Marlin (Blue) Fishing in Mauritius

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.

"Top knotch operation "

Mike Miltenburg fished with Hooker 1 on January 9, 2020

J.P and his crew are very professional and efficient, and friendly. We did 2 full days trolling for Marlin and I have fished all over the world. The operation they provide is 2nd to none and I highly recommend!!

"Full day trip "

Tomas Luksas fished with Club 1034 – Lady Diana on January 17, 2020

We had a great day's fishing. The boat was well equipped, the captain did everything to ensure we followed the fish and got a great catch.. Unfortunately we didnt see any Marlin but we did catch a couple of decent sized Bonita, and 11 Yellowfin Tuna one of which weighed in at 43kg was amazing to land. The trip was easy to organise and we would 100% recommend it for a great days fishing.

Hannes Myburgh fished with Aquila Fishing Mauritius on December 30, 2018

My son and I had a great time. Friendly and very helpful crew. It was our first time out Game Fishing and it makes all the difference when you have experienced crew to help and guide you what you need to know. We caught some nice Durado. Not our day for Marlin but we’ll be back to try again.
