High Z’s Fishing Tour

In demand!

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, and Wahoo 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!

I grew up fishing in the Caribbean waters. I am a third generation fisherman, who grew up fishing with his dad and siblings at an early age. I have won many prestigious Billfish tournaments held in Ocean World, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Because of my curiosity for fishing at an early age, I asked many questions in the fishing docks to experienced fishermen who provided me with pointers and teaching methods. It was my passion for fishing that brought me to become a captain. On my trip you also get two for one with my passions: An experienced Fisherman and a Chef; to cook is another of my passions, so as a special service, we'll cook on board our catch for free.
