On March 15, fishing from the custom center console, “VAMOS”, out of the Rio San Juan, D.R. the team of Capt. Randy Rode and Capt. Steve Spagnuola, boated a broadbill swordfish, after only a day and a half of fishing. The swordfish, which was of legal length by U.S. federal fishery standards, was the first verifiable swordfish caught in the daytime on rod and reel, on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. The fish was boated after only 8 drops, getting four bites and catching the one fish.
In the process of fishing, the team also boated a prize Queen Snapper, tipping the scales at a whopping 27#`s!
In a series of reports taken from a local fishing newsletter, the team will continue the Quest for swordfish, until they can establish the area as a destination for this specialized and prized species.
