Big Game Fishing in Mauritius with Captain Vic
Mauritius is THE destination for Big Game Fishing!
Mauritius is among the most prized destinations for Big Game Fishing in the world, with many fishing Records, including the largest Blue Marlin on 80lbs test line.
Located in the heart of the Indian Ocean, large predators like Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and more species are present all the year.
On our Big Game Fishing trip, we are mainly looking for fish like Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Yellow Fin Tuna, Wahoo and Dorado.
We principally troll with artificial lures at high speed and fresh bait like small Tuna as livebait or deadbait.
We are located in the best place for fishing on the west coast of the island between Port Louis and le Morne Brabant.

Catch and Release for small Billfish
- The Blue Marlin is present during Summer in Mauritius. Marlin prefer warm water and follow hot currents.
The international IGFA world record on 130lbs line test is 1376lbs, the Mauritian record is 1355 lbs.
Mauritius still has the world record on 80lbs test line, 1270lbs !
- The Black Marlin is found year round in Mauritius, but more common in winter.
From 100 lbs to 1560 lbs, the Mauritian record is 794 lbs.
We also can catch smaller bill fish such as Sailfish, Stripped Marlin and Spearfish.
We use the same technique to catch these species, trolling between 7 and 10 knots with artificial bait or trolling slower using livebait and deadbait.
For Tuna, we will target one species during our Big Game Fishing trip.
The Big Yellowfin Tuna which is present during the Mauritian summer.
From 100 lbs to 212lbs which is the Mauritian record - the world record is 427lbs!
A very strong fighting fish, we mainly use artifical bait, using the downrigger or on the surface.
Tuna travel in a shoal, so we often catch several during our trips.
