Trip Info


In the last few weeks here at North Coast Sportfishing and B&B we have been putting out several new Fish Attracting Devices, also known as FADS. These FADS are anchored to the bottom using a heavy concrete weight, and are attached to floating buoys and other floating objects on the surface. We also attach palm fronds to the FADS to attract and hold fish. Our first FAD is located 5.4 nautical miles from the entrance to the harbor where we keep our boat, the Laguna Gri-Gri, a freshwater lagoon, and a very beautiful location on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic.
We have been leaving the dock early and catching fish at 7:30 in the morning, right away. Most of the catches are Dorado, varying in weight from 5 to 8# up to the bigger bull Dorado up to 40#`s or more.
Upon arriving at the FAD, we make a few circles around it with our trolled ballyhoo, and then retrieve the lines and tie up to the last buoy, where we fish for triple tails, oceanic triggerfish, blue runners and rainbow runners. We use the blue and rainbow runners for live bait, fishing on the surface or attaching break-away weights and dropping them down as deep as 400`.
The action can be fast and furious, sometimes hooking up multiple fish at the same time.
This type of fishing is a lot of fun because everyone always has a rod in their hand and is catching something, whether it be baitfish, a delicious tripletail for make ceviche later on, or a big bull dorado. Fishing fun for the whole family. Log onto today and check out more information about our sportfishing operation, fishing the water of the North Coast of the Dominican Republic for blue marlin, dorado, wahoo, tuna, and many other species for more than 10 years. Capt. Randy Rode has more than four decades of experience guiding anglers from all over the world to great sportfishing catches, so you will be in good hands.
