He was followed by Coral Gables, Florida angler Stephanie Choate aboard “Ambush” who outshone her dad, the well known Tim Choate, by releasing six blues. Stephanie not only took Second Place as overall angler, but was also recognized as the tournament’s Top Lady Angler, while Third Place High Point Angler belonged to Taylor Beckford fishing aboard “Fa-La-Me” with a total of four blues.Dates are set for 2015 when the Casa de Campo International Blue Marlin Classic will move to a three fishing days format with a lay day.

The Casa de Campo Blue Marlin Classic may be over, but the legendary fishing season in the Marina Casa de Campo continues… With the waters between the Marina Casa de Campo and Punta Cana literally teeming with blue marlin, it’s clear that the 2014 fishing season is well on it’s way to living up to the 2013 season, pronounced as “one of the finest Blue Marlin seasons the world have ever seen”, by the Billfish Report.
Fishing season here in the Dominican Republic and more specifically the Marina Casa de Campo is between February and May, so if you’re a keen angler, now is the time to get out on the water.
