    trailering my boat down to punta mita

    Punta Mita harbor is only for locals. Your only option in Punta Mita is to anchor out in the harbor and paddle out on surf board or get a local panga to shuttle you. They aren’t cheap, so I’ve heard.

    El Matador report January/1st / 2019

    What’s the trick to catching those Cuberas? Sounds like drifting dead skippies works. Weighted or flylined? Any preferred depth or just look for structure.

    3 1/2 days trip with Capt Danny Osuna on the El Pescador Dec 6 - 10.

    The El Pescador was actually a salmon charter boat in San Francisco many years ago. That is the reason for the high rails on the walk around deck. Typically those boats might have twenty passengers fishing both side and across the stern. Trolling very slow with 2# weights. I believe Josh...

    Good for you Jim. Way to share it with your crew. I see the Marla’s placed third in the Sailfish division and won $100,000 Pesos. What a great third place finish. Surprised the fishing was that slow.

    We went to Bisbee Black and Blue to view only

    Good luck Jim, I know you have a good team! Are there any minimum weight set for fish weigh in at the la Cruz tournament? The Bisbee tournaments do a good job setting a weigh in minimum of 300# for marlin and points are deducted if the fish is under that weight. Just look at the percentage of...

    Todays Blue Marlin

    I personally know Jim's friend / worker Chuy. He has fished enough with Jim to know that all Billfish are released on Jim's boat as is mine. Chuy and I have talked about that.

    On the East coast of the US the Mexican Cookie bait is called a Blue Runner. Is is a member of the scad family and as Jim says they are very durable. Dorsal fin has a very sharp point that can scrape your hand. I use to clip that off. Unlike a Goggle Eye they do get to about three pounds...

    Today many Pompano beautiful Grouper

    Couldn't go wrong with that crew. I was out on a half day with Laura's brother Pacheco since my boat is down for repair. We were in the same spot and also did well on the pompano , until we ran out of squid. Nothing on artificials after that. It was a nice day and Pacheco worked hard to find them.

    where are the dorado?

    I don't have any clue about the nuclear issues from Japan, but as I am sure you know the long liners out of La Cruz carpet bomb the entire area when the Dorado show up. It doesn't take long to wipe out the local fish.
  60. Fishemup

    no fish.no problem

    Nice to know Manny. Jim we'll see you out there in a couple weeks.

    How's the dorado fishing?

    Good for you Jim, that's awesome. About time the tuna are in range for us. I had to come back North early this year and look what happens.

    Maximus - still a gag order?

    Yes they had life rafts. That's what they were in when rescued. Could be seen on some of the news clips. As a boat owner my interest in this issue is more informational so maybe I can be better prepared to handle a similar situation.

    illegal tuna fishing help

    Dorado 12/26/2015 They are here now

    We started just past Punta Mita. After awhile we started hitting the long lines. After clearing the third one from my motors, luckily none got in the props, we headed to the rock. Worked that area for Nada and started s troll toward Nuevo. Ready to pull the plug at 2 when two lines went off...

  87. Fishemup

    Arriving to PV tomorrow back at it on another 2 week trip

    With as much as you like to catch Marlin and I assume you are releasing them. You should join the Billfish Foundation and put tags in a few. It is fun to see if they get recovered and where. I have ten tags and a stick if you want to borrow it and give it a try.
  88. Fishemup

    Thanks for the report, can't wait to get my boat in the water. Sailfish population will go down after this week's tournament. Wish they would put more emphasis on releasing.
  93. Fishemup

    Yesterday at the Rock

    Agree! The long liners out of LA Cruz and Sayulita have knocked the shit out of the Dorado for years. 50 mile limit for commercials is not enforced.

    You should fish the tournament next week if you are finding Dorado and Big Blues. Don't think there will be many Dorado on the board. Thanks for the report. I hope to splash next week.

    Very interesting read Jeff. The web site is Down now, but the sport fisherman need to fight this battle. No one else will.

    5 29 report

    Sounds like a good day Jim, lots of action. Can't believe that water temp. Thanks for releasing the billfish. I am back on the 20th for a quick trip, if the action is that good I may have to splash my boat.
  107. Fishemup

    Sailfish,Toros and many bonita 5/19

    Thanks for the report Jim. Sounds like a good day. Most likely big pargo and they can be tough to hook when your using a big bonito for bait. Have fun.
  108. Fishemup

    No Narco for me, only tuna...

    Very frustrating to see them and they don't like your bait. Mighty nice of Keith to give you a tow out. Good thing you didn't piss him off you might have ended up in Cabo. We live in Nuevo and I agree with you. No big deal on the increased police activity. Go fish!

    81.5 degree blue water at El Moro yesterday

    All on plastic. Had 10 cabbies but never needed them because the dorado were not shy and jumped all over the lures, especially the pink ones.

    Had a half day before Step Son flew out. Started trolling five miles past Mita and hit it hard for Nada. Ran over a long line that had to be a mile long with only soda bottles for floats.

    Fished El Banko on Friday. Very dead from 9-3. Two huge Toros, one nice Rainbow runner all on live bait, downrigger at the high spots.

    Thanks for the update on the tourney, was wondering how it went. Looks like a few of the big boys are showing up. That is one nice marlin. Ana Maria always seems to be on the board in tournaments they enter. They must have their act together. Good job.

    Wahoo in PV ?

    I can confirm a small wahoo was caught this past Sat on Mr. Honeydo's Grady with Capt. Danny Osuma on board. We went to Corbetina to check out things since there have been no reports. Water was green but had some bird activity. So we decided to see if we could make some bait. Put out two...

    Again you saved me some gas money with your report about El Banko! I've heard that El Moro and some days the buoys at Mita are holding the fish. What did you catch the pompano on? I heard if you don't have any sardines or live squid, you are out of luck. Thanks for the report!

    fishing report with no fish caught

    Heard the same report as you, sorry to hear you didn't find anything. One of my crew fished a week ago with Lora off Litabu and caught pompano, so we headed there on Wed. Of course we were a week late and the fish were gone. We trolled the beach with live cabbies and had one rooster strike...

    Did Lora get his 30' Cat to PV yet?

    La Cruz fuel dock - Ethanol?

    Where are they taking it Bogi in the US or at the PV airport? I was going to try and ship some in my suitcase. I did find the Star Tron product at the little marine store near the launch ramp in Paradise. Expensive however, but cheaper then replacing fuel injectors.

    Recommended PV charters (cruise ship)

    Cruise ships come in near the main Marina Vallarta. You would not want a charter out of Nuevo or LaCruz. I would think Capt. Kurt on Esperanza would be a good choice since he has a fast Grady and can get you out and back on your cruise ship schedule. His info is in a post at the top.

    Danny Osuna -- Marla II 322 Pound Tuna Pics

    Bill the guys told me it took almost two hours because they only had a 80# topshot on 130# Spectra. They later switched to 100# topshot when they saw the size of the fish that were being caught. This was the first fish ever caught on Gary Phillips' new Calstar and Avet 50 SDS. I told him to hang...

    The same crew fished with the Osuna Brothers on Sunday and they got a 165" on one boat and a 290# on the other boat. The Osuna's third boat went inshore and pick up a huge Rooster 50+# off Mita. Those Northern CA guys are having the time of their lives. They called last night to rub it in! God I...

    PV Report: July 31 thru August 2

    Great report! Sounds like you put your time in and it paid off. Just looked at the pictures and you are right about catching fish of a lifetime. That is one of the biggest Dodo's I have ever seen. Then a cow and a big pargo, hope you bought a lotto ticket upon your return. Good job Marla crew. Paul

    Fishing P.V. 7-31 & 8-2

    Thanks for the great report. Sounds like you made the right decision to come inshore. Can't believe you caught a sail while fishing for roosters. How deep were you? Don't you usually fish roosters in the shallow water along reefs? Paul

    Now I know I need to sell my TLD 50LRS. I have heard of these frames breaking. Anyone want to trade for a Avet 50W? Good job Danny, a broken reel really added to your challage of landing that fish. Paul

    Fishing Predictions-PV June 24-30th?

    Jeff sorry to hear about your amigo. We can only hope there will be lots of tuna in the next life. I just came back and the rock changes daily. We had a great time on the little guys. Every now and then you would see a massive boil. So they are around! Go get them and think of your friend. Paul

    I will be in Punta de Mita the first part of that week and in Nuevo Vallarta the end of the week. Is anyone else going to fish during this time? I would be interested in sharing a charter or sharing expenses and work on a private boat. Thanks, Paul

    Best gloves for Spectra?

    I use a pair of motorcross gloves. Maybe a little more money but have leather palms and fingers and mine have a mesh back so they don't get too hot. You can usually get a tight fit and they are rugged. Paul

    34' Sportfish vs 88' Yacht, who ya got?

    When you are talking about Paradise Village marina are you just talking about the side where Paradise Village is or are you talking about the whole marina? I was wondering what it is like on the side where Marla is docked? I understand they are rebuilding that side and adding fuel.

    Thanks for the report G, been waiting all week! Excuse my stupidness but what is a Chili Verde? Is it a blue runner, aka hardtail? Sounds like the road to Mita hasn't improved any.

    the difference between pv and punta mita
