The Marina Casa de Campo is warming up for the next Casa de Campo Blue Marlin Classic scheduled for March 20th to 24th, and each day more and more sportfishing boats are arriving at the Marina ahead of the competition.
With the 2014 fishing season now in full swing, the Marina Casa de Campo is buzzing with exciting and successful fishing stories, as international fishing boats in residence for the season (February to May) set sail ever day in search of the king of the sea – the incredible Blue Marlin – currently found in abundance in the waters outside of the Marina Casa de Campo.
More than 500 Blue Marlins were released throughout the Casa de Campo fishing season last year, such a successful season that the Billfish report named the Dominican Republic Fishing Season 2013 “one of the finest Blue Marlin seasons the world has ever seen”.
So get ready for the 1st annual Casa de Campo Blue Marlin Classic! The tournament, being brought to Casa de Campo by Rick Alvarez of International Billfish Tournaments, Inc., will take place on Saturday and Sunday the 22nd and 23rd of March.
This year the Casa de Campo Blue Marlin Classic has a new feature, the tournament committee has unanimously decided to make this a 30-pound-test tournament, by popular demand. In addition to the fishing, the tournament will be accompanied by great parties, and of course there will trophies and prizes for the winners.
