Team My Marlin win 1st place Marlin with a 517 lb Black Marlin
Day 1
1st day of the tournament captain Steve decided to head north we had spotted some big Dorados in the same area the day before and decided to test our luck but it was cold not even a bite.

Day 2
Captain Steve said we are going to the bank to troll some big live baits and catch a Marlin around 10 am that’s exactly what happened the black Marlin hit a live skip jack leaped in the air and the fight was on 1 hour 10 minutes later the beast was on the boat great fight great video of the Black marlin leaping in the air the Black Marlin set a new record for San Blas Tournament 517 lbs!!

Day 3
We hit the bank again lots of bait and smaller tuna’s we hooked 3 smaller Yellowfin tuna’s in the morning all about 30-40 lbs then decided to troll back slow and see if we pick anything up, around 1 pm We had a big Dorado strike the crew reeled in the big Dorado in about 10 minutes and We headed back. The first 2 days there had not been any qualifying Mahi mahi so we headed back for weigh ins and thought we had won Dorado also but 10 minutes to 6pm We were knocked down by .8 of a kilo so we took 2nd place Dorado 33 lbs and 1st place Marlin 517 lbs.  Great Fishing Tournament We will definitely be back next year

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.

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.
