Bull, tiger and hammerhead sharks inhabit the large channels between the islands mainly at the beginning and end of the season. We do not usually go there but one can give it a try for a rather sporty fight with the big specimens, armed with exceptional baits: a whole trevally of 10 kg or 1/3 of a tarpon which they are particularly fond of.


For this, you will need big rig set-ups, wire leader and we have the rods you need (marlin rods with 80 lb Tiagra).


Thrills and spills guaranteed! Caution: catch and release is obligatory as these species are protected in the archipelago.


Offshore we fish for many mahi-mahi on 2 of the 3 FADs which we installed at the beginning of the season, areas where one could catch longfin tuna and where it is not uncommon to reel in sailfish or get a strike from a blue marlin while trolling between the different jigging zones.


On the bottom, while hunting for amberjacks we catch several kinds of groupers, but also big porgy and sometimes kassao, without giving up hope of stumbling upon an Atlantic wreckfish.


We also reel in spangled emperors of nice sizes (8/20 kg), sleeper sharks, meagre, cassava croaker of Gorée, horse-eye jack, black trevally, Senegal jack, African permit, bonefish (when fishing with live baits), bonito mackerels, bonito, tripletail, parrotfish, brown meagre; and I’m sure I forgot to mention some.
