Punta Cana Fishing

There's a myriad of factors making Punta Cana fishing some of the best available anywhere in the Caribbean. It is undoubtedly the #1 spot for Wahoo and Mahi-Mahi lovers, although trophy-sized Blue Marlin hookups (especially during the summer months) as well as generous winter Tuna seasons are anything but uncommon. It is also one of the best places in the world to hook a White Marlin, with the species frequenting the area in large numbers from the end of February deep into the Summer. It should surprise no one that multiple IGFA records have already been set, and subsequently broken in these very waters. Above all though, it is the impressive diversity of fishing types, styles and techniques that attract thousand of visiting anglers to the Punta Cana shoreline every year - from lagoon fishing, reef ranging and fly fishing, to squaring off against some of the strongest deep sea pelagics the Caribbean have in store – Punta Cana has it all.
