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!

I had booked this fishing trip online before we came to Mauritius, all of the booking went very smoothly and Billy was very good at communicating via email, we got picked up on time and headed out on quite a choppy sea in our search for fish, within about an hour I had a hook up and after a 30 min battle landed a blue marlin about 150lb it was my first ever marlin so I was extremely happy. We then trolled a bit more and managed to catch a wahoo. Then as my partner was feeling not 100% we went in to some more sheltered water where Billy pointed out a mark where we could maybe catch some dorado, I was very happy about this as I have not caught a dorado before, as soon as the baits were dropped down we had dorado on the line and at one time a double hook up, fantastic !!
We picked up a bonus dorado and 3 small tuna before I said to Billy I was completely happy with what fishing I had done but could we return as my partner was not feeling too well, so we returned after about 6 hours with 3 tuna, 4 Dorado,2 Wahoo and a Blue marlin, WOW this man Billy Lamarque certainly knows his stuff, I cannot wait to return and book his boat again
Thank you so much Billy for a wonderful wedding present !!
