Yellowfin Tuna Holding Their Own, Marlin More Abundant, Dorado still MIA!

Yellowfin Tuna Holding Their Own, Marlin More Abundant, Dorado still MIA!

Written by Stan Gabruk

 

As we enter the most productive time of the year for monster trophy gamefish we see the clientel is just not coming out to our world famous fishing grounds of Puerto Vallarta. The fish are out there, the conditions are just about perfect, the fishermen are not here. You can point fingers, you can make excuses, you can speculate, but you will find empty fishing grounds and boats putting people out fishing at desperate ¨going out of business¨ pricing. What does this mean to the general consumer looking to go fishing, well it means you can find a boat for just about any price you can imagine. For those who are in Marina Vallarta the fishing has improved from the last couple of weeks. For those with the disposable income, world record sized fish are out there waiting for you. So, the question being put to you is this: ¨Can You Come Out and Play? ¨

The last few weeks I have talked about how the rains were just not doing their job. The trash line all but disappeared, bay water was mostly blue and the fish were sparse unless you were around Yelapa to Cabo Corrientes point at the south end of the bay. Well we´ve had a fair share of rain and the trash is flowing down the mountains. Now this may sound kinda nasty, but in reality this is where the fish are starting to return to the bay. Bait fish are feeding on the organic materials, drawing in larger fish and you get the drift. Small Dorado, Skip Jack Tuna, Snappers and Needle fish are just chowing down on this fish version of fast food. Those looking for Skippies or Skip Jack Tuna are still in luck with then running in the 30lb range from Los Animas increasing in size as you get closer to Cabo Corrientes or farther out in the bay. But for bay fishing, this is a real treat with mostly now dirty water. The rain thing goes both ways. Those with some Mexican Savy know that the dirty water in front of the river mouths are a great place to hook into great tasting Roballo or Snook and Snappers in the 30 to possibly 40lb range. Don´t for Nuevo Vallarta, going up stream there a ways will produce some really large Roballo in the holes by the freeway pilings, but you did not hear that from me…

Sailfish are still on the fickle side. Not too many hanging around the Tres Maria islands, but if you go just a little further south to El Morro they seem to be loving this area for some reason. Not exactly on the island, a mile or two off towards the south will produce some great action with Sailfish abundant, but not exactly jumping into the boat.

Around Punta Mita and Sayulita there have been some better signs of Dorado off the buoys, but they are still only around 25to 35lbs if you´re lucky. Don´t know what happened to the Dorado this year, but if you are like me, you notice they are arriving later and later in the year, they are smaller than you would expect and frankly these fish were always a ¨Day Saver¨ when it comes to getting clients fish. Something strange going on here and it doesn´t look like things will be improving in the years to come. Something to think about, something to care about…. Sailfish are north of Sayulita and out about ten to fifteen miles off the points running in the 80 pound range which is decent for Sailfish amigos.

Corbeteña has shown some signs of life where Yellowfin Tuna and Marlin are concerned. Mostly Blue water with bait means the Yellowfin are having a hard time leaving the area and we can appreciate that for sure. We are still looking for the 200 lb plus sizes when it comes to Yellowfin. I don´t know what the deal is, but we are following three years straight of El Nina and El Nino years. So it may just need time to straighten itself out current wise. Rumor has it Cabo is not having a great year as well, but you should look up Cabo Reports to see what they´re saying there. Cubera Snappers still running in the 50lb range, Midsized Sailfish from 60 just under 100 lbs. Rainbow runners, Amberjacks, Black Marin in the 500 to 700lb range, same for Blue Marlin. You may need to head south west off the rock to find fish, but this is normal. Live Bait is working and the bite is happening anywhere from 9:30 on for the moment. Live bait is still king, especially Google Eyes, but lures will work well for Marlin and Sailfish. Colors are changing, but pink and purple are killing them for the moment.

El Banco is still hot and cold, one day you´re up, the next it´s dead. But this is fishing and if you are one of the lucky ones who are hitting the high spots, you have these fishing grounds to yourself and if anything of any size is hungry, you own the place. You can literally experience what it was like to fish our World Famous Fishing grounds as it must have been in the 50´s or even 60´s when Puerto Vallarta was only a locally known spot for huge fish. Same species here, Sails, Marlin, Cubera Snappers, roll the dice. For me, Corbeteña is the place to be for the time being with the best opportunities for coming in with bucket list fish, if you remember the movie. Check the latest conditions before heading out for sure.

With hurricanes passing us, then hurricanes on the opposite coast from us in Cancun and Veracruz, the weather has been strange, not horrible, but cooler than normal which is being reflected in the fishing. The fish are out there, but they are moving more than I would expect and even if there is bait in the area, Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna are not exactly jumping in the boat either. When things get like this it is very, very important to have a captain with a full line of lures and equipment to make sure if there is a trick that needs to be done, the crew has the tools.

Amber Jack at El Banco, Corbeteña and The Marietta islands

Another thing, as a safety reminder, many boats operating in Marina Vallarta are not using Marine Radios, many are using cell phones. This means they can´t hear the reports in the bay or farther out from other boat. It also means they cannot call for an S.O.S. if there is an issue. Now they are supposed to have radios like this by law, but there you are. If the  boat does not have a radio, do not pay this person, you are expecting basic safety equipment and this is the most basic piece!

Until next time, don´t forget to kiss your fish….

Don´t forget to visit Marina Vallarta with its 150 shops, restaurants and professional services.

Hurricane Hector Monkey Wrench, El Banco and Corbeteña Weak at Best!

Hurricane Hector Monkey Wrench, El Banco and Corbeteña Weak at Best!

Written by Stan Gabruk

 

After what has been a hit and miss fishing season Hurricane Hector popped it´s ugly head out and caused a week of less than spectacular fishing, rough seas and believe it or not, not too much rain. After the Eighth hurricane to pass Puerto Vallarta this year we are now deep into hurricane season. The problem with this hurricane is it formed about 200 miles off shore just south of Puerto Vallarta and it moved slowly directly west making the local conditions less than favorable. Now we all know this means the fishing was not good this past week. But we all know fish move and these hurricane things are short lived things so the fishing will be bouncing back by the time you read this article.

As of this moment Hurricane Hector is pretty much a thing of the past, but it will still bring in some swells and rough seas for a few days. These rough waters include inside the bay for the last few days. Those who were lucky enough to be able to handle the ¨rough chop¨ were able to catch fish inside the bay though. Yellowfin tuna last week were much larger at Los Animas to Yelapa, but 30 lb Football YF tuna are not bad fare for a four hour trip! The trash line has essentially disappeared with the low amounts of rain we´ve seen this year as well. So even the fall back position of a Trash Line was just not there to save the day. Smaller fish around the rocks and structure closer in are doing well, but these are very small fish and well just aren´t what people are looking for. Since you are reading this after the fact, everything should change shortly. If you are set on bay fishing, then the river mouths are full of Snook or Roballo as they´re called here in Puerto Vallarta. Boca Tomatlan or the river mouth in Nuevo Vallarta is primed and full of these white meat fish. Shame more people don´t target these great tasting fish.

The Marietta islands being at the opening of the bay had a few days of sea sick rollers but that has calmed down now and the waters are clear and blue. For those looking for small fare, then  Skip Jack Tuna, Needle fish, Snappers to 25lbs, Amber Jacks to 40 lbs and even Jack Crevalls (yes, these are very cold water fish but they are here for the moment). Sailfish have pretty much moved out of the area, blame the Hurricane.

Not Moster Yellowfin by any means, but Fun Sized and Great Tasting

El Banco and Corbeteña, normally I split these two locations but for the last few weeks one is hot, the other is cold and vice versa. Before the hurricane we had 500 lb Blue and Black Marlin, 140lb Yellowfin tuna, Cubera Snappers to 50 lbs, Sailfish, Amber Jacks and more. For now we are on hold for these species to return with the bait. All I can say for now is stay tuned…

The story is pretty much the same, we´re just standing by for our fish to come back.

For the most part we have not seen the invasion of Dorado as we should have seen in July. Here we are in Mid August and we are still wondering where they all went. Of course there can be speculation of over fishing, there are plenty of facts out there that will support this theory. Me, I don`t know, I do know we are not seeing a Dorado per se, so whatever the cause, I know the results!

Another thing that is not normal is the low levels of rain we have seen here in Puerto Vallarta. Even though we are in the middle of the Seasonal Rains time frame, there is not trash line to speak of in the bay.  So what is a money maker for most boats heading out, it just is not there for the most part. Now this could change quickly, but the pattern is there and it is not even close to normal levels from a person perspective.

The good news is the water is still mostly blue in the bay, there is plenty of bait in the bay. Corbeteña is Blue water and perfect water temperatures of 89 degrees. The same goes for El Banco, all the basic elements are perfect, just need the fish to move back in.

Really not too much to share about fishing this week, this will happen. Mother Nature threw us a curve ball this week so stand by for better news to follow in the next report.

Until next time, don´t forget to kiss your fish….

Yellowfin Tuna, Black Marlin Increasing Abundance, Fishing Grounds R Yours!

Yellowfin Tuna, Black Marlin Increasing Abundance, Fishing Grounds R Yours!

Written by Stan Gabruk

 

After years of fishing and writing articles one thing you learn for sure is when you expect things, it can only breed disappointment. Right now the opposite exist here in Puerto Vallarta when we´re speaking of world class fishing at El Banco and Corbeteña to name a few. Yellowfin Tuna are still not Monsters, but they are abundant. Black Marlin are taking baits, but you have to be there to experience the thrill. Blue Marlin as well with Snappers, Sailfish and the other usual players. Blue water, perfect water temperatures, plenty of bait in the water, what more could you want, an invitation. High Season for fishing is now coming into its own and if you are not here, then reading about it is a distant second.

Yellowfin Tuna, Not Monsters, but they´ll do, Corbeteña is your best bang for the buck right now….

Most of my readers know we´re in the Rainy Season for Puerto Vallarta. It´s a love / hate sort of thing for us here in PV. We love the temporary relief we get from the heat and humidity for sure. But the rains this year are not like other years, in fact they´re more hit and miss than a daily thing. Because of this the trash line is fading and unless you´re in front of a river mouth, the water has been  mostly blue and clear for those looking for a short day with something to show for it. Now as is normal inside the bay come summer time can be disappointing since so many of these pirate guys are selling the dream of Trophy Gamefish inside the bay. Well you won´t find Marlin in the bay like they say, but for some freak reason Sailfish are hanging around Yelapa and Las Animas area. They have been hanging out here for weeks now. The big surprise and I mean surprise is that we´ve seen 60 lb Yellowfin Tuna in the bay in this area as well. Yes, I said sixty pound Yellowfin Tuna in the Las Animas to Yelapa are, no kidding. Forget the trash line, it went away with the mostly miss rains we´ve been having lately. Dorado are still small, throw backs for the most part. Snappers in front of the river mouths with Roballo or Snook in English. Smaller fish in and around the rocks and structure. For those looking for some larger Yellowfin Tuna, not huge, you can have some serious arm burning action in a short day. So now is one of those times I speak of that when I say it´s time to go, it´s time to go… so, it´s time to go… that is if the wifey will LET YOU. For the guy who says the wife doesn´t speak for him, then get your butt on a boat and have some fun in our deserted fishing grounds … enough said.

Outside the bay, El Morro is still alive with Sailfish and Red Snappers in the 15to 25lb range. The Marietta Islands are to be honest a little weak, there are Needle fish, Bonito, Skip Jacks, Snappers and other smaller gamefish. For the most part I would focus on in the bay at Yelapa for the moment or head straight to Corbeteña / El Banco. Remember by the time you read this everything can change, so keep your ears on or call me, I would be happy to fill you in.

El Banco or Corbeteña, the song remains the same this week as it normally does this time of the year. Yellowfin Tuna are here, ranging from 45 to 150 lbs, it just depends on what you come across. Black Marlin are still running 500 lbs, but who´s complaining? Cubera Snappers to 50 lbs, Sailfish and even Blue Marlin are all happening now. The thing here that surprises me is the fishing grounds are empty. Now it could be an economy thing, it could be a money thing, but it is something. For those who have the ability and with willingness, we are looking for the explosion. That means all of a sudden we´ll start seeing Monster Yellowfin Tuna, huge and I do mean huge Black Marlin with their Blue Marlin cousins. You name the species, they´re out there NOW! Well, Dorado is still a little weak for some strange and unknown reason. It´s not a perfect world so we´ll do with what we got.

Sailfish with Shannon Trahan, he´ll be back fishing with us this November with GuanaTuna II our 28 Super Duper Panga with head!

North of Sayulita to Guymas, Sailfish are taking it to the limit. I mean they´re everywere and they are hungry, but live bait is not working like you would expect. Believe it or not Dead bait (all locations not just Sayulita north of Punta Mita) is working very well. Lures of purple, orange, pink, blue and green colors are working well in combinations. Which combination works, well everyday is different. But my best guess is purple combinations are a great place to start on the lures. Notice I said nothing about tiger prints and yellow.

As I mentioned earlier the rains have been on the subtle side and the trash line has all but disappeared. If you´re in Puerto Vallarta and you can get out immediately after the rains from the previous evening, well you´ve got a strong chance of hitting Dorado, Snappers and other game fish looking for an easy meal.

Also with the lack of ¨rains¨ the water in the bay is surprising clear and blue. This could explain the larger Yellowfin Tuna in the bay. But Blue Water is the fisherman’s friend which is why El Banco and Corbeteña is doing as well as they are. Blue and clear water allows fish at distance to see and chase your baits. Simple I know, but there you are.

Ok, so when is the bite? Well you´re either going to be the early bird or you´re going to be the last guy out there at all the fishing grounds since if you´re not there ready to go as the sun comes up or goes down, then you will miss the action. The bite time makes a difference, so remember when  asking for fishing information from Mr. Pirate guy walking the malicon or boardwalks. Anyone call sell you a boat with a cheap price, but if Mr.Pirate has no answers you would be better served by someone who does. Our first priority is to put you on fish that will bite, not just look at your bait. So keep this information in your back pocket, if any information is important in this article, the bite is what you really need to know. You can fake the rest.

Cubera Snappers 50 to 60 lbs, Magnifico is the boat to be on in Marina Vallarta!! Everyone in Vallarta knows it, why don´t you?

For those of you who want to go fishing and you´re looking for a deal, let me know what your budget is, I can get you on a fine boat at a reduced price. Now if you want a higher level boat with well known captains then we have that as well. Master Baiter´s is a well rounded company and we do what we can to accommodate our clients as long as these boats deliver what they promise. Some do, many don´t so be sure you are getting what you´re looking for from us at Master Baiter´s Sportfishing and Tackle.

Until next time, don´t forget to kiss your fish….

Puerto Vallarta´s Perfect Fishing Conditions, 500 lb Blue Marlin, Blue Water, Abundant Bait!

Puerto Vallarta´s Perfect Fishing Conditions, 500 lb Blue Marlin, Blue Water, Abundant Bait!

Written by Stan Gabruk

 

After six hurricanes passing us by so far this year, dirty water, no bait and a mixed bag of other night mare conditions that hit us at El Banco and Corbeteña have moved out and what replaced it is what dream fishing conditions are made of. Perfect water temperatures between 82 and 90 degrees set the stage for 500 lb Blue and Black Marlin increasing in abundance daily. Flying fish for bait are moving in as well, every species out there love flying fish! Yellowfin are also abundant in the football sized ranges for the moment everywhere past the Marietta islands. It´s all coming together now. The long winter wait for world record sized possibilities in our world class fishing grounds is over. If you are looking to boat a ¨Bucket List¨ fish, now is the time to start making preparations. From this point forward the fishing will be more intense for those with the inclination and the time. But be prepared, this is no game for pansies and I don´t mean flowers!

Things are much the same this week with conditions improving ever so slightly daily as you would hope to expect come August. The conditions are right as the stage is set for larger Yellowfin Tuna to move in as they normally do at this time of the year. As we move into August it turns into Yellowfin Tuna Season. So don´t be discouraged or disappointed if you´re here in PV now, this is normal and the calendar is never something you can hurry.

Another Yellowfin Tuna ¨Football¨ …. Once more on Andelé …. They may not be huge, but there are herds of these looking for your bait!

The area between Corbeteña and El Banco is just alive with action when it comes Yellowfin Football Tuna ranging between 30 and about 60lbs. Now for Marlin and Larger YF Tuna this is bait. So you can catch some fun sized Tuna without the monster fight or hit Black or Blue Marlin in the 300 to 600lb range. Blue Marlin for now is the dominant species at Both Corbeteña and El Banco. Black Marlin is sprinkled in the mix, but as a whole Black Marlin are really not ¨in¨ as yet. Corbeteña and El Banco are seeing Cubera Snapper surface feeding and running about 50 lbs of pure dinner table delight. Sailfish are here as well, they´re everywhere, enough said. The difference this week as I mentioned in last week’s article the area between Corbeteña and El Banco is where many a tournament winner has been boated. This week those going between these two locations found Sailfish, Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna Footballs. So just a remember, fish move amigos and sticking to one location or plan will many times bite you in the butt. For those with the time, money and inclination it is well worth your time and fuel dollars. The nice thing about Footballs is they are not an hour fight, now it may take you twenty minutes or so, but this is a nice fight for most of us. Now the Monsters and Cows, referred to of tuna over 200lbs can take an  hour per hundred pounds in a chair, so if you are looking for action  but not the sore muscles, then these conditions are exactly what the doctor ordered amigos!

Yellowfin Tuna at Corbeteña on Andelé…

At the point of Punta Mita and around the corner to Sayulita, same story as last week, Sailfish, Dorado and little else if you hang close to shore. But like always there are Marlin in between the point and El Banco. If you are staying in the Punta Mita are, the fishing is worth if off the beach boats

El Morro and the Marietta Islands are not exactly fishing machines right now, but they are doing well if you don´t mind Sailfish, Pargo or Red Snappers in the 30lb range. Skip Jack Tuna, Bonito, Needle Fish and more are there and there is plenty of action as always. Small kids will not be intimidated by these fish, so no worries. It´s worth the time and money, but there are no larger fish except Sailfish in the area.  Eating fish, there are plenty. So weight the options.

At this time of the year you always have to deal with the dirty water that surrounds the shoreline where the fishing is less than spectacular. That doesn´t mean there are no fish if you´re in the right place and using the right baits. Those interested in some great action and fish for the table should consider the river mouths as opportunities others ignore. Well the nationals or local Mexican fisherman know where to find dinner for sure. When you are in the area where the fresh water meets the dirty sea water you will find Pargo or Snappers, Roballo or Snook like crazy! Those who ignore these options and go straight for only Dorado, Skippies or other species that they read about will find the Trash line their best option. Inside the bay we´re seeing more blue water than is usual. This simply means the abundance of smaller Dorado and Snappers are feeding on this fish Mc Donald’s! There are also Skip Jack Tuna, Bonito, Needle fish, Dorado as mentioned and who knows what else. But you´ll never know how it is first hand if all you do is read my reports. If you have never been on the water, come to my shop I will take pity on you and give you a ¨get your ass on the water deal¨ you won´t be able to say no to…. So there you are, call me amigo, you´re covered!

From this point forward the Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna will become more abundant and larger in size. The Fishing grounds are all but deserted so you don´t have crowding issues at the rock or over the high spots at El Banco. All and all, everything is perfect and the fishing is right on time. We´ve seen several world record sized fish boated in Puerto Vallarta´s fishing grounds so the possibility of another world record Tuna is more than possible. This is the time of year to be here in PV Fishing or just enjoying the city and all it has to offer.

Not Huge, But Abundant YellowfinTuna at Corbeteña and El Banco
