Trou Aux Biches, Mauritius

Background
Born in a fishing dynasty, fishing has always been present in my life. Having left school at the tender age of 16, I decided to focus fully on fishing to follow my father's steps. To help me achieve this, I decided to enroll in a local fishing course to become a registered fisherman on the island. This course allowed me to obtain not only a fishing licence but also a live bait licence for FAD fishing. At the same time, this has also allowed me to gain more expertise and know the numerous techniques of fishing. The reason why I chose to become a fisherman is to share my passion with others. Seeing the enjoyment of a beginner or an experienced angler hooking up gives me as much excitement as them. I have always adopted this hands-on approach as I am always present on all my fishing trips. I like to ensure that all my clients are always fully satisfied and maximize their chances of catching and to allow this, my presence is key. For me, fishing is not a passion. It is a way of life.

Easy booking, nice contact on the phone to arrange pick up at the beach in front of our hotel. Kevin recommended to start at 5:15 a.m. which was perfect! We got most fish between 6:30 and 8:30 during sunrise. We startetd with Tuna (12), followed by Dorade/ Mahi Mahi (7). The crew changed tackle and bait all the time accordingbto conditions. Excellent day, nice and highly engaged crew, delicious Sandwiches made by the captain! A must during you stay in Mauritius. I’ll be back in January for a Marlin! Cheers Carsten

We had a fantastic trip on board Coeur de Lion on 23rd April 2018.

Kevin visited us at our hotel a couple of days before the trip to organise timings and which day would be best weather wise. Luckily he was up to date with knowledge of the weather as a cyclone has just hit

Even though the weather wasnt great and it was fairly rough we had a great day fishing, 6 dorado caught which my husband was very happy about. He was disappointed not to catch a yellow fin tuna as was Captain Kevin but we were impressed to see how hard they tried to find us one.

Fantastic boat which handled the choppy seas fantastically and Kevein and his team were great.

Fantastic trip all around and we would happily reccomend this trip to anyone.

A great morning’s fishing for myself and my son. The crew was very professional and knew what they were doing. Pick up and drop off and service on board was very good and very efficient.  The fishing experience itself was probably one of the best I’ve had world-wide.  The fish were biting and our catch was great.  I have no hesitation in recommending Captain Kevin and his crew. A great morning, thank you!

Day started early 0400 AM, good thing cause then you’re at the fishing grounds in sunrise.
We started fishing for live bait, But the fish wasn’t biting. Captain Kevin and his crew really trues everything and worked the area.
The we started trolling for Marlin, and after e few hours on of the exciters bursted in large splash! Captain Kevin pushed the throttle, and up of the water jumped a large blue marlin. Unfortuneatly it didn’t take the bait. But the adrenaline sure started to pump!
We trolled a bit moore but the Marlin never came back.
Then we headed north for some Dorado. Captain Kevin and the crew showed their experience when they read the birds flyingpattern, and knew it was dorado.
The fishing was fantastic and we landed eight nice Dorados, they sure give you a fight!

Overall a perfect day, if the Marlin had taken the bait it could have been to perfect, especially since it was my first big game fishing trip

Dear Rob, thank you for your review. Although fishing was a bit difficult that day , we appreciate that you had a good day with us. It would have been a dream for us to make you land your first blue but it wasn’t case . The dorados made up for it . We hope to see you again for The big One.

This was a Fantastic day’s fishing I could not have asked for a better skipper on a boat. I have fished all over the world and this was the best all round fishing trip I have ever experienced. We set out at six in the morning and it took us over 1hr to get out to the fishing ground, we started using frozen Flying Fish as bait and we hooked up within 5 minutes a double hooker then we used live bait and the fish just went crazy for the bait we lost quite a few fish and shark took some but for the conditions of the sea we had a very good day out. I can’t thank the Captain and his crew for any more they did a great job !!! I will be using the Coeur De Lion again when I come back next year many thanks Dave.

Hello Mr David,
Hope you are well. We are delighted that you had a great trip. To hear you say that this was one of the best fishing trips you experienced worldwide really means a lot to us. This is what we always strive for and hearing this brings us joy. Our secret weapon did work that day with some nice sized dorados caught.
We absolutely hope to see you again and it would be an absolute pleasure to see you again and hopefully this time go for the big one.
Kind Regards,

Excellent communication from the instant that I booked my trip ex Cape Town South Africa. Having searched “Best fishing days” Mauritius I requested a trip date change from Tues 26/09 & was accomodated on Sunday 24/09 rated as a level 3 fishing day. (Level 4 is BEST & level 1 “worst case scenario”) Collection from hotel was suggested for 05h00 instead of 07h00 which I readily accepted as it meant arriving at our fishing point just after sunrise, giving the best possible chance of a catch. Cour de Lion’ 2 man crew: Michael & Jonathan are extremely helpful, knowledgeable & had a phenomenal work ethic. By 10h00 we had landed 9 Dorados varying from 6 >11kgs, I had my “BEST FISHING DAY” a Mauritian experience that I will treasure forever. To Capt Kevin & crew “THANK YOU” team for your passion & a FV that is visibly top class & well maintained. Highly recommend booking this FV - Dennis Parsons South Africa

Thank you so much Mr Dennis for those kind words. It was a pleasure for myself capt Kevin and the crew to have you on board for one of the half day trips. We fully enjoyed your company and we probably had as much fun as you did with those dorados.
P.S next time you have a beer, think about us.

Great day, good boat and crew. Took us to targeted spots and onto Bonitto and tuna straight away. Only 1 good Dorado but made the trip for us. Very professional setup. Would recommend trying jigging by yourself on trip!

This was an excellent trip but be prepared for an early (4am) start.  The boat’s engines enable it to get as far away from the jetty as required.  We went 18 miles and arrived at a FAD at day break.  The captain and crew did everything to find the fish and I had some fun with some nice sized dorado. Captain Kevin and his crew were superb throughout the morning and even when the fish were not biting it was a great time.  I would recommend this trip and would book up again if I had more time in Mauritius or if I was come back.
