Additional Information

What type of fishing is available on Rodrigues Island?

Rodrigues Island Fishing 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. The inshore fishing is more suited to popper fishing in Mauritius and the size of GT’s around the island is very impressive. We can also do bottom bait fishing at Rodrigues where you will catch all manner of Groupers and Snappers and Coral Trout

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.

What Species can I catch on Rodrigues Island?

Rodrigues Island fishing offers a huge array of species from the inshore fishing for GT’s and smaller Dogtooth Tuna to the amazing offshore fishing targeting Dogtooth Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Sharks and so much more. Simply lower some bait to the bottom and you will catch lots of Groupers and snappers.
