In conjunction with our Madagascan partners, Nirvana Fishing, we have put together another very exciting adventure that will satisfy the most keenest of lure angler and with excellent chances for extreme jigging and casting lures. Explore the huge offshore bench with such fish as Dogtooth Tuna, GT’s and pelagics like Sailfish, Yellow Fin Tuna.Dorado, Wahoo and even Black Marlin. We are very excited about this destination, as the fishing off Nosy Be is very much untapped and just waiting for you to chance your arm at landing one of the islands gems.
40 km north-west of the island of Nosy Be, discover the fabulous Leven bench, which covers an area of about 2500 km² and is by far the largest offshore bank of Madagascar. In connection with the auxiliary benches of the Great Beaver in the South, the Voltigeur in the South-West and the Cordelier in the North, it forms a base of volcanic origin, 90 km long and 15 to 30 km wide, appearing as a vast mass tabular with cut out contours. A gigantic playground whose surface is swollen by up rises up to 15 meters deep, where many coral formations develop.
In popping mode, superb possibilities (still largely unexploited) are offered to you to provoke the GT, Blue Fin Trevallies, Dogtooth Tuna and other fierce opponents. With regards to jigging, you can explore the slopes and tops of the bench where anything awaits you but especially the furious “doggies” (Dogtooth Tuna), which will beat you up and spit you out. Not to mention pelagic fish of all kinds. The Leven bench is probably one of the best spots in the world for Dogtooth Tuna, reaching their maximum sizes with GT’s over 100LB and Dogtooth Tuna reaching the magical 200LB The same with our other Madagascar holidays, we will be using one of stunning Catamarans, we have a variety on offer and will be assigned dependant on group size, which are the perfect base for living and dining from. We know how important it is that you can sleep and rest in the best conditions especially after an intense days fishing and that’s why our Catamarans have been selected for their quality and comfort of the sleeping cabins. There are also great relaxation areas, either in the lounge with sofas or on deck (sun deck) to enjoy the great outdoors, basking in the sun, watch the magnificent starry sky of Madagascar or prepare your fishing arrangements. The actual boats you will be fishing from follow the Catamaran out to the fishing grounds. They are very functional, comfortable, equipped with unparalleled safety equipment and are top quality boats (10.30 metre fiberglass shell, central console, engines 2 x 250 HP, equipped with high-tech electronics, with a cabin with WC, washbasin and shower), accommodating up to 4 fishermen and able to navigate with ease by seas, unequalled performance (top speed of 45 knots !) simply the best extreme fishing boats available at Madagascar.
