After the passage of a weak cold front here on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, we are enjoying pleasant North and NE breezes. These onshore winds are important to bring the big schools of game fish to our area. I am getting scattered reports of big Dorado and blue marlin being caught up and down the coast.
With every day that passes, the fishing gets incrementally better.
The whole scenario is on the verge of breaking wide open, so keep up with my reports to get the most up to the minute fishing reports, plus other bonus information.

Check out this photo of a really weird shark! There are so many strange creatures in the oceans.
I caught a six-gilled shark right here off the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, a few years ago. VERY RARE!
They can grow to the size of 16 or more feet long and weight up to 2,000#`s or more! The one we caught had been eaten right up to the head by small tiger sharks, during the hooking and subsequent fight of the gigantic fish.
I will dig out some great photos of this fish and post them in a few days. Just the head alone weighed over 400#`s!

We are right into the best fishing of the year, here on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic.
We have put out a bunch of new FADs, and the big Dorado just love their new accommodations! Till we troll a beautifully prepared, freshly caught ballyhoo in front of them, they just can`t resist it.
Big wahoo are making another appearance too, so the entire offshore scene is really heating up!
There is bait every where, inshore and offshore. I have been working like crazy, making up new rigs, sharpening hooks, and fine tuning our tackle all the way around.
We have a lot of fishing trips coming up, so I want to be really ready!
Shoot me an e-mail and I will make you up a super quote on your up-coming fishing vacation!

Every once in while we get the itch to go deep fishing, and we do. I have a really nice deep-dropping outfit, a big Penn 14/0 with a 30 amp 12VDC motor on it, high-speed retrieve and several thousand yards of 150# Spectra does the job real well.
We are basically meat fishing, so we drop sets of multiple hooks, and use a few other tricks, that help to increase productivity. Anyway you cut it, it is hard fishing, requiring a lot of patience, and concentration, but since I have a lot of experience in this type of fishing, I really love it.
You never know what you are going to come up with. Some of our best catches are purely by accident, like when a 40# Mystic grouper eats a small yellow-eyed snapper and stays hooked, we really like that.
Otherwise, feast your eyes on this cooler full of queen snappers!!
For more information on any kind of fishing, we offer a full package deal, at very reasonable prices.
