We are right at the peak of Dorado season, and the fish are EVERYWHERE!. All our FADS are producing fish, and the recent NE winds are bringing the fish closer to the edge of the drop-off every day!
We have been using our Sea Surface Temperature, (SST) service to great advantage.
When I get up at 4:00 AM to start getting ready for the day, the first thing I do, after my cup of coffee, of course, is to consult Terrafin.com and look for temperature breaks, concentrations of chlorophyll and other indicators of where the fish may be.
Then I use the software on the SSt site to fix my point of origin, and then put my cursor on the temperature break I want to fish for that day.
I always have my hand-held GPSl handy, so I then enter the Latitude and Longitude as a temporary waypoint, giving me a destination to shoot for during the day.
These temperature breaks almost always hold Sargasso weeks, and subsequently lots of sea life, Dorado, Marlin, Tunas, Bonitos, and other pelagics.
We have this fishing down to a science. This year marks my 10th year fishing the waters of the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, and my 47th year as a professional Captain.
“EXPERIENCE IS MY GUARANTEE”
These are just the biggest of the Dorado we caught this day with Andy Daniels and Dan Carvill, my good fishing buddies. We take all the smaller fish and donate them to the locals, our way of giving back to the community.
Hope to see you soon, Randy
