For sport fishing in the Indian Ocean and particularly in the Rodriguan waters, the season is taken into consideration when you book your fishing trip, even if fish are present all year around Rodrigues, making it a "multi-fisheries" destination "par excellence"
The season starts from September 20 for areas surrounding the island, depending on weather conditions.
For example the West Bench "Jiggers'land", distant 100 nautical miles from the island, the fishing season extends from October to May, depending on weather conditions and due to the geographical remoteness of the area.
The hurricane season affects the months of January and February. Fortunately, no cyclone in Rodrigues for the last 10 years. This period is where the waters are warmer, about 30ºC.
The island is Rodrigues Island Records and a true destination « multi-fisheries » : it is surrounded by an ocean to be difficult and sometimes stormy weather. It is often said that it is better to have "sea legs".
This is to avert these characteristics that I built L'oiseau des îles II, stable and functional, fishing remains a pleasure even when Mother Nature is fickle.
Also keep in mind one important thing: where the sea is too easy, fishing has become very hard. The potential of Rodrigues has been proven, simply put in place all the material for that.
Dozens of different species of fish inhabit the waters of Rodrigues, beautiful and colourful, they all have in common to be more fighting.
