Punta Cana, Dominican Republic – Boats fishing out of Marina Cap Cana have had some of the best fishing this fishery has ever seen over the last week. The Fleet, which has only consisted of three to five (3-5) boats a day released 165 Billfish over the past week. The vast majority (90%) of these have been Blue Marlin, but there has also been good variety with three (3) Grand Slams. Blue Bird released one Grand Slam and Vitamin Sea with two Grand Slams.

While the “season” here is truly year round, the traditional peak season has normally passed by now. Don’t tell the Blue Marlin. We had four (4) boats release double digit Blue Marlin in a day this past week, with Blue Bird setting and then beating their own Marina record releasing sixteen (16) Blue Marlin followed by eighteen (18) the very next day. That put them only two Blue Marlin shy of the Atlantic Record of twenty (20) set by the Hooker in 1997 in the Cape Verdes.

The bite has been good for well over a month now. If you are looking to experienced one of the best Blue Marlin fisheries (not to mention a spectacular setting and Marina) the time is now.

** After we wrote this, Blue Bird released 23 Blue Marlin to set the new Atlantic Release Record.
