Puerto Vallarta fishing Report November 2013

Puerto Vallarta fishing Report November 2013 
Captain Steve Torres picked us up at the Paradise Village Dock  and what a boat! The 35ft. Cabo was even better 
that I had expected. The crew had a full lineup of Calstars and Tiburons as well as every tool, lure, and accessory 
you could possibly think of. The head was super clean with a nice shower and the A/C was awesome! We headed 
out at about 10 knots to the outer banks. In the morning we had arrived and picked up a nice wahoo and dorado 
right off the bat. Within a half hour we say what looked like dolphins in the distance. As we approached it became 
clear that they were tuna..Big Tuna. We saw 100 to 200lber's jumping completely out of the water and putting on a 
show that would impress even the most seasoned angler. We were able to pick up two both in the 150 class. My 
fish was extra mean and kicked my ass on 80lb and a HX raptor. Around 2 hours later I finally had the fish..He had 
teased me by staying around 15 feet down, just out of gaff range for the last 15 minutes. We were unfortunately not 
able to find the school again after the long fight but we did find some other schools that just didn't want to play. It 
appeared that they were feeding on very small bait that was everywhere. We made squid that night and fished hard 
the second day. Day two was much slower but Steve Torres managed to put us on a double Blue Marlin hookup! 
Both fish fought hard and came up dead. I couldn't believe how much fight was in these marlin..I am used to 
strippers but the bigger blues can put the hurts on you. see more info at

Big Marlins love warm water between 80-87 degrees in the middle of the ocean this is what makes
Puerto Vallarta such a great feeding ground there are 2 hot spots for Marlin 36 miles from the
Marina Vallarta a rock named Corbetena, and 50 miles offshore is the Bank these are the 2 places
where all the bigger Puerto Vallarta Sportfish are caught.  The Bank or El Banco is basically huge
under water island where the seas can go from 1,000 to 200 ft in seconds. PV Sportfishing
encourages and supports catch and release with all Billfish We do fish Marlin tournaments that
you can see from all the Marlin photos but on regular day's other then Marlin tournaments captain
Steve catches and releases 90% of the Billfish. 
Puerto Vallarta fishing is blessed as 1 of the best
Marlin fishing grounds in the world and We want to keep it that way.

 1st place Marlin at the 7th international Marlin and Tuna
 tournament in Puerto Vallarta Mexico August 2013We had a great time this last weekend even though no one caught any Tuna or Dorado
I think every boat caught a Marlin at El Banco.Day 1 We departed from paradise village 
at 7am and reached the bank a little after 9am. The team caught live bait and We started
trolling the fishing was very slow for us all day just a small Sailfish nibble in the morning 
but then a little after 3pm We had our first Marlin strike then another and just like that We
had a double hook up.  But since it was already after 3 pm and We needed to be back at
the dock by 6 pm We did not have time to tangle with both so Freddy let his go and the crew
started Reeling in his big  Blue 1 hour 10 minutes later the Blue Marlin was on the boat and 
We were racing back  hoping to make the 50 + mile ride back before 6pm Well captain Steve 
did it again and We were back at the dock with 3 minutes to spare. The Marlin weighed in at 
578 lbs taking 1st place at this years Annual Marlin and Tuna Tournament.
