Puerto Vallarta fishing report February



People love fishing in Puerto Vallarta in February month. February is the month here lovers and for people that love to fish Vallarta.  With the simple fact, we have hundreds of miles of coastline and five of the top places in the world to fish you can obviously see why Anglers want to be in Puerto Vallarta for the month of February. 

Just a few of the reasons is we have excellent weather with the water temperature hanging around the mid-70s the ambient water temperature in the mid-70s as well. This is perfect for beachgoers and the folks that love to fish in perfect weather.  This produces all kinds of good fishing inside the bay and offshore so let's explore fishing options we have for February.

If you're going to be fishing short amount of time here in Puerto Vallarta in February the bay fishing is fantastic. Over the last couple of weeks, we have been catching California Bonita, yellowtail, Mahi Mahi , some sailfish,h and even some striped Marlin inside the bay. Some of the best action has been over on the North Shore is known to produce a lot of fish and it's called Palo Verde . This is a good spot almost every day in the winter fishing. There are a few shallow spots there for bottom fishing and excellent for trolling. Often we were able to catch the fish schooling on the surface and having incredible action. On most days trolling along with some Pitch, baits have been sufficient to catch limits the four to six fishing trips. It's also a great opportunity to use some pitch baits and topwater action along this shoreline on the north side of the bay. . The month of February here in Puerto Vallarta is just about perfect for  Fishing the shorter trips in the bay. 

If you're wanting to come down and go for sailfish and Marlin I recommend 8 hours plus trips for offshore fishing. What can you expect in fishing these waters during the month of February ?? First striped Marlin,  blue and black marlin, dorados, wahoo and some tuna . There are some places that we use called the Corbetens and  El Banco these are 10 and 12 hour trips.  These fishing trips offshore are for going for the Big Tuna, the big marlin, and other pelagic fish. Anglers always ask me what its likes to catch one of these hugs fish.  Well, just imagine holding on to the back bumper of your car for four hrs and not letting go. You will experience this feeling on out fishing trips. We also have some incredible bottom fishing on our  8 Hour trips like the El Morro and some of the reefs out by Punta Mita one of my favorite places to bottom fish is called the Corbetena changing and produces another huge red snapper we catch this time of the year we're still seeing extraordinary warm waters for this time of the month. The water temperature is hovering around 80 degrees in most places. Where you see these big temperature jumps from 70 to 80 this is where you'll see the thermoclines and tuna. We have been seeing excellent action for the pelagic fish. 

The one advantage that we have over a lot of these other companies as we fish every day so we have multiple Captains with crews on the water at all the different fishing spots.  We also use Terrafin it gives us an exact idea of where the blue water fishing places are, water temps, water clarity and the thermocline breaks.

If you're looking for a fantastic place to fish in this winter Puerto Vallarta has a lot to offer incredible hotels five-star restaurants, excellent nightlife, beautiful beaches some of the world's best fishing, and the friendliest in people in the world. Hoping to see everyone out there on the water please give us a call if there's any way that we can help you plan your trip are in beautiful Puerto Vallarta. We have a toll-free number for people that might have questions before they come down or help them book their perfect vacation.
