Great time on the My Marlin. Captain and first mate were top notch and ended up putting a nice blue on the boat.

review by  Joe Dusek


September – November are alot of fishermen favorite months to fish in Puerto Vallarta these are the months where everything is biting offshore Blue and Black Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and Dorado.  You might be lucky enough to even catch all 4 in just one fishing charter

We have a big month of Yellowfin Tuna fishing this last month the big bite continues about 15 miles past el banco so even though the fishing is hot do not think it will be a easy task. It is still about a 3 hr ride from the Marina so if you after Tuna you need a 14 hour to overnight charter. It seems we are finally in between seasons for Billfish I did not think it was going to slow down since Marlin and Sailfish have been biting consistent all year I guess all good things must come to an end but the big question is when will the Billfish bite start again Normally the Blue and Black Marlin fishing season is mid June to mid December but this last year it has been from June to March with even still a few caught in mid March.

Puerto Vallarta fishing report August 2014.

Finally the Yellowfin have shown up at Corbetena through out the year thePuerto vallarta fishing report Yellowfin Tuna bite has been consistent but has been 120 miles offshore this last Monday We finally started to see some life at La Corbetena 36 miles offshore last Monday August 11th there was Schools of Tuna averaging  30-150 lbs. Hopefully We will start seeing some 200 + lb Tuna fish by the end of the week. There has also been Smaller Tuna on the south side of Banderas bay averaging 5-12 lbs but the bite  been in the evening  between 5pm  and 8:30 pm. The Small Tuna have been biting on small Sardines.  Now back to offshore the waters at the bank were green on Monday and even further offshore by the Islands but Corbetena was nice and blue with a few boils of Tuna, We also caught Sailfish, and Marlin it really felt like Puerto Vallarta fishing is suppose to in middle of August. Though Sailfish and Marlin have been hot at Corbetena all through the summer it just has not felt the same since the Tuna were biting a 120 miles offshore and a overnight fishing charter was needed to reach some Cow Tuna I am very happy to report You can catch some nice sized Tuna on a 10 or 12 hour day right now.

Puerto Vallarta fishing report July 2014
Open water and La Corbetena have been abundant with Billfish so far this month We have caught Sailfish and several Blue Marlin. The Billfish have been biting live bait, and artificial lures in open water trolling and in area’s around the Corbetena rock. Dorado have been biting inside the bay in dirt lines and logs floating due to the rivers over flowing into the ocean from the rain We have been having at night time. Corbetena has also been hot bottom fishing We caught several huge Grouper in 30-40 lb range this month as well. Bandera’s bay fishing has also been very steady with smaller Skip jacks great for Marlin bait if you are going further offshore or just great to catch if alot of action is what your after. The most asked question I have been receiving lately in emails and phone calls has been is there any cow Yellowfin Tuna fish? and the answer is yes though the Yellowfin tuna are not biting at the local Puerto Vallarta fishery. You can catch these cow sized fish further offshore 120 + miles has been red hot with 100-300 lb class Yellowfin Tuna. The big game Yellow fin tuna fishing trips are not your regular Puerto Vallarta fishing charters in order to go 120 miles offshore it is a 2.5 fishing charter so it is definitely for seasoned anglers. So whether you are a big game sportfisherman or just want to have a family day on the water there is a type of fish for everyone right now  in Puerto Vallarta.
