Le Dodo - Marlin Tours Mauritius

Jetty At Centre De Peche Du No…
Trou Aux Biches, Mauritius

Le Dodo is a 36’ sportfishing machine, powered by twin Cummins diesel engines, with maintenance on a weekly basis. The vessel comes equipped with GPS and VHF radio, echo-sounder and emergency rockets.

As far as fishing equipment is concerned, the crew utilizes recent models of notable fishing brands, to make sure you are provided with the best service possible. The boat mainly features high-quality tackle by Penn International. Two outriggers, a single centerrigger as well as Penn downriggers can all be found on board, in mint condition.

Le Dodo is the current record holder for Blue Marlin catch in Mauritius, which stands at 1430 lbs. On the other hand, the crew enjoys running family fishing trips just as well. The Le Dodo team is headed by Jerome Douce, company leader and Le Dodo‘s captain, together with their highly skilled Mate, Bruno Rencier. Both of them will put their years of experience and fishing skills to use to ensure you have a great experience on the water.

Le Dodo’s seasoned team will do everything they can to make sure your trip is a success. The warm waters, tropical weather and premier fishing hotspots are just some of the reasons Mauritius is visited each year by traveling anglers from around the world. Some of the species you’ll have the opportunity to target include Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi and many other popular pelagics frequenting the offshore grounds.

The Big Game Fishing Boat “Le Dodo” is available at the jetty of Centre de Peche du Nord, Trou aux Biches.

Hello
It was a very successful fishing day. Jerome and Bruno, both very experienced fishermen. Have Bonitos caught in TOP weather. Unfortunately, my wife was not so well, so I stopped the trip after 3.5 hours. I would have liked to try to land a larger fish. Despite everything a successful fishing trip. With this two Fischer, with good equipment and lures, one can only recommend. Maybe next year I’ll make another fishing trip with the DoDo.

I was fishing in many different countries of the world,but what happens on the
11th of january2018 was absolutly cracy.At 6.30h we start fishing up to the North.On the way we catch two small tunas.When we arrived the famous EMILIA BANK we got a massive Sailfish-triple hookup.With 9 lines in the water the chaos was perfect.But with the help of Jerome and Bruno we got all of them.
I shared the trip with a nice couple from poland.It was a perfect start for Lucas at his first offshore fishing trip ever.But it was not enough….
After one hour trolling we get the next Action.The result was a nice Blue Marlin.
-no time to celebrate,lures back in the water the Show must go on.
One hour later Lucas was in fight with his first Blue Marlin.After a hard fight we had our second Marlin in the boat.Now it was time to celebrate,we had a lot of fun.
I can highly recommend the Le Dodo-Team(Antoinette,Jerome,Bruno,Volker)
Thank you

The crew picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the boat. The boat was already prepared and was ready to go as soon as we arrived. The crew was changing lures all the time and always looking for signs of fish. After a while we got a few yellow fin tunas on the hook and the fishing was underway. It was very exciting! Then a marlin caught the lure and the fishing experiance went from very good to best of my life. The big marlin gave areal fight and the crew, Bruno (acted as my personal trainer) and Jerome steered the boat. After 1,5 hours we had landed the marlin! Bruno and Jerome was extremly professional and knew exactly what to do and guided me in every step. I can really recommend this trip. The service, the professionalism, the sixth senes of the crew made this a experiance of a lifetime! Thank you!
