When it comes to big game fishing in Mauritius, Blue Marlin is the ultimate trophy. Anglers reportedly catch “Grander” (1,000+ lb) Blues here every year, with the all time Mauritian record for Blue Marlin standing at 1,355 lb. When you’re not targeting this behemoth, you can enjoy good sport fishing for Black Marlin, as well.

When to Target Marlin

Anglers can enjoy Marlin fishing in Mauritius any time of year. Summer lasts from November to April, and this is the ideal time for targeting Blue Marlin. While you can find Blues biting as early as September, they are most prevalent from December through March. Meanwhile, Black Marlin are most active in winter, with a peak season between May and November.

How to Target Marlin

The most common method for Marlin is trolling with heavy tackle. Many fishermen find slow trolling live baits to be effective, though some prefer to use lures.

Don´t expect to catch always Blue Marlen, we got a 21.3 kg Giant Trevallor and it was picked up for Restaurant after taking Picture. The Ocean has many surprises and this is what you should looking for. Perhaps the list of fishes to be cought there should be Extended after that catch.

Book this trip! Excellent service from a very nice, friendly and professional father and son! They know their fishing, even I as an amateur can tell that. Next time we are in Mauritius we will go with them again.

Not so many or the big fish round at this time , so a simpler, nearshore trip with plenty of variety was perfect
An extended day
Eduard J. fished with Fishing Master on July 9, 2019
Check with the captain about keeping the catch or not. If you want to keep the catch you will probably have to pay for it. Bad practice, but common in Mauritius.
Full day with captain Kevin
Paul D. fished with Coeur De Lion on May 24, 2019
The skipper (Kevin) and crew are friendly and try everything to put you in the fish. All of the equipment is top of the line and looked after. The boat is fast to get you to your locations quicker and has everything on it you need for an enjoyable day out.
