We had a great outing.  It was my son’s 14th birthday and he loves fishing.  We were staying at the Paradis hotel and picked up from there.  The boat was clean and comfortable and all the equipment was great.  We caught 11 skipjack tuna and had a Marlin on the line (it came right up to the boat after one of the skipjack we were reeling in) but weren’t able to land it unfortunately.  Billy clearly knows the seas well and was able to find the fish (other boats came in after we started catching the skipjack).  Billy and his crew were expert, hospitable and friendly.  Thanks again!

Good boat. With good equipment. Captain Billy and his assistant Jerom have excellent skills and they are really like fishing. We catch one yellow fin tuna and the Black Marlin. My dream came true!

Fished 5 hrs with Billy and his crew after taking a cab from our cruise ship in Port Louis.  Billy met me at the beach and we were off for a morning that consisted of some initial jigging over a near-shore wreck, followed by off-shore trolling (although relatively close to shore due to the huge drop off very close to the SW coast).  The captain was very accommodating in letting me use one of my outfits for jigging and trolling for smaller pelagics.  The mate used couple of the skipjacks to troll for marlin.  Although the marlin failed to show, we hooked and caught a good sized yellowfin tuna.  All-in-all, a great morning with a fun and experience crew.  Highly recommend them!
