Hello fellow fishermen, anglers, Captains, and friends that read my fishing report each month. Let me tell you what’s happening in the fishing paradise that we call Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  In the summertime, there are few places in the world that can hold a candle to it when it comes to fishing for pelagic fish and wall hangers.Fishing in Puerto Vallarta in august

In August, when fishing in our bay you are in for a real treat. The bay and offshore waters are full of Mahi-Mahi, yellowtail, sailfish, marlin, and tuna. The fishing conditions are just right every summer here in Mexico.  This fishing haven we called the Bay of Flags, is our little slice of heaven every summer. The bait movement, water clarity, and water temperature all come in line and we all get to experience these incredible fishing conditions.

Here in the bay of Puerto Vallarta, you’ll find all kinds of fishing happening this summer. Some of the best Captains will be out and about, live baiting to catch all sorts of pelagic fish and some good-eating fish as well. If you’re fishing here in the summertime, you best be ready to try your hand at live baiting for the fish of your dreams or a good meal of mahi-mahi. Live baiting and pitch baits are the top ways to catch fish here in the bay and offshore. The troll is another top method for catching fish here in Mexico.

Puerto Vallarta is one of the largest bays in the world, it stretches along an 85-mile-long coastal strip leading into the  Pacific Ocean. That means some of the finest offshore fishing you can find anywhere, August is the time to be here for some truly fantastic fishing in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. If you are fishing for trophy fish or some of the best-tasting fish you can catch anywhere in the world. We have it all during the summer months. Tuna, mahi-mahi, snapper, and yellowtail just to mention a few.  If you’re after marlin, fear not! We got both big black marlin and blue marlin that will be waiting for all anglers coming in August. The water temperatures will be around  80 degrees and these are perfect for catching big trophy fish
