Nov. 4, 2005, Daniel Quinonez, PV Marlin Sportfishing, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Fishing Report:

This week our charter boat Lorena fished 4 days out of Puerto Vallarta, 2 fishing days at Corbetena, and 1 day at El Banco and El Morro. In these 4 trips we landed 9 dorado, 1 marlin, 2 sailfish, and 2 tuna. We had nice fishing weather at Puerto Vallarta, with low seas and and 82-85 degree water temperature.

Puerto Vallarta anglers fishing with us this week on the Lorena included:

Loreal Lewis and husband fished an 8 hour trip on the Lorena, and we nailed 4 big dorado and 2 sailfish. Two bull dorado were both in the 60 pound range and the other two in the 20-30 pound range.

William Fallon on an 8 hour trip landed 2 nice dorado between 20-30 pounds and fought a marlin for over two hours.

William Fallon on a 12 hour trip released a black marlin in the 400 pound range and landed a nice big tuna about 180 pounds at El Banco on a skipjack.

Jason Grey scored another 3 dorado while fishing at Corbetena, one that was 66 inches, a tuna in the 80 pound range on a live goggle eye, and a giant tuna came off short of an hour on a skipjack.

The dorado are caught at Corbetena, between El Moro and Corbetena, as well as the ride between Punta de Mita and El Banco.
