Where do i start,initially made contact for advice/info with 'Bigbite' aka Sara regarding the fishing.
After a few days chilling in DR,a short stroll from Dreams found myself and my wife outside the Bahibe fishing centre,ok not being unkind to Sarah and Pepe but its very much in keeping with the style of local buildings!!,but i was greeted with a warm affectionate welcome,whereby i then proceeded to book a full days deep sea-fishing on the boat 'Sara' for myself, as well as the island excursion trip for mysel and wife.
The deep-sea trip was the best trip i have ever had!!!! Pepe tried so hard to help me catch fish and did not clock watch,sticking rigidly to times.Due to his enthusiasm and friendliness i had a magnificent trip.We had to work at it though as for a major part of the day,i had caught a few tuna and a couple of 'cudas',but enjoyed it none the less!!!thats fishing!!!!,however,on the return back,still fishing and with Pepe not giving up,i managed to catch two large Mahi-Mahi (40 to 50lb),this in itself was fantastic,but then i managed to fulfill a life-long dream after many years of trying to catch a FISH OF A LIFETIME----- a Marlin (approx 90 - 100 lb).Pepe was as excited as i was!!!!!!,arriving back in the dark,we were met by his lovely kids,who took photos of us with the fish!!!!
Three days later,my wife and i experienced the island trip,along with ten other holiday makers!!!
Had a great time,witnessed the beauty of the DR,as well as seeing first-hand local life,Pepe made the trip educational as well as fun!!! He cooked up lovely Lobster,Mahi-Mahi (caught by myself),chicken etc on the BBQ.
I would definately recommend this trip at the Bahibe fishing centre, if you would like an excursion that shows the natural way of life in the DR and not a commercalised 'booze cruise'.
Thanks Sara and Pepe for making our holiday!!!!!!!!!
