The way things have been happening around here in Puerto Vallarta’s world famous fishing grounds it´s enough to make you pull your hair out. One day the water temps are down-right frigid, the next day they´re much warmer in the same area.

Everyone in the world has heard of global warming and all the problems that come along with it - the entire United States is an icebox! Mexico is feeling the cold as well, right now we are seeing dropping water temperatures in the 72 to 76 degree range which is about what we would be expecting in late January. So we are about a month ahead of schedule.

The Marietta Islands and El Morro are full of fish. This area has been packed full of large Sailfish recently, as is normal for this time of year. Dorado in the 30 lb range, Rooster fish in the 30 lb range, Jack Crevalls, Bonito, Needle fish, Snapper and more are waiting for you in Puerto Vallarta.

We saw our first early season Blue Marlin the other day. It was caught at Corbeteña and in the 500 lb range. Sailfish are also moving into the area & there's plenty of bait in the water, so it looks like the planets are beginning to align and we may see the beginning of a normal fishing season!
