Killing Time Before Fishing in Mauritius

Scott, Ben and I spent yesterday and today touring around the small island nation of Mauritius here in the boonies of the Indian Ocean.  We’re killing time before we head fishing to St. Brandon’s Atoll.  It’s been a fun two days meeting the welcoming people of Mauritius, checking out markets, beaches, beer drinking and good food but now we’re ready to “Let the games begin”.




Unfortunately, the games still won’t begin until Tuesday afternoon.  This is because we have a 28-hour boat ride that still separates us from St Brandon’s.  This boat ride begins tomorrow morning at 11:30 AM.  The ride has a reputation of being brutal due to high seas and wind.  We’ll see.  I think most of the brutal part comes from waiting another day to start fishing.


This may be my last post until the trip is over because we won’t have internet.  This trip to St Brandon’s is what they call an “Extended Trip”.  We will not be back to civilization until April 21st.  HELL YEA!  But not to worry, as usual I will document every day and every cool fish from this trip and share the day by day accounts when I return.


Although this may seem like an unobtainable adventure – actually it isn’t.  Feel free to Contact Me and you can book this incredible trip to St Brandon’s with us at Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures.

    Looking forward to seeing all the pics from your adventure buddy. Have fun and why did you choose St Brandons over other islands in the Seychelles (not they’re all not outstanding) just curious if it’s species, etc?? My bucket list trip is that area.

    Mark Cooper, I chose this St Brandons first because I haven’t been and was invited by my South African friends to check it out. The place is also known for its cooler water and in turn more large bonefish and heaps of Indo Pacific Permit. Although close, Mauritius is 1000 miles away from the Seychelles and its own nation. Heading off right now!! Stoke!!
