The first annual “Dominican Billfish Triple-Header tournament” is scheduled to start this year and the organizers, International Billfish Tournaments, have selected Casa de Campo as the destination to open this prestigious international event.
The Dominican Billfish Triple-Header tournament comprises of 3 international fishing tournaments; the Casa de Campo International Blue Marlin Classic, the International Cap Cana Billfish Shootout and the Cap Cana Classic. While there will be winners and prizes for each individual tournament, fishing boats taking part in at least two out of three tournaments will accumulate points to determine the overall winner of the Dominican Billfish Triple-Header, determined at the conclusion of the third and final leg.
Here in Casa de Campo, the Dominican Billfish Triple-Header will open with the Casa de Campo International Blue Marlin Classic from 17th to the 22nd of March. Having only started last year, the Casa de Campo International Blue Marlin Classic has already made a name for itself as one of the biggest and best bill-fishing tournaments in the Dominican Republic. Last year’s event saw a grand total of 73 Blue Marlin releases over the 2 day competition.
The Dominican Republic (the east coast and especially Casa de Campo) was recently named #6 in the top 10 billfisheries of the year by the Billfish Report, owing to an outstanding 2014 fishing season which saw fishermen coming out of the Marina Casa de Campo regularly catching 5+ Blue Marlin a day.
The 2015 fishing season in Casa de Campo is due to open later this month and will run through to June. With the Dominican Billfish Triple-Header tournament and the Casa de Campo International Blue Marlin Classic, as well as numerous other events, there can be no doubt that 2015 fishing season will be unforgettable.
