Unbelievable experience with PV Sportfishing!  
Thanks so very much for an outstanding time.  Out
who found the dorado the first day and all other
boats came to where we were after.  This is
experience at its best.  Dorado after dorado with the
biggest estimated to be 30lbs.
Within 5 minutes the second day, we had our first
dorado on and more followed.  An hour later,
BOOM, we hooked a marlin-what a fight!  After forty
minutes, we landed an estimated 160lb striped
marlin. I never expected to catch a marlin but this
dream was fulfilled with PV.  The crews were
OUTSTANDING-very friendly, very experienced and
they tried extremely hard to find the fish and to
assist in the process.

Thank you PV Sportfishing and crew for perfect

Btw, don't be intimidated by what is offered in the
hotels regarding fishing charters.  Book with PV
Sportfishing and you won't be disappointed.

I had a  great  2 days on the Sirena we caught 2 blue
marlins, 4 sailfish 2 big tuna's and a couple big mahi
thanks again
Marco solidino

Everyone had a great time.  Captain handled the
boat amazingly well and we were never long
between strikes once he settled into chasing the
school of tuna.  Crew were pros, always hustling, no
downtime whatsoever, deck always cleaned
immediately after any action.  Hooked up a triple
header and landed all three smooth as silk, the last
of which was our second largest, approaching 5
feet and upwards of 120 pounds...  We landed 7
tuna - all good fun and 2 of really good size

Hi Damon,

Congratulations to you and the crew of the Sirena.

In 2 days of fishing, my son and I caught 25 dorado
and one 70# tuna.  All the dorado weighed in the
double digit range, including the 50 lb. one my son
caught.  Of course, the one fish we lost in 2 days of
fishing was a monster cow yellowfin; which I intend to
find next year when I come back to PV.

salfish at the end of the trip was the best part. we
were somewhat disappointed up to that point. the
mahi mahis were fun to catch but didn't quite make
the trip worthwhile. my husband will be talking about
his sailfish for a long time to come and is already
wanting to come back during the peak season. your

and were working so hard to make sure david
brought that sailfish in. i hope we can fish with them

My son and I had a great time fishing with
you and the crew.  I wasn't sure what to
expect my first time way out in the ocean,
but the trip exceeded my expectations.  
The cabo was a beautiful vessel, the crew
helpful and fun, and the captain obviously

Steve and Damon,
My wife and I want to thank you for the great fishing
trip.The mahi was great on the grill.Had a little trouble
getting through customs in the U.S. but it made it
home still partially frozen.

Captain Steve and his first mate were quite the pro's
on the water, definantly know your stuff. My poor wife
took two days to recover from the exhaustion of
catching fish. That is a good thing. Go ahead and
post the pictures on your web site. I have a guy, Bill
Loudermilk, who I recommended to you guys. He will
be heading your way to book a trip in October with
his son.  I may have a couple more clients to send
you as well.

I was hoping to buy a t-shirt with your charter
company name on it. Do you have shirts?  I would like
to get a couple for me and my wife.I will be back next
year with my sons and several other guys to do a
double trip. You will hear from me then if not sooner.

Thanks again,

Thanks for a great charter
We all had a great time that first sailfish is going on

and the charter We will see You next year for sure.


Arturo and Mate Mike were just great.  The
day started with a fast ride out to the
fishing grounds.  In the pouring rain Mike
got to work and changed up the lures
numerous times as the Captain saw
different signs of fish.  We ended up with 1
Black Marlin caught, 1 Blue Marlin
Released  At the end of the day I asked to
catch some snapper,  Well after 30
minutes we had 5 snapper and a grouper.  

It goes without saying me and my boys had

The fishing trip was great! It was a true hunt for the
Black Marlin in mid January and we succeeded with
an 8 1/2 ft beauty. We also landed two dorado that
were prepared at Victor's dockbar immediately after
arriving back at the dock. Delicious! The boat was
fantastic and knowledgable crew. We highly
recommend this charter.

Wanted to let you know we had a great
time on Wednesday. My friend was able to
land one nice 12' long Blue Marlin and
unfortunately I lost a real nice tuna and a
Black Marlin, which ran to another boats
lines. That was a little disappointing but
the fight was still something I have never
felt before and will never forget. We were
new to the big bill fish game and are now
hooked....nothing compares!
Freddy and the guys were great. It was a
little slow in the morning, but Chava
reminded us to be patient. Not long after
that we hooked up and had fish on the rest
of the day.
Thanks again and we will be back!

My fishing trip! Felipe y Felipe were outstanding
and had us hooked up with our first sailfish within
1/2 hour of setting lures. From the chatter on the
radio, not too many other boats were having any
luck, but we managed to pull in 2 sailfish at 120+
lbs each, and 1 striped marlin at over 100 lbs. I
grilled up some of the marlin that night, and it was
Muchas gracias para todos. I had a great time on

not like sea food at all. I packaged and froze the
remaining meat and brought it home with me. FYI -

I bought a  cheap foam one, and the airport gave
me a hard time.
Hey Damon thanks for everything we had 2 great days
as you know  me and my wife went out with Steve and
Freddy on the luhrs the first day I caught a 400 lb black
marlin and a 340 lb yellow fin tuna by far the largest fish
I have ever caught! so I went again on me and my wife's
one year anniversary it was a little stormy in the
morning and we caught a nice lighting storm but around
12 pm we got a double hook up we thought we had
some nice tuna again but they both ended up being
huge black marlins I will be back down soon and give

560 lbs+, the sailfish was 9 ft. long and the Bull dorado
was 64 inches. We caught 5 other dorado and asked

Damon thanks for the great time fishing for two days in

Marlin.  I never saw her, but with the size of the bait
she took (8 lb skip jack) and the line that was peeled
also caught my biggest Dorado ever, over 5 feet long.  
Day two was when we hooked up the Marlin and

PV Sportfishing has once again delivered
a super trip full of fish.  Cesar is a “Tuna

in shock that we caught so many fish.  
Approximately 25 tuna (we lost count) and
one dorado including one 80 pounder and
one 50 pounder with the remaining
between 25 to 40 lbs.  We did not require
to stay out longer and if we did, no doubt
there would be many more added on.  We

Steve , with outstanding

This year's trip was no different than the
past, when it comes to the phenominal
expertise of the captain , the boat itself,
and the brand new, custom built, Calstar
Rods, and
Tiburon SST reels - IT JUST DOESN'T
GET ANY BETTER!!! Capt Steve  put us
on fish, even though the weather
conditions weren't favorable to catching
fish - we caught fish when so many others
came back empty handed.

We caught a number of Yellow Fin Tunas
(YFTs), and a handfull of bull and cow
dorado during our fishing adventure. One
of the YFTs was my wife's personal best of
about 65lbs.

We also had a shot at catching a very
large Black Marlin. It looked to be about
600lbs. Unfortunately, it missed the hook
and wrapped the leader around it's bill.
Guess you can figure out who won that
battle. Though we missed that big fish, I
still felt good because I know how few

My wife and I recently got the chance
to fish with Cesar Perez on August
21st at La Corbetana. The day started
earlier to expect a later in the day bite.
Sure enough, around noon we started
getting hit trolling live baits and around
12:30 hooked our first tuna. While i
was fighting the first fish we doubled
up and hooked another about ten
minutes in to my fight. We were able
to put four 100 plus pound tuna in the
boat, and got probably a dozen
strikes. Cesar even helped my 105lb
wife reel in a tuna in the 130-150lb
range. My wife usually doesn't enjoy
long days on the water but she has
never had more fun fishing than we
had that day. I have fished with alot of
different charters throughout Mexico,  
but i have never had a better
experience than i did with Cesar. He
and his deckhand were constantly
working like crazy to put us on the fish.
He even made fresh Ceviche for us to
eat on the boat, and prepared a ton of
frozen tuna for us to take home..

I decided that I would charter a boat in
order to go
fly fishing in Puerto Vallarta. I
emailed various charter outfits and the only
one with experience was PV Sportfishing. I
wanted an experienced skipper and
needed to use his equipment. I spent 4
hours with Caesar fishing about 100 yards
behind the surf line. The boat was a 29 ft.
super panga, which was extremely
comfortable. Caesar put me right on
several schools of toro or bull fish. I landed
about 4 or 5, all in the 10-15 lb. range. With
a 7 weight rod, this was a fabulous
experience. Next trip I'll try for a full day and
seek Marlin, billfish and/or tuna and will
charter a larger boat from
PV Sportfishing.

I spent a fine day aboard one of the super
pangas. We spent a hard day trying to get
me a sailfish--- the sailfish ignored us. But
on our way back in we trolled live baits
near some rock and immediately hooked a
25lb+ Jack. Then came three roosterfish
between 20 and 30 pounds.
A miscommunication regarding another trip
was handled Very professionally.
I will be fishing with them again next year.
PV Sportfishing practices and encourages
catch and release but if you want to take your
catch home we understand.  After the catch,
PV Sportfishing Will skin and cut your catch
we also offer a freezer service if you would
can also make a great game fish trophy and
have it shipped back to your home.  For more

As far as I'm concerned, Captain Cesar
Perez is the only one to book your Puerto
Vallarta fishing trip with.  PV Sportfishing
goes out of their way to make your trip one
that you will remember for a long time.  I
have NEVER been on a trip with Cesar
without catching fish.  Last time we caught
2- 50 pound tunas and a mahi mahi.  I look
forward to my next trip!!!

We caught 5 Mahi Mahi while we fishing in
the rain with Capt Hector. When you fish
for Mahi Mahi you only troll so be
prepared to sit and wait. Once you hook
one, they are a great fight and fun. We
also saw about 15 different whales and
literally thousands of dolphins. The Capt
stopped to let us watch the family of
whales literally 30 -40 feet off the side of
the boat. Just amazing...

Just wanted to say a huge thanks to
Cesar and the crew for an amazing day
out on the Pacific (05/16/14).
After 8 hours we had only caught some
tuna and a huge Marlin broke the line!!
We had almost given up catching
anything else when, thanks to Cesar's
quick reactions we caught two large
I was delighted as I have always wanted
to catch a sailfish. The whole day the
crew were great and my wife, who doesn't
fish, really enjoyed seeing the dolphins
and turtles out at sea. The weather was
perfect and the sea was calm.
A perfect day.

I booked a three-day charter  with PV
Sportfishing to take our 16 year old
grandson on a fishing trip for his
birthday. They met all of my expectations
and more. We had three exciting and fun
albeit long days (14 hours each). But,
they were productive. The skipper Luis
and deckhands Alfredo and Carlos (not
regulars on this boat) were excellent.
They worked their butts off to get the
catch of a lifetime for our grandson and
he did. Over the three days he caught
(and released) five Sailfish, Dorados,
Yellowfin Tuna, Skipjack, and Rainbows.
Weather was hot as expected but
spectacular. Highly recommend this
charter company and the crew.

My brother and I booked a morning
through PV Sportfishing and had the time
of our lives! Got into the tuna that
morning, Yellowtails and Bonitas. Captain
Caesar and his crew of one were great.
After a quick trip to Mismaloya to net
some sardines we were out past Los
Arcos and into the fish. The area was
packed with charters but we all caught
fish. There really was not a slow time in
the 4 hours we were out. My brother's
hope was to catch some tuna and eat
them the same day. We did and had
fresh sashimi and seared tuna steaks.
What a nice addition to our trip to Mexico.
I highly recommend them and will
definitely book again. Thanks Damon for
your great customer service in getting us
lined up and hats off to Caesar and crew
for the tight lines all morning!

I booked a four hour in bay trip.
Everything went as planned. Captain
Hector arrived on time at the dock. I was
the only angler booked that day so I had
the boat to myself which was nice. Hector
and the crew where very accomadating,
attentive and polite. They did all the work,
and I did all the fish fighting. NICE! We
immediatley hooked into some Bonitas,
we landed five all together and several
Skip's. Between the dolphins, sea turtles,
birds and landscape, the scenery was
amazing. Thanks for an unforgetable trip,
I will definatley be booking with you again

2 sailfish 1dorado and the black marlin
were all caught on day 3 of my trips.
Started trolling from punta Mita and got the
first sailfish at 0830 .
Continued out to la cobentera rock  and
caught several bonito in the 2- 3 lb class
that we slow trolled, first bait was a eaten
by a sail fish of about 75 lb. that was
brought to the boat in about 10 mins. We
then re set the baits and within 5 mins the
large bonito was engulfed by my large
black marlin . This was hooked on the 50 lb
class stand up rod and tiburon 50 lb reel . I
had brought along by braid brute buster
harness and belt so elected to fight the
marlin stand up, 1 and a half hours later
with aching arms and back I was regretting
that decision the marlin fought like a
Damon with no jumps just long solid runs.
1 hour and 40 mins the fish was boated. I
normally fish catch and release but the
crew had other plans.
By this time it was time to head back to
port, but we put out some lures for the
chance of a dorado, and that's exactly what
i got a nice 25 dorado. With aching arms
and back a very happy British angler
enjoyed the ride back to puerto vallarta.
We have just arrived home after a 12 hour
flight, will be submitting a claim to the igfa
for a pacific slam certificate.
Thanks for your help damon.
Best regards

I have been out on many many charters all
over North America for all kinds of fish,
and lets first take catching fish out of the
equation, service, hard work and friendly
fun atmosphere is what you will find on
spotlessly clean boats is what you can
expect. Fish, (I never will blame a charter
for poor fishing, if you fished enough I
needn't explain) With that said, after 8
trips over 2 years With PV Sportfishing
and We have caught fish! Sailfish, wahoo,
Dorado (one that was 63 inches) Marlin,
(one was 600 lbs, mine :), these guys
NEVER stop working to put you on the fish
and bend that rod. This is now an annual
trip for me.

First of all let say that you can not beat
Damon's customer service. We missed
our flight and our trip was scheduled for
the following day. Damon was quick to
respond via email and a phone call. He
arranged another trip for us. Our captain
Cesar and his deck hand did a great job.
We hooked and landed 2 sail fish 1
Bonito and a Mahi Mahi we hooked a
Marlin but he got away. We had fresh
ceviche made on the boat and of course
don't forget cold beer all this was
requested from us for an extra fee but all
worth it. If you want the best go with PV
Sportfishing! Damon & Cesar are the
ones to go with!
