FISH ATTRACTING DEVICES IN TWO MILES OF WATER DEPTH OFF THE NORTH COAST OF THE DR
By Randy Rode, Jan 27 2017 09:00AM
. . . are producing good numbers of Dorado, Wahoo, and Tuna. All the time and effort and money we have invested in these FADS is really paying off. The deepest FAD we have placed so far is in 7,000` of water depth, nearly two miles deep, and is holding more than two miles of rope.
This particular FAD can move as far as a half a mile or more, according to the current and wind conditions, so sometimes it takes a bit of looking around to find it, but when we do, there is almost always fish around.
We work together very closely with the local fishermen concerning protocol for fishing these spots. The first one to arrive gets priority unless the second boat is the owner of the FAD, then the owner gets preference, although sometimes when we are all catching fish, it doesn`t seem to matter, as we are all busy hauling in fish.
As in all places in the world, nothing ever works perfectly, and there is always one or two boats that want to say they own the ocean, we just ignore them and go on about our business fishing.
Life is too short to fight over one or two fish.
See you soon for the fishing experience of a lifetime, right here in our hometown of Cabrera, and “Un-Discovered Paradise.”
