November is the highly anticipated month for fishing anglers in Puerto Vallarta and international anglers coming to enjoy the peak fishing season.  This month promises a continuation of the thrilling game fish action we enjoyed in October, with the likes of Marlin, sailfish, tuna, and mahi-mahi making their appearances.

We're also excited to announce a couple of exciting fishing tournaments this month. First up is the Los Muertos tournament on November 3 rd and 4th, one of the year's biggest events. Typically, around 200 boats participate, primarily focusing on mahi-mahi and sailfish. This tournament attracts local and international anglers alike, offering impressive prizes totaling 450,000 pesos.  Last year we got second place and the previous year caught the largest fish of the tournament. The cost to enter this year's fishing tournament is 6000 pesos plus the cost of the boat.

Following that, we have the international tournament on November 8th. Registration begins, leading to three intense days of fishing, targeting Marlin, sailfish, tuna, and mahi-mahi. This is for the anglers who love to fish and love Puerto Vallarta fishing.  The cost of the international fishng tournament is 50000 pesos for 3 days of fishing. We are looking for marlin and huge tuna.

One of the standout features of November is the ideal fishing conditions it brings. The deep, cold, and crystal-clear blue waters, combined with perfect temperatures and abundant bait fish, create a paradise for anglers seeking impressive catches to adorn their walls. It's a fantastic month for various pelagic species, offering a diverse range of fishing experiences. The water temperatures range from 78 to 88 deg. All month long. These condistions bring in all kinds of pelagic fish.

For those looking for action closer to the bay, we have you covered as well. You can expect encounters with Spanish mackerel, yellowtail, mahi-mahi, and even some snapper for a fun day out. These are our 4 to 6 hr trips.  The 6 hr is the most requested bay trio we offer.

In addition to standard fishing trips, we offer specialty experiences during the winter months. One of our unique offerings is a half-day fishing excursion combined with half a day of whale watching. You can find videos of these memorable trips on our YouTube channel, which have gained popularity due to our incredible catches and stunning whale-watching moments. Another popular option is the half-day fishing trip paired with beach activities such as snorkeling and beachfront dining. These trips are in high demand and among our most requested.

While whales usually make a grand entrance in November to December.  If you're interested in one of our specialty trips, don't hesitate to reach out via our toll-free numbers or email.
