Puerto Vallarta fishing report June 2019 Blue Marlin

We caught one of the 1st Blue Marlin of the season last Sunday fishing with Team My Marlin and captain Steve Torres.  We caught the Blue Marlin offshore outside of el banco about 60 miles offshore of Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Captain Steve caught the Blue trolling Lures.  The crew also caught a Wahoo and released 2 striped Marlins.

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.
