Fishing for Blue Marlin has been booming 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.
