High Tides Fishing

High Tides Fishing shows the absolute best of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The father and son company is run and operated by Captain Michel Langelier and his Assistant Jamy. They fish in and out of the Bay 40 hours a week, putting their clients on top of every species the Pacific Ocean has to offer.

Whichever kind of forfeit you are after, be it fishing, snorkeling, or surfing, High Tides will make it happen. Grab your surfboard and tame the waves with the crew. Take a dip in the morning waters and explore what’s hidden under the surface. Or even better - go fishing!

The crew specializes in fishing with light and heavy tackle, trolling, popping, and jigging. They will show you the best spots to land your very own Sailfish, Roosterfish, Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, Tuna, Seabass, Mahi Mahi, and Blue and Striped Marlin.

All of that magic happens onboard a 30’ Super Panga center console. It is a spacious vessel that can hold up to 4 anglers. Its twin 90 HP Suzuki engines will power you to the fishing grounds at a top speed of 50 knots. The boat is outfitted with navigational and fish finding electronics, along with other professional accessories.

All trips come with everything you need to make a great catch possible. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, drinks, and a fish cleaning service.

    This trip is made for the angler who wants a day with more action then just trolling. During this trip the angler will cast a lot. On this 12 hours inshore fishing day, you will run 30 miles outside of the marina all the way to the south point of the Bay. You will be targeting mainly Roosterfish, but there are also opportunities to catch a Cubera Snapper or a Snook. Of course, when you are fishing nearshore, you always get a lot of bycatch which makes it for a lot of action.

I fished all my life back in Canada for smaller species and every year I took a vacation in Mexico. When I went deep sea fishing, my dream became to do that every day! So I moved from Canada to Mexico and bought a boat. The rest is history.
