We are delighted to be able to offer this tropical paradise in the Indian Ocean. This is a year round fishery and the majority of the game fish are permanently present. The waters surrounding Mitsio archipelago, in the north west point of Madagascar are home to a 70km long underwater continental shelf, this vast plateau has depths ranging to 90m, with an average of 40-50m. Many islands, underwater humps and reefs provide a wide choice of fishing spots, with additional pelagic activity.
Opportunities exist for jigging, popping, trolling, baitfishing and livebaiting, with the added bonus of bluewater within an hour of the base lodge if you wish to pursue the even larger pelagics.
