Team My Marlin win 1st place Marlin with a 517 lb Black Marlin
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.
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!!
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
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.
Trip Date March 2013

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.

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.
Puerto Vallarta fishing Charter Review aboard the My Marlin October 2016
Great time on the My Marlin. Captain and first mate were top notch and ended up putting a nice blue on the boat.
review by Joe Dusek
September – November are alot of fishermen favorite months to fish in Puerto Vallarta these are the months where everything is biting offshore Blue and Black Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and Dorado. You might be lucky enough to even catch all 4 in just one fishing charter
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!!!!!!!!
