The Puerto Vallarta fishing report here for January starts off with fireworks that we have for New Year. We had an incredible year for 2019 and so 2020 started off with even better fishing numbers and beautiful weather. The fishing is as good as the weather which is around 80 degrees. Fishing forecast is great to incredible.


For the folks that are coming down to the Puerto Vallarta will enjoy perfect weather, great fishing and seeing the humpback whales along with some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world.  January is one of the best months to be here for  all kind of activities to do. The bay action started just like the month of December with some fabulous fishing action. All kinds of pelagic fish here in the bay to catch on the shorter fishing trips. Some of our favorite are the rooster fish, mahi -mahi also known as Dorado, the great tasting Spanish mackerel along with hard fighting roosterfish. This time of the year to see some sailfish and the occasional marlin right here inside the bay.


Looking for fishing offshore here in Puerto Vallarta.  Offshore fishing here in Puerto Vallarta for January 2020 producing some really fast action with striped Marlin, sailfish, dorados and even a few of the big black and blue marlin. If you're looking to fish for the marlin, sailfish 8 hours fishing charter  is recommended although we do catch him on some of the shorter trips.


For the big game hunters that are better coming down looking for the big fish then plan on spending 8 hours plus where we've been catching fantastic marlin, tuna, sailfish with some really big dorados The water temperatures are still holding around 80 degrees in this means hot action with the warm water. We've been looking satellite pictures that we received each day and this gives us an idea on where the fish are biting and feeding.


I want to encourage everyone coming down here to Nuevo Vallarta Mexico they give us a call toll free 800 4306048 or shoot us a quick email  to find out what the latest conditions are. The conditions change every day here in Puerto Vallarta and that is why we offer a toll free number for people to call and get the latest update for fishing here.


So if great fishing, warm weather,shopping, incredible sunsets and some of the friendliest people in the world interest you please come down to the Puerto Vallarta fishing.


We have all kinds of boats from 28 foot bay boats all the way up to a hundred foot offshore multiple Day fishing boats.

Hope to see everyone out there on the water
