My Marlin Sportfishing

Visit Puerto Vallarta, join My Marlin Sportfishing Charters, and reel in some big fish to remember. With over 20 years of experience in the charter fishing business, Captain Steve Torres will do everything in his power to make your trip productive and memorable.

The My Marlin is a 31’ Bertram offshore sportfishing boat, one of the world’s most renowned sportfishing vessels. Recently restored, it features a range of navigational and safety electronics, and has twin Cummins engines to propel it quickly towards some of the best fishing spots in the ocean. It is also a comfortable boat for relaxing, and features a full head, kitchen, bed, and multimedia system.

You’ll be using top of the range equipment, with Tiburon reels and Calstar rods provided, as well as premium sportfishing lures by Black Bart, fluorocarbon hooks, and fresh line. With Capt. Steve, there is no worry that you will be let down by faulty gear while reeling in a big one.

Puerto Vallarta boasts a year-round fishery, but the charter advises you fish from July through November if you are hoping to hook a big Blue or Black Marlin. December through May is the best time to battle the smaller, but even more spirited, Striped Marlin.

The captain and crew also specialize in catching huge Yellowfin Tuna, which is closest to shore in September and October. During the rest of the year, it is recommended that you take an overnight charter to target this spectacular game fish.

All the gear you will need for a fishing trip to remember is included in the price of the trip, and the crew will also happily clean and fillet your catch after the trip free of charge. Simply bring snacks and drinks and get ready for a trip to remember.

Visit Puerto Vallarta and explore these prolific waters with My Marlin Sportfishing Charters, making some great new memories!
