Capt Tim Richardson has been fishing the world renowned light tackle fishery in the Domincan Republic for the past 5 seasons on the 61′ Garlington “AMBUSH”, and in 2015 on the 52′ Viking “Prime Time”. The DR as its known, is the place to go for good days of white and blue marlin fishing, as well as some great fish for the table including swordfish. The fishery is primarily a light tackle experience, with the marlin between 40 and 250 lbs, with the odd bigger blue later in the season. It is quite common for double digit marlin days out of the DR.
Now I have my new boat, a 48′ G&S custom game boat, which is Tradition Charters boat in the Caribbean !!! “CHASER” is built to fish, with no compromise in its trolling and fish fighting agility. Those who know, know how special these boats are for light tackle and flyfishing !!! We have an excellent boat, brand new tackle and some of the best crew there is for our light tackle and flyfishing trips. Come for a day, come for a week.
The DR is a great destination for everyone, including the whole family at some of the finest resorts in the Carribean. A wonderful place, very safe, and we can help you with all of you travel needs.
Capt Tim is based out of two destinations:
Casa De Campo Feb 21 to April 29 2017. Capt Tim Richardson will be fishing out of Casa De Campo, a well known destination for light tackle blue marlin fishing. With many days of 4-6 blue marlin tagged and up to 10 fish seen. We are typically fishing 30 lb tackle, but also pitching with 50 lb for 100-250 lb blue marlin. This is the best place in the world for fly and light tackle blue marlin fishing that is close to the US.
For 2017 we have a lovely 3 bedroom condo with the boat parked behind it for your convenience. With a full time maid and golf cart and wifi, we are only 20 minutes from La Romana Airport, and an hour from Santo Domingo and Punta Cana on the new highway. I have an english speaking driver available to pick you up at the airport and bring you safely to the condo.
The boat and condo are available as a package or separately.
VERY limited availability, February 22 to March 14 is avialable, March 21 to 24, March 30 to April 12, then sold out till 2018 at Casa De campo
