Puerto Vallarta is know for many things, one of the best is our famous fishing grounds in and around the bay of Flags.  Once a port for pirates and now is a major angling site for fishermen from all over the world. Come down and discover what Puerto Vallarta fishing has to offer for the month of April.


For the anglers that have been  here before in the month of April you already know the fishing is good during this month. Let take a look at what we will be fishing for during the start of spring break in Puerto Vallarta. The marlin will be around but mostly offshore.  The Blue marlin move into our fishing grounds around this time of the year.  We have more striped marlin than blue marlin.  The striped marlin like the cooler water so we always keep an eye on the water tempertures and where the larger baits are schooling.  There will be some mahi-mahi action mixed in the  marlin action and always fun to catch. The dorados as they are called here in Mexico are some of the best eating you can find in any part of this fishing world we live in.

Around the reefs and a few honey holes we have marked here on our GPS there will be the amberjack ,grouper,snapper,botton fish and the always schooling yellowtail. We love to jig, use cut bait, lures and the all time favorite live baiting on these fantastic fishing spot here close to Puerto Vallarta. There are few days that the fish will not bite here at these famous places we fish in April.  The only problem we encounter is when we have strong currects. In April the sea are usually flat with no weather issues. One of the frequent questions I get every day is "is it going to be rough out there ? "  April bring lots of sunshine, flat seas and good fishing.

The good thing about fishing Puerto Vallarta in April is you are not limited to one or two species of fish. We have many different kinds of fish and offshore/inshore fishing depending on how much time you want to spend here in our fishinf mecca. Let us know your budget, how many will be in your group and I'll garantee we will get you on the right boat with one of out top notch Captains and first mates. I've included our email info and my toll-free number to get the lastest fishing report and current condistions. 800 4306048.

Here is a list of some of out top fishing spots in Puerto Vallarta Mexico,

1. The entire bay of Puerto Vallarta has great fishing from the reefs, south side of the bay up to the north side of the bay around the La Cruz Area.  There are also incredible bay fishing north close to Punta Mita.

2. The islands offshore alonf with several reefs we fish almost every day, From trolling to top water casting these fishing spots offer excellent fishing in April.

3. El Morro, An offshore honey hole of a fishing spot that hold marlin,sailfish,mahi-mahi and some good bottom fishing

4. Cortbetena or the Rock as it called by most of the local Captains here in Puerto Vallarta offers some of the best fishing you can find in the ten hour range for offshore fishing. Marlin,tuna,huge snapper, dorados and sailfish just to mention a few of the peligac fish we catch in April at this fantastic fishing spot

5. El Banco know for it's huge tuna,marlin,dog tooth snapper, mahi-mahi and much more. this 12 to 14 trip takes you over 50 mile offshore and it know as one of the top fishing places in the world.
