Default Fishing out of Dominican Republic Punta Cana

Im planning on getting married there and will have a decent sized group of people with me. Many are big time marlin fisherman and wanted to make sure i have something available to them and me

Whats the opinion of the fishery down there and how is it @ the end of july into the start of Aug ? Who to stay away from or who to get setup with ?

the main fleet is in Casa De Campo Feb thru May 1, fishing for blue marlin on the FADS, then around May 1 we head up to Punta Cana to fish for white and blue marlin thru July. there is also a good FAD blue marlin bite generally August thru November out of Punta Cana

We will have our 48' G&S available in both places as above

Not bad, thats pretty close. Historically, does this time of the year produce decent amounts of blues ? Im not overly interested in anything ells. I have grown tired of stripped, white and sail fish and looking for that bigger sized blue

I know traditions is well know and a great boat and crew. I actually leave this Thursday to get married there next Monday. We are having 55 guest total.

We planned to fish with Daryl on Contango but schedules didn't line up for him to be there (capts need a break to, he's been fishing like crazy). I would highly recommend getting in touch with him to see their fall schedule for this year (pm me for his info).

He arranged for us to fish on the Emily with Humberto. We will be fishing a full day Saturday and have Wednesday open for another day of fishing as well. Daryl and Humberto and Lorraine have been absolute pleasures to deal with on the phone and via email.

If I can help you in any way let me know. We will be there for 11 days. We have let our travel agent work with the wedding planner directly to alleviate a lot of the hassle. We have a meeting Friday to go over all the final details and then the wedding is Monday since you have to be in the country 72 hours to have a marriage.

Made 3 trips to DR to fish with Daryl in 2015. Good luck on your trip and nuptials!

thank you sir,

No one has really answered this. Historically speaking, is the blue marlin fishing hot during this time of the year or pretty slow. Im mainly after some decent sized blues, white marlin and sails are not worth it to me

I can't speak on size, but August puts in at the prime time blue marlin bite so I would imagine you chances would be very high that time of year.

mostly small fish in the DR, up to say 450 lbs, its a small fish fishery, hence why we fish 20/30 and fly mostly

big fish is more July august in BVI/ St Martins Marlin Blvd has some 600 lb fish too

Grass was really bad this year so less boats in Punta Cana. There were also some 7 fish days in late Sep.
