Dominican Republic ranked #6 in top 10 billfisheries of the year
Every year the The Billfish Report announces it’s Top 10 Billfisheries of the Year, and it just named the Dominican Republic as #6!
And while the Dominican Republic was ranked #1 in 2013, coming in at #6 is still a great success for the east coast of the Dominican Republic, with “some of the finest Blue Marlin fishing in the Atlantic. They may not get the big girls in these waters, with only two (2) reported to us over 500 lbs, but they make up for that in quantity.” Says The Billfish Report.
With fishermen coming out of the Casa de Campo regularly catching 5+ Blue Marlin a day, 2014’s fishing season ended with a total of 855 blue marlin releases, 49 of the more elusive white marlin were also released, along with other species of fish, such as tuna, mahi-mahi’s, and wahoo. In addition, an enormous 376 pound swordfish was also landed by the crew of Contango.
2014 fishing season at the Marina Casa de Campo welcomed some familiar faces, such as the Betsy and the Shark Byte, as well as several new friends; Hey Girl, the Whoo Dat, and Special Situation, descending upon the Marina Casa de Campo in search of excellent blue marlin fishing this area is known for.
This year’s fishing season will be open from February to June, with Casa de Campo’s Blue Marlin Classic taking place from March 17th -22nd.
