Great 2 days caught some small tuna and a wahoo but crew worked hard to try for a hook up.
Only rose 1 marlin but no hook ups. Fish caught on other boats up to 1100 lbs. Great skipper very Knowledgeable .

Have just returned from Mauritius , whilst there i booked 2 days deep sea fishing on Billy Lamarque’s boat Billfish,we went out on 4th dec and caught dorado and skipjack tuna,the crew used some of the tuna for live bait,Billy explained all about the lures and fishing methods used throughout the day,we were impressed enough to book another day,a few hours into the trip the line on the outrigger came off with a bang and the reel started screamng,i jumped into the fighting chair and half a hour later had boated a 150lb blue Marlin,ive been waiting over 30 years to do this and Billy got me one on my 2nd attempt! later we got a fair sized yellow fin tuna too,professional boat crew who are always trying different methods throughout the day to catch fish,highly recommend these guys.

Great fishing day with Billy and his brother Jerome. They came to pick my girlfriend and me to the hotel with a little boat and we jumped into the real boat. Excellente equipment and the boat was v clean. The skipper Billy very knowleagble and very keen to explain everything to us as we were new into fishing. Jerome an expert with different tricks to try to catch something big. We went in Mid August with the water temperature lf 23 degrees. Usually much easier to catch a marlin when the temperature is around 29 (summer season). We had a 8h johrney and we had action during 30 mimutes where we catched 8 dorados (inc a 10kg one) and 4 bonitos that we used them to attract big fishes without luck. 3 days befores they catched a hammer shark (150kg!!). Le Morne is a great spot to catch big fishes. We will come back for sure and will call Billy again!. Thanks guys for arranging such a good experience. Alberto and Celia.
