This is the 2nd year we have gone fishing on the shared boat. Both times we went on the Piqus with Captain George and Juan deck hand. Both times we had a fabulous time. The boat is spotless and well appointed. George and Juan are very knowledgeable and had us on the fish both trips. We took our youngest daughter and her boyfriend with us this last time. We plan to go again come December 2012 and both our daughters and their boyfriend and husband plan to go with us. Highly recommend Puerto Vallarta Sportfishing to anyone who is looking to have fun and catch lots of big fish. Super easy booking the trips which was a big plus.

There were 6 (3 males & 3 females)in our party and that was perfect. Our crew consisted of John (older), John (younger) and William. They were all very personable and fun. We booked the 6 hour tour and that was just the right one for us. The guys were excellent spotters and we caught 2 25 lb fish. If I could post the pictures, I would. We had a great time - would recommend this tour to anyone. Our only regret is that EVERYONE didn't catch a fish (any size). The fact that we didn't see any whales was also VERY disappointing. That being said, the price was right, the crew were great, the boat had everything we needed and I'd definitley book with them again...no problem!

Went on two eight hour trips with ceaser and his mate in panga over the week prior to xmas. Went specifically for Rooster Fish. First trip went out for two hours and caught bait and then went after Roosters. Fishing was slow but captain and mate worked as hard as possible. Ended up cathching 2 -25# jacks and a 40+# rooster,all in all a good -slow day of fishing. Went out 3 days later and while catching bait cesear got a call from his dad that schools of rooster had been seen. Pulled in lines and took off for the fish. The next 3 hours were pretty cool,chased schools of rooster around cathching 12 greater than 40 #'s. Cesear obviously knows what hes doinng as we were always hooked up while others were still chasing fish. By the end of the day our arms were tired and ready to go in. I've fished all over mexico,and own my own boat and found cesear to be an excellent captain that knows the local fishing as well as any captain i've gone out with. If you are serious about you're fishing and have patience these guys are your best bet to catch fish.

Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay truly are a sportsman’s paradise with something for everyone. For me it’s the offshore pelagics (Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado, and Yellowfin Tuna) that keep me coming back. One of the best operations in town is Vallarta Sportsman, http://www.vallartasportsman.com/, with Luis Blanco as your captain. Captain Luis with his crew, Topo and Chavita are all hardcore offshore fishermen for those looking to head out for the trip of a lifetime. Vacationing in Puerto Vallarta this year with the family we wanted to have a relaxing day on the water and see the sights without being rushed and on a schedule like some of the tours you will find. Capt. Luis and crew took us out for a great day on the water aboard his 32 foot Luhrs the Snapper. What an awesome boat, whether you want hardcore offshore fishing or a nice day cruising the bay this boat has it all. From a smooth stable ride to shade to get out of the sun and full cabin/bathroom it has everything you need. We took an enjoyable trip from Marina Vallarta to Yelapa seeing Manta Rays and dolphins along the way. There is no schedule, no set tour, you have the boat for the day and do what you want when you want. Capt. Luis has snorkeling gear along with fishing gear in case you decide you want to see the fish in the water instead. We hit Marlin’s in Yelapa for a couple Margaritas’ along with a great lunch. After lunch and a little sightseeing in Yelapa we decided to run out a short ways to see if the Tuna were around and they were. Capt Luis and crew had us on the Yellowfins in now time, we caught fish until we said we had enough. Yellow Fins on light line (20-40 lbers) will give you all you can handle and they’re great eating too! We can’t say enough about how much fun we had and would recommend Vallarta Sportsman to anyone for their next adventure, whether offshore chasing Big Marlins and Tuna or a relaxing bay tour give Luis a call.

"Fishing With Carolina" is a great fishing outing from the Marina. Candace Carolina Shaw is an expat from Canada who arranges trips on her boat. I went out for 4 hours with my 2 teenage sons and we had a great time and caught a cooler full of fish. Skipper and assistant were great, and Candace was a wealth of information about local attractions. She arranged for our catch to be cooked at Victor's Cafe Tacuba - another great place.
