Quickie Fishing Report, July 28… The fishing here in Puerto Vallarta continues to improve as we see Black, Blue and Striped Marlin setting up house at El Banco and Corbeteña. Corbeteña being the closer and most active blue water location. Lures of Yellow and Blue with black tiger prints have been working well, but with the flying fish back just outside the bay, there is no shortage of bait out there. Remember flying fish are their favorite cuisine, so flying fish lures may work well also….
Sailfish are abundant at Corbeteña and there have been Yellowfin Tuna running with the brown porpoises. The spinner dolphin will have Yellowfin Footballs running with them also, so this is all good news. Look for the channels between El Morro and Corbeteña to be fertile with plenty of Billfish species.
Same goes for El Banco, about six to ten miles before El Banco coming in off the Punta Mita point, anything can happen right now. More Marlin, More Sails and there have been some 300 lb Yellowfin Tuna boated off Summertime, a private boat that spends time traveling up and down the west coast of the Americas in search of the perfect fishing grounds….
There are Mahi Mahi or Dorado which ever you prefer to call them, but they are chickens and they are immature. Leave them to grow and keep them another day. But there are commercial fisherman out off the point of Punta Mita fishing Mahi illegally with nets that surround a fishing buoy, they tie off the bottom, then the top and pull the net upwards. This traps the younglings, old lings.. It does not discriminate and the fisherman aren´t either. I walked past a Mexican owned restaurant with a whole chicken Dorado on the plate… it made me mad, but there is nothing new about that….
The main secret out there right now is to find the clean water. Lately there has been a break between the clean and the green water just before you come to Corbeteña. Now remember this will change daily, so be patient and cross your fingers… such is the inexact science of fishing…. Gracias a dios! Thanks to god in English!
Bay is kinda dirty, but planer boards will make a difference getting baits down under the surface…. And don´t forget to keep your speed down, logs, coconuts, even floating dead animals or things like refrigerators have been seen floating out in the bay lately. This happens come rainy season, you just have to deal with it as best you can… and don´t hit a turtle whatever you do!
Right now the deals to Mexico are incredible and there are no safety issues to you or your family in 95% of Mexico. Don´t be scared about what you hear, mexico is a big place and the bad guys are on the borders keeping the drug shipments steady delivering to the strong demand, market in the states. I fear that Mexico will always be the conduit for American Drug Demand so you all better get used to it until the demand dissapears….. which I just don´t see happening in the near term.
OK, this is a brief report, so we’ll keep it brief……
And that’s your quickie for today amigos….
