Puerto Vallarta fishing for Marlin and yellowfin tuna. We left the docks at 5 am and reached the Bank by about 6:45 am, there was bait all over as soon as we put the lines in the water we reeled in 5 bonita's rigged them up and starting trolling, live bait a couple teasers and black and purple black bart lures, at 8 am we had our first bite a huge dorado about 50 lbs , 5 minutes later we hooked a nice 60 lb Yellowfin tuna, then a big marlin struck it was a nice blue about 200 lbs we did not boat it but an hour later we had another strike this time a nice 400 + lb black marlin it took Mark about 2 hours to pull it in and i was surpized when he still had enough energy to nail 3 more tuna's after that! What a day we got to the docks around 6 pm total 1 black marlin, 6 yellow fin tuna and 1 big Dorado! tournement season is here and Puerto Vallarta will be holding its 54th anuual marlin and sailfish tournament November 12th here in the Marina Vallarta with over $300,000 dollars in prizes we should have a great turnout. this is the big Puerto Vallarta fishing season those 500 + marlins, and 300+ tunas you read about are always caught between September and December we are always excited to see what record fish will be pulled out of PV this year!
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
