I am at Newark Airport waiting for a flight to Puerto Vallarta.

We are fishing cow for 3 1/2 days with Ozuna brothers. Dong M Shin is joing from Korea for filming for Korean fishing TV show. I hope he fights a few cow for the show.

After fishing cow, we are going to south for rooster and jack from the surf. Rooster is not in season, but we hope we find a few for the filming.
Carlos made a scouting trip to the south and found rooster yesterday.
Weather looks nice for the whole trip.

Rooster in not in season, but we had pretty good rooster fishing in Dec a few years ago.
And I got a nice rooster in early spring this year which is not in prime season.

My best 282 lb yellowfin was caught in PV in 2005. I am way overdue to break the record. :)

We had pretty good trip by catching about 10 tuna upto 130 lb, 2 sail fish, one dorado, 70 lb Amoco jack and 70 lb wahoo.

The first day started around the 1st Island and we had decent bites, but we decided to go to up to the 3rd Island looking for cow.
But we didn't see any tuna there and we went down to the 1st Island for the rest of the trip.

The highlight of the trip was to fight 3 hours 50 minutes for a big cow by Fred using 60 lb line. We had to get down the leader line to 60 lb and 80 lb to get bites, but unfortunately big cow hit the bait. :) After losing the fish, we check the drag and it was 26 lb.

We hooked up a 400 lb marlin, but it pulled the hook after jumps.

It was very enjoyable trips with good anglers in gorgeous weather.

Excellent report! We also made the trip up and around San Juanito last week and saw no tuna up there. Weather was super rough the night we went and ended up on the east side of the islands, out of the weather. I was stopped by the navy for the first time and they were suupper cool!! checked paperwork and no problemos!! We saw some breaking tuna between first and second island and jumped on em to no avail. Ended up heading to the rock at 3 in the morning, where we shot solid pargos and saw some nice tunas and wahoo!! thanx again for your report and best of luck the next time you are here!!

That's a negative! Maybe bring a hoodie for early morning on the boat but that's it! I do wear long sleeves when on the water, but only to block sun. Short, t's and flip flops! I've been down here 2 1/2 years and have not worn shoes once!!

Bring an ice chest or buy at Walmart or Costco in PV. They wrap it at the airport in cellophane for about $10. Depending on your ticket, it will count as checked luggage.

Very nice!

Whats the best month for Roosters down there? What is their typical seasonal month range?

Do you find certain moon phases make a difference on Roosters?

Thanks!!
