    I have been fishing with Osuna brothers in Dec for years.
    This time we fished on a new 50' El Pescador.
    I couldn't what to expect before I saw the boat. As soon as I saw the boat in Marina Vallarta, I felt this is the boat I want to fish. :)

    The boat is truly walk around the boat and has lots fo room on the rail for 6 anglers.
    I can see the boat is well maintained.
    As it turned out, We really enjoyed fishing and sleeping on the boat for our whole trip.
    I am still in romantic zone in PV and I will post our detailed trip after I come back from sightseeing with my family.

    We had anglers all over the US. Three from West Coast, two from Mid West and two from East Coast. .
    We left dock around 6 pm and got bait around La Cruz. We headed on top of the Islands. We were confident Capt Danny Osuna would find tuna for us.

    The first day was slow. There were not much sign. When sun started to go down, we had our first tuna on balloon. Thomas fought the first tuna on custom Black Hole Giant rod. It was about 160 - 170 lb.

    Capt Danny suggested to troll live skipjack early in the morning on the next day.
    It was not difficult to catch live skipjack or bonito.
    We missed three hit before we hooked up a decent tuna.
    Fred fought the tuna using custom Black Hole Giant rod.
    We marked tuna all day, but they did not respond to our bait at all.
    They eventually respond to out bait.
    But Cape Danny decided to go down to the Fist Island as fishing reports there were pretty good.

    We started drift on the third day and we started to catch small tuna in 50 lb. I did not bother to take pictures of those small tuna. :)
    One custom Black Hole rod with live skipjack intended for cow got a hit.
    Steve fought the fish. It turned out to be a nice 50 plus lb cubera snapper.

    Ross of IRT Reels were casting around with 7'6" Black Hole Cape Cod Nano rod and IRT 500 DD reel and hooked up a 40 lb tuna on a popper though there were no surface action. He immediately hooked up another one, but the leader line got broken. The tuna was his first on popper ever and he was a happy man. :)

    We were very unlucky. We must had a dozen tuna, but all small though other boats around us caught cow.

    But we have very experienced anglers. They knew we are very unlucky on this trip.
    They all like new 10' El Pescador boat which has lots of rooms on the rail and cabin and bunks are well maintained.
    They all want to come back next year.
    Everyone brought home 50 lb vacuum packed fillet of fish.

    No. The Delta is still in the shipyard in La Cruz being worked on/upgraded. The El Pescador is a lease while the Delta works up.

    Thanks for a great report. :-) Just out of curiosity, how were the accommodations on board??? meals??? etc... And what was the cost??? A few of the guys from work and I went down to Cancun last December. The fishing wasn't very good. Sharks, and barracuda was all we could find. So the guys are interested in PV.

    Looks like they are both 50' Deltas. Awesome platforms for sportfishing.

    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 Temple had ESPN or some fishing show filmed on that boat years ago. When we use to catch cows at Corbetina on a regular basis.

    they have 6 bunks. I heard new 50' Delta will have 9 bunks.
    The cost is $2175 per person based on 6 anglers for 3 1/2 days fishing. It includes everything except tip.
    Cancun for fishing ? :)

    Thanks K Song.
    Yeah, Cancun. One of the guys had fished down there in the spring a few years ago and said it was great. but May sure isn't December! :-)

    I don't think it's that pricy for 6 guys, although it appears this group was 7, the going price for 12 guy's on a 3.5 in P.V. area is around 14-1600. Still a lot of Peso's :)
    I think the good Captain's do very well considering the exchange rate.

    As most bites are from balloon or kite, I think it is too many if you fish more than 6 anglers. I worked as a cameraman and it did not take turn for kite or balloon.
    So the price is not expensive at all considering how hard crew work and how comfortably we could fish and there is no extra for lost tackle and cleaning/bacuum packing your catch.

    On a 3.5 day PV trip you fish for 3 solid days. On an 8 day trip you travel for 2 days, fish for 4 and travel 2 days back. You have a better chance for bigger fish in PV.
