Maranatha Sport Fishing

Visit the productive fishing grounds around the beautiful island of Mauritius with Maranatha Sport Fishing! Captain Antonio Lamarque and his crew are all passionate anglers with years of experience under their belt. They’ll make sure to maximize your time on the water, so you’re bound to have a successful trip.

Explore these waters on Maranatha – a 40’ Berger offshore sportfishing boat restored in 2020. It’s powered by twin 160 HP Yanmar engines, and it’s a safe, fast, and comfortable ride to the fishing grounds. Maranatha has access to fresh water, as well as a private restroom. The boat can comfortably fit up to 8 people, so take your friends and family on a fishing expedition!

Capt. Antonio will provide all the fishing gear that you’ll need – Penn International rods and reels, as well as a range of big game lures and live bait. 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 all year round, including species such as Marlin, Barracuda, Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Spearfish, and Shark. The waters get pretty deep as soon as you leave the dock, so you get to start fishing in about 5 minutes outside of the lagoon.

Don’t hesitate to bring your kids, and make this a vacation activity they’ll always remember! The crew will provide you with soft drinks and mineral water, just bring some snacks and sun protection, and you’re all set.

Join Maranatha Sport Fishing as they take you on an adventure of a lifetime fishing the blue waters of Mauritius!

3 mahimahi and 2 young bonitoes
3 mahimahi and 2 young bonitoes
May 15, 2022
As we put the 3rd line out. A small mackrel was on then another one. We caught both and few minutes after we had a strike on the 130 pounds line which was fixed to the central rigger. Unfortunately the hook went out. We supposed it was a big wahoo. We continued our way to the deeper waters to locate the schools of skipjacks or doradoes. After an hour out we spotted a school of bonito. We went through the school few times but no bite so we decided to go to a spot were we usually catch doradoes. Arriving there...no sign of life so we decided another route and bang a 15 pounds dorado jumped out of the water and took our lure. After some fight the fish was in. We continued a bit more south and saw a school of dorado...3 or 4 coming on the lines at the same time. 2 were hooked . We were back after 5hrs of fishing with 3 nice Doradoes and 2 mackerel bonito
2 mahimahi and 5 bonitoes after 4hrs out

We went out at 8 a.m . Few minutes after setting the line out we hooked a dorado on the short rigger line. An hour later we started catching bonitoes in a big school. On the way back we caught another Dorado. We were on the lagoon at noon with 2 doradoes and 5 bonitoes.
Nice catch near Le Morne

Just after putting the second line in the water we hooked and caught a rainbow runner fish. An hour later we saw a school of dorado. A dorado came on the line bit twice but unfortunately no hook up. We continued and saw few schools of dorado but it seems that they did not want to bit today. Later we had a double strike on doradoes. One of them the hook went off and we caught the 2nd one. We then saw a big school of bonitoes but no bite. In the way back we caught 4 mackerel bonito.
