Best Deep Sea Fishing Charters in Mauritius


Deep Sea Fishing in Mauritius

Try deep sea fishing Mauritius once and you will be hooked forever. These waters are home to world renowned big game trophies such as Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Black Marlin and the ultimate prize: Blue Marlin. Every angler has a chance to set a new record here, trolling just 5km (barely more than three miles) from shore.

What to Catch and When to Target it

You can enjoy excellent fishing in Mauritius all year, but the best time to target big game fish runs from October to April. These summer months produce ideal conditions for Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, and large Shark species. If it’s the coveted Blue Marlin you’re after, chances of landing this catch are highest from December through March. On the other hand, you will find Black Marlin biting the most in winter, from May to November.

How to Fish

Deep sea fishing in Mauritius mostly involves trolling with heavy tackle. Anglers use live bait, artificial bait, and rapalas, depending on their target species. Some fishermen prefer trolling with live bait such as Bonito or young Tuna when targeting Marlin, Dogtooth Tuna, and Sharks. You can use rapalas while fishing for Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, and Barracuda. Jigging is also effective when targeting Mahi Mahi and some other species.

The best big game fishing Mauritius has to offer can be found near Black River in the West, Trou D’Eau Douce in the East, Grand Bay in the North, Grand River in the South, and Le Morne in the Southwest.
