BIG FISH REPORTS DEFENDED
Aug. 14, 2005, Kurt Hjort, Esperanza Sportfishing, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Fishing Report:
Fishing here in Puerto Vallarta is just as it should be in the summer, with calm waters, big fish, and lots of tired clients. Tuna and marlin are being found at Corbeteña and the banks, and sails and small dorado can be encountered just about anywhere as the blue water moved into the bay and created quite a color break where it butts up to the dirtier water from the river runoff.
Puerto Vallarta fishing water temperatures are still around 80-84 degrees and my Suunto dive computer proves that at least down to 80 feet the temperature doesn't change much.
Small roosterfish are around but I haven't seen any of considerable size last week. I consider 40 pounds and bigger to be large fish, but we all have different opinions on large.
I won't comment on fish sizes here anymore, but the believers are welcome and encouraged to come and give it a go. Those that don't can stay and catch the 60 pound albies and mumble stuff about us liars in Puerto Vallarta. We KNOW what we have here and just want to share it with other people. No matter where, how, when you fish, take a kid with you and everyone wins!
