31 Oct The Mauritius Billfish Tournament 2018: to your hooks, ready, cast!
Why are fishermen not fat? It’s because they watch their (waist) line!
After a remarkable third edition and records set at all levels, the Mauritius Billfish Tournament 2018 promises to be exceptional. The international tournament bringing together enthusiasts and professionals of big game fishing will take place from 26 to 30 January 2018 in La Balise Marina, on the west coast of Mauritius.
Fishermen are well aware, the best time for big game fishing in Mauritius is from November to April. At this specific time of year, blue and black marlins, mako sharks, tiger sharks, yellowfin tuna and many other exciting marine species are in abundance a few kilometers from the shore.
Organised by JPH Charters and LUX* Resorts, this year the Mauritius Billfish Tournament will be supported by Horizon Holidays, leader of serviced holiday rentals in the heart of the marina. During this event, participants who wish to stay in one of the West Coast Marina accommodations near the departure points will receive exclusive discounts.
The previous edition of the Mauritius Billfish Tournament, held from 26 to 31 January last year, marked the exceptional participation of 56 fishermen from around the globe which resulted in a record of 28 marlins catches! The Mauritius Billfish Release 2017 was won by the Russian crew, Vivax led by Evgeny Novozheev, ahead of Les Bourbonnais de La Réunion, and Mantra of South Africa. The Russian captain retained his individual title by consecutively winning the accolade of best fisherman.
