Fishing Experience at St.Brandon
St. Brandon is a true fishing heaven!
When fishing at St. Brandon you are sure to target various species and to have a once in a life time fishing experience.
It is going to be the most spectacular bonefishing experience you will ever encounter! Most tides anglers can expect to see shoals of these shallow water speedsters. Over the past season we have landed Bonefish of up to 87cm fork length and weighing 15lbs.
St Brandon’s is also the most productive Indo-Pacific Permit fishery witnessed. When specifically targeting these gloriously finicky fish, guests can have multiple shots per day.
The GT fishing can be quite varied. Some days you can see over 100 fish and at other times none at all. St Brandon’s isn’t a place where you are going to get shots at GT’s everyday but it is certainly the place to break the 100 cm mark.
Bonefish, Indo-Pacific Permit, Giant Trevally, Bluefin Trevally, Golden Trevally & Greenspot Trevally.
Other notable fish species one can encounter on the flats include Golden, Yellow Dot and Green Spot Trevally.
Fishing will be organised from catamaran, on flats and from the shore using Zodiac rubber boats to deliver fishermen to the spots.
About St. Brandon
Saint Brandon’s (Also known as Cargados Carajos Shoals) is a group of over 50 small islands, coral ridges and vast sand flats which is cut by three major passes and extends 50 km from north to south.
Situated 268 nautical miles north-east of Mauritius’s main island this area is rich in fish stocks, flora and fauna. The magnificent condition of the coral reefs and the lobster infested outer reefs is the proof that except the small population of Creole natives who live on Raphael Island in the northern area, there has been very little human interference at St. Brandon since its have been first discovered.
