St Lucia 2020
Since fishing in St Lucia and some of the other island chains in past years, I have wanted to go back to St Lucia and spend some time fishing this incredible destination.
Fishing there previously on the Ambush, our best day was 10 from 12 blues in 5 hours, and have been wanting to get back ever since. So 2020 we are back !!
Dominican Republic Fishing
Capt Tim Richardson has been fishing the world renowned light tackle blue marlin fishery in the Domincan Republic since 2012. First with the 61' Garlington "AMBUSH", and in 2015 on the 52' Viking "Prime Time". The DR as its known, is the place to go for 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.
We are the only boat that also specialises in fly fishing for blue marlin, with custom teaser rods, TFO fly rods, and Mako fly reels, we can provide everything, or bring your own gear. We can help you gain experience and learn more techniques for catching marlin on fly. We have helped many clients catch their first marlin on fly, as well as those more seasoned anglers catch the white and atlantic blue marlin they need for their quest for a sale on the fly rod.
My boat, the 48' G&S custom game boat 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 !!! The ability to stay on a fish is unequalled. Blue marlin in 34 seconds, no problem, 15 knots backwards, no problem !!!! We have an excellent boat, brand new tackle , a full suite of custom RodsbyDru trolling rods, and some of the best crew there 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.
2017 we won Champion Angler and 3rd overall in the Casa De Campo International tournament, and 2nd place in the Casa De Campo Cup with 44 blue marlin.
