The summer fishing here in Puerto Vallarta is one of the best times to fish if not the best. Check the fishing report august 2018: For short trips, there are yellowtails, bonita, snapper, Spanish mackerel and much other game fish in the bay. These trips are perfect for those who don’t want to spend all day on the water. The length of these trips would be 6 to 8 hrs.
For folks that want to fish for sailfish and mahi-mahi, the fish is great just offshore. The water is still warm and holds mahi-mahi also know as dorados here in Mexico. The best bet is to fish one of the current lines early in the morning for dorados and then in the afternoon go for the sailfish. November is the very best month for sailfish here in Puerto Vallarta fishing.
For fishermen that want to go for the big tuna and marlin, the action is always hot this time of the year offshore. There are three main fishing spots we fish during this time of the year. The Corbetena is one of the best and can be done in 10 hrs if you on the right boat. That means be sure you have a good sportfisher that can at least cruise at 15 knots and if not rent a good boat.
The next place that holds big tuna and marlin is El Banco which is 50 miles offshore and most of the really big fish come from this spot. It’s an underwater knoll that rises from 800 feet of water to just 50 feet and holds bait there almost year round. All the fish big game hunters are looking to catch is here. If you fish El banco 10 times 9 times you will come home with the fish of a lifetime.
The legendary Marias Islands
Marias are known as the ultimate fishing grounds. Here is one of the top 10 places to fish in the world. The islands are 80 miles offshore and we do 2.5-day trips out to the islands for the trip you will never forget. I been there numerous times and have never had a bad trip there. They hold tuna, sailfish, marlin, dorados, snapper and all the above in great numbers. The Maria islands are restricted as for where we can fish, as Mexico had a penal system there that holds about 3000 inmates. New update here in Nuevo Vallarta. They have been removed at the fishing grounds. There are four islands and the fishing here is great year round.
The choice is yours from 4 hrs. to overnight trips but Fall fish in Puerto Vallarta can’t be beat
