    Default This Gringo wants to fish!

    My wife and I are going to Puerto Plata first week of October. She loves to snorkel I want to fish.

    Snorkeling should be easy but I need ideas for fishing.

    Looking for a reasonable "Party Boat" not a small charter something reasonable. Also where can I do some shore line fishing?

    What gear should I bring? How easy is it to get bait and tackle or what tackle should I bring.

    Hi, I go with local fishermans in front of Sosua. I have tried also Puerto Plata, but it seems due to the harbour the fish doesn´t stay there. Baits you can find from LAs Sirenas (Local Walmart) in Puerto Plata.

    Also if you want to go from Puerto Plata, then contact Mel Tours, they can organize you the trip/boat. Mel' Tour, Tour operator in Sosúa, Puerto Plata, Cabarete and for the Riu Hotels, Lifestyle, Sun Village Resort and Sámana

    I've not attempted to fish yet but hung out with the spear fisherman at the beach in Costambar. They're quite friendly and willing to give instructions to curious onlookers... they're hoping to sell some of their catch. The reefs are close enough to the shoreline to swim out to or kayak I did some exploring with the snorklers who were looking for conch shells and found myself a gold ring in the sand.
