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.

Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish and Dorado. the 1st couple week of the month the hot spot was a little north of la Corbetena about 40 miles offshore it was a daily Billfish hgot spot producing Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, and Sailfish. The Yellowfin Tuna bite has picked up about 15 miles past El banco past el banco averaging 80 – 150 lbs. Angler Mark Taylor caught one of the biggest tuna’s of the month aboard the My Marlin as seen in photo the tuna was caught outside of el banco on 10/14/15 on a overnight fishing Charter with captain Steve Torres.
It is have been a up and down month of fishing here in Puerto Vallarta. The Billfish have beenn the most constistent bite We are still seeing alot of Blue Marlin, and Sailfish biting at Corbetena and el banco as well as nice surprise of sharks this last week also biting offshore. inshore has been slow since the storm there is aslot of bonitas and a Jack Crevalle. But the mahi mahi have seemed to dissapear the last couple days but I’m sure that will change soon. The Water is nice and blue and heating up it looks like it is going to be big Summer fishing season in PV. Congratulations to Philip Mathias who caught the big Marlin in picture below while fishing on the My Marlin with captain Filipe July/18/2015.
