Fishing for Blue Marlin has boomed in the Dominican Republic over the last 5 years and the country is now one of the biggest Blue Marlin fisheries in the whole world. While high season for Blue Marlin here runs from July to September you can find the species in the water all year round.

High season means just that - Blue Marlin double headers have been fairly frequent, with many charters quoting a catch a day in the summer. In recognition of this fact, the Billfish Report named the Dominican Republic as no. 1 billfishery in 2013, calling the 2013 season there "one of the finest Blue Marlin seasons the world has ever seen."

Marlin here tend to be slightly smaller than average, but their abundance and agility certainly makes a trip to the Dominican Republic for Marlin fishing more than worthwhile.

Take Dramamine! The boat definitely rocks so better safe than sorry. They fish the top waters which was unexpected. I’m used to fishing at lower depths. Cool part is many fish will breach making for a fun experience. Food and beverages were provided but we didn’t partake much. Wear a good hat and sunglasses as the UV rays are very strong in Punta Cana! Also wear shoes you can slip off as you get ankle deep in the water to board the “water Uber” out to the main boat.

I was going all out for the Marlin. But weather was great and lots of fish about. Captain and crew of the Cana were great and did everything they could to get me my Marlin. Next time. Recommend this to anyone who wants some action and a great day out.

Book with Carlo, Mayo, and Chichi ! We sleighed the mahi mahi and had the very best time ! We had a group of 6 ladies and two of them had never gone deep sea fishing before, it was phenomenal ! Boat was throughly cleaned, you don’t have to touch bait, all of them worked so hard for us and were so polite.

I think the fishing is as good as the charters skill level is. There were a lot of fish there at the time. But we were the only charter to catch that day.

For first time anglers, be prepared for sea conditions and come with an open mind knowing a great fishing day is not always defined by the number of fish you catch! Trust your trained, knowledgeable captain and crew and they will get the job done!

Make sure you bring your motion sickness pills or the patch on your neck. The North Atlantic on a beautiful day is choppy 5 - 8 ft waves is the normal. 86 and sunny with a slight 8 mph wind. and the ocean was moving. When you catch fish it is well worth it. I would do this again in heartbeat.

Most trips are trolling only. Ask specifically for bottom fishing with younger kids as action is more important then catchinggghg a bug fish. Bring Gravol if not used to being on a boat. Take some before getting on and your trip will be much more pleasant.

Go early in your trip, Captain will clean fish for you to take to your condo or a restaurant to prepare it for you. Your fresh catch will be way better than the fish they purchase at a restaurant.

Get ready for choppy water. They call it fishing not catching. Some days are better than others but everyday on the water is great.
