Deep Sea Fishing in Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta may be a small resort city, but the angling opportunities it offers are huge. It overlooks the Bahía de Banderas, for starters. The real jewel in its crown, though, is its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, which holds a diverse number of big game fish. Because of this, deep sea fishing in Puerto Vallarta is something every angler should experience!
 
If you choose to cast a line here, you’ll soon realize that the name of the game is variety. Travel a mere 25 miles from shore and you’ll hit El Morro, a collection of deep sea underwater rocks and canyons. Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Sailfish all lurk here, and you’ll have the chance to encounter them all on a six-hour trip. 
 
Head further from shore, around 35 miles out, and you’ll encounter White, Black, and Striped Marlin. You’ll also potentially come face-to-gills with big Yellowfin Tuna, as well as the ever-present Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo. Oh, and then there’s the Sharks. Big Hammerheads lurk here. Local anglers recommend opting for a 10-hour trip so you don’t miss out on the action. 
 
Finally, if you’re an angler who likes to test your limits, you can travel a whopping 50 miles from shore to see what’s in store. The water is rough and the journey is long, but you could be rewarded with Grander Marlin, as well as every other fish mentioned so far. An overnight trip is a must, so make sure you’re comfortable with spending that much time on the water.
 
You’ll find a whole host of deep sea fishing charters in Puerto Vallarta, ready to take you out. Captains here offer a variety of trips and can tailor your adventure to suit your needs. As the city is small, all charters tend to depart from Marina Vallarta, which provides direct access to the deep sea fishing grounds.

Don’t expect too much, sometimes you are lucky and sometime your not. This is rainy season and fishing is more difficult, but if you happen to get the right crew you will be successful.

The fishing was a little slow at times, but the Spanish Mackerel were biting big in the morning. Afternoon slowed down a bit. Were not able to link up any Mahi or Marlin, but did grab a Rooster to end the day!

Last year I fished the bay and got skunked. It is definitely worth the extra time and money to fish the blue water.

Pangas are great for 2 on in-shore, close-in fishing. If you're after bigger game fish, charter a bigger, faster (yes more expensive) boat.

Spend the money and go out for at least a half day. Anything less than that is a waste.

Pick the right boat. Someone who will work hard to got you to the fish. We've had other experiences where it seemed the captain didn't care if we caught anything and didn't want to waste any gas. And sunscreen, do not underestimate the need for sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat.

Where lots of sunscreen and drink lots of water. If there's any chance you might be prone to seasickness take Dramamine before the trip.

This month should be start of marlin, sailfish etc. But not this year, some unusual weather patterns and the sea not yet cooled down meant fishing was hard work, with no sign of either.

Time of year means a lot in the species you can target. Make sure to do research, only booking your trip after you know what species you want to go after. As far as the smaller species like Jack's they are very close to the marina and also a lot of fun to go after if the big fish aren't in the area.
