DEEPWATER FISHING MAKES THE DAY ON THE NORTH COAST OF THE D.R. WITH CAPT. RANDY RODE

By Randy Rode, Apr 2 2017 11:11PM

A lot of times after a day of trolling for blue marlin, Dorado, wahoo and tuna, our clients like to go for something different

Or......Sometimes when the pelagics aren`t biting too well, for whatever reason, I am asked if we can catch anything! Especially some species that are good to eat.

Well.....that is where deep fishing, known as deep-dropping comes in, it is productive, exciting and fun, you just never know what is going to come up!


We have a very good set up for fishing deep, a commercial model Electramate electric reel paired up to an 80W Penn International SVX, filled with 3,000 yards of 250` Spectra.


My other rig is a solid fiberglass, wire line rod, paired with a Penn International 30W, and it is retrieved with a "Reel Cranky", a cool device that clamps onto the reel handle, fits in the chuck of a cordless drill and does the cranking for you. It is a great compromise between pure electric fishing and manual.

We use a variety of weights, 1" re-bar, from 2# to 10# depending on the conditions. We fish in anywhere from 600` all the way out to 2,000` or more. It is a blast.


All the species we catch are good to eat, including queen snappers, mystic groupers, cardinal snappers, short big eyed torso, cardinal snappers, yellow-eyed snappers and many other exotic species.

Try this sometime, it is productive and fun.
