Dongyin Township, as home to the striped beakfish, is a Mecca for fishermen. On Dongyin, dubbed “rock-fishing heaven,” you can catch fish just putting a line in the water at Zhongzhu Harbor Wharf. If you want to pit your skills against the sea, you can take a boat out to the rocks. You can find professional fishermen who will take visitors rock fishing, or fish from a boat; both experiences have their own surprises to offer.
