High Z’s Fishing Tour
If you are fishing in the Dominican Republic you want to fish with Captain Nelson of High Z’s Fishing Tour. With over 36 years of experience, he has many prestigious Billfish tournaments to his name. You will fish in the safe knowledge he will do everything in his power to get you your trophy fish! Book between May and July and he can practically guarantee you to catch a Marlin - the season is that plentiful over there for this great fish!
And if for some reason fishing awesome fish like Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Shark isn’t your cup of tea, why not try spearfishing them instead? Up to 10 people can get up close and personal, and try their hand at spearfishing. Just let the Captain know before the trip if you would like to try.
High Z’s Fishing Tours have something for everyone. If you don’t want to fish big game, they are happy to bottom fish for Snapper, Yellowtail, and Grouper. Puerto Plata is a great fishing spot for bottom fishing, and you will not leave empty handed! Let Capt. Nelson know what you are interested in hooking and he will make your fishing dreams come true!
Captain Nelson loves to see you happy, and if you are feeling hungry on the longer trips, he knows exactly what to do! One of his passions in life is fishing, so as a special service he will cook the fish you have caught on board, for no extra fee! The journey from sea to plate has never been smaller or more delicious!
They use the best of Penn and Shimano rods and reels, and will also provide fruits and snacks on all trips. You can even expect a sandwich on the longer trips. The only thing not included is the tip for the First Mate. You will also need to bring sunscreen and polarized sunglasses.
All that’s left to do is book now and meet Captain Nelson on the water for an excellent fishing trip that you won’t forget in a hurry!

El Capitan Nelson is great. Fun day fishing. Very worth the trip. Would highly recommend compared to other options.
Nelson picked us up from our hotel in Cabarete and chauffeured us to his fishing boat in Puerto Plata and after fishing took us to the Brugal rum factory tour at our request before taking us back to cabarete. Very friendly and nice guy.

My recent experience with Captain Herrera and High Z’s was top notch. From when the Captain picked us up in Cabarete until he dropped us off in the afternoon the service and experience was some of the best I’ve had on a fishing trip. Captain H and his first mate were very friendly and helpful throughout the fishing trip, making it a truly personable experience. The boat handled the water well and the fishing equipment was of high quality. Unfortunately we only caught one fish, a 3+ foot barracuda - a specimen I’d never reeled in before, so that more than made up for the lack of bites. Although there may be other fishing ventures in the area that appear to offer higher value, I would definitely join Captain H again, but likely on a 6 or 8 hour trip that would allow us to get into deeper water.

Thanks a lot for your comment! Sometimes the seaweeds lines are away and 4 hours are not good enough, so I recommend to book a 6 or 8 hours trip better.recommends High Z’s Fishing Tour
