We are giving you the last Puerto Vallarta fishing report January 2020. Starting off with a bang here. We all had a incredible Christmas and fantastic New Year. The fishing in January is starting off right where we left off in December. The bay of Puerto Vallarta is still having some warm waters and this means great fishing here in beautiful Puerto Vallarta for all kinds of pelagic fish.
We’ve got some of the hard hitting striped Marlin showing up and really good numbers. The good eating mahi-mahi have been here for the last couple of months and have decided to stay as the water is still relatively warm for the winter months. The water is still warm enough to catch some blues and black marlin just have to get out there and look for the thermoclines. The thermoclines is where they are feeding. We have the satellite service we use tariffin which works great. This gives us the ability to know exactly where to go before the leaving the dock and find the hot spots for fishing for our clients.
If you’re looking for yellowfin tuna and you’re going to need to run out towards the Corbetena and El Banco. A 10 or 12 hr. trip is best for the big tunas. In the water it’s still warm enough to catch the yellowfin tuna here all along with other pelagic fish that they deep sea fishing trips like to catch offshore fishing. So if you’re looking for the Tunas be sure and check water temperatures before leaving the dock as this will save you a lot of time checking temperatures offshore.
For those of you coming down this winter here in January the Bay fishing is just as good as it gets. The yellowtail are still producing a lot of fun and fast action for all the folks fishing here. We’re getting some of those skipjack tuna sometimes boiling on top of the water this is great for the fly fisherman that we’ve been taking out and folks that like to catch fish on the fly. . If you’re looking for fast fishing action we’ve got you covered here in the bay and beautiful Puerto Vallarta where are the friendliest people in the world live.
One of the great things that Puerto Vallarta has here in the winter or the arrival of the humpback whales. These majestic creatures come down every year late November all the way up to the end of March. They come here to out bay to have their calves and then the other ones are to make more baby whales. For those of you that don’t know much about the humpback whales thet are around 20 tons and same ones that came here last year will come again the following years have their calves. The calves when they’re born about 3 tons and 12 ft long very beautiful to see playing here in the bay. So if you’re coming out on one of our offshore fishing trips or just staying here in the bay you’ll still have a chance to see these great humpback whales have play.
