Small Game Fishing in Mauritius with Captain Vic
Come and try a finer method of fishing, with fish that are just as combative!
In Winter, from April to september, we can target smaller fish. Using light tackle, we can catch YellowFin Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, Wahoo and Dorado.
Don't get me wrong, these fish are powerful, and our equipment is too, guarantying a good fight.
We use different techniques and spots, sometimes close to the reef and sometimes in the deep sea, depending on the season and the fish we are looking for. Trolling with artificial lures on the surface or deeper with the downrigger, casting with popper and jigging.
Whether you are an experienced Fisherman or a beginner, you will enjoy it for sure.
Good way to initiate children to fishing. We use proper equipment for smaller fish, so your children can learn safely and enjoy a good time with you !
A good surprise, we always bring a big fishing rod in case if a marlin show up.
