Fish in Vallarta Just add water...


I believe the solution to any problem - work, love, money, whatever - is to go fishing, and the worse the problem, the longer the trip should be.
John Gierach
Never leave fish to find fish.
I have fished through fishless days without regret.
Roderick Haig-Brown - Fish Library





Relatively common at 10-50 lbs, and can exceed 100 lbs. World record is 158 lbs.

Food Value

Excellent, but the flesh can be somewhat dry if fried or overcooked. A good smoking fish.

Fishing Method

Drifting; Trolling with artificial or natural bait.

Fighting Characteristics

One of the quickest fish in the ocean (recorded 96 km/h). This fish will test tackle to the utmost. Reel drags should be silky smooth due to the speed of the fish. Sometimes jumps but generally this species will make quick surface runs often followed by shorter runs in mid water.
