Jerome Douce is the captain of Le Dodo, a highly skilled angler with wealth of knowledge when it comes to fishing the productive waters of Mauritius. In the recent years, that vast experience has helped Jerome develop somewhat of a 'sixth sense' for locating fish quickly and effectively - just ask our previous customers! Together with his right hand on deck, our Mate Bruno Rencier, they're working hand in hand
The preffered style of fishing is trolling to catch the Predators of the Indian Ocean, but jigging and popping around the northern Islands is successful as well.

5 hours, 1 bite that we lost, disappointed but beautiful day on water. I understand it’s the winter / off-season but having nothing happen over 5 hours was disappointing.

The team was friendly but were pretty quiet and didn’t really interact with us. They seemed rushed to cover area.

Seeing the whales was our highlight.

5 Dorado, 15 tuna during 4 hours - everything was perfect! Professional and confident team, maybe not enough communicative, but the main thing is trophies I think.

Hi Sergey,
thanks for your great report

Went fishing on Wednesday, March 21, 2018

It was a very successful fishing day. Jerome and Bruno, both very experienced fishermen. Have Bonitos caught in TOP weather. Unfortunately, my wife was not so well, so I stopped the trip after 3.5 hours. I would have liked to try to land a larger fish. Despite everything a successful fishing trip. With this two Fischer, with good equipment and lures, one can only recommend. Maybe next year I’ll make another fishing trip with the DoDo.

I was fishing in many different countries of the world,but what happens on the
11th of january2018 was absolutly cracy.At 6.30h we start fishing up to the North.On the way we catch two small tunas.When we arrived the famous EMILIA BANK we got a massive Sailfish-triple hookup.With 9 lines in the water the chaos was perfect.But with the help of Jerome and Bruno we got all of them.
I shared the trip with a nice couple from poland.It was a perfect start for Lucas at his first offshore fishing trip ever.But it was not enough….
After one hour trolling we get the next Action.The result was a nice Blue Marlin.
-no time to celebrate,lures back in the water the Show must go on.
One hour later Lucas was in fight with his first Blue Marlin.After a hard fight we had our second Marlin in the boat.Now it was time to celebrate,we had a lot of fun.
I can highly recommend the Le Dodo-Team(Antoinette,Jerome,Bruno,Volker)
Thank you

Went fishing on Wednesday, December 20, 2017

The crew picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the boat. The boat was already prepared and was ready to go as soon as we arrived. The crew was changing lures all the time and always looking for signs of fish. After a while we got a few yellow fin tunas on the hook and the fishing was underway. It was very exciting! Then a marlin caught the lure and the fishing experiance went from very good to best of my life. The big marlin gave areal fight and the crew, Bruno (acted as my personal trainer) and Jerome steered the boat. After 1,5 hours we had landed the marlin! Bruno and Jerome was extremly professional and knew exactly what to do and guided me in every step. I can really recommend this trip. The service, the professionalism, the sixth senes of the crew made this a experiance of a lifetime! Thank you!

Went fishing on Thursday, December 1, 2016

The boat was very old and there excive vibrating by the engines which made us sick we are both good in rough conditions but we struggled to stand on the deck because it was vibrating that bad the kit was very old which did not matter really but my main gripe is I paid over 600 dollars and spent 3 hours troaling for tuna is that for our bennifit or the boats I booked to fish for Marlin not chasing flocks of birds for tuna. They took video and pictures I wish we had done that because that was another 60 dollars on top for a USB stick. A disappointing trip this was my third trip out in Mauritus fishing.

Went fishing on Thursday, May 12, 2016

Everything was perfect from start to finish. After the booking confirmation Mr Scheu was very helpful to organise things in advance and in Mauritius Antoinette was great in arranging the final détails, so I was 100% prepared for the day. The fishing trip was great. The boat is no-nonsense and outfitted for fishing. The crew (Captain Jérôme, Bruno and Michael) are great: very professional and really know their stuff (in particular spotting bird activity from far away and anticipating the movements). Also very friendly and engaging; for example they were more than happy to answer my endless questions about everything they were doing. And for an off-season day the catch was superb: 5 dorados (or dolphin or mahi-mahi) within a few hours, one of which was a very hard-fighting male and 4 out of 5 more than good size.
And one little detail that I wasn’t expecting: the go-pro on board and Michael’s expert photography produced a souvenir memory stick at a more than reasonable price.
I can’t wait to return.

- A bad day of fishing on “Le Dodo” is better than a good day of work !

Went fishing on Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Perfect time I’ve spent on this boat! I booked 9 full days with Captain Jerome and his brother. We went for marlins and mainly deep sea species. We caught three Blue Marlins and the 4th was luckier than us. :)
Every day we caught plenty Tunas and Mahi-Mahi every day. La Dodo was super clean and safe - just well maintained. I can say the jiggin around North. Islands was super successful but special was “round island”.

I highly recommend La Dodo, Capt. Jerome and his brother to anyone! See you soon guys. :)

Once more, thanks for this awesome experience!
