|Puerto Vallarta fishing report, by PV Sportfishing.
|Angler report Larry Haynes. September
For years I've had the dream of catching a 200+lb Cow, but never dreamed that I would catch a 200+ lber and a
300+ lber in the same trip!
My wife, son Eric, and I fished with Capt Torres 17 & 18 Sept....AWESOME TEAM (like I need to tell anyone).
Original plans were to fish 18 and 21 Sept, and try and squeeze a trip in with Capt Manny (didn't happen, but
there's a next time!), but with all the computer models saying that that Tropical Storm Karl was going to pass
over the PV area on that day, I decided to ask them to switch dates from the 21st to the 17th...just to be certain
to get the fishing in.
Met Capt and crew at the lighthouse at 0600, did the meet and greet thing, got food, fuel, bait and on our way.
Hit the rock, made bait rather quickly and lines in the water just as fast as the bait was coming in.
About 0920, and raining like heck, the first bite was on. Our son Eric was in the driver's seat and it was "game
on" for the next hour on a 200+ pound Blue. After that, things went cold for a couple hours when the next bite
was on. The battle didn't last long, because the hook either pulled, or the fish spit it out. I just know that it had
some real shoulders on it. A bit later we bagged a 75 lb yellow fin and things went quite again....Capt Steve
said, the bit will turn back on about 1 p.m., so we just cooled our heels and trolled around to see what we could
pick up. Like clock work, at 1:04 the next bite was on.....then off.....a bit later....another.....and then off.....then
another......Dang it. We then plowed the water for a few hours when the next bit was on. While fighting this fish,
a school of big tuna were jumping all around the boat - it was crazy cool seeing 50-100lbers jumping all around
me, while fighting the first dream fish. 1 hour later, a 200+ lb cow lay on the deck and I was about 10lbs lighter
Same as day 1....greatings, bait, fuel and back to the rock. Wife was up first this day....0900-ish she lock's up
with a nice bull doroado. After a decent fight, she bagged the bull and was ready for more. After a lul in the
action....Our son reeled in a really nice Wahoo. A little while later, Capt Steve tells Freddy, who just caught a big
skippy, to put it on the down-rigger at about 100 ft. Approximately 30 minutes after setting the bait at 100 ft, the
big one hit - I've never seen a fish take so much line, so fast. The reel was at the Spectra in a flash. The fight
was on....and on.....and on....1 1/2 hours later, the 300 lber was brought on the boat and I was exhausted.
Day one....200+ lb Blue, 75lb yellow fin, and a 200+ lb Cow
Day two....Bull Dorado, a nice wahoo, and a 300+ lb Cow
Enjoy the pics!
