Western Outdoor NewsPublished: Oct 02, 2019

A May 21-24, 2020 trip to the tuna rich waters off the Tres Marias Islands is slated on a luxury sportfisher for 6 anglers

PUERTO VALLARTAWON is heading to the Tres Marias Islands north of Puerto Vallarta with a trip for six anglers, a high-end opportunity to go after cow and super cow tuna that features a two-night stay at a beachfront condo/penthouse on both sides of the trip.

HUGE TUNA ARE the targets for the El Pescador/WON group on the May 21-24 trip to Puerto Vallarta for six anglers.

The El Pescador trip is for 3½ days over May 21-24 and costs $2,500 per person and features the latest in comfort, electronics and techniques for catching huge tuna. How big? In February on a Seeker sponsored trip a monster yellowfin at 450 pounds was landed, and the same day a 368 and another super cow, a 325, was landed, and several 150 to 400 pounds were caught last season.

The El Pescador season is from late summer through June. The El Pescador is not an open load charter and caters to 4 to 6 fishermen. Many charters consist of two fishermen, almost assuring that lifetime record fish.

Fishermen can bring their gear or fish with the boat’s new Seeker rods developed for the El Pescador with Makaira reels. The stand-up posts make landing these cows enjoyable for any age. Fish are filleted, vacuum packed and frozen and ready to fly home. Fishermen are picked up at the airport and delivered back. The airport is five minutes from the Vallarta Marina. Lodging is available at the exclusive Shangri-la resort next to the marina.

The Shangri-la 5 star resort, spa, and pool on the beach are just across the street from the Vallarta Marina with restaurants and every type of entertainment. The WON group, hosted by former WON editor Pat McDonell, is in the 5-bedroom Penthouse at Shangrila, with 6,000 square feet on two floors with a dipping pool on the 15th floor.

Interested in going after tuna with just a small group, and staying at a penthouse, for 3½ days for $2,500 per person? Contact WON at or CLICK HERE to signup online.
