First day of fishing today, caught this one small Dorado, about 10 yellowtail snappers, a couple of triggerfish that I have never caught before. Caught 5 or 6 Big needlefish. I kept the Dorado and 1 snapper and gave the rest to the Captain and his mate. No Roosters to be seen and they tell me this is not the best time?? This was confusing to me, as when I fished from the beach this was the best time of year for the Big Roosters? 70 years old and still learning, dang , just when I thought I had it all figured out ! lol! 

Don't know if there will be any interests in my updates?? No problem if not, I will quit reporting. Fishing Puerto Vallarta area 87465

Here is section of a bulletin boards which discusses fishing in Puerto Vallarta, including trip reports.

http://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/mainland-mexico-fishing-reports-discussion/

There was a Spanish language surf casting club but they don't seem to be active as a club anymore.

Questions from JW,

Fishing surf from boat requires what length rod and gear. Keep us informed.....PULEEEEEZE!

BTW, what is cost for boat, guide, how much time? 4 hours?

Hey JW,

Took me awhile, but tried to get as much info for you as I could.

As far as what size rod and reels, really depends on what kind of fish you are going after. Good thing is, that these most of these Captains have ALL of the equipment needed. Anything from light spinning rods to heavy, heavy duty rods and reels for Tuna and Billfish. Rods like I use for Surf Fishing, are NOT good for use from a boat as they are wayyy too long!! They use a lot of 6- maybe 7 foot rods.

Cost for a boat is also determined on what you as a client would like. You can rent a small Panga for 200 US for 5 hours up to over 1,000US or more for these much bigger faster boats and long 100 mile 2-3 day trips.

The two times I have fished, I took a 28 foot Super Panga which is really great. It has 2 -- 115 HP motors, Sonar, Radio. Have to remember gets you to your fishing spot a lot faster than a single engine 50hp right??  There is some beer, sodas and water included. Bring your own lunch or whatever. This boat is really great, as you can walk all around and no seats to crawl over and lots of room to fight a fish. This is a great setup for 2 fishermen, I think 4 would be pushing it, as there is also a Captain and his mate. Cost for 5 hours--- $400 us.

Yep! I know this is expensive, but you get what you pay for. I have gone the cheaper route before, only to get a boat ride. NOT this time! Gas is super expensive and these high HP engines like the gas. Rods, Reels and line, are top of the line. Some of these Tuna lures cost in excess 50 us and sometimes more, so they are not going to skimp on their equipment. Not to forget a Captain and Mate who knows what they are doing. Of course you need to have some good references, need to do your homework. That being said, I am really very Happy with the Captain and Mate I have. If all goes well, then I will recommend ( OR NOT), later.

Jim W, Hope this answers some of your questions. Surte

Thanks Marv. How many can comfortably fish out of the 28 footer? I assume 2 works best! How much is a normal tip for skipper and mate? The 5 hour rental for $500.00 is for the boat and not per person?

Please provide the name and location of the skipper with cell # also. Appreciate it, talk soon and good fishing,

Hey Jimw,


Yep, we have computer connection problems here too! LOL

How many can comfortably fish out of the 28 footer? I assume 2 works best! For me, I would only want to fish 2 people. How much is a normal tip for skipper and mate? I think 10% would be appropriate. The 5 hour rental for $500.00 is for the boat and not per person? Actually it was $400 US and that is for the boat.

Please provide the name and location of the skipper with cell # also. Appreciate it, talk soon and good fishing,

Jim, later I will give you some names of charter Captains who come highly recommended in the PV area. They have different boat sizes, prices and many options. This way if you need a boat that will fish more than 2 people you can choose. Price also depends on how far you want to go and what fish species you are targeting.

Probably won't report here, not enough interest. If need please PM me.

GONE FISHIN!! Thumbs up

As I told Jim W - had this fisherman caught this tuna off the coast of Japan, he would already be retired from the proceeds of seling the tuna for sushi!

Post by Pescador on Thu Aug 29, 2013 10:09 am

Its been awhile, fishing has been slow the last few days. Lots of wind and rain has made the inshore water pretty dirty, not good fishing for Dorados and Roosters when this happens. The guys that6 go offshore for the tuna are still waiting for them to show up. What a difference a year makes, last year they were killing the Tuna in the months of July and August right through early winter months.

Here's a few of my other photo's.

Not all have to be big to be beautiful.

Still looking for my 50 #er getting close.

Fishing Puerto Vallarta area Img_5617

This is just a baby ( Cubera Snapper) fishermen get these 60-80 pounds or more offshore. Gave this one and the Sierra to Captain. Of course ALL Roosterfish are released!!

Fishing Puerto Vallarta area Img_5616



Yeah, I know I look weird the way I have ahold of this fish. Let me tell ya their teeth are like a SAW! We had at least 5 or 6 of these on and lost all but this one. Sierra mackerel suppose to be excellent eating.
