Striped Marlin Disappear, Football Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish and Killer Whales

The more things change, the more they stay the same. We’ve seen some small changes this week in our world famous fishing grounds of Puerto Vallarta. Water temperatures are still a steady 85 with bait and water conditions just this side of perfect. Blue water, Sailfish, Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna are here for the taking. Dorado are still small, but we won’t complain. The whole area from the beaches to Corbetena are full of action as we continue deeper into High Season for fishing in Puerto Vallarta.

Warmer Currents Move Into the Marietta Islands, Dorado and Yellowfin Reappear

For years now I´ve been writing articles on fishing here in our world famous fishing grounds or Puerto Vallarta. In a normal season we would be seeing the end of the summer fishing season as the Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna and Sailfish filter out and head south for the winter. During unusual conditions like El Nino or La Nina the word ¨normal¨ does not apply. This year as you know if you read my ¨stuff¨ that we are in the second La Nina year in a row. This came after an El Nino Year. So for the last three years we have seen all sorts of conditions we ¨normally¨ would not have to deal with. So what does that mean to us now? Well all I can tell you is fishing is a mixed bag right now and if you are one of the thousands that have come to expect ´easy´ fishing, then you are in for a surprise. If you are looking for ¨action¨ then we`ve got game amigo. If you´re a little flexible and open to all that can happen, then you´re the person I am writing for again this week.
