Perfect conditions for Dorado, Sailfish and Blue Marlin

Living in a tropical place like Puerto Vallarta, Hurricanes can and do happen all the time.

Most are hundreds of miles out to sea and frankly the general public doesn’t know anything about Hurricanes until they come close to shore. But this last week we had a slow moving Hurricane that screwed with the fishing for three days. So the report this week is positive and we expect the perfect conditions for Dorado, Sailfish and Blue Marlin to continue. As we move into “High Season” for fishing we’re in tournament season, which of course means the time of the year to boat that “bucket list” fantasy fish. Feeling lucky?

After the last tropical storm that passed us, it pushed massive amounts of varied bait into the area. Corbetena has benefited greatly, but at the same time created a challenge for even the most experienced captains. And naturally when there’s massive bait, fish follow. Sailfish are good sized and north of the rock. Dorado are in good numbers, but they’re only around 20 lbs, but many are larger. Blue Marlin are running the entire area so be patient. We’re having a disappointing Black Marlin year, water temperatures have been a little “cool” for Blacks that prefer 88 degrees and up. Now they’re be in cooler water, but if they’re happy where they are, why move and that seems to be the situation. As mentioned there are “lots” of Dorado and they’ve been running with large smaller Yellowfin Tuna “footballs” in the 20 to 40lb range. With Blue water and an occasional trash line you’re fishing options couldn’t be better.
