The fishing for the month of August here in Puerto Vallarta has been strong. We have been having lot of families and some fantastic trips here but school has started the last week and now it time to start fishing for the big ones. I'm talking 8 hrs deep sea fishing trips here in Puerto Vallarta plus a few hrs. The summer time can be great here in the bay but most of the time the big marlin are hanging around the Corbentena and El Banco. The fishing there can be epic at times. Big tuna , marlin, sailfish and mahi mahi also known as dorados. The Corbetena is 35 miles from Puerto Vallarta and El Banco is 50 miles. On these trips we usually fish early morning high speed lures and then switch to skip baits. On arrival to one of these spots we always look for the bait movement. Where there's lots of bait movement there will be marlin and big tunas. We like to start with the 5 to 10 lbs. bait and do a slow troll about 1 to 2 knots. The marlin can't resist these baits. And when ya hook up hold on for a 3 to 4 hr. ride in the chair. The water temp is holding around 80 deg. is most places and this makes for good fishing here in Puerto Vallarta. Come on down and wet a line with us and have some summer fun while it last. The beers are cold and the fishing is hot.
