Maranatha Sport Fishing

Le Morne
Le Morne, Mauritius

Maranatha is a 40’ Berger boat that was restored in 2015, and is powered by twin Ford Lemand 135HP engines. The vessel sports a spacious and comfortable double cabin, a capacious sun deck, an elegant interior seating area as well as a platform in the back. There’s an icebox for food and drinks and a large restaurant-like table. Maranatha has access to fresh water, as well as a private restroom.

As for equipment on board, Maranatha is outfitted with a GPS, sounder, radio and CD player, as well as a variety of security equipment, including life jackets, life belt, first aid kit and a fire extinguisher. For fishing, the boat uses Penn International reels (3x 130lbs, 3x 80lbs, 2x 50lbs), and utilizes a range of big game lures. A fighting chair, outriggers, downriggers, and a center rigger, as well as snorkeling equipment, can also be found among the boat’s amenities.

The offshore grounds off the Mauritian coast are abundant with game fish virtually all year round, including species such as Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna, Dorado, Sailfish and more. The trips usually start between 6 and 8 a.m. Thanks to the island’s positioning, you get to start fishing about 5 minutes outside of the lagoon. The lines get wet, as the crew puts out lures of different colors and sizes and sets the brakes off the reels. Trips include the use of high-quality fishing gear, live bait, lures, fishing licenses, soft drinks and mineral water.

Рыбачили в очень не простых условиях при сильном ветре и большой волне. В районе Мадагаскара развивался ураган 2 степени. Крылья урагана задевают Маврикий. Прошли за день толлингом около 100 км. Нашли мелкого тунца, наловили, сделали снасти на мертвую рыбу, пошли искать Марлина или акулу. К сожалению, не нашли. Но это ж рыбалка, не в магазин за рыбой пришли.
Лодка оснащена, с моей точки зрения, идеально. Есть все, что можно придумать для рыбалки в этих водах. Набор приманок - огромный.
Команда - капитан и его сын. Капитану в районе 50 лет, управлял лодкой идеально, за день, пожалуй, ни разу не подставил борт под более или мене серьезную волну. Несмотря на скромный улов, твёрдые 5* и мои рекомендации.

The boat and crew were awesome. I have a disability and carry an Oxygen machine the crew and capt were very accommodating to our needs. My wife has never fished before, she really enjoyed the experience as the crew took time to teach her. They told us exactly what they were doing and explaning why. I have been on other fishing trip were the crew just stay quite until you hook sometging. We saw humpback whales and to top the amazing day we caught 17 tuna’s.
