Member since December 2013

Trou Aux Biches, Mauritius

Background
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 1.st Mate Bruno Rencier, they're working hand in hand
Techniques
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.

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!

The trip over all was nice, weather was a bit rough with rain. We got a 10 kg bonito. Have expected few more to catch But weather was not really in our favor. Would go again with the same crew really nice friendly experienced crew.
