Was picked up at 5 in the morning by Cpt. Patrice and James. We spent the day trolling between two buoys and fishing around them. Caught a small tuna and small dorado and my first blue marlin with 68kg. Patrice and James were very professional, would definitely go out with them again.
The boat and equipment is very good.

Tough morning at sea with only 1 bite we lost- captain said it was a dorado. Next time maybe we will be luckier.

We had an amazing trip
We caught 6 yellowfin tuna
And two Marlin !!!
Both Patrice and Simon were truly first class in both knowledge and enthusiasm
Caught both Marlin on a 50lb rig which was great fun!
So all together a truly fantastic trip and I would thoroughly recommend booking the barracuda with Patrice and Simon

Absolutely superb mornings fishing, just what I wanted.  Pat and his mate were excellent throughout.  Trip started slowly at one of the fish aggregating devices and as soon as it was clear there was nothing there we went to another one.  Hooked but lost a marlin on the way but soon had a skipjack tuna.  When we arrived at the second device dorados were around and although I didn’t hook any I had a great time reeling in the ones the mate had hooked.  I spent so much time reeling them in that was why I probably didn’t hook one myself.  Nice 15kg bonito on the way home.  Good boat that holds 8 but probably 4 would be enough in choppy conditions.  Overall I would book Pat again if I had a spare day or were to return to Mauritius.

Hi Nicolas,
I’m very happy you appreciate this trip,look forward seeing you again,enjoy a max,
wish you all the very best.

This was an absolutely superb trip.  It started slowly but once it was clear there was nothing at the first fish aggregrating device we moved to another one.  Lost a marlin on the way and then has a skipjack tuna before running into the dorados.  Didn’t actually hook one myself but that was probably because I spent most of the time reeling in the ones the mate had hooked. They were not huge (up to about 6kgs) but it was FUN!  Nice 15kg bonito on the way home.  This is ideal for the inexperienced, not so inexperienced or even expert game fisherman given the marlin season has not really started.  The boat holds 8 but on a choppy day 4 would be enough.  The skipper Pat was excellent and from when I booked the trip to getting off the boat everything went really well and all communications were superb.  I would use Baracuda again if I can back to Mauritius or managed to find a spare day on this trip.  I don’t think I’ve had a better value for money trip anywhere else in the world,  even in my own boat!

The crew was polite, professional and competent, the fishing equipment was up to date. Patrice worked hard to get the fish biting and even extended the trip in search if fish. We caught a nice 4kg bonito and had other 3 on the hook that got away. Sea was a bit rough further off the coast, but overall good experience!
