As you have probably already heard, the Dominican Republic is one of the world`s top destinations for targeting blue marlin in big numbers.


I have been fishing these productive waters for more than 10 years now, and I can say without hesitation, that this is one of the very best marlin fisheries I have had the pleasure to fish.


I have a brand new custom-designed 30` boat, ready to go. I run all my trips personally as the captain, with two deckhands. We have only the very best Penn International and Shimano tackle, and always the freshest baits and a good supply of live bait, ready for any opportunity that may come up.


I fish out of the Rio San Juan, Laguna Gri-Gri, about 200 miles to the west of Cap Cana, we get the same bite as they do, but without any boat traffic. We can fish all day long and only see one or two boats.

I offer fishing trips, and first-class accommodations in our private hillside B&B, Casa Aurora.

Get in touch with me today for some great package deals and fish one of the world`s top marlin fishing destinations.


Thanks, Randy

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC SPORTFISHING….RED HOT!


After successfully surviving hurricane season, we are lucky to not have incurred any damage at all.Our B&B and the sportfishing boat are both 100%, and ready to rock and roll!We have been getting reports from some of the boats fishing in our area, and the conditions look good, clean, blue water close to the edge and plenty of bait around. Some of our local friends have been catching good numbers of cojinua, (google eyes) from the shoreline, a very good indicator of the overall health of the fishery.

We are offering some great package deals for this season. All package deals include pick-up and drop off at the airport, either Las American in Santo Domingo (SDQ), or Puerto Plata (POP).We have a full meal plan to accommodate any palate, from freshly caught seafood to locally produced beef and pork, we have it all!

So stop dreaming and start planning! We are standing by to hear from you!

Just fill out the contact page on the website or send me a PM on my Facebook page, RANDYRODE, send me an e-mail, passenger pigeon, any form of communication you wish, or just pick up the phone and call! 1-809-464-1557

Here it is folks, we scraped by, only by an extra 10 or 20 miles offshore, that`s what separated us from for sure devastation, and just some damage. A lot of our Dominican friends lost their homes, including our gardener who lives with his mother, who is living with us now till we can re-build his home.


A 60` tall palm tree in the back yard came down and missed the house by a few feet!


Our boat “Vamos” is ok, thanks to the valiant efforts of my friend and deckhand, “Lindo”.


Many have suffered damage, but we will re-coup, re-build, and push forward, it`s the Caribbean spirit.


Our hearts go out to the people who have suffered in the islands, and those who have suffered terrible losses. Those who are still in the path of the storm must take care and prepare.


Thanks for all the support, it means a lot to us!


All our love, Randy, Dawn, and Nikki the dog

We have had the good fortune to have fished quite a few days during the first days of August, here on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, aboard our new sportfishing boat, “VAMOS”, and we have been doing well.

The Dorado bite has been consistent on a daily basis, with plenty of big bulls and cows around. Most of the action has been centered around 6,000` of water depth, which is only about 7 miles offshore!


Although you are almost guaranteed a bite when you are fishing a FAD, there has been some scattered sargasso around, producing a variety of different sized Dorado.

Fast trolling a few days ago, we caught a nice big, fat wahoo about 35#`s or so, which made a nice dinner for myself and my angler.

On that same trip, we hooked up an estimated 400#+ blue marlin, which ate a Moldcraft lure very agressively.


After a very spectacular series of jumps, dives, and other antics, we seemed to have the fish under control, but sadly, after another series of wild greyhounding jumps, he got wrapped up in the leader, and broke us off, but the show was almost as good as bringing him boatside for the release.


WE HAVE GREAT FISHING HERE ALL YEAR AROUND
