell you there are fish off a bit in the distance as it would cost them money, impacting their bottom line. You on the other hand “thought” you paid to go fishing and you did. So make sure you ask the correct question along with “how much”! Some boats come in with fish, some don’t, it can all come down to fuel usage. With blue water, plenty of bait, you’re about a 70% shot at coming in with a Bucket list fish. El Banco is seeing fish as well, but with Corbetena running hot not many are using the extra fuel just to find no improvement on conditions. If targeting Marlin this is the best place to try as the numbers are greater in this area for the moment.

The eight hour trips taking you to El Morro / The Marietta Islands / Punta Mita point has been producing nicely. Dorado in the 30 lb range, Sailfish in the 90 lb range, Wahoo are in the area and taking baits, but catching them is not easy and they’re not a schooling species so they taste great and you’ll be lucky for sure. Striped Marlin to 250 lbs. With Blue Marlin over 300 lbs in the area you can essentially catch the same species at Corbetena, save money and if all fails, come back into the bay and hit the “freaks” hanging around La Cruz marina. With Sardines in the bay you’d have a Rooster fish expectation, but you’ll be disappointed. We had some larger Roosters last week, this week they’re much smaller. Throw in Jack Crevalls at 25 lbs, Bonito to 35 lbs and maybe even some 30 lb Snappers and you’ll have a fun day for sure.

Inside the bay is still and always will be great. Inside the bay we normally see smaller fish. Recently, well for some time now actually, we’ve seen Sailfish around La Cruz, Dorado around Los Arcos to 25 lbs, Needle fish to 30 lbs, Sierra Mackerels running 15 lbs and tasty. Snappers are around the bait balls and in between the Bottle Nose Dolphin feeding on the abundant Krill squids and Shrimps. Maybe even some Yellowfin Footballs around Yelapa. Four hours will do the “trick”, but six hours give you some time to find them.

For three weeks now the bite has remained after 10 a.m. so getting up and hitting it too early may work against your cause, especially if you’re heading out for four hours. You could be back before the bite happens! Water temperatures remain surprisingly high at 78 to 80 degrees we move closer to winter with the swirling currents.

INSIDE INFORMATION YOU CAN USE: Since you’re here on the web page, getting your information fresh and unfiltered I have to say things fishing wise are up and down. The “Fish Soup” title is just that, you don’t know what  you’re going to get. For now we’re seeing Krill Shrimp and Squids that everything in the by just loves to eat. You can get lucky and find some fish that haven’t stuffed themselves. Then again, you could find fish that are so full they won’t take a bait, but they may take a couple of looks, then move on. Now that will drive you crazy! We’ve seen many Dorado and Sailfish from the Marietta Islands to Punta Mita. Some days this is the only place to be. The problem is fish move, so where they are today is not where they’ll be tomorrow, not surprising. The question is “Where are they today”? If my crystal ball would get back “online” i’d be able to tell you. But until then it’s a search to enjoy mission. With many boats in the bay, they have radios and know that people catching fish is good for the overall health of the Sportfishing industry. Now if you’re on a “bargain basement boat” with no radio, not only is this dangerous and illegal, they can’t hear the updates of where the fish are. Another thing to think about is the boat you reserved, did you get a great price just to discover the boat you’re on is trolling baits at ten miles an hour. Twice the real trolling speed, which means you’re not fishing as they create the perception that you are. It helps keep you from getting mad about the boat speed as other boats are passing you left and right. You may at this point get the idea that you’re getting exactly what you paid for. Nobody in your party ask how fast you head to the fishing grounds? Now you know. Your fishing time in the water reality is that at ten miles an hour it will take you two hours to get to the Marietta islands or Punta Mita. That’s two extra hours of fishing you don’t get! On top of that, you have no shot  at catching a fish, none! It is meant to make you think you’re “fishing” yet they know you’re not. Two hours to the Marietta Islands or Punta Mita point, and then they do the same “slow boat, fast troll” back to the Marina. On an eight hour trip, you got screwed out of at least two hours of real fishing. If you compare the time fishing vs the money you paid per hour of “real fishing” then you’ll understand your real cost. This is very common. With fuel prices jumping twenty percent in the last year and there have been more announcements of continued fuel increases of another twenty percent. That’s forty percent fuel increase in an already expensive market. Mexico has so many social programs connected to energy that with people using less fuel, the revenues are down as you’d expect. So they kicked up the cost even more to make up for the shortcomings. With fuel cost a constant factor in an already expensive activity those looking to save money should question what they’re getting for their money. Another inside fact about these boats is the captain more than 80% of them do not own their boats, that’s a fact. When they quote a price, they are cutting it to their quick. If for example the crew hears there are fish striking near by, the captain of the boat would need to kick it in gear and zip over to where the fish are and you’d expect they would. They won’t. The won’t go because if they use too much fuel the boat owner will take it from their pay. Or worse, take their pay and then fire the poor guy. Not all are like this, but a significant amount of them operate in this manner. So, if you’re looking at price exclusively, ask if the boat heads out at 20 plus miles per hour. Ask how much bait comes with the price of the charter. Many charge fishing licenses, walk away from any idiot that says that. Ask if the boat has a radio, i know that sounds strange but many don’t as they pay the port authority a mordida or bribe to operate an illegal boat! Do they have insurance, Illegal boats of course don’t. The Navy has just taken the daily operations of Marina Vallarta over in an effort to stop these boats from operating, but that’s only with licenses to operate legally. The slow boat “syndrome” is still legal so it’s a buyer beware scenario so asking the right questions are the most important part of the negotiations. But there is little you can do if they lie to you. If the price of the boat is the only question you’re asking, think about what i just put in writing here amigo.

¨Summer¨ fishing in March with Marlin, Tuna, Sailfish!

                             ¨Summer¨ fishing in March with Marlin, Tuna, Sailfish!

Written by: Stan Gabruk owner of Master Baiter´s Sportfishing & Tackle09 20 2008 Discover, Capt. Oscar, Yellowfin 200 + Lbs, 10 hrs 004

 
You know I can´t figure it out, we have winter species in the bay like Jack Crevalls, Needle Fish, Sierra Mackerals. Then we have the summer species of Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo and Sailfish in the same waters at the same time. Yes folks this is El Nino with it´s scrambled egg approach to fishing. We don´t know what to expect on a weekly basis, but we do know there are big fish at El Banco and Corbetena. We have Sailfish around the Marietta and Punta Mita area with Rooster fish. Then we have freak fishing situations like Blue Marlin being boated in the Bay. So fishing right now is like a trend we should ride and not get too much into the ¨why it´s happening now¨, just keep reeling!

05 18 2015 Football Tuna, CorbeteñaLast week the fishing was great, this week it´s even better. But that´s not to say it´s perfect, it´s still work, nothing is automatic. But just having Big Black Marlin in the area is reason enough to get excited. To have Yellowfin Tuna in the neighborhood in what is barely spring is a gift from the heavens that should be taken advantage of amigos. And right now! Corbeteña rocking again with Blue Marlin to 500 lbs, no real Black Marlin here (next week), Sailfish are back in town and picking up in numbers around 100 lbs. Cubera Snappers to 65 lbs, Yellowfin Tuna Footballs at 50 to 65 lbs, Wahoo for the lucky at 60 pounds plus. Jack Crevalls and Bonito are a given. With tons of Skip Jack Tuna in the area and the abundance of flying fish, Goggle Eyes and Bullet Bonito fish are spread out like last week. And like last week the production fishing ships (Seiners) out of Mazatlan are nowhere to be found, thank the fishing gods! FYI, to get to the Sailfish and the Tuna you have to be 15 miles or so South West of the rock. Use this info wisely. El Banco is all this with larger Yellowfin Tuna anywhere from 65 lbs all the way up to 200 lbs north of the high spots, Black Marlin starting at 350 lbs all the way to over 600 lbs have been boated this week. The areas in between these two famous locations are alive as well. So don´t just sit on the high spots or circle Corbeteña, have plenty of fuel and go on the hunt, this is spring fishing like you´ll probably not see again until another nutzy El Nino year so get out there and have some fun. If the wife complains blame me, then promise a Spa Day, remember it´s cheaper to keep her!.

Wahoo at El Morro !!
Wahoo at El Morro !!

El Morro is cooking with Wahoo, Bonito, Jack Crevalls, Sierra Mackerals. Wahoo are just hanging out and not many are targeting this highly desirable pescado (fish). Almost impossible to target, those boating these fish are basically lucky their razor sharp mouth didn´t cut the line. But luck is part of fishing and we´ll take all we can get. Sailfish are in the area as well with some Rooster fish, but not many. Around the Marietta islands, on the back side there have been small, baby sized Dorado, throw them back. Rooster fish are here as well in the 40 lb size range, larger at the Anclote Reef off Sayulita. Rooster fish are hot then cold, but your best chances are around the Sayulita shoreline and especially around Anclote. Lots of Sailfish in the area and about 18 miles off the point you´ll start to see Marlin and more Sailfish. So the 8 hr trips are working well.

Large Sierra Mackerals are great eating and fun for the whole family to catch!
Large Sierra Mackerals are great eating and fun for the whole family to catch!

Inside the bay it´s insane. Jack Crevalls to 50 lbs, Sierra Mackerals over 30 lbs, a Blue Marlin and Sailfish was boated off Los Arcos in a freak thing. Bonito to 40 lbs, Snook and Snapper in front of the river drop offs and the list goes on. Great action in the bay for the younglings and adultos alike. Have fun, a four hour trip is worth it´s weight in smiles, memories and good times. Four people, four hours, $320 bucks, that´s only 60 dollars per person and I´ll throw in the bait, licenses and ice!

This week we´re seeing high visibility blue water with temps hanging at 79 degrees which is a middle ground all the local species are able to ¨live¨ with. About the only species missing is Dorado and they should be back in the area hopefully soon. The Red Tuna Crabs and one inch squids have moved out with the tide and the Tuna are still here?! Skippies are everywhere and large, but not taking baits so that´s a challenge when the bait won´t bite! With the super abundance of flying fish if running lures, and you should run one lure, it should still be the deep blue with silver marking if this doesn´t work move to petrelaros with purple. The Bite is happening a little earlier this week so be sure to be on the water early.

Shared boats for 8 hrs targeting Dorado has been very popular (½ Super Panga, 2 person max. per half the boat)! Just fire me an email so I know when you´ll be here and we´ll do the rest. The Downtown Store on Basidillo Badillo and Insurgentes is open for High Season. Call Chris (El Centro Mgr) at (044) 322 112 9558 for fishing, tours or T-shrts amigo.  I am still in Marina Vallarta so take your pick. YeHa! We are also Smoking your fish, we keep half, but man is this stuff good. Call Chris for Details in my El Centro store. Contact us about a week before coming to PV so we can get you set up early on a shared boat!

Until next time, don´t forget to ¨Kiss Your Fish¨. . .

Currents Change, Long Liners Invade Punta Mita, Everywhere

                    Currents Change, Long Liners Invade Punta Mita, Everywhere

Written by: Stan Gabruk owner of Master Baiter´s Sportfishing & Tackle

 

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESIn the ever changing world of fishing, currents can change and all of a sudden everything changes in a heartbeat and this is where we are now amigos. We have seen a strange current, a cool current come through Corbeteña this past week and all of a sudden the fishing just stopped at the Rock. At t his time of the year this is not exactly strange or unusual, but it is very unwelcome. The early part of the week was rocking at the rock, but the last couple of days have turned into a roll of the dice. Now this doesn´t mean the fishing is bad, it just had a hiccup or two.

We had a few days of rough water, nothing to stop the fishing, but still enough to get some a little sickish fishing and with the current changes we´re seeing the arrival of Jack Crevalls in mass, Needle Fish, and Sierra Mackerals. These are all winter species fish and we know when the currents come from the north we see Sierra Mackerals and Needle Fish. With El Nino conditions in full swing, we have warm water with cooler water starting to mix together. Your electronics will be more important these next few days so you can make sure you´re trolling in warm water and not ice water. Yes amigos, winter fishing is knocking on our door.

02 15 2013 Skip Jack Footballs Yelapa Red600 pix wTextCorbeteña had its challenges this week as things just came to a stop, no fish, nothing chasing a bait, even Cubera Snappers that take bait consistently were AWOL! With the ¨sudden¨ change in currents that are inevitable at this time of year it is actually an announcement that winter is coming to PV. For the moment, inside the bay would be better than tossing your fuel dollar into a wasted effort. Now I want to make sure you understand this is temporary and things are probably already better, fish don´t leave this area for long. El Banco, Pretty much the same. Where did the Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna go, your guess is as good as mine. Before heading out be sure you drop me a line and I´ll let you know the latest conditions and discuss a plan of attack amigo, more than happy to help any way I can.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESInside the bay, it´s freak fishing. I mean seriously weird stuff happening. Last week I posted a picture of a 350 lb Black Marlin that was boated in the bay in front of the Los Arcos rocks by about five miles. Dorado are all over the bay with the smallest being in the 30 lb range, which is nice indeed! Bonito in the 30 lb range, Jack Crevalls are moving in nicely to 45 lbs, average is 30 lbs. Needle Fish are in the south end of the bay and some of them are six feet long and over 50 lbs! They´re great tasting and fun to catch, so don´t think Needle fish are trash fish. Sailfish are still all over the bay, especially near La Cruz and sough of the Los Arcos rocks. Snook seem to be backing off a little, but some are still around close to shore and around the river mouths. I can´t remember when the fishing in the bay was this outstanding! My suggestion for this week: Six hours in the bay, target Dorado and keep your eyes open for the Whales all over the Bay of Banderas. For the moment, this area will give the best bang for your fishing dollar amigo. Just remember everything could change before you finish reading this paragraph!

The bite is still in the mid morning hours around 8 a.m until about 12:00, and then the afternoon bite is around 4 in the afternoon to dusk. Lures to use this week are once again the petrelaros of purple, green and brown. Lures of white and blue mimic flying and working well and lures of Green in color with flecks of yellow to imitate a Dorado are your best lure choices this week. Live bait is always king, but you should always run at least one lure Water temperatures have dropped from 85 degrees to 82 degrees, this is perfect for many species and we should start seeing Striped Marlin coming into the area.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHere in Puerto Vallarta the fishing is great, but you´d never know it because there are hundreds and hundreds of long lines running from Corbetena to El Banco, to Punta Mita and the Marietta Islands. These ¨long liners¨ are pulling tons and tons of Dorado, Sailfish, Marlin and anything else swimming in our world famous fishing grounds! It´s sickening! The local authorities give you comforting words as they do absolutely nothing to enforce the laws they are responsible for enforcing. Once again, the greater good is ignored for a single persons mega profit essentially receiving ¨permission¨ to break the law. So the fishing is great, the challenge is getting to a fish before it´s empaled on a hook of a ten mile long, long line! Now we need help, but we don´t know who to go to. This is classic corruption and when the locals turn to Cartel(s) types to get justice! It´s completely upside down and this is how govt works in Mexico. So where do you go? Like i said the fishing is incredible, but the long liners are raping Puerto Vallarta´s Fishing Grounds!! Any ideas, share them with me, but don´t be from outtside of Mexico, if you´re experienced with situtations like this we can go there. This is how people wind up dead. .. .

Don’t forget we´re still doing our best to hook you up on shared boats, just fire me an email so I know when you´ll be here and we´ll do the rest. The Downtown Store on Basidillo Badillo and Insurgentes is open for High Season and we´re smoking fish now, half the fish is your payment. Call Chris (El Centor Mgr) at (044) 322 112 9558 for details for fishing, fish smoking or to purchase T-shrts amigo, YeHa!

Until next time, don´t forget to ¨Kiss Your Fish¨. . .

Yellowfin Tuna at El Banco, Sailfish & Marlin Increase

                                Yellowfin Tuna at El Banco, Sailfish & Marlin Increase

Written by: Stan Gabruk owner of Master Baiter´s Sportfishing & Tackle

11 01 2014  Bill y Wendy No 4 , Magnifico, Group FishWe all know that predicting what will happen in the world or Sportfishing is almost impossible. Now we can tell you what happened yesterday and what we ¨think¨ will happen tomorrow, but in the end we´re just throwing out a best guess when targeting gamefish. The only thing that balances out fishing predictions is if it happened ¨there¨ yesterday, it could still be happening ¨there¨ today. Of course you´re always disappointed when you visit yesterdays spot and your targeted fantasy fish is nowhere to be found. What is exciting is when you catch a species that you didn´t expect and right now that´s Yellowfin Tuna. That´s right, I used the ¨YF¨word, but it´s far from automatic amigos, but the chance is there!

11 01 2014 Hewett and Reiner party sintextAnyone who knows fishing in PV knows that if you want big, world class fishing, you have to be at either Corbeteña or El Banco (or anywhere in between), both are our famous deep water, deep sea star fishing grounds. Especially at this time of the year when anything impossible can become possible as screaming reels announce ¨Fish On¨. As mentioned earlier El Banco has shown ¨some¨ signs of life in the form of Yellowfin tuna in the 100 to 150 lb range. So you have a chance, how much of a chance you may ask? Well if you`re in the area the chances improve. Black and Blue Marlin, mostly Blue Marlin are also around the area running anywhere from 350 lbs to over 800, just depends on your luck. And for the present Dorado in the 35 lb range are moving into the area as well. With Rainbow runners, Cubera Snappers and Sailfish, there isn´t many species you don´t have a shot at right now! Oh, if targeting Yellowfin, make sure you´re using a kite, keep that between us!

11 01 2014 Yellowfin Tuna 60lbs off El Banco Corbeteña is about the same, Yellowfin Tuna have arrived and the numbers are picking up by the minute. Still the Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado and Snappers  should also catch your attention. Corbeteña is a little cheaper trip, a little closer and for my money, may be a better choice for the next ten minutes or so.  Decisions, Decesions!

11 02 2014 John Curcio, MiJenny, Marietta Islands 400 pxlsIf you´re around the Marietta Islands there is finally some signs of life with some, I said some Rooster fish in the area, tons of Bonito 20 to 45 lbs, Needle fish in the 40 lb range. Maybe a slight shot at Dorado. But Sailfish are close to El Morro and I see no reason why they´re not closer to the Marietta Islands, but there you are. Heading out towards Corbeteña trolling, Blue Marlin have been hanging out around the area, so being in the area is the first requirement amigo! Now if you´re in the area off the point off Punta Mita, you´re still boating Sailfish and Dorado, nothing new since it´s been like this all summer. If you´re looking at only 8 hrs, then these two places will get you some arm burning action.

Inside the bay is great with massive amounts of Bonito, Skip jack Tuna to 50 lbs around Yelapa still, Needle fish, Jack Crevalls are here as well and they´re primarily a winter fish. Sailfish are still being boated by the lucky few in the bay, to me this is unusual, but lately it´s been kinda normal.. go figure.

11 02 2014 Mike Profita Party, Guanatuna II, 8 hrs  Capt Juan, Oliver first mate, full size 2So you pretty much can´t lose when it comes to fishing for the time being. Water temps are slightly cooler, but not cold. Northern water temps around California are dropping quickly so we´re expecting to see Yellowfin Tuna numbers pick up for the late season, same for Dorado. With this being an El Nino year, our fish have been vacationing in Southern California so we´ll welcome them back with open arms and a gaff. Blue water and smooth seas have been the norm, but we´re always on the watch for late season Hurricanes. The full moon will be on us soon, so be aware and have some fun. One last thing, some days it seems that Dorado are only taking lures, so have some blue, silver and pink lures at the ready. Live bait is plentiful with bullet Bonito, Google Eyes, Flying fish and the list of course goes on. For the moment the bite is happening around 11:00 a.m. , so getting to the fishing grounds too early will not help  your situation. But again, the full moon is just a few days from now and the Yellowfin especially will be using the moon light to full advantage stuffing themselves with abundant bait.  Another piece of  useable ¨reel time¨ fishing information that can make a difference in your fishing safari amigo!

233648W5_NL_smNewsletter Extra:  Many of you find I post these same articles in the local news papers and the busiest web pages in PV.  They post my articles a little late and that´s the reason I send these ¨Reel Time¨ fishing reports to the locals. This is information you will be glad you have if you´re heading fishing in the next couple of days…  Hurricane Vance is marching north and will be well outside of Puerto Vallarta, so don’t panic. But it will pass us and this could put some rough seas on us as well as some stormy weather. Now the mountains that surround PV protects us and we´re happy for that! But the track is looking like Cabo will be at the end of it´s track. There is a low pressure front coming down from the north which could push the system inward.  For now we´re seeing calm seas and blue water.  It may also be nothing, but then again, it´s something to keep an eye on if scheduled for a fishing charter in the next few days. Below I show some information as to it´s tracking and systems that are working.

Nov. 4th Update: Magnifico went to Corbeteña, it was smooth seas in the morning, but in the after noon the wind and rain picked up, got windy and the sea´s picked up in size and frequency. But now Hurrican Vance will make landfall before 10:00 a.m. Wednesday Morning, so the storm is on a fast track to the mainland! I have boats scheduled to head out tomorrow morning, Wednesday, keep your fingers crossed.

Whales:  Normally Whales don´t show up until December, but we´re already seeing Whales moving into the area.  Magnifico spotted two today, one with a baby already! This means we need to be watchful for whales just under the surface, fast boats can easily hit a Whale, I´ve done it, it´s not pretty!  Also remember if you´re chasing whales around the bay

Until next time don’t forget to kiss your fish and remember at Master Baiter’s Sportfishing & Tackle “ We Won’t Jerk You Around”!
