Puerto Vallarta fishing charter review

Puerto Vallarta fishing Charter review aboard the My Marlin

Determined. This is how I would describe Captain Steve and mate Jose on the fishing vessel “My Marlin”. Their pricing is fair, if not lower than what you get back in the states, they use quality equipment, and they are goal oriented. I am not a professional angler or commercial fisherman. However, I have fished most of my life recreationally and understand it is called fishing and not catching. From the beginning, I told Damon that I wanted to book a 12 to 14 hour trip to try an land a marlin. Upon boarding the boat, Captain Steve and Jose greeted me with excitement and optimism. Captain Steve stated it was going to be a late bite with the full moon the night before. On the way out we discussed his strategy for the day. We would start trolling once we cleared the bay, try and catch bait at the high rock and then proceed to the bank. Upon getting in the area of the high rock, we immediately had a sailfish bite. The fish played with the bait and never took. The guys decided to concentrate on the bait for the marlin and shortly after we boated a nice skipjack and yellow fin tuna. Captain Steve went crazy!!! He kept yelling “WE ARE GOING TO CATCH A BIG FISH WITH THE BIG BAIT!!!”. While trolling a smaller live bait on top water, a big sailfish hit and we boated shortly afterwards. During the sailfish bite, our yellow fin tuna bait died but Steve changed the position of the skipjack and we were back at it again. Captain Steve said we would stay as late as it took to get a bite. Personally knowing how hard he and Jose had worked, if we did not catch another fish, I would have been satisfied with a beautiful day on the ocean with a nice sailfish catch. At 3:15PM it looked as though the sailfish was going to be the fish of the day. Then it happened!!!! When the marlin hit, the boat went into a controlled fire drill. While I had the marlin on rod, Captain Steve yelled instructions and Jose cleared the cockpit area. A little over 2 hours later, the black marlin lay on the deck of the boat. Hi fives and hugs were given out repeatedly. Captain Steve’s hard work had paid off and my goal of catching a BIG BLACK MARLIN had been accomplished. If it had not been for the hard work and dedication of the captain and crew, this event would not have been achieved. If you want a relaxing fishing trip, quality equipment, and a first class captain and crew, book with the guys of PV Sportfishing. When returning to PV Mexico, these guys will be getting another call!!!!!!!!

Roosterfish

Roosterfish

The fishing really has heated up this last week we have been catching alot of Sailfish and Roosterfish at el moro. Corbetena and the el banco have been producing Marlin between 100-350 lbs also Sailfish, Dorado, and Gouper. The Marlin have been biting lures or live Skip jacks slow speed trolling  as Sailfish has been the same technique the Sailfish have also been biting live goggle eye baits and have been an average size of 60-110 lbs. The Rosterfish I think have been the biggest story this last week averaging 20-40 lbs Roosterfish is one of the most sought after Game fish in the wold especially big ones like these. It is all great signs for the big season coming this October and November the fishing is red hot and the fish are just going to get bigger in the upcoming months.
