Big game fishing in Mauritius
Big game fishing in Mauritius dates from 1960 when big game fishermen decide to create the “Morne Anglers Club”, which still exists today. The club has already achieved a lot of world records. The island is famous for its abundant marine life, with large fish. Since the creation of the club, visitors and service providers have traveled through Mauritian waters in search of a beautiful blue marlin. You can boast of having achieved a feat when the fish exceeds 450 kg. A feat because sometimes it takes hours to get hold of this gigantic fish. Even the most experienced sometimes have difficulties, but that’s part of the game.
The Blue Marlin
The Blue Marlin is the most popular catch for big game anglers because it is hard to catch. Perseverance and good physical condition are required to capture it. With a length of 4 meters, it can weigh up to 820 kg for females. For males, they weigh up to 160 kg. Powerful, this fish does not let itself be easily caught. It is precisely for this reason that it is very much in demand by sport fishing enthusiasts. If you wish to try your luck during your stay in Mauritius, the Mauritian sea welcomes you with open arms.
