Fishing equipment and tackle:
  • FISHING On the coastal shelf of the Islands to catch these types of fish as bonefish, milkfish, permit, trevally, and many others. From boats caught yellowfin and sobucesuyu tuna, Dorado, Barracuda, jobfish (Aprion)and even a sailboat. Used fishing rods 9-12 class.
  • CASTING - fishing with poppers are used rods with a length of 3-4 meters with the test 200-300 grams coil type Shimano Stella 20000 SW, sea 80-100 lb braid, preferably with colour markings. Poppers are cheaper to buy in Mauritius.
  • JIGGING - jig required a special rod with a test of 200-400 grams. Coil type Shimano Stella 20000 SW with sea 80-100 lb braid. Bait 150-350 gr. (you can buy in Mauritius).
  • TROLLING - "Mopping up" the boat of waters with special fishing-rods (from 4 to 8), artificial and live baits. The boat moves with a minimum speed along the drop off. While fishing the bait is lowered in half-waters or at the bottom and held there with a suitable sinker, or by the maneuvers of the boat. At night this technique is well-known for catching sharks.
The ocean is rich in fish everywhere, except the southern direction of the island. Trophy deep sea fishing is conducted in depths of about 70m.
Separately want to mention the fishing on the plateau of Sudan (Soudan Bank) is a seamount with a summit at a depth of about 50 meters (25 meters at the highest point), on the border of the plateau there is a drop off of up to three kilometers. The plateau is located at a distance of 180 kilometers from Mauritius. Due to the large distance from populated areas and the bottom relief plateau, Sudan is considered an ideal for catching such fish as blue and black Marlin, Wahoo, yellowfin tuna and sobucesuyu. Each boat catches about an average of 200 kg of fish per day.
The transition to the plateau takes about 12 hours. We use for this fishing, the Bertram 390. The boat goes from Mauritius to 5-6 PM, and after a night journey, the early morning starts fishing. Back the boat also goes out in the evening to the morning to be in Mauritius.
