Seychelles - yet the name instantly triggers vivid associations of pristine beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, lush tropical nature and the famous, unique granite rock formations.
Less known is that this dream destination in the Indian Ocean also represents a first class fishing ground. Big Game Trolling for nearly all species of Billfish like Blue, Black & Striped Marlin, Sailfish and other large predators as Wahoo, Dorado, Barracuda, different species of Tuna and many more probably comes to mind first. But it is the variety of different fishing options at highest level that lets the quality of Seychelles´ sportsfishing stand out.
How about casting a popper for Bluefin-, Yellowspotted- and of course the fierce Giant Trevally (GT) which are abundant in hefty sizes and considered the ultimate task by many? Or are you a fly fishing addict? Then hook up with Bonefish and Milkfish. Another option is the modern speed jigging for Amberjack and Dogtooth Tuna. These and virtually countless other species of Snappers, Groupers and many more are also caught by various bottom fishing techniques, be it on natural bait or a variety of artificial lures.
Whatever your favourite style of fishing is: here in Seychelles you have a great chance to encounter an opponent that tests your limits. Follow the current situation by prevailing reports and find out about the fishing grounds, boat options as well as the right season for your way to fish.
