    Talking Spearfishing in DR

    what are the best places for this sport? I might be going to Bavaro, Punta Cana.... is it good in terms of variety? quantity? is it legal to hunt lobster? and what about ciguatera? is it very common?

    Peace!

    Montecristi, Yes, No, NO*, Don't know, No**

    *Please Check if laws are applied in DR and below 100ft. under water.
    **Yes, but not for sports.

    Monte Cristi, you would be better off of Playa Buen Hombre. Go to Monte Cristi ask about El Guy. He runs a empanada stand there. Tell him you know Capt. Rob. He can hook you up. He speaks perfect English. There is a place after the airport there I cannot remember the name. The biggest Clams you have ever seen. El Guy's name is Raul. He lives by Chic Hotel. If you want to charter boat fishing here contact me.

    Dude, Spearfishing, should not be a sport at all, I mean, you aim at the fish and they don't have no idea what's going to happen to them. Try to fish them from a boat, and see how good you are.

    With all due respect my dear friend...you should consider you have to dive in their enviroment, get close enough, not to scare the fish away and shoot it in the right spot otherwise it will attack you or carry you to the depth considering the size...and still you might have to fight with it...all this while holding your breath (spearfishing while scuba makes no sense and it's not the true sport)....fishing on a boat while smoking a cigar or drinking a beer can't be more challenging...of course I respect line fishing and fishermen but you have to consider the whole picture....

    You forgot to mention the sharks. LOL!!!

    But seriously. Didn't someone catch a 700 pounder off the coast of SD?

    That's a lotta shark my friend.
