The crew’s top priority is to put the customers on fish and make sure they have an outstanding experience on the Mauritian waters.

Located on the island’s northwest and acknowledged as one of the world’s most beautiful beaches back in 2011, Trou aux Biches is a tourist village.

Who needs navigation systems when you have Alaine!?
We set off trolling in the pitch black before sun rise to get to the spot first and it certainly paid off! Before we had even finished 1 full lap of the FAD off went the rod with our diving lure on- a decent yellow fin around 15kg for our efforts.
Alaine had caught live bait the night before in preparation for our trip so we had the best chance of presenting a good bait to the tuna and dorado we were targetting. After an hour or so off went another rod we had the live bait on but unfortunately this time the line snapped and we were unlucky, Joe the gaff man thought it was a better size Tuna.
The next couple of hours we kept 3 rods on live bait and 1 on jigging a rubber lure, there were 4 more boats around but all was quite and we were the only boat to catch anything. Around 9am without warning off went the live bait rod again which had been weighted to the bottom, we were in to another tuna. There was a very decent fight on the light rod and reel and it took nearly 20 mins to pull in the yellow fin which actually turned out to be smaller than the first. A short while later the tuna came to the surface to feed and were even jumping chasing the bait fish, Joe spotted a large yellow fin but still no other boats were catching!
By 10am we decided to call it a day- happy with our catch we set the trolling rod and headed back to shore.
Overall a great trip on a good tratitional boat with a great crew. It was my dads first sea fishing trip and he loved it, we both can’t wait to go again.
Best of luck until next time.
