Puerto Vallarta, Mexico



Oct. 12, 2005, Danny Osuna, Marla's Sportfishing, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Fishing Report:

Jorge Prieto and Fernando Preito from Guadalajara, Mexico, caught twin 200 pound class yellowfin tunas aboard the Marla 2 on Oct. 12, 2005, while fishing at Roca Corbeteña in Puerto Vallarta waters. The fishing water condition was nice and flat, with a little northwest wind, with water temperature 85 to 86. The Prieto brothers had a great time fishing for big tunas their first time. We had three other strikes but we missed them. We caught 6 skipjacks first thing in the morning. In no longer than four hours, we were out of bait with twin 200 pound fish on board. The tunas are hungry and need more skippies.

On Oct. 12, 2005, Todd Fraser and Todd Fraser caught two twin 260 pound tunas and a 220 pounder while fishing aboard Marla's Sportfishing's charter boat Arca de Noe with Capt. Scott Osuna, at Roca Corbeteña. The fish are biting every bait we slow troll. We didn't have time to break for lunch. The fish were more hungry than us. We also lost another two fish at leader.

On Oct. 11, 2005, with Alvino Osuna as deckhand, Todd Fraser of Santa Cruz, Calif., caught a 190 pound tuna on the Marla 2 fishing at El Banco off Puerto Vallarta in water temperature 86 to 87. We fished the banks in the morning, but we missed the early bait catch, so we had to fish with small caballitos. Doing the kite fishing, we caught 3 nice fish in less than 2 hours, but we heard that the big tunas were really good at Roca Corbeteña. We were only 17 miles away so we took the run down to the roca, 45 minutes later we get there. But we had a hard time to make skippies bait, finally we caught 2 and we troll them for 30 minutes and we had a big marlin come up just to kill both baits. After that we went home ready to come back the next day for the "PAY BACK."
