Puerto Vallarta fishing report June 2017 Big Tuna offshore

Puerto Vallarta fishing report June 2017

The Tuna bite is exploding offshore Puerto Vallarta.  On overnight charters we are averaging Yellowfin in the 100-300 lb range.  Captain Steve and the team are fishing in San Blas Sailfish and Marlin tournament this week from the 21st to the  25th. Last time we fished this Tournament captain Steve won with  a 517 Black Marlin on the 2nd day of the 3 day tournament See Marlin video hopefully he will have the same luck this year.  I will post a tournament report at the end of the week.

Overnight Tuna fishing report with Team My Marlin

Puerto Vallarta fishing report-My Marlin March
My son and I took an overnight charter from Nuevo Vallarta March 1st to the 2nd with Team My Marlin, Captain Steve, Freddy, and Alex. We left at 2 am and went to sleep in the comfortable forward sleeping quarters. I awoke during the early am hours as nature called and noted that we were pulling a Panga behind us. I thought that we had stopped to help a disabled Panga and went back to sleep. We were awakened by Captain Steve yelling get your a…. up were hooked up on a nice tuna. We rushed out and no sooner than we were on deck another hook up occurred. Now my son (33y/o) and I were both hooked up on the biggest tuna of our lives and virtually giddy and unable to stop smiling.  We were out 70 miles or so and it was the fishing charter of our lives. Totals were 21 tuna and 4 dorado.  Steve is a kite master and to see a tuna hit a Caballito is like a bomb exploding on the surface of the sea. SPECTACULAR!!!!! After it was all said and done we had two around 180 lbs and 12 in the 100 lb range, with the smallest about 45 lb. One dodo was around 35 lb and the rest smaller. The crew was first class and Steve confirmed why he has won so many tournaments. This guy is part fish! The crew was magnificent as well. We lost only one of every 5 hook ups which is pretty good for this size tuna. We hooked several ourselves which is even better than a hand off or kite hook up.Back to the panga? Turns out Capt. Steve was so confident of a big trip that he pulled the panga behind us specifically for the large ice capacity in the middle of the panga. There were 3 young guys on the boat and they fished around us for the entire trip. The fish never even got close to warm and were either on a stringer along side the boat or in the ice chest of the Panga.  Freddy the Filet showed his mettle as well with his expertise at cleaning and filleting these big boys for us.

Team My Marlin with 1st Place Marlin with a 481 lb Black Marlin
Team My Marlin win the  56th annual international Sailfish and Marlin Tournament with a 481 lb Black Marlin.  Captain Steve Torres caught the Tournament winner the 2nd day of the 3 day tournament with live bait on a down rigger trolling the canyons at El Banco. We started the day at 1 am lost 2 smaller Marlin early in the morning but it was all worth it when this 481 lb black Marlin hit the decks about 12:30 in the afternoon.

Puerto Vallarta fishing Review My Marlin

I had the opunity to go out on a 12 hour day of fishing with my wife, daughter and father on the”My Marlin,” skippered by Steve Torres and crewed by Oscar on 12/29/15.
This is the second year going out w Steve and he does not disappoint. Starting with Damon who does a great job in setting up the trip and communicating all neccessary details, I wanted to have the opportunity to catch a
marlin as well as dorado. Steve and Oscar did an outstanding job letting us know what to expect and how the day would unfold. We trolled and had an early dorado hookup. Later Steve found floating debris and it was game on with the dorado. We caught five monster dorado (mostly bulls) I missed one. That gave us a total of 6 for the day. Other boats came to us after seeing our hookups. They weren’t catching anything upon arriving; we had the right bait. The best was yet to come. After about 15 minutes of beginning to troll again, the marlin
hit. With superior boat control by Steve, I was able to boat my first blue marlin after a 1/2 hour fight, weighing in at approximately 300 lbs. Right after it was over, Steve said, “Let’s get another one.” That’s confidence. My
family and I vacation in PV every Christmas and I would never consider another boat or captain.

Puerto Vallarta fishing Review

There are only three places on the globe which have world class Black Marlin. Australia, Panama, Mexico. PV in October and November is second to none. I’ve made it a annual pilgrimage.
Captain Steve Torres on “My Marlin” would be my first choice. He’s the best live bait “slow troll” Marlin fisherman I’ve ever met.

I just got off a 3.5 day expedition. Fish counts say it all. 1. Black Marlin, 1. Blue Marlin, 1. Pacific Sailfish, 1. Big Bull Dorado, 1. Nice Yellowfin tuna. 25 long eye jacks (at night). I can honestly say it was the best fishing adventure I’ve ever had. I’ve chased those elusive Blacks for 20 years! Captain Torres and crew (top notch & fun) made that dream come true.

Yes there’s bigger, more luxurious charter boats to pick from in PV. I don’t know about you but I’m there to fish, period. If you like to sit inside with air conditioning until a fish is hooked? Then this isn’t your kind of boat or crew. Remember a nice marlin will keep you in the sun for at least a hour or two. It’s better to become “one with the heat”. You’ll suffer less.

I have to mention the food served on the 3.5 day trip. Typical day eating at sea: fresh sashimi, fresh ceviche, pineapple, mangos, numerous veggies I could name, roasted chicken. The crew were excellent cooks. We even went into Punta Mita to unload fish and go out to dinner to celebrate catching a blue & black marlin all in one day. Steve recommended the Blue Shrimp. The captain not only can fish, he can pick great restaurants too.

Would I recommend My Marlin  Sportfishing’s Captain Steve of My Marlin?  Put it this way. As soon as I got within cell range I booked to fish the PV Tournament with Captain Steve and crew next November.

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

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

Puerto Vallarta fishing report April 2016

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.
