Pointe Aux Piments / Balaclava, Mau…

For a great day out on the water and a catch to remember, choose Mautiyak Game Fishing in Mauritius. Your captain Ludovic Angeline is a veteran angler and an ex IGFA Captain. Drawing on 17 years of experience, he is prepared to help you target almost anything that is biting in these waters. Join him and experience the big game fishing that Mauritius is famous for!

Welcome aboard “Popeye,” a 32’ Cabin Cruiser powered by twin 85 HP Perkins engines. This vessel is fitted with a flybridge, outriggers, and a fighting chair. Passengers can enjoy the boat’s spacious deck and living space, a bedroom, kitchen, and toilet. There is even a grill on board, where the crew prepares lunch on special full day excursions.

The waters of Mauritius are well-known for deep sea hotspots and abundant fishing seasons. While fishing with Capt. Ludovic you are likely to stay along the Mauritian west coast, where the waters are known to host especially large pelagic fish.

Here you can target Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Giant Trevally, and Tuna. You will mainly target your catch by trolling, but you will also have the option to try your hand at jigging and drop shot fishing. You can also bottom fish for Snapper, Grouper, Needlefish, and more.

Capt. Ludovic offers a variety of trips, including a full day excursion with fishing, snorkeling, dolphin watching, and an onboard BBQ. The crew will prepare sausage, chicken, or fish, along with salad and dessert. Water, soft drinks, and beer are provided (and rum upon request).

Mautiyak Game Fishing provides Penn and Shimano fishing gear, lures, and bait. Fish caught during your trip goes to the crew, but you may request to take one home to enjoy as a meal.

Come aboard today and enjoy the endless opportunities these waters have to offer!

Nice trip with helpful captain but no fish. Cannot valuate quality of guiding, because i am not experienced in deep see fishing. Other boats catched fish but very little. My opinion: even in indian ocean you need a portion of luck or more time and money to try again

We fished with Popeye for a half day of fishing.  The Captain spent too long on fishing in a very windy and rough sea.  He should have changed to trolling in calmer seas.  The boat was OK but the equipment was not good and out of date.  The crew was lazy and did very little.

No fish, no bites, no service.  Not recommended.

I understand that some people are happy, and others not, specially when back empty handed..  This is not a reason for not recommending us.
I just tried my best to bring you as close as possible to your targeted fish. And i can’t help it if they didn’t want to bite.
I know that not all my reels are brand new, but they are very well maintain, and i never use my lines more than six months after being changed.
Of course trolling to the wanted spot is the laziest way of catching fish, but as far as i can remember we got one bite 20mins before getting back to port.  But even before starting fight, fish was gone already..  Not my fault..
If a client is not happy about the service, why giving tips and rating with 2 stars the crew and fishing?

From my side, i found we had a good discussion and relationship onboard.

Looking forward to see you maybe another time with more luck.

Although we had a tough day on the water with only two fish caught, I would happily go out again with Capt. Ludovic and his crew member Ken. They covered a lot of water and were constantly changing lures in an effort to entice fish. We also tried jigging in certain areas but with little success. But that’s fishing, no guarantees, but still a good day.
What has been extra top class is the service and follow up by great communication and follow up. I will definitely use these guys again!!
