We just returned from our annual trip to Puerto Vallarta, and fished with Capt Steve with outstanding results.
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 boats can raise a fish like that and I know that we were the only
boat that raised a Marlin of that caliber in some time. We will get him next time!
Our fishing experience with Capt Steve has been so outstanding, that we are already looking at next year's dates.

My friend and I went out sept 29, 2012 and had a blast. We caught multiple sailfish, tuna, and mahi. The crew was
awesome and very helpful. I would recommend going with these guys any day! Hope to be back next year

We chartered a 2005 Cabo Yacht on September 11th 2012 with Puerto Vallarta Sports Fishing (puertovallartafish.com)
and our fishing trip with the "Animal House" was a huge success! We chartered for 12 hours, and all that they stated to us
ahead of time, was all true. Everything was included as fishing license, bait, ice, cold water, clean and awesome yacht, and
the best crew we ever could have asked for. We've fished before, but nothing like this. We caught a total of 7 very large (all
over 100 lbs) Yellow Fin Tuna. This all happened within an hour and half (around 2pm) during our 12 hour charter.
We totally recommend this crew and yacht for anyone who would be interested in deep sea sports fishing in the Pacific. I
don't think i could say enough about them. We hit the jackpot that day, and the crew was just as excited and anxcious as
we were when we seen the school of yellow fins jumping out of the water along with the dolphins. It was a site to see, and
we got right down to business and didn't stop until there were no more. The crew was professional, and very
knowledgeable about it all. Great equipment also on the yacht which i'm sure assisted in bringing in that many huge
"fighting fish." We were looking for a fight, and we got it. Again, a HUGE success with such an awesome Crew!!!
