90-POUND TUNA SPEARED BY MARLA II SPORT DIVER
Jan. 14, 2006, Danny Osuna, Marla's Sportfishing, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Diving and Sportfishing Report:
Greg Walker from Tyler, Texas, caught a 65 pound wahoo, and caught and released five striped marlin, while fishing at Roca Corbeteña out of Puerto Vallarta on the Marla III with Capt. Scott Osuna. The water condition in the fishing area was two foot swell and 4-5 knot wind from the northwest, and a good water temp of 79 to 81 degrees. This week, the fishing has been great for striped marlin, dorado, wahoo, and some yellowfin tunas.
The Marla II released 5 striped marlin and lost 7 more, and had 45 stripers come up to the lures and baits.
The Arca de Noe, with Capt. Alonso Osuna released 8 stripers and caught 3 dorados and a lot of bonitas. All the other Puerto Vallarta charter boats like Prime Time, Top Gun, and Barrabas are also doing well.
