Default Punta Cana advice???

Going to Punta Cana next January/February and intend to do some deep sea fishing. Any recommendations re: which guide service to hire? I want to hire a boat for a private charter only and considering the expense would appreciate some recommendations. Thanks.

I did one in puerta plata years ago. they seemed more interested in getting us drunk than catching fish. 8 hours no fish. paid $120 US but it wasnt a charter

Went out 5 years ago at Punta. No fish on our boat. However other boats did catch. That was in feb or march, i do believe it was the slow season for catching.

Just a generalization--the fishing around the Dominican and Cuba is not good.

You could find a professional guide that is good, but they're few and far between. Mostly, they're just gonna boat you around to get you drunk and say "oh well, that's fishing" while holding their hands out for a tip.

I was there three years ago and booked whatever was available through the resort, pretty sure it was Gone Fishing Punta Cana.

Ended up on a much bigger boat than I was expecting with 9 others, but they had a variety of sizes. Typically I've been on boats that took max 4 people for deep sea fishing. Seas were pushing 6-8 feet so the bigger boat was welcome and bottomless beer was forgotten as soon as we cleared the barrier reef! In total we brought in 12 good sized mahi-mahi in four hours, I reeled in two. Most successful boat that afternoon.
