North Coast Sportfishing and B&B

Laguna Gri-Gri
Río San Juan, Dominican Republic

North Coast Sportfishing and B&B is operated by Captain Randy Rode, an experienced guide who has been in the charter boat industry for over 40 years. Equipped with a new boat and decades of knowledge of putting people on fish, he will take you for a trip to remember out of the scenic town of Rio San Juan on the north coast of the Dominican Republic.

Captain Randy operates a brand new 30 ft sportfisher that was custom built specifically for the local waters. “Vamos” has room for up to six anglers, who will enjoy the boat’s 360 degree fishability, cushioned seating, fully enclosed toilet, and large T-Top. A full complement of electronics and new fishing gear is at the disposal of all guests, and the boat’s twin Yamaha 4-stroke engines will take you to the best fishing spots quickly, quietly, and smoke-free.

It doesn’t get much better than this for exploring the waters north of the Dominican Republic. Traveling up to 30 miles offshore, North Coast Sportfishing will show you why this area is one of the Caribbean’s undiscovered fishing hotspots. You will be fishing unknown and rarely fished seamounts that rise up from over 9,000 ft deep to just 450 ft, with one spire going as high as 150 ft. This makes for incredible fishing, with Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Sharks, and many more exciting sportfish all counting among your potential targets.

Captain Randy runs each and every charter himself, and he promises to give 100% effort on every single one. He endeavors to send every customer who comes aboard his boat home with pleasant memories of their exciting and adventurous fishing experience.

With only the very best tackle, equipment, and electronics, North Coast Sportfishing and B&B is giving you the opportunity to go back to a time when you are the only boat in the water. Give them a try and let the ocean be yours for the day!

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.
