Extreme Tropical Fishing – Nosy Be – Aviavy Fishing Club
Supporting responsible and sustainable recreational sport fishing. We encourage you to ‘catch & release’ in the best interests of the sport.
The waters around Nosy Be are ideal for practicing almost all fishing techniques: throwing poppers, trolling, jigging, bottom fishing and drift. Often around Nosy Be these different fishing techniques are practiced in the same day depending on certain conditions such as tides, times and coefficients but also the moon and the time of year are important factors that strongly influence the fishing around Nosy Be.
A day of fishing in Nosy Be traditionally begins with many skipjacks , we will use either live bait slow trolling (Catalina) in search of Marlin, or drift fishing for all pelagic predators, and bottom fishing for groupers and all benthic species.
Just a few miles off the coast of Nosy Be you can find various fishing spots such as ‘Banc of five meters’, the ‘Entry Banc’ or the ‘Unicorn Banc’. Just a few miles further we have hot spots like ‘Leven Banc’, ‘Snake Banc’ & ‘Big Castor Banc’. All of which are easily accessible by our fast speedboats and will satisfy the most passionate extreme tropical fisherman.
And for exotic thrill fans – Extreme Tropical Fishing | Aviavy Fishing Club | Nosy Be – also offers fishing camps around the famous Radama & Mitsio archipelagos.
The waters of Nosy Be are home to many species of fish such as the Giant Trevallies, the undisputed kings of popper fishing which are present all year round. Sailfish from July to October & you can try to catch these with your fly rod. These two species are the most sought after.
During your fishing trip to Nosy Be you can fight with a dozen varieties of kingfish, sixty different grouper species, sharks, barracudas, snappers, job fish, amber-jack’s, several varieties of tuna (yellow-fin, big eye, dog-tooth & the most numerous skip-jack).
