Overnight Tuna fishing report with Team My Marlin
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.
Trip Date March 2013
Ben and Benny Hourani
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.

Inshore fishing We have been catching Jack Crevalle, Bonitas, Skip jacks, Needlefish, and a few smaller Mahi mahi. Right now offshore Billfishing is what is most hot so if you want a Sailfish or Marlin it is great time to be fishing in Puerto Vallarta.
