Inshore Fishing in Punta Cana

The Dominican Republic is well-known for its superb deep sea action, but did you know that  inshore fishing in Punta Cana has a respectable reputation as well? For inshore anglers craving a new exotic destination, Punta Cana (“Tip of the White Cane”) offers solid year-round fishing opportunities against some breathtaking scenery.
 

What to Expect

Located in the east of the country, Punta Cana has easy access to bountiful flats, as well as excellent surf and reef fishing. Because you can find reefs in shallow waters very close to the shore, inshore fishing here means one thing – a bigger diversity of catch.
 
The most productive time of the year to go inshore fishing is anytime from November to June. Snook, Permit, and Tarpon (the “Silver King”) are the primary suspects here, and they come in all shapes and sizes. 
 
Many experienced fly fishermen target the King here, and there’s no bigger thrill than chasing and outsmarting this gorgeous fish on fly tackle. They come pretty close to the trophy sizes found in Florida, and fight just as fiercely. One of the better spots to go after Tarpon is Laguna de Limon. 
 
You can also hook some large Snook, especially from April–June, and a lot of anglers come to Punta Cana for the sole purpose of hooking a Permit on a fly. These silvery beauties are plentiful in the skinny waters between reefs and beaches.
 
When it comes to reef fishing, you can expect Barracuda, Grouper, Yellowtail and Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Needlefish, and even Rainbow Runner. If you hit the reefs, there’s a bigger chance of hooking a mixed bag. If you’d like to focus on a particular species, there are charter captains that can make it happen.
 

Which Trip to Book

One of the best things about booking a trip out of Capa Cana Marina is that you’re going to get an all-inclusive memorable experience.
 
Many charters combine snorkeling and fishing on inshore trips, so when you’ve caught your fill of fish, you can jump into the crystal-clear turquoise waters and admire the marine life. You’re welcome to come aboard with your whole family, and the crew will make sure all of you have the best time.
 
If you’d like to take a more fishing-oriented approach, there are guides who run trips that’ll have you spending 6–8 hours face to gills with inshore favorites. On these expeditions, you can test your hand at both traditional and fly fishing – everything will be tailored to your preferences.
 
The charter usually provides all the licenses, fishing gear, and snorkeling equipment, as well as drinks and snacks. As you can see, all you have to do is show up, bring your best fishing game, and enjoy the full potential of inshore fishing in Punta Cana!

Don’t eat a resort buffets before going out on the water. It screws your stomach up. I’ve never gotten seasick in my life, but I ate the buffet about an hour before getting on the water and totally regretted it!!! It wasn’t seasick but nauseous from the food

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.

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.
