La Rochelle Fishing Charters

La Rochelle Fishing Charters is located in Trou Aux Biches, Mauritius. If you want to explore the aquatic opportunities of the Indian Ocean, you have found the right place.

Trou Aux Biches is a tourist village on the island’s northwest, acknowledged as one of the world’s most beautiful beaches back in 2011. Generations have been inspired by the marine potential of the area, so it’s no wonder that fishing is the village’s main activity. Trou Aux Biches is famous for its white sands, the biodiverse blue lagoon, as well as colorful bungalows and hotels along its coast.

La Rochelle Fishing Charters is a team of professional fishermen with a lifelong passion for the ocean. When it comes to fishing techniques utilized, the La Rochelle crew are very experienced in big game fishing but are also happy to do bottom fishing, drift fishing using live bait, jigging, and even surfcasting.

The crew’s top priority is to put you on fish and make sure you have an outstanding experience on the Mauritian waters. They will take you fishing for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Bigeye Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, and who knows what else?

You will be fishing aboard the La Rochelle. She is a 26’ game fishing boat, powered by twin 70 HP Suzuki engines. Navigation-wise, La Rochelle is equipped with a GPS, sounder/plotter as well as a VHS radio. As far as the fishing tackle is concerned, fishing gear that can be found on board is as follows: Penn 130 and 80, Shimano Tiagra 30, and Penn 10500.

Boat departure times are flexible and can be negotiated upon booking. Your trip will include the use of rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures. When you return to shore, you can taste your catch.
