Fishing Report May 2019

Nuevo Vallarta fishing report May 2019. The fishing in Nuevo Vallarta is hot as a firecracker. Warm waters are moving in and all kinds of baits are following them. This large amount of bait brings in all kinds of fish the good eating red snapper the large California Bonita and the Spanish mackerel still hanging around right here in Nuevo Vallarta. When you see these pelagic fish moving you will see the large game Fish moving in right behind them. This is what’s happening in the month of May. The water is warmed up 77 degrees hanging around 78 degrees and we start seeing sailish, Marlin and mahi -mahi. These fish come in to feed on these large bait balls.

What’s the best way to catch a fish right here in Puerto Vallarta. All the really good captains and good boats use a setup with high-speed lures short with teasers, and some long baits. We also stay on the lookout with pitch baits. These pitch rates are usually goggle eyes and once pitched into a school of sailfish or marlin the action begins. We’ve been also using the same pitch baits for some large schools of striped Marlin. There are few other pictures here in Nuevo Vallarta fishing with the results. This morning we had a double Marlin hook up and the other day we had another triple hook up on striped Marlin. Fabulous fishing in Nuevo Vallarta fishing.
