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.

Puerto Vallarta fishing report April 2016
We have a big month of Yellowfin Tuna fishing this last month the big bite continues about 15 miles past el banco so even though the fishing is hot do not think it will be a easy task. It is still about a 3 hr ride from the Marina so if you after Tuna you need a 14 hour to overnight charter. It seems we are finally in between seasons for Billfish I did not think it was going to slow down since Marlin and Sailfish have been biting consistent all year I guess all good things must come to an end but the big question is when will the Billfish bite start again Normally the Blue and Black Marlin fishing season is mid June to mid December but this last year it has been from June to March with even still a few caught in mid March.

Puerto Vallarta fishing Yellowfin Tuna
Puerto Vallarta fishing report August 2014.
Finally the Yellowfin have shown up at Corbetena through out the year the Yellowfin Tuna bite has been consistent but has been 120 miles offshore this last Monday We finally started to see some life at La Corbetena 36 miles offshore last Monday August 11th there was Schools of Tuna averaging 30-150 lbs. Hopefully We will start seeing some 200 + lb Tuna fish by the end of the week. 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.
