Water Temperatures Drop, Marlin Numbers Thin, Dorado the Dominant Species

It looks like change is coming. Water temperatures have dropped drastically this week. Water is dirty, not unusual but very late in the season. Dorado is the dominant species right now but with lower water temperatures things could change soon. With changing currents this will bring the dirty water and the cooler water temperatures. It’s very early in the season for a drop of this magnitude, obviously this is the result of La Nina. It’s interesting that when the water temps dropped, the whales showed up. Also there are a few whales in the bay now. So things are changing, but the fishing surprising enough is still pretty good.

Yellowfin Tuna, Black Marlin Move in, Fishing in PV Ticks up a Notch!

As we move into August, we get deeper into our prime fishing season. Fishing in PV or Puerto Vallarta is on the rise. Black Marlin move in, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado, Rooster Fish, and the list goes on. Blue water, Trash lines and “Bucket List” fish fantasies are happening now.  

Wide Open, Spread out Fishing, Marlin & Sailfish Dominant

In the world of Big Game Fishing, nothing ever stays the same from day to day. For the last few weeks it’s been wide open. By that I mean the fish are moving around the area with no real concentration for any real length of time in any one location. So, this means you have to be prepared to move around and find the fish. This is actually normal, but for those on a thin fuel budget this could be an issue if targeting large Marlin, Sailfish or Tuna. We have fish, but we don’t have them in a barrel.
