 Puerto Vallarta fishing report for August is in full swing and hot action. The bait balls arrived along with choras. This is good on many levels. The sardines bring the mahi-mahi, sailfish, stripped marlin and lot of other game fish. When the bait moves here and stays out for a long stay of time this can be only one thing. Incredible fishing in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. The sailfish, mahi-mahi and striped marlin all have a water temp. that they like to swim/feed in. The fish are just like us when we take a shower/bath. We all have a comfortable temperature we like the water to be. Will so do all fish. This is one of the main reasons we are always checking the water temp. of the Pacific ocean near our bay of flags. These fish love to be in the right water temperature.
There is a reason that will keep fish in a location or move them to another location. Food yes food. Bait. No matter what the water temp is or how blue the water is. If the bait the fish love to feed on is there ya have an incredible chance to land the big one that most people are fishing for here in Puerto Vallarta. When we find the bait that these pelagic fish love we have found the great fishing spot here in Puerto Vallarta. We like these conditions where the fish are thick and there for the catching. I use terrafin satellite service for all of our boats. If it’s one of our super pangas 28 ft., or med size sport fishers 32 ft. or one of the 40 ft sport fishers with all included.
The big baits we caught today are a good sign that the big fish are here and will be staying. The big tuna and marlin love to eat the 5 to 10 lbs choras. Bait for us that fish for these big guys. Ya must have a good boat that has tuna tubes are you are just wasting your time. If you can find the big baits and load up the tuna tubes your chances of catching a big marlin have increased tenfold. When the water temp starts rising and the two favorites baits start showing up these means game on for fishing here in Puerto Vallarta. The marlin will be here and so will the best fishing in the world. Come on down and try your hand of catching one of these big trophy fish that swim in these waters of the Pacific ocean and the are that surround Puerto Vallarta Mexico.
This last week the bay fishing was hot for snapper, yellowtail, Spanish mackerel and other game fish. Best bet was 6 hrs in the bay on one of our super pangas for smaller groups or one of the larger boats for 4 or more people wanting to fish here in Puerto Vallarta.
The offshore action has be incredible. The striped marlin have been hanging around for the bait that I described above along with sailfish. These trips can be done in 8 hrs or maybe a little more time on the water. It’s best to call and speak with Capt. Peter Vines toll-free to set up a plan for your fishing charter here in Puerto Vallarta before you come down to find the right boat and the best trip for you.
Until next time Fishful Thinking
