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.
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.

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.

The Yellowfin Tuna are still biting offshore about 10 miles past el banco great fishing it is always great fishing when you can find cow Tuna wthout having to do a over night charter you still need a 14 hr day but weill worth it to bring home 1 of these cow’s in a 1 day charter. Sailfish and Dorado have are still abundant in eo[pen waters and La Corbrtena. Sailfish have been biting live baits casting and trolling. Same with the Dorado. fishing off the point has been picking up with alot of Roosterfish, and Jack Crevalle, inside the has been boiling with bonitas and also smaller pacif Jack Crevalle. contact us for more info about fishing in Puerto Vallarta.
We have been going out daily offshore and had over night Tuna trip last week. All week we had daily Billfish hook ups Blue and Black Marlin and Sailfish the biggest Marlin caught last week was a nice Black that was around 600 lbs the average size has been between 200-400 lbs. We caught 6 Marlins and 4 Yellowfin Tuna on our overnight Charter with Marco captain Freddy and tuna in photo .
Well We had some rough weather and tropical storms last week but the rest f the month and the last few day’s have been fantastic fishing big Black Marlin and Cubera Snapper fishing at el banco. We have also been catching Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi mahi, and Sailfish. This is the big time Puerto Vallarta fishing season it is only going to get better for the next 2 hopefully 4 months. This is the time of the year when you normally do not need to travel 120 miles offshore to find some big Yellowfin Tuna which is what alot of anglers are looking for when coming to fish in Puerto Vallarta. This last week We have caught several Yellowfin Tuna over 100 lbs at El banco and Corbetena so they are out there just not not biting in great numbers like further offshore.
