As in other coastal resorts along the Mexican Riviera, fishing in Vallarta ranks among the best in the world for deep sea fishing and small game fishing. November through May is the best season for fishing in Puerto Vallarta, due to the abundance of sailfish. Smaller fish are plentiful year round. These include Red Snapper, Rooster Fish, Bass, Sea Bass, Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, Tuna, Bonito and others. There are many boats available for fishing in Puerto Vallarta, most offering catch-and-release sports fishing trips.
Catch-and-release fishing is gaining in popularity as more anglers are becoming concerned about protecting and increasing the sport fish populations around the world. Practicing good catch-and-release techniques provides a first-class fishing experience, while recognizing our responsibility to conserve our valuable fishing resource for future generations. When properly handled and released, saltwater fish have an excellent chance of survival.
Each year in November, a deep sea fishing tournament
is held in Puerto Vallarta
. Don't miss out on a unique opportunity because fishing in Vallarta
is a lifetime experience.
