SOUDAN BANK FISHING TRIP IS A COMBINATION OF TROLLING, JIGGING AND POPPING.
Soudan bank is located at 100 nautical miles north east of Mauritius. It is more than 100 km2 and has a depth average of 50 meters up to only 15 meters on the peak.
The area offers the possiblities to practice different types of fishing such as:
Jigging: dog tooth tuna, yellow fin tuna, wahoo, giant trevally, amber jack, and grouper.
Trolling: blue/black marlin, sailfish, dog tooth tuna, yellow fin tuna, wahoo, dorado.
Popping: tuna, dorado or wahoo hunting the surface at the back of your boat.
The bank is a different type of fishing as you hardly see birds; we concentrate on the topography of the bottom and fish most of the time along the ramps and peaks. You can expect amazing suprises when fishing there and will most of the time have marlin strikes. We fully encourage marlin and shark release.
You will have the opportunity to practice stand up fishing against different species from 25 to 200 pounds with top class fishing equipement and highly experienced crew.
