Deep Sea / Big Game Fishing in Mauritius
Mauritius is very famous for deep sea fishing which has been practiced by the locals for many years. With perfect conditions prevailing throughout the year, the possibilities to fight giant Blue Marlin, Black marlin, Mako sharks, Tuna and many other exciting fish are made available to experienced anglers and beginners.
Mauritius holds several world fishing records (IGFA), including that of the mako shark of 1115 pounds, the blue shark of 400 pounds, a bonito of 41.5 pounds, a white tuna of 224 pounds and a ‘bécune’ of 125 pounds.
The famous Blue marlin’s enormous size and legendary fighting ability makes it one of the most highly targeted gamefish in the world. These true giants are top of the food chain. They lurk in the waters surrounding Mauritius, waiting to pounce on an unsuspecting tuna or a lure bubbling and splashing behind a boat. They are generally loners and put on a spectacular battle when hooked, jumping all over the surface while also staying under and fighting down and dirty.
Battle’s with these monsters can last well over three hours; the longest fight in Mauritius was twenty six hours before the line broke!
With its rich marine fauna, Mauritius is revered by Deep Sea Fishing enthusiasts worldwide.
Come and discover firsthand the roar of the inboard Caterpillar engines, and the scream of tightly stretched line when a marlin or other gamefish has struck the kona, is a pulse-racing experience!
