Where is the best fishing around Mauritius?
Hawkins Bank is the main area where the big ones live but the fishing around Rodrigues Island is equally as good but the Dogtooth Tuna are smaller. The GT fishing is excellent around the Island with many Giant Trevally being caught on poppers ranging from 10kg to 40kg. The Geet fishing around Mauritius is pretty special and the boat will only have to go a short distance to find some of the best drop-offs for the Giant Trevally.
