Fishing Q&A with Anders Bogebjerg

Anders Bogebjerg, owner of Palmera Fishing, recently sat down and answered a few questions about fishing. Anders started fishing at the age of 4 and is today an avid fisherman. He rarely goes a week without fishing and usually heads out for some inshore fishing or deep sea fishing every chance he gets – with or without clients.

Q: When is the best time for fishing in the Dominican Republic?

A: This all depends on what fish you are targeting. Most of the fish are here all year round, in smaller or larger numbers. Normally, April – July are the best months for white marlin. July – November is blue marlin season. Dorado and wahoo run all year but are greater in numbers from September – May. Barracudas and tuna run pretty much all year; depending on what side of the island you are fishing from.

The best season for inshore fishing is November – June and snook fishing is especially good from April – June. You can catch snappers, needlefish all year and yellow tales are abundant in November.

Q: When is the worst time for fishing in the Dominican Republic?

A: August tends to be a slow month. There are a lot of blue marlins, but no guarantee for catching them!

Q: Where is the best place for fishing in the Dominican Republic?

A: Generally, the fishing around the Dominican Republic is great and the ocean is loaded with fish. It all depends on what you are fishing for, which might make some areas better than others.

Q: What is your favorite fish to catch?

A: I love catching dorado (mahi-mahi). It is a fun fighting fish to catch and you find a school of them, you may easily catch 20 – 50 fish. Of course, the big blue marlin is every fisherman’s dream (including mine) and there are a lot of them around the Dominican Republic.

Q: Are there any spots in the ocean where you have a better chance of catching fish? 

A: All underwater structures create natural habitats for the fish and are great places to find and catch them. There are also several fishing stations in the ocean that attract a lot of fish and that we usually pass by.

Huge Barracuda caught on Marlin Chaser on June 24, 2013

June 24, 2013

Huge Barracuda caught on Marlin Chaser

 

After a morning of inshore fishing on Marlin Chaser where we caught several Snappers, Jacks and Yellow Tails, we dropped the clients of at the beach restaurant in Juanillo Beach in Cap Cana, for them to prepare the fresh caught fish for lunch for the clients.

 

After dropping the clients of, we hit the gas to get back to the marina. But as we are cruising over the shallow in front of Juanillo beach, we passed a huge Barracuda. I was so irritated that I didn’ have a bait ready, but sometimes things happen out of the blue.

 

Less then 2 min later I spotted another BIG dark shadow moving in the shallows. I called out to Capt. Pico to slow the boat down and I jumped down from the fly bridge. I reached for the first rod I could see and hooked on a hook on a metal leader. I grabbed a small Jack from the livewell, and put the hook through it’s back. I casted the bait about 10 feet in front of the Barracuda, and with in seconds I was fighting the MONSTER.

After about 10 min of fight, we landed the huge Barracuda.

The monster weighed in at 31lb (15kg), and was over 4 feet long.

 

I hope you enjoyed the video’s of the fight.

Inshore Fishing June 23, 2013 on Marlin Chaser

June 23, 2013 

Inshore fishing on Marlin Chaser

Michael (Mike) A Siemer, Owner of Marlin Chaser is in town for the week, and we went fishing today.

The ocean has been rough for a few weeks, which kept us inshore today, which is such a new experience for Mike.

We started the day fishing the inside of the reef and the different reef banks in front of Puntacana Resort. We landed several small Snappers, Jacks, Yellow Tails and Groupers.

Mike has always loved Snook fishing, which he has done a lot of in Florida, but he has never really landed a big Ocean Snook. We have told him about the Snook fishing here in Punta Cana, and he didn’t really believe us….. boy did we prove him wrong.

We got some small live bait, and started fishing. After about 10 min we hooked onto a BIG Snook.

Mike started fighting the Snook, and after about 5-10 min, the Snook made it into the shallow water by the rocks, and broke the line on one of the rocks.

After having seen the Snook, we estimate the Snook to be 30-40 pounds.

We continued fishing, and Pico (Captain of Marlin Chaser), hooked on to a NICE Jack, which he was fighting for several min.

At the same time as Pico is fighting this Jack on one side of the boat, Mike starts casting on the other side of the boat, and all of a sudden we hear the line screaming of his reel.

Snook on……

The battle begins, and the Snook is trying to get into the rocks where we lost the earlier fish. Mike, being the experienced fisherman he is, keeps fighting the fish, and steers it out of the rocks, and a few min later, the Snook is safely landed on the boat. A nice 10 pound Snook, who we will invite for dinner.

This was the culmination of a great inshore fishing day in Punta Cana.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures and the video’s.
