We were unable to book a fishing trip due to time but Omar Santoyo helped me in booking an excursion for my group of 12 to go on the zip lines. He was very helpful and made sure everything was taken care of for us.

I will be in Puerto Vallarta from January 8th to 15th and was thinking about fishing. I would really like to catch a marlin but I think they are out of season as are the large tuna. (correct me if I am wrong) Sailfish would be the next choice along with dorado. I would likely be the only one fishing but my brother would be along for the ride and I might talk the wife into coming as well. I don't think I would like a super panga and would like a boat larger than 30' that is fairly fast and equipped with first class equipment as well as first class captain and first mate. I think the trip should be about 8 hours. What would you suggest and would January 11th be a good day?
