Freshwater Fishing Articles |

Everyone loves to be Puerto Vallarta for  the month of February. Some of the obvious reasons are perfect weather, sunny skies, fantastic lodging, nightlife and incredible fishing. Deep-sea fishing in the winter here is a Lot like Christmas, ya never know what you are going to catch. The following species of pelagic fish will be had inshore and offshore. Try your hand at fishing for marlin,sailfish,wahoo,tuna and mahi-mahi.  With the warm waters coming and going it keeps us guessing as to what the bite will be tomorrow. The one constant thing we can count on is good fishing in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.

The sailfish,tuna, and marlin love the semi-warm water that we have all winter long. When most of United States and Canada are putting their boat is storage we are in  full fishing mode here in beautiful Puerto Vallarta.  With the warm waters and an abundance of bait you just never know what you can catch here. We have all kinds of  fish, but with the constant changing of water temps and currents, it keeps us on toes or should I say our boats.

If you are looking for marlin fishing in the winter we have right here for some offshore fishing. The plan will be for 8 hour to 10 hrs or even 12 hours depending on where the blue water is and the bait movement. If you follow our fishing reports I always say follow the bait and you will find the fish. The huge marlin love the warmer water but will not starve themselves to death.  We all have to eat and so do the marlin. Hence we have to follow the baits and the other fishing conditions that are tale-tale signs the fish will be biting in our area.  If the conditions change so do we. Follow the fish to success.

The sailfish swim in temperatures that can range from 75 to 80 degrees water but with some exceptions.  We see these fish I  the summer when the water temp is above 80 deg.  That is what makes the winter fishing in Puerto Vallarta so nice are the perfect water temperatures.  With all kinds of bait like mullet, sardine and goggle-eye,bonitas, chorras there’s nothing holding us back here in Puerto Vallarta fishing. If you want excitement try fishing with 5 to 10 lbs baits for out blue and black marlin.

The mahi-mahi   aka dorados love the water temp rom 68 degrees to 82 deg.  We have that water temps most of year-round.  The best water tempatures are in the winter months here in Puerto Vallarta bay fishing. To catch these fish be sure and know where the water temp breaks are at in the bay. We use Terrifin and this will put us on the fish zone most days. The mahi-mahi fantastic fighters are just like us and love the warm water and will be here most of the year especially in the winter. Come down and give mahi-mahi fishing a chance inshore or offshore.  Best bet is a charter of 8 hours for some thrilling action and an incredible table fare. There are some of the best-tasting fish anywhere.

The bay fishing holds very steadily for the winter months. We have the Spanish mackerel,skip-jack tuna, yellowtail, and snapper that keeps our clients happy even on short trips of for to six hours.  Most days we can load the boat up with some good eating fish along with some fabulous fishing . Be sure and check availability before coming down , February is right around the corner and we will be booked up before ya know. A quick email or phone call can have you on one of our boats in the tropical weather hauling in a big fish while landing the fish of your dreams. We are only a phone call away for exceeding your expectations
