Additional Information

The Island of Rodrigues is home to some of the best Jig fishing in the world and it is no wonder so many anglers fish here with the biggest Dogtooth Tuna available on the planet. These supercharged fish will entertain anglers looking for the best jigging destination in the world. 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.

Our liveaboard boat at Rodrigues Island will take you out to the Hawkins Bank for an extreme adventure chasing down huge Dogtooth Tuna and Yellowfin Tuna like you have never seen before. The best method for Dogtooth tuna is jigging or bait fishing when out at Hawkins Bank and if this gets too much then the live-aboard boat will troll either baits or lures. When trolling at Rodrigues Island you will also catch Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado and Wahoo which are classed as the fastest fish in the ocean. The Indian Ocean offers some of the best big game fishing and will always provide the Big Game angler with lots of opportunities that will keep them busy for hours. The best fishing tackle for Jigging is explained in our blogs and also the best saltwater clothing is also described.
