Captain Steve torres  wins 1st place Marlin at the
7th international Marlin and Tuna tournament in
Puerto Vallarta Mexico August 10 2013
Captain Steve Torres

We had a great time this last weekend even though no
one caught any Tuna or Dorado I think every boat
caught a Marlin at El Banco. Day 1 We departed from
paradise village at 7am and reached the bank a little
after 9am. The team caught live bait and We started
trolling the fishing was very slow for us all day just a small
Sailfish nibble in the morning but then a little after 3pm
We had our first Marlin strike then another and just like
that We had a double hook up.  But since it was already
after 3 pm and We needed to be back at the dock by 6
pm We did not have time to tangle with both so Freddy
let his go and the crew started Reeling the big Blue 1
hour 10 minutes later the blue Marlin was on the boat
and We were racing back  hoping to make the 50 + mile
ride back before 6pm Well captain Steve did it again and
We were back at the dock with 3 minutes to spare. The
Marlin weighed in at 576 lbs taking 1st place at this years
Annual Marlin and Tuna Tournament.

Captain Luis Torres
I went on a 10 hour charter last week  We started
hooking into fish around noon time and put some meat in
the cooler. I caught 2 yellowfin tuna, and my girlfriend
caught two as well. Another two hours later is the climax
of the story. At approximately 2:00PM, the line on a reel
started flying off the spool. Way out in the distance I saw
a fish hooked and jumping across the ocean. Another
tough 15 minutes later, I had landed a 56 inch (4ft 8inch)
Bull Mahi Mahi. I was overwhelmed with excitement while
the fish was flailing in the back of the boat. My girlfriend
Nicole got nervous because of its size and didn't want to
get hit with the tail, so snapped numerous photos from
the Capt's chair above deck

My son and I took an overnight from Nuevo Vallarta  
March 1st to the 2nd with Captain Steve, Freddy, and
Alex aboard. We left at 2 am and went to sleep in the
comfortable forward sleeping quarters. I awoke during
the early am hours as nature called and noted that we
were pulling a Panga behind us. I thought that we had
stopped to help a disabled Panga and went back to
sleep. We were awakened by Captain Steve yelling get
your a.... up were hooked up on a nice tuna. We rushed
out and no sooner than we were on deck another hook
up occurred. Now my son (33y/o) and I were both hooked
up on the biggest tuna of our lives and virtually giddy and
unable to stop smiling.

We were out 70 miles or so and it was the fishing trip of
our lives. Totals were 21 tuna and 4 dorado. Steve is a
kite master and to see a tuna hit a Caballito is like a
bomb exploding on the surface of the sea.
SPECTACULAR!!!!! After it was all said and done we had
two around 180 lbs and 12 in the 100 lb range, with the
smallest about 45 lb. One dodo was around 35 lb and the
rest smaller. The crew was first class and Steve
confirmed why he has won so many tournaments. This
guy is part fish! The crew was magnificent as well. We
lost only one of every 5 hook ups which is pretty good for
this size tuna. We hooked several ourselves which is

Captain Cesar Perez

My wife and i recently got the chance to fish with Cesar
Perez on August 21st at La Corbetana. The day started
out a little slow, but Cesar had told us earlier to expect a
later in the day bite. Sure enough, around noon we
started getting hit trolling live baits and around 12:30
hooked our first tuna. While i was fighting the first fish we
doubled up and hooked another about ten minutes in to
my fight. We were able to put four 100 plus pound tuna in
the boat, and got probably a dozen strikes. Cesar even
helped my 105lb wife reel in a tuna in the 130-150lb
range. My wife usually doesn't enjoy long days on the
water but she has never had more fun than
fishing in
Puerto Vallarta. I have fished with alot of different
charters throughout Mexico, but i have never had a
better experience than i did with Cesar. He and his
deckhandwere constantly working like crazy to put us on
the fish.He even made fresh Ceviche for us to eat on the
boat,and prepared a ton of frozen tuna for us to take
home. I couldn't have asked for more especially for the
price.Cesar is a fun guy to fish with, and i will be back next
year for sure. Thanks Cesar, see you soon amigo!

Well I met Capt'n Steve aat the marina and
he said are you the only one coming and I said yes and
he said are you sure you can reel all these fish in and I
laughed and said ya right I can handle anything you can
hook me up with so we went to the banks and hooked
and lost a sail fish and lost a dorado. It was slow and
know one out there seemed to be having much luck so
Capt'n Steve then decided to head to Corbetina and on
the way there we caught a nice Dorado but the excitement
of the day was hooking up with a huge marlin took out
more line than I thought possible then stopped jumped
flipped and tail cut the line. I was in shock we had him the
whole time he made his run and then in a split second he
was gone. I have never in my life seen a reel spool out
that much line that fast Freddie was pouring water on it
as fast as he could trying to keep up with the heat OMG
what a thrill it was. It was one of the most absolutely
amazing things I had ever seen or experienced. We then
went on our way to corbetena and put the kites out and
ended up landing six tuna. I was fishing by myself so after
catching six of these hogs Capt'n Steve said we had just
time enough for one more run and I told him I was spent I
couldn't land one more fish I was absolutely exhausted
and absolutely overwhelmed with my experience with
these to professional fisherman. I wouldnt think of fishing
with anyone other than these guys.

427 lb Yellowfin tuna report by Fox News
n saltwater fishing's version of baseball's infamous pine
tar incident, an angler who reeled in a world-record
yellowfin tuna had his home-run catch called back --
because a deckhand touched his fishing pole as he
fought the mighty fish.

Robert Pedigo hooked the 427.9-pound fish last
Thursday and fought it for a half-hour before bringing it
aboard the "Journeyman." But everyone on board
agreed that Danny Osuna, a local captain working that
day as a deckhand, blew the record by touching Pedigo's
pole during the battle between man and beast off the
coast of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The rules say an angler
can't have any help pulling in a fish if he or she wants to
make history.

"I do this for a living and we're really hardcore
fishermen," Osuna told FoxNews.com. "We have caught
a lot of fish in the high 300s, but this is the first time
we've caught something like this."

Osuna admitted touching Pedigo's fishing rod,
disqualifying the catch from consideration by the
International Game Fish Association. But he said Pedigo,
who could not be reached for comment, isn't too broken
up about the technicality.

"We're fine with that," Osuna said. "Actually, we never
even thought the fish would be that big."

Fished again this year with Captain Steve Torres

BLUF: Feeling like the second luckiest guy in Vallarta -
caught a couple cows last year and this year it was a
622lb Blue Marlin with Steve and Freddy's help.Met Capt
Steve, Freddy, and our new amigo Joel at the light house
at 0600. Then it was off to the rock.Made it to Corbetena  
about 0800ish to find poor weather, more
logs and stumps in the water than you can shake a stick
at (ha ha), and off-colored water.......BUT, there was lots
of bait working and tuna (50-100lbers) jumping all over
the place.
Unfortunately, we just couldn't get them to bite. We threw
everything at them, (including the neighbor's kitchen
sink!) but just
couldn't get them to bite.

Fortunately, the weather and water color improved for the
fternoon and we finally stuck a sail about 3 pm.

Captain Steve Torres
For years I've had the dream of catching a 200+lb Cow,
but never dreamed that I would catch a 200+ lber and a
300+ lber in the same trip!  My wife, son Eric, and I fished
with Captain Steve Torres
Day 1 Met Capt and crew at the lighthouse at 0600, did
the meet and greet thing, got food, fuel, bait and on our
way. Hit the rock, made bait rather quickly and lines in
the water just as fast as the bait was coming in.
About 0920, and raining like heck, the first bite was on.
Our son Eric was in the driver's seat and it was "game
on" for the next hour on a 200+ pound Blue. After that,
things went cold for a couple hours when the next bite
was on. The battle didn't last long, because the hook
either pulled, or the fish spit it out. I just know that it had
some real shoulders on it. A bit later we bagged a 75 lb
yellow fin and things went quite again....Capt Steve said,
the bit will turn back on about 1 p.m., so we just cooled
our heels and trolled around to see what we could pick
up. Like clock work, at 1:04 the next bite was on.....then
off.....a bit later....another.....and then off.....then
another......Dang it.

The Sailfish have moved in even closer inside banderas
bay just a little north of Bucerias this is a great time of the
year especially for first time anglers who have never
caught a billfish a Sailfish is a great start and puts on
quite a show. the bay is also producing lots of smaller
grouper 5-8 lbs great to eat.  Yellowfin tuna are still
boiling around El Banco getting a little bit bigger from last
week average size this week is 120-200 lbs . we also
released a nice 300 lb Blue marlin right outside of
Corbetena so its a good sign the rock is started to show
some life. the Yellowfin tuna are biting live bait drifting,
the blue Marlin bit a black and purple lure  and the
Sailfish have been biting live goggle eye's casting and

at last weeks 19th annual Marlin tournament held in
Topolobampo Sinaloa Mexico, catching the largest Marlin
since 1997 6 lbs short of the tournament record 415 lbs!
The blue beast was caught with the first 50 wt Tiburon
Reels on the Market custom made for Captain Steve, with
130 lb IGFA Spectra and a 100 yards of top shot 100 lb
Mono Philament Diamond Momoi. She bit a live Skip Jack
trolling a little before 1 pm. We fished 2 days before the
tournament learning the fishing grounds. The first
morning Captain Steve found a nice structure at the
bottom of the ocean perfect for big Marlin fishing 4 miles
west of the farallon rock so We decided to fish that area
with live bait the whole tournament. The first day of the
tournament We released 3 striped  Marlins and lost a
blue the 2nd day the water temps were a little higher 80.1
and We struck gold I mean Blue!!

Captain Steve Torres does it again catching a huge
Black Marlin in March!  Every Angler in Puerto Vallarta is
asking themselfes have the big Puerto Vallarta fish
arrived early?  It would not be a surprise with late tuna
bite still boiling at El Banco and a now this huge black
Marlin caught at el Morro that this is definitely going to be
a interesting  Puerto Vallarta sportfishing season.
The guys heading out a little after 7 am for a short 6 hr
day we went in between the rocks at Islas marrietas and
El Morro fishing for Jack Crevalle and Roosterfish,
when captain Steve Spotted a big fin popping out of the
water he trolled to the direction where he had saw the fin
going  and boom around 9:30 am  We had a big hook
up! which ending up being  almost a 6 hour fight with a
638 lb Black Marlin! The Marlin bit a live bait bullet
tuna on a Tiburon 30 Reel and Calstar 58 graphite Rod
at El Morro.  If that is not a test for  fishing gear I don't
know what is? After the hook up first on the reel was
client Gennelly Wall She put up a good fight for about an
hour then passed the rod along to Tomas Pisker. " the
Marlin was jumping and diving I was tired out" Tomas put
up great fight for 2 hours then it was up to the crew 2
hours later the marlin took its final leap and was tangled
in the line so we had to pull him in total time 5 1/2 hours
on a  Tiburon 30  reel aboard theCabo Yacht

though it is late season Captain Steve found a great boil
of Yellowfins but way offshore about 20 miles past the El
Banco so it is about a 70 mile run from the Marina
Vallarta.  We left the docks last Tuesday a little before 4
am hit the fishing grounds about 7 am, and right as we
approached the Island we saw a nice flock of birds and
smaller tuna’s “jumping just like
the other day” Captain Steve “said smaller tunas jumping
early and the big bite in the afternoon after 2pm” We had
a first hook up after about 15 minutes drifting and casting
live bait, nice little footballs about 30-40 lbs great Sashimi
to start off the day, after we boated the first tuna we
caught up with the School and as soon as we starting
drifting again, there was another bite then another then 1
more all about the same l.size 30 -50 lbs that got
everyone’s blood going we kept catching one after
another with 1 more triple hook up, then at about 2 pm
we decided to get a little further away from the Island and
try for the bigger tuna’s we drove about a mile Captain
Steve spotted some birds and we were back on top of
them. Then we all saw a big splash in the water behind
us much bigger then we had seen all day and 5 minutes
after that we were hooked up again this Yellowfin had a
little more size about 120 lbs to
top the day, total count eleven Yellowfin tuna’s-30-60 lb
