FEW BOATS FISHING BUT ACTION STEADY
Oct. 30, 2004, Kim Moore, Charter Dreams, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Fishing Report:
As the end of summer approaches, we are all ready for a break in the heat and humidity in Puerto Vallarta. The fishing has continued to be pretty good. We are catching numerous dorado and sailfish around El Moro. There were reports of small tuna at Yelapa early in the week. One big yellow fin tuna (300+ lber) reported caught at El Banco. Puerto Vallarta tourist traffic is fairly light so not many boats going out so reports are slow.
Monday we were surprised by the tropical storm that popped up off shore and battled out 10-14 ft. waves to catch a small dorado. The rest of the week Puerto Vallarta has been enjoying sunny days with temps in mid-90s, light breezes and calm seas. Water temp is 86 degrees F. Catch of the week was Oct. 28th, 2004 with Abe “Skip” Lackman of Martha’s Vineyard and Craig Browne of Boston, who hooked three nice sailfish aboard the “Anticipation” with Captain Ed Moore of El Moro. Two were released but the third died on the way in.
