SO, LET’S BEGIN! 

One cost of the Dominican Republic is located on the Atlantic Ocean. The other on the Caribbean Sea. Of course, we all know and understand that the Atlantic Ocean is very different from the Caribbean Sea. Accordingly, deep-sea trolling fishing on different shores of the island will be different. Most fishing boats are located in Punta Cana. Perhaps this is due to the fact that Punta Cana is the largest tourist resort of the Dominican Republic. From other side it can be because the best deep-sea trolling fishing is over here.

LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT IS DEEP-SEA TROLLING PUNTA CANA FISHING ABOUT?

The essence of deep-sea trolling fishing is that the bait is pulled in the upper layer of water. Frequently using large rods that are attached to the board. the boat with motors. On such a specially equipped boat can be about 10 equipped fishing rods. Like any other method of fishing, trolling requires certain skills in the development of equipment, knowledge of fishing habits. As well as of the concentration of fish at a certain time in a certain water area. also knowledge of bottom topography also would be useful. So as the ability to drive the boat.

Many fishermen neglect to troll, considering trolling fishing to be less dynamic and sporting than catching spinning (away when the bait is constantly thrown and wound on a fishing tackle and reel), but this is not entirely true. This is a very exciting and exciting way of fishing, which brings beautiful trophy samples and indescribable minutes of dealing with large, strong and beautiful fish.

I START WITH THE ADVANTAGES OF TROLLING PUNTA CANA FISHING:

Only with deep-sea trolling fishing can you catch trophy fish. The fight with a blue marlin, which can last up to an hour or more, these feelings, all the emotions experienced. They are  unforgettable!  probably it is the most important advantage!

WHAT EQUIPMENT IS USED FOR DEEP-SEA TROLLING FISHING? HOW TO CHOOSE IT CORRECTLY?

For trolling fishing in freshwater we use special fishing rods. The test is worth choosing within 15-60 kilograms. But for sea trolling, we will need more serious fishing rods. Here the line diameter will be 4 mm. we are focusing on the fish, such as tuna or marlin, which weight can reach up to 100 kg. Also you need to remember that the rods must be suitable for installation on the vessel. As for the length of the spinning. You should not take the length more than two and a half meters. When buying, pay attention to the weight of the rod also. It should be simple enough, but at the same time durable and reliable.

BAITS

Very large and heavy baits can be used for trolling, which is very inconvenient when fishing for spinning. It is common to use deep-water bait as well as live-bait different lures or ordinary silicone.

REELS

Next, on the list are special deep-water trolling reels. They should be equipped with a simpler line release system. It allows you to withstand a stronger load. also, the width of the reel is a positive thing.

Very useful to have with you an echo sounder. It will allow you to track the depth and also find fish. Desirable  also to have a GPS-navigator, which  allows to independently build a route for fishing, taking into account the most memorable places.

FISHING IN PUNTA CANA. WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?

As far as I understand, in order to catch a really big fish, you must first decide where you will catch it. Of course, you can rely on luck, “blindly” combing water spaces. But experienced trollingists know how to orientate on hunting birds, seaweed, favorite places of the trophies. Of course, success or failure in fishing directly depends on many factors. For example, pressure, strength, and direction of the wind, and others. Some professional anglers claim that the moon stage also affects the fish bite. These are the factors that directly affect the activity of the bite and, accordingly, the success of fishing.

LAKE, RIVER OR OCEAN

If I go fishing in a lake or river, then my approach to fishing is different from fishing in the Ocean.

The first thing I do when I arrive at any place for fishing is a focused search for promising places for fishing and the fish itself. Not spinning the fishing rods and do not start frantically choosing the bait, but methodically I pass under the motor those areas that interest me, studying the depths with the help of the echo sounder in combination with the GPS navigator, which helps me build a future fishing route.

All the places that interest me are “clogged” in the navigator. In that case, if the echo sounder finds a really interesting place – both by the relief and temperature of the water, as well as by the accumulation of a really good trophy, I start fishing. The signal to start fishing can be the discovery of a large enough cluster of small fish, which must necessarily attract the attention of a predator.

PROCESS

When you decided about the place of fishing, you should go to the next item. – The choice of bait. The main thing that interests me at this stage is its working depth and color. When I caught a big fish somewhere or having noticed it on the echo sounder, I am starting my fishing time. I am not limited to geographic coordinates, but always indicating the depth at which this fish was kept.

Knowledge of the “correct” depths and the ability to determine them are necessary when fishing by the trolling method.

Often, the color of the water is also very important when deep-sea trolling fishing (affects the choice of color of the bait) and the presence of underwater grass. By the way, look for places and fish that are interesting for fishing time, determine the depth of the wiring, select the bait and the way of its wiring!

PUNTA CANA FISHING, TROLLING

 GOOD OR BAD TECHNIQUE FOR GETTING A TROPHY?

The simplest place for trolling is the big water that is the ocean. Let’s look at trolling fishing in an open area, for example, in the Atlantic Ocean, or it can be any other deep parts of the reservoir. Some, mostly inexperienced anglers, cling to the shore, hoping to catch the little things. But at the same time, they lose the opportunity to catch a big trophy. Remember, in hot weather, the bait should be kept in the upper layer of water. Fish that are in the middle layer with low oxygen content, eat little and is completely inactive.

A fish that does not like such conditions rises to the upper layers. Some novice fishermen catch fish in the depths without even knowing that there are no fish at all. This is another case when you need an echo sounder.

So, the next moment I want to talk about is the pros and cons of catching trolling.

THE ADVANTAGES OF TROLLING PUNTA CANA FISHING

The main advantage of trolling is the ability to carry out fishing at once with several rods with different baits. You can also use the most diverse bait, even the largest. The undoubted advantage is that the bait is always in the water, which significantly increases the chances of a good catch. And, of course, the fact that fishing is possible on huge areas of the reservoir, which can not affect the amount of fish caught.

DISADVANTAGES OF TROLLING FISHING

But this method of fishing is not without flaws. The main disadvantage is the need for expensive equipment. Indeed, without a boat, echo sounder, navigator and other equipment, trolling will not make sense. Also, an undeniable drawback is the increased danger when fishing, even the slightest violation of safety rules can lead to unforeseen situations. Trolling fishing is designed exclusively for catching predatory fish species, which some anglers might not like.

Trolling fishing is a very exciting way of fishing. In addition, it is very effective. There is hardly any, even the most inexperienced fisherman, who is not lucky to return home without prey.
