Prologue 1st off, had a Fantastic Trip! The plan was that my dad and my older brother, Kevin, would play 3 days of golf at the Punta Cana Resort and Spa while I fished all week wherever I could Secondly, I would like to personally and publicly thank Carlos Rodriguez for taking me out jigging two days on his boat during my stay. Carlos, I can't thank you enough for taking me out and popping my jigging cherry! And as luck would have it, I popped it on the same type fish I replied to your thread, "What Caribbean Fish?" (on the other forum) which is how we even started to communicate with each other. I feel that you are a kindred spirit; kind of like a brother from another mother You are a die hard fisherman just like me and find satisfaction from catching "little" inshore species like Jack Crevalle, Snook and even Lady Fish to Tuna, Marlin and everything and anything in between. You have the ability to utilize your beautiful boat everytime you're in the Punta Cana area, but yet you have the humility and humble nature to take out your kayak and fish the reefs somedays. That's what I love about you. Remember hermano, anytime you're in the Noreast this year or in St. Kitts for the next 3 years, call me up and it would be my greatest pleasure to take you out fishing or just show you around the area(s). Enjoy the pics and report! -Brian Pyun ___________________________________________________ We left Newark, NJ International Airport at 12:30PM on Monday and arrived to the Punta Cana Airport in the Dominican Republic by 3:30PM. We were shuttled to the Punta Cana Resort and Spa by 4PM and were blessed with the perfect Beach Casita Bungalow which was right on the beach and close to the main hotel and restaurants. Here are a few pictures from our Casita. What a view!
