Dream Casting "We booked through the owner, Jack R. Even before we flew out to Punta Cana, Jack worked extremely well with us. He answered all of the concerns we had about the media reports going on. Once we arrived, the driver was on time, and a safe clean ride (well safe for Dominican driving!) Anderson was our first mate, and I’m sorry but I can’t remember the captain’s name.. Anderson and the captain had us on fish almost immediately. They didn’t have time to even cast all of the lines! My husband caught his dream fish, the Mahi Mahi. We are even going to have it mounted. Will definitely book again."
Great Fishing Trip "They gave an good warning of the conditions (5 to 6' seas) it was a little rough, and a few of got sick, but not there fault. We caught 1 marlin, 5 Mahi Mahi and 1 Wahoo. First mate was great. We were on a 5 hour private charter with 7 people. Well worth the money. "
Top Notch "As an avid deep sea fishermen, I will say that Jack and his company have a very well run organization. If you are going to do a deep sea fishing trip, do your home work. Ask questions up front about what type of fishing you will be doing, what species are in season. Look back at reviews from the previous year during the time of year that you will be there to see what types of fish were caught and how many, that will give you a feel for what you could expect."
1st Rate Experience "Gone Fishing is one of the most professional operations I have experienced booking fishing charters outside of the continental United States. Jack Rougerie has built a five boat fleet with experienced Captains and mates that can compete with the best of the best in places like Cabo San Lucas, Quepos Costa Rica, and Kona Hawaii. We fished three days on two different boats with two different Captains ... They worked hard to get us on the fish and even harder to keep the fish coming over the rail and on the deck. Blue Marlin, Dorado (Mahi), Tuna, and the ever present Barracuda were caught, with the Marlin released and the others shared and eaten!..."
Pro's "These guys are great. My wife and I went fishing with 2 other couples, on a day with heavy chop; 6-7 foot swell. But our captain (Miguel) and our first mate (Anderson) were excellent! I grew up fishing the Chesapeake bay, trollin for Striped Bass, but i have NEVER seen anyone work 6 lines at a time like Anderson. Even with rough seas, everybody aboard caught fish! The entire company, owner included, were extremely polite, and punctual, and if you've ever been to the Caribbean, that's a rare asset! I'm sure there are plenty of charters available, but these guys are definitely the best."
Once in a Lifetime "I was expecting not to catch anything but the sun and a buzz from the beer. Well we caught alright. 4 mahi mahi on at one time. We caught 5 Mahi Mahi and 2 Tuna. Our other group on a different boat caugh 4 Mahi Mahi and 1 Tuna and lost a Marlin."
