Captain Randy Rode has over 43 years of experience as a sport fishing Captain, starting his prolific career in the Florida Keys all the way back in the 1970`s, then moving on to fishing the Pacific waters of Costa Rica, and now the Caribbean. For nearly 10 years now, Captain Rode has been fishing the waterways of the North coast of the Dominican Republic, where the fishing is excellent and deep waters are virtually neighboring the shore. Out here, there’s no need to waste any time putting out the baits, as you start fishing within minutes of leaving the Laguna.

Due to the North Coast’s positioning, it is not uncommon to have large Marlin and other big game pelagics be caught very close to land, which is what differentiates these fishing grounds from most other popular fishing destinations along the Caribbean. Captain Randy also takes pride in making his own Fish Attracting Devices, or FADs, which have so far proven themselves very productive in the local waters.

Every trip with North Coast Sportfishing includes a full lunch, refreshments (beer, soda and bottled water), and all taxes and permits covered by Captain Randy. The boat is fully outfitted with high-quality tackle and a range of navigational electronics, including GPS, radio, fish finder as well as a real-time satellite tracking and full time communication with the North Coast’s home base. Captain Randy is personally present on each and every trip, and takes his fishing very seriously, while not sacrificing having a good time in the process.

The boat is 25 foot long with a maximum capacity of 4 anglers per trip, and can accommodate almost any type of fishing you and your group prefer. Captain Randy specializes in big game and bottom fishing as well as fishing on light tackle, catching anything from Rainbow Runners to trophy-sized Yellowfin Tuna.

I have been fishing with Capt. Randy as long as I can remember, both in the Florida Keys and in Costa Rica, so when he invited me to come down and fish with him on the North coast of the Dominican Republic, I jumped at the chance.

I have always caught plenty of fish with Randy, mainly tarpon, under the famous 7-Mile bridge, in Marathon, Florida, and even when the fish weren’t biting, I always enjoyed listening to the stories of his adventures around the Caribbean.

I was a little apprehensive at first, I had heard a little bit about the fishing in the Dominican Republic, but I didn`t really know that much, and I also had never heard of a “Super Panga”, as the Capt. Affectionately called his fishing boat.

As it turned out, everything was even better than I had expected. The boat was great, roomy, stable and well equipped, and the fishing, was nothing short of spectacular.

We hit a series of some kind of floating fish attracting devices that the fishermen put out in the water, and every time we got close to one we caught fish!

Mainly big Dorado, and about the time I was getting pretty tired of fighting these beautiful game fish, that`s when the marlin hit. Right out of nowhere, there he was! All lit up like a Christmas tree and ready to do business.

We fought the 200# fish for a half of an hour, got it to the boat, and got a good look and the hook came out, which was fine with me, because we were going to let it go anyway. I`m already planning my next trip.

Our trip to the Dominican Republic was great….one of our best trips ever! If you ever have a desire to go somewhere where there are very few tourists, in a very laid back atmosphere, their fishing operation is second to none! 100% professional, and they catch fish.

We had a blast with Capt. Randy. I have followed him all over the hemisphere fishing with him for the last twenty years! I only go with the best!

I have known Randy Rode for more years than I can count, but let`s just say 25 as a number, as a boat Captain and businessman in the Florida Keys. His work ethics and business ethics could serve as a standard in the charter industry anywhere. In the Dominican Republic, he has worked from sunup to sundown, just to be able to fish there. He gave up all his luxuries in the U.S. and worked 15 hour days before he left the Florida Keys, just to be able to move to the Dominican Republic. Anyone who has ever fished with, or ever spent any time with the man will back these statements up.

I could go on and on, but the bottom line is, if you want a fishing experience that you will remember fondly remember forever, in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, Capt. Randy Rode is your man.
